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.

Regulatory T Cells and Autoimmune Diseases addresses recent findings concerning the role of Tregs in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases as well as their therapeutic applications. In particular, this book deals with various Treg-based mechanisms that can lead to autoimmune disease and covers different aspects linking Tregs with autoimmune mechanisms involved in disease development by discussing animal models and human studies.This book specifically focuses on Treg-based therapeutics and their targets to manage all known autoimmune rheumatic, central nervous system, bowel, liver, thyroid, kidney, myopathic, skin, blood and blood vessel, and eye diseases and aims to provide a must-have reference for designing therapeutic strategies to treat these autoimmune diseases. Additionally, this book covers vaccine-induced effects on the functioning of Tregs and development of CAR Treg therapy for autoimmune diseases and concludes with current challenges and future prospects of Treg-based therapeutics. This book is carefully designed to meet the requirements of both basic and advanced researchers in the area and provide new dimensions and insight into regulatory T cells’ role in autoimmune disease pathogenesis and therapy.

In 2020 we lost Noel Rose, co-editor of the classic Infection and Autoimmunity. To honor and respect his work, a group of experts in the field have taken the initiative to make this book perpetual. The third edition of Infection and Autoimmunity updates all the recent and leading papers on infection and autoimmunity, in addition to a dedicated section on to the correlation between SARS-CoV-2 infection and autoimmunity. From the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous papers have been published, including studies conducted by the editors and authors of the book, on COVID-19 and autoimmunity, and therefore this knowledge has been incorporated into this new edition. The addition and extended coverage on SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 and autoimmunity are pivotal for the third edition of the book due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Medical students and practitioners, as well as academic staff in medical schools globally, are enthusiastic in searching for better understanding of the correlation between infection and autoimmunity in general, and the long-term effects of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 on the immunce system in particular, especially in terms of autoimmunity related to the virus.
