Erythropoietin (EPO) is a chemokine hormone that's generally allotted during the physique. as well as its conventional function as a hormone that stimulates pink blood mobilephone construction, in recent times many laboratories have proven that EPO can act as a neuroprotective compound in quite a few damage paradigms within the worried procedure. previous event with rather safeguard profile of this FDA-approved drug makes it an amazing candidate to take it into medical trials for neuroprotection. we're at the verge of significant medical trials utilizing this drug for neuroprotection in illnesses starting from stroke, to transverse myelitis to chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. this is often the 1st publication of its style that brings jointly researchers from many alternative disciplines of neuroscience to study the present state of the art in EPO and the fearful method. This ebook will profit scientists and clinicians attracted to neuroprotection within the broadest sense.

2002). Currently, a larger multi centre study is under way. 8. SUMMARY A primary goal, not only for stroke patients but also for other diseases of the CNS, is to protect neural function. Imitation of brain endogenous protective mechanisms may be the key to future successful approaches to neuroprotection; therefore activation and mimicry of endogenous mechanisms can be expected to be efficient and well tolerated (Ehrenreich 26 Chapter 2 and Siren, 2001b). In this respect, EPO may be a showpiece.
