  • Interleukin-10by Francesco M. Marincola

    Landes Bioscience 2006; US$ 149.00

    Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is regarded as an immune suppressant cytokine. This reputation is due to the experimental observation that IL-10 decreases the function of antigen presenting cells and T helper 1 type immune responses. Surprisingly, however, IL-10 has potent anti-cancer effects since most experimental models demonstrate immune-mediated anti-tumor... more...

  • Molecular Autoimmunityby Moncef Zouali

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 209.00

    Illustrates how research advances our understanding of autoimmune disease mechanisms and identifies novel therapeutic targets that provide a hope for effective treatments. This book contains a number of advances in unraveling autoimmune reactions and the resulting armory of experimental immunotherapies for controlling autoimmune reactions. more...

  • Mechanisms of Lymphocyte Activation and Immune Regulationby Sudhir Gupta; Frederick W. Alt; Max D. Cooper; Fritz Melchers; Klaus Rajewsky

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 219.00

    Developments made in understanding various genetic and epigenetic regulatory processes that are critical for the generation of B cell repertoires include the role of chromatin regulation and nuclear organization in understating the IgH gene regulation. This work explains the role and mechanism of DNA repair proteins in somatic hypermutation. more...

  • T Cell Activation by Cd1 and Lipid Antigensby

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 219.00

    There is increasing evidence that the CD1 system has been conserved throughout mammalian evolution and is capable of presenting structurally diverse diacyglycerol, sphingolipid, polyisoprenol and lipopeptide antigens. These features of CD1 antigen presentation systems now point to a new and expanded view of the natural function of ab T cells, which... more...

  • Fas Signalingby Harald Wajant

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 259.00

    Focuses on the signaling mechanisms and biology of the prototypic death receptor Fas, also called CD95 or APO-1. This book aims to provide the reader with a survey of the various aspects of Fas biology and the open questions of the field are addressed. It is intended for Ph D and post-doctoral students starting to work in the field. more...

  • Defending Lifeby Elling Ulvestad

    Springer 2007; US$ 259.00

    Discusses the relationship between hosts and parasites. This book contains detailed descriptions of the immune system and the microbial world as well as methodological and conceptual clarifications. It is of interest not only to biologists, medical scientists, physicians and philosophers of science, but also microbiologists and immunologists. more...

  • Killer Cell Dynamicsby Dominik Wodarz

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 149.00

    Reviews how mathematics can be used in combination with biological data in order to improve understanding of how the immune system works. This book also provides both an introduction to the field of mathematical immunology, and an overview of many topics which are subjects of research, covering a variety of immunological topics. more...

  • Nutrition and Immune Functionby P.C. Calder; C.J. Field; H.S. Gill

    CABI 2002; US$ 120.00

    This text provides a review of the roles of specific nutrients in maintaining the immune response and host protection against infection. It also considers the influence of various factors, such as exercise and ageing, on the interaction between nutrition and immune function more...

  • Molecular Analysis of B Lymphocyte Development and Activationby Harinder Singh; Rudolf Grosschedl

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 289.00

    The B lymphocyte lineage represents an important paradigm for exploring the molecular mechanisms underlying cell fate specification, differentiation and cellular activation. Major advances have been achieved in our understanding of the transcriptional control of early B cell development and terminal plasma cell differentiation. more...

  • Current Concepts in Autoimmunity and Chronic Inflammationby A. Radbruch; P.E. Lipsky

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 239.00

    The ethiopathologies of autoimmune diseases are complex. A broad variety of cell types and gene products are involved. This book explores clinical and experimental evidence suggesting that the importance of an individual factor changes during the course of the disease. more...
