Animal models of T cell-mediated skin diseases by T Zollner( )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pharmaceutical companies are spending increasing amounts of money on drug discovery and development. Nevertheless, attrition rates in clinical development are still very high, and up to 90% of new compounds fail in clinical phase I - III trials, which is partially due to lack of clinical efficacy. This indicates a strong need for highly predictive in vitro and in vivo models. The "50th International Workshop of the Ernst Schering Research Foundation" focussed on "Animal Models of T Cell-Mediated Skin Diseases". Such animal models should have impact not only on inflammatory dermatoses but also on other inflammatory disorders due to their model character. The current volume summarises recent advances in animal research that are important for anti-inflammatory drug discovery

Immune response and the eye by J. Wayne Streilein( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second edition of Immune 'Response and the Eye' highlights recent insights into the 'dangerous compromise' between the immune system and the eye, which protects the eye against pathogens while limiting inflammation and immune-mediated injury to ocular tissues with little or no regenerative potential. It discusses the broad spectrum of physiological, immunological, anatomical, and biochemical adaptations that conspire to closely regulate the tone and tenor of immune responses in the eye. This volume further describes immune-mediated diseases that occur when the compromise between the immune
Neuroimmunoendocrinology( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The explosion of information on immuneneuroendocrine interactions has continued unabated since the first and second editions of this volume appeared in 1988 and 1992. This third revised and enlarged edition offers an authoritative update on the latest advances in knowledge of the molecular, structural, and cellular bases of bidirectional communication between the immune and neuroendocrine systems. The eight invited chapters review current evidence that the immune system produces and responds to neuroendocrine peptide hormones and neurotransmitters; that the nervous system produces and responds to cytokines; that the immune system can regulate the neuroendocrine system and vice versa; that the immune system is innervated, and that the neuroendocrine and immune systems share a set of hormone and cytokine receptors. All chapters and bibliographies from the second edition have been expanded to include the most recent literature in these areas. In addition, the text provides a new chapter which is the first to compare the three-dimensional structures of cytokines and hormones complexed with their receptors. As the only text to provide an up-to-the-minute account of the cellular, molecular and structural mechanisms of communication between the immune and neuroendocrine systems, this well-written volume will be of interest to many scientists in the fields of immunology, endocrinology, physiology, neuroscience and structural biology, and will also be a valuable resource for clinicians
Immunological mechanisms in asthma and allergic diseases : symposium held on the occasion of prof. A. Barry Kay's 60th birthday and 20th year as head of department, London, June 1999 by Douglas S Robinson( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This book explores the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in asthma and allergic diseases, from basic immunology to the treatment of patients. Arising from a special symposium held to celebrate Professor A. Barry Kay's 20th anniversary as Head of the Department of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the National Heart and Lung Institute, London, the publication presents 18 review articles by an impressive cross section of experts in the field. Topics considered include Th1 and Th2 cells, the regultion of Th2 cytokine transcription, the role of T cells in the immunopathogenesis of asthma, and MHC-restricted IgE-independent T-cell-induced late-phase responses in human subjects. Further chapters focus on eosinophil adhesion and activation, the role of C-C chemokines in the recruitment of eosinophils, and the interactions between eosinophils and fibroblasts. T-cell recruitment and T-cell interactions in cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity and fibrotic lung disease are discussed, as is the molecular pathology of allergic disease. Finally, treatment approaches are considered in chapters on the molecular basis of corticosteroid actions in asthma, immunosuppression in asthma, and immunotherapy of allergic diseases
Immunopathogenetic Aspects of Disease Induced by Helminth Parasites( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just as the magnitude of the growth and developmental problems attributable to human helminthiasis are being fully realized, we are able for the first time to describe defined immune responses giving rise to the pathological lesions seen. On the basis of the different sets of cytokines produced by CD4+ T cells, these responses can be classified according to the Th1/Th2/Th0 paradigm. Deleterious inflammatory responses to metazoan parasites appear to be consistently associated with a highly polarized Th2 cytokine profile. Thus, host-parasite models involving specific enteric and tissue helminths have provided seminal data on immunoregulatory and immunopathogenetic responses that are more broadly generalizable to the entire Th1/Th2 paradigm. The first three articles in this volume present an overview of recent advances in the understanding of the induction of IgE, eosinophilic, and cytokine regulatory responses to helminthic infection. Subsequent articles comprehensively review immunopathogenetic aspects of schistosomiasis, hookworm infection, echinococcosis, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, toxocariasis, and cysticercosis, and, at the same time, emphasize key directions and priorities. Conclusions from animal models of infection are set in the context of human disease wherever possible. For all immunologists with an interest in cytokine biology and for those interested in the biology of tropical infectious diseases this volume is essential reading
