New Journal to Explore Neurodegenerative, Neuroprotective and Euroregenerative Therapies!
Date:10/2/2008

WESTON, Mass., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Weston Medical Publishing today announced publication of the first issue of Journal of Neurodegeneration and Regeneration. (ISSN 1932-1481) This new peer-reviewed journal is designed to explore all aspects of neurodegeneration, neuroprotection and neuroregeneration including the molecular mechanisms, experimental approaches and their relevance in treating neurodegenerative disorders and neuroregenerative therapies.

When making the announcement, Publisher, Richard A. DeVito Jr. pointed out that while diagnosis may be the first step on the road of long term care for neurodegenerative patients, the pot of gold at the end of this difficult road will come from the challenging new frontier of neuroprotection and neuroregeneration research.

With the introduction of Journal of Neurodegeneration and Regeneration, (available online free of charge at http://ejournal.neuroregen.com until October 15th, 2008), the top neurospecialists worldwide will meet this challenge and bring to the medical community a long awaited exploration of the on-going research being conducted in this critical field.

Said DeVito, "The element of urgency couldn't be clearer. The numbers speak for themselves. In the United States alone, almost five million suffer from Alzheimer's disease; one million from Parkinson's disease; 400,000 from multiple sclerosis; and 30,000 from ALS. Worldwide, these four diseases account for more than 20 million patients."

"Further," he went on to say, "It is generally accepted that things are going to get worse before they get better. Aging greatly increases the risk of neurodegenerative disease and the average age of Americans and the worldwide populations are increasing. Today, over 37 million Americans alone are over the age of 65. Within the next 30 years this number is likely to double, putting more and more people at increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases."

"Research," DeVito noted, "will lead to better diagnosis, more effective treatments and, perhaps, cures for diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, ALS and other diseases where few effective treatments and no cures are currently available."

The Journal of Neurodegeneration and Regeneration is guided by an international editorial review board of the foremost experts in the field under the leadership of co-Editors-in-Chief Dr. Philippe Taupin, PhD and Dr. Cathy Helgason, MD.
