We have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of Drug Repositioning: Approaches and Applications for Neurotherapeutics PDF Free Download.
Nervous system diseases represent a major health concern worldwide. Although an important financial and professional investment, their etiology and pathophysiology still remain mostly elusive. Moreover, the clinical need for disease-modifying therapies is still unmet.
In the last decades, traditional R&D has failed in identifying new effective therapies in many medical areas and drug repositioning has recently emerged as a promising alternative strategy to de novo drug discovery to improve and accelerate therapeutic development.
Features of Drug Repositioning: Approaches and Applications for Neurotherapeutics.
- For the first time, Drug Repositioning: Approaches and Applications for Neurotherapeutics reviews history and advances in drug repositioning, with a special focus on therapeutics for nervous system diseases.
- International experts from Academia, Industry and Non-profit organizations will provide different views on drug repositioning advantages, challenges, and specific applications, which will be covered for nervous system diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s diseases, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, ischemic stroke, and psychiatric disorders.
- This book provides a balanced overview and synthesis of drug repositioning concepts, methods, and applications for neurotherapeutics. It represents a valuable resource for students, scientists, and clinicians working in academic settings, industry, and government agencies within the fields of neuroscience, pharmacology, neurology, pharmaceutical sciences, drug discovery, and development.
