Cell Biology and Pathology of Myelin Evolving Biological Concepts and Therapeutic Approaches. Editors: Juurlink, B.H.J., Devon, R.M., Doucette, J.R., Nazarali, A.J. Cell Biology and Pathology of Myelin: Evolving Biological Concepts and Therapeutic Approaches (Alschul Symposia Series) Juurlink, Bernhard H.J. Proceedings of the . Cell biology and pathology of myelin. New York: Plenum Press, © (OCoLC) Online version: Cell biology and pathology of myelin. New York: Plenum Press, © (OCoLC) Material Type: Conference publication, Internet resource: Document Type: Book.   The diseases of myelin, which are particularly well served by this two-volume book, include multiple sclerosis and acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, as well as a host of hereditary disorders of central and peripheral myelin. The book is organized into sections that address the functional biology of myelin and glial cells 5/5(1).

This chapter examines and evaluates the therapeutic potential of achieving remyelination by transplantation of myelin-forming cells. It also illustrates the power of glial-cell transplantation for examining aspects of glial-cell biology . The discussion of myelin pathology encompasses a wide range of diseases and conditions, including, for example, multiple sclerosis, Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, brain tumors of glial cell . Diseases affecting the myelin sheath encompass a wide variety of clinical and experimental conditions. This chapter discusses the essentials of the processes of demyelination and remyelination, and . Linking basic science to clinical application throughout, Histology and Cell Biology: An Introduction to Pathology, 5th Edition, helps students build a stronger clinical knowledge base in the challenging .

The formation of myelin involves the extension and biochemical modification of plasma membranes of oligodendrocytes or Schwann cells (Morell, et al., ). Although there is a continuous surface. This book presents state of the art knowledge on the structure and function of myelin in the central and peripheral nervous systems under normal and pathological conditions. Implications of recent research on myelin-forming glial cells are explained, and diverse myelin .

Current research on oligodendrocyte biology, the pathology of MS, imaging of lesions and the biology of remyelination are paving the way toward opening this new translational frontier. Professor Duncan and Professor Franklin have assembled a broad group of experts in the fields of glial cell biology Reviews: 1.
