Vaccinology and Immunizations is a thorough resource on the immune system, the history of vaccines, vaccine preparation, the process of vaccine approval, and the prevention and eradication of diseases. It also includes chapters on vaccine safety and errors, and complete information on pediatric and adult immunizations. There is also discussion on elderly immunology and immunization for people who are seeking to travel abroad, as well as timely information about COVID-19.Its focus on the innate and adaptive defense systems of the body will ensure understanding of human immunity and how immunizations are effective. There is a variety of available titles related to vaccinology and immunizations, but many are now outdated. Vaccinology and Immunizations provides a new, updated resource that is widely needed, and will be welcomed by students of undergraduate, graduate and master level in vaccinology or immunology, and would also be of interest to nurses, researchers, and pharmacists.

Cytokine Response Against Major Human Viral Infections provides coverage on the role and mode of possible impact of cytokines on disease pathogenesis and host immune response. Cytokines, as a part of innate immunity, favor the development of antiviral and TH 1-type immune responses. Cytokines also affect the adaptive immune response and disease manifestation. This book gives a comprehensive introduction to clinical manifestations of viral and infectious diseases, explains the role cytokines in DNA virus infections, RNA virus infections, and in reverse transcribing virus infections, and gives insights into recent advances and strategies in diagnostic tools and therapeutic and prophylactic measures.This book is a milestone to understanding the immunological response against various viral infections for both researchers in immunology and virology, as well as for those in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.

Immunotoxicogenomics: A Multidisciplinary Approach in Systems Toxicology covers the major mechanisms and effects of toxic substances on the immune system, and on the regulation of gene expression. This includes the aims, opportunities, clinical applications, recent developments, and emerging and future trends. The book begins with a discussion of the systemic approach to toxicants, but also looks at current genomic tools used to assess immunotoxicity and systems biology methods used in immuno-toxicogenomics. Other topics include genomic expression profiling, gene expression as a tool to understand and predict immunotoxicity, immunotox-icogenomics as a screening tool, and the assessment and analysis of Immunotoxicogenomics data.This book provides a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach for researchers in the fields of toxicology, genetics, immunology, and others engaged in the study on the effects of toxic substances on immune responses.

Role of Medicinal Plants in Autoimmune Diseases: Concepts, Perspectives, and Utilization provides comprehensive knowledge of autoimmune diseases and the role of various medicinal plant products in their treatment. The book discusses the immune system as a group of complex biological structures and processes in an organism which gives protection against a wide range of pathogenic organisms while simultaneously distinguishing these pathogens from the organism’s own healthy cells and tissues, thus maintaining homeostasis in the body.It has been an age-old practice to use extracts and other parts of various plants in treating many diseases. Several plants contain various pharmacologically active substances which can be used to treat different diseases. Among these medicinal plants, many have shown good immunomodulatory properties and could act as natural immunosuppressant agents in treating autoimmune disorders.

Microbes, Microbial Metabolism and Mucosal Immunity: An Overview presents a concise and well-vetted treatise on the study of microbiome and microbial metabolites. This volume is up-to-date with the most recent developments from the last decade. It encompasses the interaction of immunity and microbes — and their metabolites — from different mucosal organs including eye, skin, gastrointestinal system, lung, intestine, and cervix. Along with the efficiency of the immune system in inhibiting the growth and proliferation of microbes, the volume discusses how the mediators of the immune system can be targeted to develop therapies.This book presents the latest methods, gives broad and systematic coverage of most mucosal systems and diseases, and takes a fresh perspective that looks at the functional aspects of change in the microbiome. The study of microbiome and microbial metabolites and their roles in host mucosal immunology is a rapidly developing area of research. One major way in which the microbiome influences the host is through altered metabolism. Metabolites, readily available to the host, engender significant consequences. Microbial metabolites have been shown to impact the disease processes in both proximal and distal organs, including the brain in several neurocognitive disorders.
