Leading gene therapy researchers and clinicians illuminate the field-from basic vector technology to current and future clinical applications in neurology. The authoritative contributors provide cutting-edge reviews of the vectors available for gene transfer to the central nervous system, the strategies against CNS tumors, the potential strategies against neurologic disorder, and the limitations of today's gene therapy approaches. Also discussed are significant applications of gene therapy to brain tumors, Parkinson's disease, ischemia, and Huntington's chorea. Readers will learn the current delivery methods for transgenes, will learn the characteristics of transgene delivery vectors, and come to understand the therapy for both neuro-oncologic and neurologic disorders.

Gene therapy has tremendous potential for the treatment of neurological disorders. There has been substantial progress in the development of gene therapy strategies for neurological disorders over the last two decades. Gene Therapy in Neurological Disorders thoroughly reviews currently available gene therapy tools and presents examples of their application in a variety of neurological diseases. The book begins with general reviews of gene therapy strategies with a focus on neurological disorders. The remainder of the chapters present approaches to specific neurological disorders. Each chapter gives an in-depth introduction to the relevant field before diving into the specific tool or application. The book aims to help investigators, students and research staff better understand the principles of gene therapy and its application in the nervous system. Provides background information and experimental details of gene therapy tools applied for neuroscience research and neurological disorders Covers a broad range of gene delivery and regulation tools, therapeutic agents, and target cells, including emerging new technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing Discusses applications of gene therapy tools to neurological disorders including neurodegeneration, muscular dystrophy, trauma and chronic pain, and neoplastic diseases

This volume provides a clear and detailed roadmap of how to design and execute a gene therapy experiment in order to obtain consistent results. Chapters in this book disseminate bits of unknown information that are important to consider during the course of experimentation and will answer questions such as: What delivery vehicle do you use?; How will you ensure that your vector retains stability?; What expression system best fits your needs?; What route will you choose to deliver your gene therapy agent?; How will you model the neurodegenerative disorder that you aim to investigate and what are the proven methods to treat these disorders in preclinical models? Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and thorough, Gene Therapy for Neurological Disorders: Methods and Protocols, is a compilation of protocols and instructive chapters intended to give researchers, clinicians, and students of all levels, a foundation upon which future gene therapy experiments can be designed.

Das große Referenz- und Facharztbuch zur klinischen Neurologie liegt hiermit unter der Federführung der international renommierten Herausgeber und der Mitarbeit von über 150 Fachexperten als eine erweiterte und überarbeitete Neuauflage vor. In bewährter Form werden systematisch die aktuellen Erkenntnisse zum Stand von Klinik, Verlauf und Therapie neurologischer Erkrankungen zusammengefasst und für die pragmatische Anwendung gewichtet - nicht nur für häufige wie Schlaganfall, Epilepsie, Multiple Sklerose und M. Parkinson, sondern auch für seltene und komplexe Krankheitsbilder. Durch die zusätzlichen Kapitel Neuropädiatrie und Neurogeriatrie sowie die thematische Neuausrichtung einzelner Beiträge, z. B. zu Tinnitus, Schlafstörungen, vaskulären Malformationen oder zu neurokutanen Syndromen, hat die 7. Auflage viel Neues zu bieten. Das etablierte Werk - begründet von den Herausgebern Brandt/Dichgans/Diener - knüpft an den Erfolg der Vorauflagen an und ist für die alltägliche Arbeit von Fach- und Allgemeinmedizinern in Klinik und Praxis sowie für eine erfolgreiche Aus-, Fort- und Weiterbildung unersetzlich.

This volume aims to explore the latest developments in adeno-associated viral and lentiviral vectors as well as the gene therapy strategies for the most common neurological disorders, followed by chapters that include step-by-step guides to viral vector-based gene delivery in animal models used in the authors’ laboratories. Although safe gene manipulation in neural cells can be achieved, it may still be years away from efficacious gene-based treatment of neurological disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer’s diseases due to the complexity of the underlying genetic/molecular mechanisms and the difficulty of developing reliable animal models. Gene Delivery and Therapy for Neurological Disorders seeks to aid researchers in this vital work. Written in the popular Neuromethods series format, chapters include the kind of detailed description and expert implementation advice that leads to success in the lab. Meticulous and authoritative, Gene Delivery and Therapy for Neurological Disorders serves as an ideal guide for researchers attempting to explore the potentials of gene therapy for neurological disorders.

Protocols for Gene Transfer in Neuroscience Towards Gene Therapy of Neurological Disorders Edited by P. R. Lowenstein University of Manchester, UK and L. W. Enquist Princeton University, USA The brain and the cells that compose it have always presented unique barriers to any kind of outside interventions, including drug delivery, surgical procedures and the genetic manipulation of cells. However, these barriers are now being bypassed by the new technology of gene delivery. Protocols for Gene Transfer in Neuroscience is the first practical guide to gene delivery, providing over 150 easy to follow, step-by-step protocols, together with troubleshooting hints and the theoretical background needed for neuroscientists to understand, adapt and expand the technology as needed. Written by a team of international expert neuroscientists, geneticists, molecular biologists and biochemists, Protocols for Gene Transfer in Neuroscience describes the latest techniques from the top gene-delivery labs, ranging from physical transfection techniques, through the use of a wide range of viral vectors, to retrovirally transduced cell and bone marrow transplantation. Several variations of a single protocol are given, thus demonstrating how different labs have solved a common problem in different ways. The protocols are also indexed and cross-referenced so that an investigator can find all the details required for a particular problem.
