The purpose of the volume will be to set a basis for effective translational research. By inviting experts in the field of translational stroke research, each chapter will specifically address one or more components of preclinical stroke research. The emphasis will be placed on target identification and drug development using state-of-the-art in vitro and in vivo assays, in combination with in vitro toxicology assays, AMDE and clinical design.
From the reviews:
"This book is an excellent review of cerebral hemorrhage, ischemia, and hypoxia as it involves pathology, pathophysiology, and cellular tolerance. It will appeal to a wide variety of investigators in stroke, neurology, and neurosurgery research. I highly recommend it in Neurology Research." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, February, 2014)
"In Translational Stroke Research, Lapchak and Zhang have gathered an impressive, and very large, assortment of clinicians and researchers from around the world to offer reports of their studies, new ideas ... and directions for future research based mainly on pleotropic and combined therapies. ... The authors are to be congratulated on a great effort in furthering the available information and pitfalls in this field and pointing researchers and practitioners in a clinically significant direction. ... It makes for fascinating reading!" (Elizabeth A. M. Frost, Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology, Vol. 24 (4), October, 2012)
