  • 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...

  • Anticarbohydrate Antibodiesby Paul Kosma

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Many pathogens and aberrant malignant cells express unique carbohydrates on their surface representing attractive targets for vaccine design. Considerable progress has recently been made in the identification of novel carbohydrate based vaccines and a large number has reached clinical phase studies. The success of several licensed carbohydrate based... 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...

  • Novel Immunologic Adjuvantsby Rino Rappuoli; Ennio De Gregorio

    Future Medicine Ltd 2011; US$ 184.00

    The study of adjuvants – substances added to vaccine formulations to increase efficacy –is one of the fastest growing disciplines in immunology and vaccine development. This book reviews the state-of-the-art of development of novel adjuvants and the science that supports them.There is an increasing need of novel adjuvants for preventive vaccines... more...

  • Plant-derived Vaccinesby Franco M Buonaguro

    Future Medicine Ltd 2011; US$ 184.00

    The enormous progress made in plant genomics is opening the possibility of using plants as bioreactors for the production of pharmaceutical products, ranging from immunogens (single peptides to complex structures such as virus-like particles) to adjuvants, microbicides and monoclonal antibodies. This book includes 11 chapters spanning most of the issues... more...

  • Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccinesby Ger T Rijkers

    Future Medicine Ltd 2012; US$ 136.00

    Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is a pathogen with significant disease implications, especially for the (very) young and the (very) old.

  • Innovation in Vaccinologyby Selene Baschieri

    Springer 2012; US$ 209.00

    Prevention of infectious diseases by vaccination is one of the most significant achievements of modern medicine. During the 20th century, the average human life span in the developed world was about 70 years and it is expected to increase, with a significant portion of this increase directly attributed to vaccination. Since the first empiric vaccination... more...

  • Notch Regulation of the Immune Systemby Freddy Radtke

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    Notch signaling regulates many cell fate decision and differentiation processes during embryonic development and tissue homeostasis. Moreover, disregulation of the pathway is associated with human disorders and cancer. In the last 15 years, it became evident that Notch plays important roles in the hematopoietic system as well as in the regulation of... more...
