Neurological infections are relatively uncommon in Great Britain, Europe, and North America. The substantially widened differential diagnosis in a sick patient who has been abroad is particularly challenging. Viral encephalitis in terms of causes, investigation, and management is explored by researcher Peter Kennedy. Meningitis, with an emphasis on difficult and recurrent presentations, is considered by researcher Lionel Ginsberg. One difficult differential diagnosis of these infections is inflammatory or post-infectious encephalomyelitis or meningo-encephalomyelitis, and these are covered by researchers Luke Bennetto and Neil Scolding.

    Background: Production of the chemokine CCL2 by cells of the neurovascular unit (NVU) drives critical aspects of neuroinflammation. Suppression of CCL2 therefore holds promise in treating neuroinflammatory disease. Accordingly, we sought to determine if the compound bindarit, which inhibits CCL2...
