Editors: Laszlo Vecsei (University of Szeged)
Book Description:
This book focuses on the metabolism, analytical chemistry and role of kynurenine metabolites in different disorders of the central nervous system. Furthermore, neurodegenerative models and pharmacological investigations with kynurenine metabolites and possible therapeutic perspectives are discussed.
