Immunity: The Immune Response to Infectious and Inflammatory Disease presents an engaging insight into one of the most intricate yet conceptually challenging biological systems. With a unique emphasis on the immune response to infection, it builds up a complete picture of the immune system as a dynamic interface with the outside world.
Covers the anatomy of the immune system, the cells and sections of the immune system, mounting an immune response, disorders of the immune system, immunity and cancer, frontiers in immunology, and much more. Glossary. Color illustrations.
This book demonstrates that nutrients play a direct role as co-factors and regulators of the immune system. The book also shows that modulating the immune response with nutrients can provide a fundamental approach to preventive medicine.;Containing nearly 2300 bibliographic citations as well as illustrative figures, tables, and micrographs, this book is designed to be of interest to clinical immunologists, immunology and vitamin researchers, nutrition specialists, paediatricians, neonatologists, and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and medical school students in these disciplines.

Using the published work of Nobel Laureate Niels Kaj Jerne, this book shows how he developd his ideas. The book is a compilation of his published work, but in fact it is much more than that. Whether the reader wants to read the book systematically, or only browse, it opens a fascinating world of hypotheses, theories, facts and vistas. His selection theory, his view of how immunological diversity is created, and his concept of lymphocytes interacting as a network, reveals Jerne's revolutionary spirit. The book ought to be a rich source of inspiration for everyone interested in science and how science is made.

The immune system is crucial to the normal functioning of the human body. As the body's "military," it prevents invaders from entering and destroys those who slip past its defenses. The Immune System discusses the human body's fundamental defense system, from its component parts to what happens when the body's defenses are breached. Common and uncommon immune disorders are also discussed, as are potential new therapies to enhance or repair the immune system. Packed with full-color photographs and illustrations, this absorbing book provides students with sufficient background information through references, Web sites, and suggested reading for further study.

In this book, the physiologic bases of ocular immune privilege and the distinctive systemic immune responses elicited by eye derived antigens are described. Several chapters discuss the pathogeneses of these disorders which arise from infections, autoimmunity, and neoplasms. Finally, chapters devoted to corneal and retinal transplantation describe attempts to exploit ocular immune privilege to promote graft survival and thereby cure blindness. Ophthalmologists, both clinicians and physician scientists, general and tumor immunologists, transplantation biologists and anyone seeking to understand the immunopathogenic diseases that threaten vision will appreciate the information presented in this book.
