The Reticuloendothelial system : a comprehensive treatise by Herman Friedman( Book )

35 editions published between 1980 and 1986 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive treatise on the reticuloendothelial system is a project jointly shared by individual members of the Reticuloendothelial (RE) Society and bio medical scientists in general who are interested in the intricate system of cells and molecular moieties derived from those cells which constitute the RES. It may now be more fashionable in some quarters to consider these cells as part of what is called the mononuclear phagocytic system or the lymphoreticular sys tem. Nevertheless, because of historical developments and current interest in the subject by investigators from many diverse areas, it seems advantageous to present in one comprehensive treatise current information and knowledge con cerning basic aspects of the RES, such as morphology, biochemistry, phylogeny and ontogeny, physiology, and pharmacology as well as clinical areas including immunopathology, cancer, infectious diseases, allergy, and hypersensitivity. It is anticipated that, by presenting information concerning these apparently het erogeneous topics under the unifying umbrella of the RES, attention will be focused on the similarities as well as interactions among the cell types constitut ing the RES from the viewpoint of various disciplines. The treatise editors and their editorial board, consisting predominantly of the editors of individual vol and enormous task umes, are extremely grateful for the enthusiastic cooperation undertaken by members of the biomedical community in general and especially and Japanese Reticuloen by members of the American as well as European dothelial Societies

Host defenses to intracellular pathogens by Toby K Eisenstein( Book )

9 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are pleased to present to our readers the Proceedings of the International Symposium "Proteases: Potential Role in Health and Disease" which was held in WUrzburg (FRG) during October 17-20, 1982. The topics discussed included those dealing with the physiology and pathophysiology of proteases and their inhibitors, the interactions of proteases and hormones, the kallikrein-kinin system, complement and the coagulation system, the function of proteases in the kidney and the intestinal tract as well as the role of proteases in lung diseases, pancreatitis, arthritis and hypercatabolic states (multiple trauma, septicemia, acute renal failure). The papers presented answered many questions, but raised many more concerning the significance of proteases and their inhibitors in clinical medicine. It was unfortunately impossible in this volume to include the extended, lively and extremely stimulating discussions which were enjoyed by the participants during the conference. The meeting has provided a unique framework for close interaction between scientists from various disciplines, including biochemistry, physiology, surgery, anesthesiology, endocrinology, hematology, pulmonologist and nephrology
The reticuloendothelial system in health and disease : [proceedings] by Reticuloendothelial Society( Book )

