Antifungal Host Defenses

  • 1st Edition
  • May 1, 2025
  • Paschalis Vergidis
  • English
Antifungal Host Defenses: Translational Implications and Therapeutic Opportunities summarizes the current knowledge on interactions between host cells and human fungal pathogens and explains how certain immune defects lead to vulnerability to fungal infection. Chapters focus on immune response to such fungal infections as candidiasis, aspergillus, cryptococcosis, mucormycosis, pneumocystis.This title provides a basis for further study on antifungal immunity by enhancing understanding of antifungal immune responses. Further, this title offers new insights from the host immune response, improving understanding of disease pathogenesis and informing novel prophylactic and therapeutic approaches to fungal infections.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases

  • 1st Edition
  • April 1, 2025
  • Saeed Soleiman Meigooni
  • English
Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases summarizes practical content in infectious diseases using keys topics for better coding and grasping of material. The book's author uses his experience from over 15 years of teaching and working in infectious diseases in more than ten hospitals with thousands of patients as a backdrop. All of its contents use a clinical perspective for a wide range of audiences, such as medical students, general practitioners, nurses, and others. As infectious diseases are among the most common diseases, and a cause of death in many societies, they can create health challenges in developed and developing countries.Medical students have a limited time for infectious diseases rotation in their curriculum and may not learn many infectious diseases syndromes during their entire medical course. Also, due to the high volume of infectious disease subjects in textbooks which overlap symptoms and signs of many microorganisms, they may forget some of the materials. Therefore, access to a comprehensive compact book such as this one seems necessary for any medical staff.

Comorbidities in Inflammatory Arthritis

  • English
During the last years, there is an increase of field knowledge on a number of comorbidities and extra-articular manifestations (EAMs) associated with inflammatory arthritis. Many adults suffering from inflammatory arthritis also have other chronic conditions, so early detection is key to a patient’s quality of life and survivability outcomes. Comorbidities and Extra-articular Manifestations in Inflammatory Arthritis, the 18th volume in Elsevier’s Handbook for Systemic Autoimmune Diseases series, provides a comprehensive review of the latest research on various comorbidities and EAMs associated with inflammatory arthritis.  The book chapters review comorbidities and extra-articular manifestations in early and late disease stages, mechanisms involved in comorbidities development, as well as the impact of new treatment strategies specific to inflammatory arthritis and cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, metabolic bone, infection, neoplasia, respiratory, gastrointestinal, kidney, mental health disease, and neurological disease. This book serves as an ideal reference for researchers and clinicians focused on inflammatory arthritis and related diseases.

Glycobiology of the Immune System and Disease

  • 1st Edition
  • March 1, 2025
  • Shyamasree Ghosh
  • English
Glycobiology of the Immune System and Disease explores the integration of state-of-the-art glycobiology and immunology to raise awareness of the multifaceted roles of glycans and lectins in the immune system. Glycobiology is a rapidly growing field in biology, with relevance to biomedicine, biotechnology and basic research. Considering the central role that glycans play in immune interactions, glycoproteins and carbohydrates are becoming the targets of next-generation therapeutics, vaccines and diagnostics. Programmed remodeling of host glycans can modulate infection, autoimmunity, and cancer, while microbial glycoconjugates can serve as canonical innate receptor agonists that induce B cell and T cell activation.This important reference investigates microbial and mammalian glycans and their protein-binding partners (lectins) and shows the role they play in all innate and adaptive immune responses. With its comprehensive overview of the field, this is an important resource for academicians, graduate and post graduate students as well as professors and faculty in the field of research in glycobiology and immunology.

The Vaccine Book

  • Fabio Bagnoli + 2 more
  • English
The Vaccine Book: New Insights, Approaches and Technologies, Third Edition provides comprehensive information on the current and future world of vaccines. It reveals the scientific opportunities and potential impact of vaccines, including economic and ethical challenges, problems encountered when producing vaccines, how clinical vaccine trials are designed, and how to introduce vaccines into widespread use. Although vaccines are now available for many diseases, there are still challenges ahead for major diseases such as AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Edited by a new, highly experienced team of editors, the 3rd edition provides new approaches, design, and vaccine platform tools to develop vaccines quicker.This new edition is fully updated and designed for students, researchers, public health offcials, and all others interested in increasing their understanding of vaccines.

Metabolites as Signals in Immunity and Inflammation

  • 1st Edition
  • March 1, 2025
  • Zbigniew Zasłona + 2 more
  • English
Metabolites as Signals in Immunity and Inflammation describes the revolution in the definition of the word metabolism, highlighting changes in thinking about the whole field of immunology. These changes occur thanks to breakthrough experiments in basic research, and with the help of new technologies that allow for the testing of immunology hypotheses. In recent years, a substantial number of findings have been made around immunometabolism. What is emerging is a complex interplay between metabolic reprogramming and immunity, which is providing an extra dimension to our understanding of the immune system in health and disease.

Vaccinology and Immunizations

  • 1st Edition

  • Jahangir Moini + 2 more
  • English
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.
