Nutrition and immunology : principles and practice by M. Eric Gershwin( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Nutrition and Immunology: Principles and Practice, leading researchers and clinicians review the influence of diet on the immune system, and illuminate the extent to which diet-induced changes can contribute to the occurrence or prevention of selected diseases. Topics range from the quality of the immune response associated with nutrient deficiencies to the deterioration in the immune response resulting from select nutrient deficiencies. Also reviewed are the increased demand for antioxidant protection and tissue repair created by the consequences of immune activation, and the specific protein, vitamin, and lipid needs of the immune system. Extensive coverage is given to the impact of diet on such clinical issues as breast feeding, allergies, autoimmune diseases, cancer, perioperative condition, diabetes, allograft rejection, and oral disease. In all discussions the authors seek to clarify the complex interplay of nutrients in the modulation of the equally complex immune system. Nutrition and Immunology: Principles and Practice provides a comprehensive review of the role of nutrition in health, with a major focus on how diet can reduce the initial onset, as well as the progression, of numerous chronic diseases. Its state-of-the-art articles will help readers understand the molecular basis for improving health over the long term by defining the specific nutritional needs of the immune system throughout life, as well as during immunologic challenge, thus assuring the book's role as the new foundation reference in this dramatically developing field

In this commonsense book, Dr. Gershwin and Dr. Klingelhofer offer sensible, practical strategies for identifying the substances that cause allergies (allergens), the symptoms they cause, ways exposure to allergens can be avoided or reduced, and ways you can relieve the symptoms. Living Allergy Free also treats some reactions that are commonly assumed to be allergies, but are really sensitivity or irritant reactions, shows how they can be distinguished from true allergies, and tells you what to do about them. If you suffer from allergies-or if you think you do-Living Allergy Free is just what the doctor would order!

La 4e de couv. indique : "Diseases of the Sinuses: A Comprehensive Textbook of Diagnosis and Treatment, 2nd Edition, offers the definitive source of information about the basic science of the sinuses and the clinical approach to sinusitis. Since the widely praised publication of the first edition, understanding of sinus disease has changed dramatically, mainly as a result of recent developments and new discoveries in the field of immunology. This updated and expanded edition is divided into sections addressing, separately, the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, medical and surgical management of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis. Special entities such as autoimmune-related sinusitis, allergy and sinusitis, and aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease are discussed in separate chapters. The role of immunodeficiency is also addressed. The management section has been fully updated to incorporate new medical modalities and surgical procedures. Developed by a distinguished group of international experts who share their expertise and insights from years of collective experience in treating sinus diseases, the book will appeal to anyone who has an interest in sinus disease, including both physicians and allied health professionals. Internists, pediatricians, allergists, otolaryngologists and infectious disease specialists will find the book to be an invaluable, comprehensive reference. Physician assistants and nurse practitioners who work with specialists who treat sinus disease will also benefit from the book."
Cancer and autoimmunity by M. Eric Gershwin( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the two disciplines in parallel development for two decades, tumor immunology and transplantation immunology, the latter has thrived and has led to some of the most critical discoveries in immunobiology. The former continues to thwart both scientists and clinicians alike. The goal of immunologists in modern day research is to develop a simple and effective means to manipulate cancer <IT>in vivo, </IT> possibly encompassing several venues: identifying a phenotypic marker and the use of either active or passive immunization; include the use of passive reagents carrying "warheads" to selectively destroy cancer cells; or altering the basic process of cell survival. This excellent multidiscipline-authored volume presents a theme which has not been well described before. The papers include both basic and clinical science and range from sophisticated molecular biology to little more than phenomenology (e.g. the increased association of cancer in some autoimmune diseases and increased presentation of autoimmune phenomena in malignant condition). This, however, is state-of-the-art. This collection of themes will be of use not only to bench scientists, but also to clinicians who treat patients. The book represents progress at the cutting edge of this discipline, and points the way to further developments in the "black box" of immunology

Diagnostic criteria in autoimmune diseases by Yehuda Shoenfeld( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the Autoimmune Diseases Coordinating Committee (ADCC), between 14.7 and 23.5 million people in the USA-- up to eight percent of the population -- are affected by autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are a family of more than 100 chronic, and often disabling, illnesses that develop when underlying defects in the immune system lead the body to attack its own organs, tissues, and cells. In this book, the editors have gathered in a comprehensive handbook a critical review of more than 100 autoimmune diseases, divided into two main groups, namely systemic and organ-specific autoimmune diseases. A contemporary overview of these conditions with special emphasis on diagnosis is presented. Each chapter contains the essential information required by attending physicians as well as bench scientists to understand the definition of a specific autoimmune disease, the diagnostic criteria, and the treatment