28 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extraordinary development of the knowledge, concepts and biomedical applications has occurred during the past two decades in the biological sciences, including the Reticuloendothelial System (RES). For example, it is now widely recognized that distinct classes of cells are involved in the recognition of "exogenous" invaders of the body such as microorganisms and other foreign antigens, as well as of "endogenous" parasites represented by transformed neoplastic cells and altered "self" antigens. Prominent among cell populations involved in such recognition of antigens and subsequent immune responses are those constituting the RES. In recent years, there has been much discussion and indeed controversy as to what constitutes such a system and even whether the term "RES" is appropriate. Some investigators feel that the phagocytes are the most important cells of the RES as they play a major role in the defense mechanism of the host. Mononuclear phagocytes include tissue macrophages as well as circulating monocytes and their precursors. Although phagocytosis is a major functional activity, it is only one of their several functions. The important role of phagocytes and other mononuclear cells in antibody formation, cell-mediated immunity, specific and non-specific resistance to microorganisms and tumor cells, as well as homeostatic adjustments in general has become the focus of attention for many investigators. The Reticuloendothelial Society, which is concerned with the advancement of knowledge concerning the many diverse functions of RE cells, organizes national and international meetings and publishes a scientific journal. The Seventh International Congress of the RES Society was held in Pamplona, Spain, together with the First Scientific Meeting of the European RES Society on September 15-20, 1975. The Congress had as its scientific objective a wide range of subjects concerning the RES in health and disease. Special reference was given to macrophage structure, ontogeny and classification of cell populations. Emphasis was placed on the function and biochemistry of macrophages and other cells of the RES in the modulation of the immune response, their role in tumor and transplantation immunology, and their influence in regulating the growth and function of other cell types. The secretion of soluble materials by macrophages and lymphocytes and the mode of action of chemotherapeutic drugs and other agents on RE cell function and immune reactivity were also stressed. A symposium was presented each morning during the Congress with five to six internationally renowned biomedical and basic scientists who discussed specific aspects of the RES in detail. Each afternoon was devoted to two simultaneous scientific sessions where short papers were presented on subjects of current interest and relevance to the RES. Workshops devoted to particularly important phases of the RES were also held. These volumes constitute the published record of the proceedings of the symposia, the scientific paper sessions, and the workshops. However, the written contributions are not arranged exactly as presented at the Congress, but rather these two volumes intersperse papers selected for their current relevance. The first volume includes papers given during the first half of the Congress and is entitled "Functions and Characteristics of the RES". The second volume comprises papers given during the second half of the Congress and is entitled "Immunologic and Pathologic Aspects of the RES". The setting for this meeting was in the magnificent Basque country of northern Spain. Pamplona, founded in 75 B.C. by Pompey and captured in 778 by Charlemagne, is a city of great tradition and charm. The nine-day Fiesta de San Fermin is still celebrated by running the bulls through the streets crowded with enthusiastic spectators. The sidewalk cafes on Plaza de Mayor are festive and reminiscent of the vivid descriptions left by Hemingway. In contrast, the Universidad de Navarra is a modern, beautifully furnished and equipped facility, which added the final touch of perfection to a wonderful Congress
Neuroimmune circuits, drugs of abuse, and infectious diseases by Herman Friedman( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume focuses on the relationship between the nervous and the immune system with regard to the effects of drugs of abuse and infections, including infection caused by the immunodeficiency virus which causes AIDS, the number one health problem worldwide. Chapters focus on the brain-immune axis, detailing the effects of drugs of abuse. It is well known that recreational drugs of abuse such as morphine, cocaine, and marijuana, as well as other drugs, including the legal drugs alcohol and nicotine, are used by large numbers of individuals. Serious concerns have been raised about the consequences of using such drugs, especially in relation to their effects on normal physiological responses, including immune mechanisms. It is now widely recognized not only that many drugs of abuse have serious consequences on normal parameters of neurologic and neuroendocrine systems in general but also that effects on those systems, in turn, may affect indirectly immunity and also directly affect immune systems. Much data has now been accumulated showing that drugs of abuse markedly alter the immune response in human populations as well as in experimental animals, both in vivo and in vitro. Furthermore, studies on microbial infections have shown that many drugs of abuse are associated with increased susceptibility to infectious diseases, especially opportunistic intracellular microorganisms, including viruses such as HIV which causes AIDS. The mechanisms whereby drugs of abuse increase the likelihood of infections by opportunistic microorganisms in humans as well as in experimental animals are delineated. This volume will further the understanding of the impact of drugs of abuse on the brain-immune axis and its relationship to immunomodulation and infection, especially that caused by the AIDS virus
Herpesviruses and immunity by Peter G Medveczky( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remarkable ability of herpesviruses to escape immunity brings together the two disciplines of immunology and virology in an inextricable way. Because herpesvirus can induce, suppress, and fool the immune system, the most productive herpesvirologists are also expert immunologists, and the results of this latest interdisciplinary effort document the interactions between both disciplines. Herpesviruses and Immunity brings together the contributions of world-class herpesvirus virologists and immunologists who summarize their work to recount some of the most exciting current developments in the field of herpes virology

