Precision Medicine in Neurodegenerative Disorders PDF Summary

Precision Medicine in Neurodegenerative Disorders, Part One, Volume 192 deals with the "Why" in the approach to slow the progression of those suffering from diseases of accelerated brain aging. Matching a biology-correcting therapy with those biologically suitable to benefit from such therapy represents the vision and mission of precision medicine, the highest level of personalized medicine. This first Handbook of Clinical Neurology volume is intended to provide a scholarly background on the framework, basic science, and conceptual pitfalls related to disease-modifying efforts in Parkinson, Alzheimer, and other neurodegenerative disorders. Among the topics covered are the different models of precision medicine, the lumping-versus-splitting tension in biomarker development and therapeutics, and the rationale for replacing the convergence of the prevailing autopsy-based nosology of neurodegenerative diseases with the divergence of a systems biology approach to human diseases. Specific chapters are dedicated to the promise of genetic subtypes and the lessons in disease modification offered by the fields of oncology and cystic fibrosis that can be adapted to the field of neurodegeneration. Summarizes theory and research on precision medicine in neurodegenerative disorders Covers basic biology, clinical trials and therapeutics Includes disease mechanisms, genetic subtypes, and more
