Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics: Emphasis on Nanotechnological Advances presents the latest information on the second most common neurodegenerative disorder in the elderly. Despite remarkable progress in various PD therapeutics, such as microRNAs and brain drug delivery systems, a few limitations impede their success. This book sheds light on the pros and cons of recently developed novel therapeutics. Very few books have highlighted the protective efficacy of natural products, antioxidants, and biomaterial design for other diseases.
- Emphasizes novel therapeutics for Parkinson's disease, including nanotechnology, natural products and antioxidants
- Discusses the pros and cons of recently developed therapy options for Parkinson's
- Focuses on the efficacy of nanotechnology in overcoming the blood-brain barrier and biomaterial design
M. Obulesu is a Scientist in ATG Laboratories, Pune, India. He has 19 years of research and teaching experience. His research areas are multifarious which include food science, pathology of Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and designing polymer based Biomaterials (Design of hydrogels etc.). He did Alzheimer's disease research and developed an aluminium induced neurotoxicity rabbit model. His present research focuses on development of redox-active injectable hydrogels of polyion complex. His research area also includes development of metal chelators to overcome metal induced toxicity. His books, 3 monographs entitled 'Alzheimer's Disease Theranostics (Elsevier (First Edition))" 'Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics: Emphasis on Nanotechnological Advances" (Elsevier (First Edition)), 'Turmeric and Curcumin for Neurodegenerative Diseases (Elsevier (First Edition))" and an editorial collection 'Phytomedicine and Alzheimer's Disease (Taylor and Francis (First Edition))" are accepted currently. He is the first and corresponding author for majority of his articles. He secured a certificate from Stanford University for the Scientific Writing course. He is on editorial board of a few pathology journals such as Journal of Medical Laboratory and Diagnosis, Journal of Medical and Surgical Pathology, Annals of Retrovirals and Antiretrovirals, Kenkyu Journal of Medical Science and Clinical Research, SciFed Oncology and Cancer Research Journal, Journal of Cancer and Cure. He is also on editorial board of nanotechnology journals such as SciFed Nanotech Research Letters, SciFed Drug Delivery Research, Current Updates in Nanotechnology and Journal of Nanotechnology and Materials Science.
