Microbe hunters, then and now( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses two important aspects of tuberculosis. The first half reviews some of the biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology of M. tuberculosis and its interactions with macrophages. The second half deals with the interactions of the tubercle bacillus with the host immune system in experimental animals and humans, which may lead to the development of protective immunity or may produce immunopathologic reactions and tissue destruction. The special feature of this book is the in-depth nature of the various aspects of the bacterium and the host immune response to it. The reader will derive a better understanding of the tubercle bacillus and tuberculosis, and of the intricate interactions of the pathogen and the host which can lead either to protective immunity or to disease

The role of nitric oxide in physiology and pathophysiology by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains scientific papers delivered at the Second Annual Symposium titled "The Role of Nitric Oxide in Physiology and Pathophysiology". The symposium was held in Philadelphia at the Jefferson Cancer Institute on October 25, 1993. There were eight speakers selected to participate in the symposium. Nitric Oxide (NO), an endogenous free radical, has been shown recently to mediate several important biological effects. It plays a neuro-transmitter like role in vascular endothelium, a second-messenger role in N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) responsive neurons in the central nervous system (CNS), a neurotoxic role after its release from these neurons, and cytotoxic role after its release by macrophages. In this volume we review among other topics the basic chemistry and physical properties of NO and its various redox forms, and their biochemical mechanism of action, NO synthase isozymes and NO synthase structures, mechanism of NO synthesis, regulation of NOS expression and post-translational modification, NO scavengers and prevention of septic shock, and mechanisms of CNS damage involving NO in virus infections
DNA vaccination/genetic vaccination by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume highlights an exciting and novel area that lies between two fields: gene therapy and vaccination. The application of gene delivery for the in vivo stimulation of immune responses has implications not only for vaccine development but also for the growing area of immunotherapy. Leading laboratories in the area of DNA vaccines have contributed to this important field. Topics covered include applications of genetic vaccines to herpes, hepatitis, cancer autoimmune disease, parasitic diseases, as well as retroviral infections including AIDS. The development of this technology from small animal systems to non-human primates and its implications to man is discussed
Retrovirus infections of the nervous system : current and future perspectives by Michael B. A Oldstone( Book )

11 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume reports on the present state of research into retrovirus infections and related diseases of the nervous system. Today HTLV-1 and possibly closely related HTLV-2 are associated with a variety of human neurological diseases, and research activities in this field may show that human retroviruses can cause a variety of human diseases in addition to those affecting the nervous system. The specific experimental models discussed are the wild mouse ecotropic virus, Moloney murine leukemia virus, and the study of retrovirus infection in nonhuman primates
The interface between innate and acquired immunity by Max D Cooper( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics of this volume include regulation of the helper T cell subset involved in inflammatory responses versus the subset of helper T cells involved in promoting B cells responses in humoral immunity, the regulation of T cell activity in inflammatory and autoimmune disease by the tumor necrosis factor superfamily of receptors and their ligands, the wide array of inhibitory and activating receptor that regulate natural killer cell function, phylogeny of Ig gene superfamily members linked to the major histocompatibility gene complex, the IgFc receptor family and a newly discovered family of Fc receptor homologs, the role of complement in linking innate and adaptive immunity, and manipulation of the potential for plants to protect themselves by innate and adaptive responses to viruses
Borna disease by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Borna disease was first described over 200 years ago, in what is now Southeastern Germany, as a fatal neurologic affliction of horses and was considered a curiosity for many decades. The causative agent was unknown, and the animal species infected in nature were limited to horses and sheep. Today, as described in this volume, the host range has extended to all warm-blooded animals, the genes and proteins of the virus have been identified, and many of the mechanisms responsible for behavioral disturbances are understood. Serologic studies suggest that BDV or related agents are likely to play a role in human neuropsychiatric diseases

Current topics in microbiology and immunology = Ergebnisse der Mikrobiologie und Immunitätsforschung, 57 by Werner Arber( Book )

30 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phenomena as diverse as tuberculin sensitivity, delayed sensitivity to soluble proteins other than tuberculin, contact allergy, homograft rejection, experimental autoallergies, and the response to many microorganisms, have been classified as members of the class of immune reactions known as delayed or cellular hypersensitivity. Similarities in time course, histology, and absence of detectable circulating immunoglobulins characterize these cell-mediated immune reactions in vivo. The state of delayed or cellular hypersensitivity can be transferred from one animal to another by means of sensitized living lymphoid cells (CHASE, 1945; LANDSTEINER and CHASE, 1942; MITCHISON, 1954). The responsible cell has been described by GOWANS (1965) as a small lymphocyte. Passive transfer has also been achieved in the human with extracts of sensitized cells (LAWRENCE, 1959). The in vivo characteristic of delayed hypersensitivity from which the class derives its name is the delayed skin reaction. When an antigen is injected intradermally into a previously immunized animal, the typical delayed reaction begins to appear after 4 hours, reaches a peak at 24 hours, and fades after 48 hours. It is grossly characterized by induration, erythyma, and occasionally necrosis. The histology of the delayed reaction has been studied by numerous investigators (COHEN et al., 1967; GELL and HINDE, 1951; KOSUNEN, 1966; KOSUNEN et al., 1963; MCCLUSKEY et al., 1963; WAKSMAN, 1960; WAKSMAN, 1962). Initially dilatation of the capillaries with exudation of fluid and cells occurs
