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.

Proteomics, Multi-Omics and Systems Biology in Optic Nerve Regeneration is a comprehensive reference that covers all vistas of standardization of axon regeneration, as well as all multi-omics and system level data and integration tools. By adopting a translational approach, the book bridges current research in the field to clinical applications, and readers can expect to learn standardization approaches for axon regeneration, multi-omics datasets, different databases, search engines, multiple dataset integrative tools, pathway convergence approaches and tools, outcome and outcome measures that unify bench research with clinical outcome.The axon regeneration from existing neurons in central nervous system (CNS) have become a potential possibility in the last decade. The potential possibility of long-distance axon growth has opened the possibility of re-connectivity of axons of retinal ganglion cell neurons within the lateral geniculate nucleus in the brain. The long-distance axon regeneration and re-connectivity is a promise to restore lost vision in the optic nerve. Further, long-distance regeneration and re-innervation is equally helpful for other fields such as spinal cord injuries.
