Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a secreted protein which induces the differentiation and survival of particular target neurons. This book presents recent work in the field from around the world, looking at areas such as NGF in animal models of atopic dermatitis, innovative strategies for controlled delivery and release of NGF in neurological applications, NGF signaling in neural cancer and metastasis, and NGF receptors in the human ovary. Other subjects covered include NGF and Alzheimer's disease, NGF-mediated effects in the development of orbitopathy associated with Grave's disease, and information processing by NGF-activated signaling networks. Information on the editor is not given.
