  • The Quantal Theory of Immunityby Kendall A. Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 127.00

    This book explains how the immune system functions, namely, how individual cells of the immune system make the decision to respond or not to respond to foreign microbes and molecules, and how the critical molecules function to trigger the cellular reactions in an all-or-none (quantal) manner. To date, there has not been a complete description of the... more...

  • Ernährung im Kontext von Geschlechterverhältnissenby Katarina Schritt

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2010; US$ 39.99

    Ernährung wird in der Gesellschaft immer noch hauptsächlich als biologisches Phänomen wahrgenommen, obwohl soziokulturelle Faktoren eine maßgebliche Rolle dabei spielen, wie sich Menschen ernähren und warum sie dies so und nicht anders tun. In Politik und Wissenschaft wird gebetsmühlenartig propagiert, was als ?gesunde? Ernährung gilt. Kulturelle und... more...

  • Antibody Expression and Productionby Mohamed Al-Rubeai

    Springer 2011; US$ 279.00

    Engineered antibodies currently represent over 30 per cent of biopharmaceuticals in clinical trials and their total worldwide sales continue to increase significantly. The importance of antibody applications is reflected in their increasing clinical and industrial applications as well as in the progression of established and emerging production strategies.... more...

  • Bispecific Antibodiesby Roland E. Kontermann

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    The concept of using bispecific antibodies for cancer therapy by retargeting immune effector cells was developed several years ago. Initial clinical studies were rather disappointing mainly due to low efficacy, severe side effects and the immunogenicity of the bispecific antibodies. The progress in antibody engineering finally led to the generation... more...

  • Lyme Diseaseby J. J. Halperin

    CABI 2011; US$ 160.00

    Providing the medical practitioner with a broad scientific understanding, this book discusses the causative organism, its requisite ecosystem, disease epidemiology, host-Borrelia interactions, diagnostic testing, clinical manifestations, therapeutic options, and long term prognosis. It explicitly reviews both the basic biology of the infection and... more...

  • Gene Vaccinesby Josef Thalhamer; Richard Weiss; Sandra Scheiblhofer

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    The induction of antigen-specific immune responses after in vivo transfection with expression plasmids has triggered a revolution of vaccine research. After a first hype, evoked by the fascinating options of this method, clinical studies did not reach the ambitious aims and a phase of disillusion ensued. It became obvious that Gene vaccines displayed... more...

  • Neutrophils in Infectious Diseasesby Fabienne Tacchini-Cottier; Ger van Zandbergen

    Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 39.00

    Host defense to intracellular pathogens depends upon both innate and adaptive cell-mediated immune responses. Polymorphonuclear neutrophil leukocytes which belong to the innate immune system are the first cells that are recruited massively within hours of microbial infection. The importance of neutrophils in the development of an immune response is... more...

  • Regulation of Gastrointestinal Mucosal Growthby Jian-Ying Wang; Rao N. Jaladanki

    Biota Publishing 2011; US$ 40.00

    The mammalian gastrointestinal mucosa is a rapidly self-renewing tissue in the body, and its homeostasis is preserved through the strict regulation of epithelial cell proliferation, growth arrest, and apoptosis. The control of the growth of gastrointestinal mucosa is unique and, compared with most other tissue in the body, complex. Mucosal growth is... more...
