Viruses, plagues, and history by Michael B. A Oldstone( )

47 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 4,535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of viruses and the story of humanity have been intertwined since the dawn of history. The first small cities formed not only the cradle of civilization but the spawning ground for the earliest viral epidemics, the first opportunity for viruses to find a home in the human herd. This is a story of fear and ignorance, as everything from demons and the wrath of the gods to minority groups has been blamed for epidemics from smallpox to yellow fever to AIDS. It is a story of grief and heartbreak, as hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions, are wiped out in a single year
Molecular mimicry : infection inducing autoimmune disease by Michael B. A Oldstone( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Molecular mimicry as a pathogenic mechanism for understanding and developing insights into therapies for autoimmune disease was first presented in the early 1980s. By the end of the 1980s, sufficient reports occurred to publish a Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology volume (vol. 145, 1989) focusing on the developing evidence for or against molecular mimicry as a cause of autoimmunity. In the ensuing years a plethora of reports using experimental models and studying human diseases have surfaced to firmly establish the concept and its potential role in several autoimmune disorders. This current volume selects several of these examples of molecular mimicry from recognized experts, who present their original findings. In addition, chapters on the evolution of the concept, its strengths and weaknesses are included in this volume."--Jacket

Measles : pathogenesis and control by Diane E Griffin( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Measles virus, one of the most contagious of all human viruses, has been largely contained by the development and use of a vaccine that was introduced 50 years ago. These two volumes were timed to honor the introduction of the vaccine and to record the enormous advancements made in understanding the molecular and cell biology, pathogenesis, and control of this infectious disease. Where vaccine has been effectively delivered, endemic measles virus transmission has been eliminated. However, difficulties in vaccine delivery, lack of health care support and objection to vaccination in some communities continue to result in nearly 40 million cases and over 300,000 deaths per year from measles

Sphingosine-1-phosphate signaling in immunology and infectious diseases by Michael B. A Oldstone( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume focuses on the role of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) and its analogs in the induced sequestration of lymphocytes in secondary lymphoid organs or in the microenvironment of tissues involved in infection or autoimmune disease. Initial chapters define the pathways to understand S1P signaling. They cover the organization of signaling systems, the structural biology of the S1P1 receptor, and the chemical and genetic tools that are available and useful to explore this area of research and therapeutics. The later chapters highlight S1P and endothelial integrity, lymphocyte migration in the spleen, and S1P agonist in controlling immunopathologic manifestations of acute respiratory influenza virus infection (in the lung), and its accompanying cytokine storm as well as immunopathologic disease of the central nervous system, including the beginning of treatments in multiple sclerosis. One chapter reveals the possible involvement of other lipid molecules, their use for better understanding lipid signaling, and their potential in the modulation of immune responses

Microbe hunters, then and now by N. J Dimmock( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and held by 302 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
Arenaviruses by Michael B. A Oldstone( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the subject of arenaviruses was visited by Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology 14 years ago, enormous advances have been made in this area. The receptor for several arenaviruses, alpha-dystroglycan, was identified, the replication strategy of these viruses was decoded, and application of a reverse genetics system for studying viral gene function and viral biology is well underway. In addition to reviewing these advances, Volume I includes discussion of arenaviral molecular phylogeny, reservoirs in rodents and clinical diseases caused by both new world and old world arenaviruses
Retrovirus infections of the nervous system : current and future perspectives by Michael B. A Oldstone( Book )

12 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 277 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
HIV and dementia : proceedings of the NIMH-sponsored conference "Pathogenesis of HIV infection of the brain: impact on function and behavior" by Michael B. A Oldstone( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal objective of the book is to inform scientists and educated lay audience of now well-documented involvement of the nervous system in AIDS and the tremendous opportunities for basic neuroscience research in this evolving area. Recent evidence indicates that HIV infection results in the perturbation of the blood-brain barrier potentially facilitating the entry of HIV into the brain parenchyma and directly causing neuronal dysfunction and ultimate death. In addition, recently established models of AIDS in monkeys, cats, and mice faithfully recapitulate aspects of neuropathophysiology of HIV infection in humans thereby providing new opportunities for research in NeuroAIDS

The genetic programs played out in these cells and the newer methods of hybridization at the electron microscopic level provide valuable insight into the complexities of virus-host interaction
Transgenic models of human viral and immunological disease by Francis V Chisari( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most diseases are multifactoral. Transgenic technology permits gene(s) of interest to be expressed in a small manipulatable laboratory animal model. By this process, murine models of human infections can be developed and studied; effects of cytokines in vivo, focally expressed in unique cells can be established and manipulated, and a variety of autoimmune disorders, mimicking human disease can be constructed. In this volume, these approaches for study of human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis virus, viruses causing tumors and chronic degenerative disorders are described. Also included are chapters of transgenic models of autoimmune disorders like diabetes, systemic lupus and ankylosing spondylitis
