Allergy and Tissue Metabolism covers some of the more important features of the state of knowledge in the relevant areas of allergy and tissue metabolism. This book is composed of nine chapters, and starts with a survey of the link between immune system and allergic diseases. The subsequent chapters deal with the evaluation of anaphylactic shock mechanisms using some animal models and the relationship between eosinophils and anaphylaxis. These topics are followed by discussions on the role of histamine, bradykinin, and serotonin in allergy. A chapter examines the slow reacting substance of anaphylaxis. The final chapters consider the therapeutic management of allergic diseases. This book is of value to allergists, allergologists, immunologists, and researchers and workers in the allied fields.
