This book provides basic and applied knowledge about FASD, its basic molecular mechanism of occurrence during prezygotic and postzygotic phase due to Ethanol-induced diversified charnolopathies. Basic knowledge of emerging charnolopharmacotherapeutics is provided for the safe and effective clinical management of FASD. The book will be valuable source of new knowledge for doctors, patients, medical students, teachers, researchers, and basic biomedical scientists.
The book will be highly useful for general public interested in learning more about FASD without any misconception and/or misunderstanding for its prevention and/or treatment to prevent chronic diseases, early morbidity, and mortality.
Neonatologists, Pediatricians, Neurologist, and Neuropsychiatrists will find this book interesting for the effective clinical management of FASD victims. The book will be of immediate interest to FASD parents and FASD victims to alleviate their sufferings.
Physicians interested in prescribing and learning more about FASD and their molecular and pharmacological mechanism(s) of neuroprotection will find this book high beneficial. They will be highly benefited from its informative and basic and clinically-interesting contents.
In general, the book will be a valuable source of knowledge for the basic researcher, clinically useful for the physician, and therapeutically-beneficial for FASD patients and their families.
In addition to physicians, the book can be a valuable for Masters and Ph. D students interested in conducting further research on FASD for the effective clinical management of various associated neurological and psychiatric disorders like ADHD in these patients.
Particularly, MD doctors, students, and professors will find this book interesting and informative to enhance their basic existing knowledge about FASD and its prevention and/or treatment for a better quality of life.
