This volume highlights the latest reviews of mechanisms and actions of the immune system and the host response to infection and inflammation.
@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Covers cytokine functioning as influenced by the Janus protein tyrosine kinase family
- Explores immunodeficiencies, including: @subbul:* Immunoglobulin deficiencies and B cells development
- Glycosyl Phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor and Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH)
- Investigates the links molecular pathology established between deficiencies in GPI-anchor synthesis and PNH
- Includes the use of Multiple Antigen Peptides (MAPs) to induce protective immune response
- Offers a timely update on Eosinophils' role in disease
- Covers histology of Germinal center reaction of a spleen twelve days after primary immunization
- Includes new research on cytotoxic T-lymphocytes
- Presents the multiple roles of Nitric oxide (NO) in the inflammatory response
