Neurogenic Drugs and Compounds to Treat CNS Diseases and Disorders.

Summary of "Neurogenic Drugs and Compounds to Treat CNS Diseases and Disorders."

Neurological diseases and related conditions affect an estimated 1 billion of individuals worldwide [1]. There is still no cure for neurological diseases and disorders, barely a few treatments more or less efficient. This mandates the design and development of novel paradigms and strategies, to discover and develop new treatments and cures for these diseases. Neurogenesis occurs in the adult brain of mammals primarily in two regions, the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus and the subventricular zone, in various species including in humans. Neural progenitor and stem cells have been isolated, propagated and characterized in vitro from the adult brain of mammals, including humans. The confirmation that neurogenesis occurs in the adult brain and neural stem cells (NSCs) reside in the adult central nervous system (CNS) of mammals, opens new avenues and opportunities for treating neurological diseases and injuries [2].

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Chinese herbal or plant extracts which are used as drugs to treat diseases or promote general well-being. The concept does not include synthesized compounds manufactured in China.

Conditions characterized by an alteration in gustatory function or perception. Taste disorders are frequently associated with OLFACTION DISORDERS. Additional potential etiologies include METABOLIC DISEASES; DRUG TOXICITY; and taste pathway disorders (e.g., TASTE BUD diseases; FACIAL NERVE DISEASES; GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL NERVE DISEASES; and BRAIN STEM diseases).

Drugs used by veterinarians in the treatment of animal diseases. The veterinarian's pharmacological armamentarium is the counterpart of drugs treating human diseases, with dosage and administration adjusted to the size, weight, disease, and idiosyncrasies of the species. In the United States most drugs are subject to federal regulations with special reference to the safety of drugs and residues in edible animal products.

Drugs used to treat or prevent skin disorders or for the routine care of skin.

Dysfunction of the URINARY BLADDER due to disease of the central or peripheral nervous system pathways involved in the control of URINATION. This is often associated with SPINAL CORD DISEASES, but may also be caused by BRAIN DISEASES or PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES.