Human retroviral infections : immunological and therapeutic control by Kenneth E Ugen( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together experts in the field of human retroviral pathogenesis, vaccine development, and the clinical treatment of AIDS. The problems facing the development of an effective vaccine against HIV-1 is the ability of the virus, particularly in the immunogenic envelope glycoprotein, to undergo amino acid hypervariability, thus making a vaccine against one envelope glycoprotein ineffective against other viruses due to their mutability
Opportunistic intracellular bacteria and immunity by Lois J Paradise( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opportunistic, intracellular bacterial infections are at the forefront of research because of the challenges they present to immunocompromised patients. In this volume, the pathogenesis and immune reaction of these intracellular infections is featured, as are the most typical problems related to antimicrobial chemotherapy, and current approaches to their solution. Individual chapters set the pace for research on pathogenic and immune reactions to such infections as, mycobacterium tuberculosis, legionella pneumophila, chlamydia trachomatis and brucella
Staphylococcus aureus infection and disease by Allen Honeyman( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Staphylococcus aureus is now acknowledged as being the most important bacterial pathogen of humans. It usually produces localized disease but can be rapidly invasive, spreading through the tissues, invading bone, and seeding the bloodstream to produce a fulminant picture of septic shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and rapid death. Moreover, most strains of staph infections are becoming resistant to most antibiotics, thus posing a significant problem for hospitals and health care facilities. This book, a volume in the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis series, presents chapters by the major researchers in the field
Chlamydia pneumoniae : infection and disease by Herman Friedman( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a bacteria that is most commonly known for causing colds and pneumonia. However, researchers have recently found a link between C. pneumoniae and atherosclerosis, a clogging of the arteries that causes heart attack and stroke. In addition, ongoing research is showing that certain strains may play a role in asthma, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, and arthritis. This volume, part of the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis series, is a complete portrait of C. pneumoniae and what is currently known about it
In vivo models of HIV disease and control by Herman Friedman( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of the similarities between HIV and immune deficiency infections in animals, scientists use animals as models to study pathogenesis and other aspects of HIV. Part of the "Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis" series, this volume reviews the immune deficiency virus in various hosts and also talks about the history and future of animal models
Acinetobacter biology and pathogenesis by Mauro Bendinelli( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is currently increasing interest concerning the biology and disease caused by Acinetobacter species. Such interest, however, developed relatively slowly because of the necessity to clarify the confusing taxonomy of these organisms. Much work was needed to identify various species as members of this genus, to recognize their epidemiologic profile, their pathogenic role and their increasing importance as multi-antibiotic resistant organisms. In recent years improvement of genetic approaches, recognition of plasmids, integrons and chromosomal sources of resistance mechanisms aroused interest on the role of Acinetobacters in disease by many microbiologists and clinicians, especially internists and infectious disease specialists. In this regard, physicians are frequently confronted with extremely difficult therapeutic approaches for treatment and prevention of severe nosocomial infections due to multi antibiotic resistant Acinetobacter. Moreover, recent observations of community acquired infections have been reported, especially in patients with various risk factors such as immuno-deficiencies. Also, it is now becoming evident that Acinetobacter infections occur frequently in violent situations such as earthquake or war zones. The mechanisms of Acinetobacter virulence are becoming increasingly clear, providing new insights into their pathogenic role in community acquired infections. It is apparent the time is appropriate for detailed review of the increasing knowledge concerning important new information, both clinical and therapeutic, especially information concerning virulence, resistance mechanisms and typing of Acinetobacter spp. Many new findings are accumulatingin almost an exponential manner since publication of previous books on this subject in 1991 and 1996
Legionella pneumophila : pathogenesis and immunity by Paul S Hoffman( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legionella pneumophila is an emerging human pathogen that resides in natural environments as a parasite of freshwater. There have been new developments in this field including the publication of three whole genome sequences, the discovery of a developmental cycle and novel cyst-like highly infectious form, and the bacteria have been used as a probe for macrophage cellular function to unravel fundamental new knowledge in the area of cellular biology. Legionella has also become a model system for the study of innate as well as adaptive immunity. Information on Legionella continues to increase in the U.S. and abroad. Columbia University has started the first Legionella Genome Project with a multi-million dollar grant from the NIH. In addition, The European Working Group for Legionella infections was formed in 1986. Members are scientists with an interest in improving knowledge and information on the clinical and environmental aspects of legionnaires' disease through developments in diagnosis, management and treatment of the disease. The volume brings together all of the lastest research on this pathogen, the interest in which is rapidly growing
