Handbook of Food Allergen Detection and Control, Second Edition continues to be an essential resource of scientific and technical information in the food and analytical communities. This book provides information on current and emerging technologies for detecting and reducing allergens to improve allergen control overall. Written by experts in the field, it offers a wide scientific perspective on allergens and includes hot topics such as food allergen labeling and consumer perspectives on food allergen labels. Chapters are fully revised to include the latest information in the industry, including practical applications of new methods and control strategies. The book is useful for anyone in the food supply chain.The book reviews current and emerging technologies for detecting and reducing allergens, as well as issues such as traceability, regulation, and consumer attitudes. Following an introductory chapter by a distinguished expert, Part One covers allergen management throughout the food chain. Part Two details current and emerging methods of allergen detection in food, with Part Three covering methods for reducing and eliminating allergens in food. Finally, Part Four focuses on the control and detection of individual food allergens and the risks each one presents in food manufacturing.

Clinical Reproductive Immunology provides an up-to-date overview of clinical research in the field of reproductive immunology and pregnancy. With a strong focus on the use of clinical diagnostics to identify immune-related etiologies in pregnancy complications and/or failure, the book also addresses a significant informational gap by providing an overview of clinical data followed by a diagnostic algorithm at the end of each chapter. Every chapter addresses a significant information gap by providing a diagnostic algorithm that will serve to translate the findings from clinical research into a concise, stepwise guide developed with the clinical reproductive specialist in mind.This title builds nicely on the foundational Reproductive Immunology text and serves as a more concise diagnostic reference tool, addressing clinical utility and the significance of related research when developing background sections for manuscripts/literature reviews or for significant sections on grant proposals.

Immunological Aspects of Preterm Birth: Phenotypes of Preterm Birth, Immune Mechanisms, and Pathway Forward bridges reproductive immunology of preterm birth to subtypes, phenotypes, and bedside prevention and treatment. The book reviews the role of the different immune mechanisms during pregnancy that lead to preterm birth, along with the fetal programming effects that are connected to maternal immune activation. In addition, it discusses immune cells and their products and cytokines and chemokines as central for the success of the pregnancy.While our knowledge on the role of immune cells and the inflammatory process in preterm birth has grown exponentially in the last 10 years, connecting basic science to clinical science and the development of new therapeutics has not progressed as rapidly. This book assists researchers in understanding the basic immunologic mechanisms and inflammatory processes associated with preterm birth and fills an urgent need for the development of therapeutics in this space.

Cytokine Response Against Major Human Viral Infections provides in-depth coverage of the immunological response against human viral infections and the role and impact of cytokines on disease pathogenesis and host immune response.Cytokines, as a part of innate immunity, initiate the development of antiviral and TH 1-type immune responses. Cytokines also affect the adaptive immune response and disease manifestation. In five sections, this book gives a comprehensive introduction to the clinical manifestations of viral and infectious diseases; details the role of cytokines in DNA virus infections, RNA virus infections, and reverse transcribing virus infections; and gives insights into the recent advances and strategies in diagnostic tools and therapeutic and prophylactic measures.Cytokine Response Against Major Human Viral Infections is valuable resource for both researchers in immunology and virology, as well as for those in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, engaged in the study of cytokines and their immunological response against human viral infections.

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.
