The autoimmune diseases by Ian R Mackay( )

60 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in English and held by 2,803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Autoimmune Diseases comprehensively describes the clinical expressions of all known autoimmune diseases, as well as the experimental bases of autoimmunity and failure of tolerance. The scientific chapters include mechanisms of natural tolerance, the genetic basis of autoimmunity, the significance of apoptosis, the influence of cytokines, environmental influences, and experimental models. The clinical chapters cover autoimmune endocrine deficiencies, insulin-dependent diabetes, rheumatic disorders, neurological diseases, and diseases of the blood, skin, eye, kidney, and liver."--BOOK JACKET
Intolerant bodies : a short history of autoimmunity by Warwick Anderson( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Autoimmune diseases are as unpredictable in their course as they are paradoxical in their cause. They produce persistent suffering as they follow a drawn-out, often lifelong, pattern of remission and recurrence. Multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and type I diabetes -- the diseases considered in this book -- are but four examples of the many conditions that can develop when the body turns on itself. Connecting laboratory research, clinical medicine, social theory, and lived experience, the authors reveal how doctors and patients have come to terms with this new concept of pathogenesis, one that was accepted only in the 1950s

The Autoimmune diseases II by Ian R Mackay( Book )

12 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with autoimmune disease in humans (as opposed to autoimmunity itself). It discusses the biological basis of disease at the molecular, genetic, cellular, and epidemiologic levels. It also describes the clinical problems of diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. The intended audience includes physicians of all specialties in practice, physicians in training such as house staff and fellows, and medical students. It will also be valuable for basic scientists and graduate students interested in the solution of important clinical problems. The book concentrates on topics that have grown or changed dramatically since publication of The Autoimmune Diseases
The human thymus by Gideon Goldstein( Book )

14 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Human Thymus presents the immunological aspect of the thymus. It discusses the lymphopoietic and immunological functions of the human thymus. It addresses the physiological function of thymus that regulates neuromuscular transmission by the secretion of thymin. Some of the topics covered in the book are the origin of thymic lymphocytes; development of Hassall's corpuscles; humoral immune responses; neonatal thymectomy and wasting disease; mode of action of thymin at the neuromyal synapse; experimental autoimmune thymitis; and neuromuscular block associated with experimental autoimmune

Intolerant bodies : a short history of autoimmune disease by Warwick Anderson( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Autoimmune diseases, which affect 5 to 10 percent of the population, are as unpredictable in their course as they are paradoxical in their cause. They produce persistent suffering as they follow a drawn-out, often lifelong, pattern of remission and recurrence. Multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and type 1 diabetes - the diseases considered in this book - are but a handful of the conditions that can develop when the immune system goes awry. Intolerant Bodies is a unique collaboration between Ian Mackay, one of the prominent founders of clinical immunology, and Warwick Anderson, a leading historian of twentieth-century biomedical science. The authors narrate the changing scientific understanding of the cause of autoimmunity and explore the significance of having a disease in which one's body turns on itself. The book unfolds as a biography of a relatively new concept of pathogenesis, one that was accepted only in the 1950s. In their description of the onset, symptoms, and course of autoimmune diseases, Anderson and Mackay quote from the writings of Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Joseph Heller, Flannery O'Connor, and other famous people who commented on or grappled with autoimmune disease. The authors also assess the work of the dedicated researchers and physicians who have struggled to understand the mysteries of autoimmunity. Connecting laboratory research, clinical medicine, social theory, and lived experience, Intolerant Bodies reveals how doctors and patients have come to terms, often reluctantly, with this novel and puzzling mechanism of disease causation
