This Focus on neuroinflammation has been developed by Nature Reviews Neurology in collaboration with the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) to complement the 5th EAN Congress, where the overarching theme was neuroinflammation. The importance of neuroinflammation across neurology is becoming increasingly clear. Besides neuroinflammatory diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, roles for neuroinflammation have been identified in many apparently non-inflammatory neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer disease, stroke and epilepsy, and can even contribute to neuroprotection and repair. The Focus includes specially commissioned articles written by leading experts who spoke on neuroinflammation at the EAN Congress, providing an opportunity to read further on the subjects discussed at the meeting and highlighting the importance of the field across neurological subspecialties. The Focus is also accompanied by a Collection of recent articles from Nature Reviews Neurology that further emphasize the universal importance of neuroinflammation and the clinical opportunities that neuroinflammatory mechanisms present.
