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.

Neglected Zoonoses and Antimicrobial Resistance: Impact on One Health and Sustainable Development Goals provides a thorough examination of how neglected zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance together hinder the achievement of sustainable development goals declared by the United Nations in the pursuit of a disease-free world. Neglected zoonotic diseases, as defined by the World Health Organization, are diseases likely to impact the livelihoods of livestock keepers and those living in periurban communities in developing countries. This book examines how such zoonoses affect the health of vulnerable farming populations and reduce the production capacity of their livestock.Written by internationally recognized experts in the field of livestock and poultry zoonoses, this book provides the reader with a comprehensive description of modern sustainable development goals and defines neglected zoonotic diseases and their impacts on human physical, mental, social, and economic health. Subsequent chapters systematically describe the epidemiology, hosts and transmission, disease process, economic significance, and prevention and treatment protocols of key neglected zoonotic diseases, including echinococcosis, leishmaniasis, zoonotic tuberculosis, anthrax, brucellosis, leptospirosis, borreliosis, rickettsioses, and rabies. The book concludes with an assessment of the obstacles to achieving Sustainable Development Goals and possible mitigation strategies for veterinary researchers and policymakers alike.

Body-on-a-chip (BOC) systems consists of multiple microscale models of different human organ (physiologically scaled to one another) that are physically connected located on a synthetic “chip” format and connected to each other using a microfluidic system, thus emulating the circulatory system within the body. Simpler versions of these systems, known as Organ-on-a-chip (OOC) consists of one organ per chip and have been an emerging area of interest since the past 13-15 years as in vitro biomimetic systems for predicting physiological response to drugs and chemicals. Although animal models have been the gold standards for preclinical drug testing, animal models often do not predict human response effectively; thus, increasing the demand for more advanced in vitro human tissue/ organ model platforms.Since, BOC systems can recapitulate native tissue/ organ architecture, diffusion kinetics of drugs physiological flow conditions etc., similar to what would happen in the body, they are particularly powerful in predicting human efficacy prior to clinical testing of a drug, determining potential toxicity, or in clinical studies to test underlying mechanisms or action or adverse effects. With recent advancements in high-throughput analysis systems and artificial intelligence, it has also become possible to screen several drugs at a time, thus significantly speeding up discovery, development and testing of pharmacologically useful compounds and reducing costs. Now BOC systems are also finding applications in evaluating the safety of chemicals, cosmetics, food ingredients, and also in life science research.Body-on-a-chip: Essentials and Applications provides the reader high quality information, in a single resource, necessary to explore the use of BOC systems from design and development to testing and personalized medicine, to medical research and diagnostics.
