  • Recent Advances on Model Hostsby Eleftherios Mylonakis; Frederick M. Ausubel; Michael Gilmore

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    Most studies of bacterial or fungal infectious diseases focus separately on the pathogenic microbe, the host response, or the characterization of therapeutic compounds. Compartmentalization of pathogenesis-related research into an analysis of the "pathogen", the "host," or the "antimicrobial compound" has largely been... more...

  • Current Topics in Innate Immunity IIby John D. Lambris; George Hajishengallis

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    Mounting evidence in the past decade indicates that innate immunity mediates functions above and beyond first-line defense against infection. It is now appreciated that innate immune mechanisms are critically involved in the development of adaptive immunity and, moreover, the regulation of diverse physiological and homeostatic processes. The latter... more...

  • The Forgotten Cureby Anna Kuchment

    Springer 2011; US$ 19.95

    This book fills a void. Never before has a comprehensive history of phage therapy-a once-neglected, now resurgent field-been written. Kuchment writes from the perspective of the eager student of history for the common reader. more...

  • Human Cell Transformationby Johng S. Rhim; Richard Kremer

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    Rhim and Kremer 's state-of-the-art volume on Human Cell Transformation: Role of Stem Cells and the Microenvironment highlights the latest findings on the current state of human cell transformation model systems and provides the insight into the molecular and cellular changes involved in the conversion of normal cells to neoplastic cells. Chapters... more...

  • Tumour-Associated Macrophagesby Toby Lawrence; Thorsten Hagemann

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    The subject of Tumour-Associated Macrophages is of interest in the cancer research community, and this book promises to be among the first to discuss a definitive theory on the role of macrophage in tumor development. more...

  • Viral Molecular Machinesby Michael G. Rossmann; Venigalla B. Rao

    Springer 2012; US$ 279.00

    This book will contain a series of solicited chapters that concern with the molecular machines required by viruses to perform various essential functions of virus life cycle. The first three chapters (Introduction, Molecular Machines and Virus Architecture) introduce the reader to the best known molecular machines and to the structure of viruses. The... more...

  • Direct-Fed Microbials and Prebiotics for Animalsby Todd R. Callaway; Steven C. Ricke

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    The practice of supplementing direct fed microbial and prebiotic additives to domestic animals during growth is becoming more widespread in food animal production. Beneficial effects particularly in cattle, pigs and poultry, including improved general health, foodborne pathogen reduction, more efficient food utilization, faster growth rate and increased... more...

  • Immunosenescenceby Andreas Thiel

    Springer 2012; US$ 219.00

    As individuals age, their ability to respond to and clear pathogens and to control unwanted immune reactions declines, leading to a greater incidence of certain infectious diseases, autoimmunity and general immune dysfunctions. Most remarkably, the efficacy of vaccines is frequently decreased in elderly persons. Therefore, age-associated dysfunctions... more...

  • Anoxiaby Alexander V. Altenbach; Joan M. Bernhard; Joseph Seckbach

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    Anoxia defines the lack of free molecular oxygen in an environment. In the presence of organic matter, anaerobic prokaryotes produce compounds such as free radicals, hydrogen sulfide, or methane that are typically toxic to aerobes. The concomitance of suppressed respiration and presence of toxic substances suggests these habitats are inhospitable to... more...

  • Mechanical Stretch and Cytokinesby Andre Kamkin; Irina Kiseleva

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    This book presents the latest findings in the field of investigation of molecular mechanisms of mechanical stretch and the role of cytokines in response of different tissues to it. On the one hand this volume demonstrates how mechanical stretch enhances cytokines production. It describes how cytokines influence tissues and cells on a background of... more...
