Neuroinfections and Neuroinflammation
Neuroinfectious diseases affect the nervous system, from the brain and spinal cord to muscles and nerves. There are a wide range of neuroinfectious diseases, including: Meningitis and encephalitis, Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, neurodegeneration associated with HIV and neurosarcoidosis, HTLV 1 hereditary spastic paraparesis myelopathy, a progressive spinal cord disease that results in painfully rigid, weak legs. Transverse myelitis, an inflammation that can trigger pain, weakness, paralysis, sensory problems, or dysfunction of the bladder and intestine on both sides of the spinal cord. These disease treatments may include, among other approaches, antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory or anticonvulsant drugs.