Human eosinophils : biological and clinical aspects( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides the reader with a comprehensive survey of the major aspects of human eosinophilic biology and immunology as well as the most clinically relevant aspects of eosinophil-related disorders. Expert contributions cover the ultrastructural and phenotypic characteristics of human eosinophils, and their fundamental biochemical features including receptors for IgE and chemokines. The production of cytokines and their role in the activation of eosinophils are reviewed. Furthermore, the classic eosinophil-related disorders such as hypereosinophilia, drug reactions, allergic disorders and some cardiovascular diseases are described. Each of the chapters is written by an investigator actively engaged in research on the topic under consideration. The material compiled in this volume will be of interest to all those working in allergology, immunology, biochemistry and pulmonary medicine."--Jacket

Immunology of Intracellular Parasitism( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intracellular prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms cause some of the most intractable problems in the fields of human and animal infectious diseases. Such infections are characteristically long and chronic and accompanied by deleterious immunopathological changes. The nine chapters in this volume, all written by internationally acknowledged experts in their fields, explore the immunological features common to representative intracellular organisms and also the special features whereby particular species evade immune attack and how they are destroyed with special reference to experimental and human listeriosis, tuberculosis, leishmaniasis, toxoplasmosis, African and American trypanosomiasis, malaria, cryptosporidiosis and the cattle disease theileriosis. The emphasis is on the roles of lymphocytes, macrophages, NK cells, cytokines and the contrasting roles of Th1/Th2 cells in protective and counter-protective immune responses. The importance of understanding these phenomena for the development of vaccines, for strategies for ameliorating immunopathological responses and for explaining why some infections are important concomitants in AIDS while others are not is stressed. This volume brings together and establishes links between diverse studies concerning the immunological aspects of the host-parasite relationship otherwise scattered throughout the literature. Authoritative and up-to-date, it will be of particular interest to anyone working or teaching in the fields of immunology, parasitology, microbiology and infectious diseases
CD14 in the Inflammatory Response( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a world full of pathogens the ability to detect an incipient infection and to respond rapidly and appropriately to it is a decisive part of our survival strategy. The innate immune system provides the first response to an infection by initiating an inflammatory response and the monocyte surface molecule CD14 is a key element in this response system. The initial chapters in this volume describe the structure and ligand interactions of this important receptor molecule which is involved both in inflammation and in some aspects of apoptosis. The very recent results which illuminate the probable signal transduction pathways are also described. Overactivation of the inflammatory response can lead to systemic inflammation and septic shock. Attempts to intervene clinically in this system have been disappointing, and the reasons for these failures are discussed in the context of the expression of TNF which is upregulated by CD14. A discussion of new data on the clinical course of shock and the currently emerging therapeutic strategies rounds off the book. The information compiled in this well-edited volume will be of use to everyone working on problems of inflammation - a topic where fundamental research and clinical medicine meet. Clinicians will find the current state of scientific knowledge on the inflammatory response as induced via CD14 presented in a readable form, while the clinical aspects discussed will be of particular interest to scientists and students who lack a medical background
IL-12( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions collected in this volume represent the most recent findings, reviewed by leading scientists in the field, on several different aspects of IL-12 biology. The opening chapter analyzes the molecular regulation of IL-12 production and its immunomodulatory activities. This is followed by three contributions describing the structure of the IL-12 receptor and its role in determining the early events in the differentiation of T cell subsets. The modulation of IL-12 activities by other cytokines such as TGF-Beta, IFN-Gamma and IL-4 is also addressed. IL-12 is a key cytokine that controls infectious diseases and its role in leishmania, candida, and protozoal infections is specifically examined. In addition, IL-12 provides a new tool to explore the regulatory role of the immune system in the control of tumor development and a potential new drug which is already being tested in clinical trials. Finally, the role of IL-12 in Th1-mediated autoimmune diseases and the potential for immunotherapy based on IL-12 targeting is discussed. Collectively, these contributions give a detailed account of the present knowledge on critical aspects of IL-12. The well-edited and stimulating material offered in this volume will be of interest to all immunologists, in particular to those interested in the different facets of the Th1/Th2 dichotomy
