Computational Immunology: Basics

The immune system is highly complex system with large number of macromolecules, signaling pathways, protein-protein interactions, and gene expressions. Studies from genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics are generating huge high throughput data that needs to be analyzed for understanding the Immune system in Health and Disease. Computational approaches arehelping in understanding the study of complex biology of immunology and thereby enabling design of therapeutic strategies in diseases like infectious diseases, immunodeficiency, allergic, hypersensitive, autoimmune disorders and diseases like Cancer, HIV etc.
Computational Immunology: Basics highlights the basics of the immune system and function in health and disease.
This book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including
Overview of Immunology and computational Immunology
Immune organs and cells, antigen, antibody, B, cell, T cell
Antigen Processing and presentation
Diseases due to abnormalities of the immune system
Cancer Biology

Hematology and Immunology: Quality in Laboratory Diagnosis

“This book is well written, concise, and easy to read and understand. It serves as a very handy and useful resource for busy laboratorians, who routinely encounter the situations detailed therein. It is also helpful for students, who need to learn how to recognize and avoid such situations, by providing expert guidance and examples of ways to keep these types of errors from potentially causing harm to patients.”–Cynthia S. Johns, Laboratory Corporation of America, Lab Medicine

The Diagnostic Standards of Care series presents common errors associated with diagnoses in clinical pathology, using case examples to illustrate effective analysis based on current evidence and standards. Each volume demonstrates the use of quality assurance and the role of the pathologist in ensuring quality and patient safety.

Hematology and Immunology focuses on core issues in achieving quality in all areas of hematopathology and immunology, with an emphasis on identifying established, evidence-based standards. It addresses potential problems and sources of error in testing procedures, how to anticipate and avoid such problems, and how to manage them if they occur. Discussions are problem-based and address common situations and issues faced by clinical pathologists or members of a laboratory team. Using actual case studies, the book provides plentiful examples of errors, along with discussions on how to deal with them effectively.

Hematology and Immunology Features

– Key issues in achieving quality in all areas of hematology and immunology

– Numerous case examples offering real-world illustrations of how problems occur and how to avoid them

– An emphasis on identifying established, evidence-based standards in hematology and immunology

Immunology of Behcet’s Disease

Behçet’s Disease (BD) is one of the most-studied systemic disorders characterized by an occlusive vasculopathy of multiple organs. The etiology and pathogenesis of BD are still unclear, but there is evidence for genetic, immunologic and infectious factors in the onset and throughout the course of the disease. Immunology of Behçet’s Disease highlights various aspects of BD. After an epidemiological overview, the clinical presentation of ocular and non-ocular symptoms of BD are summarized. The immunopathological changes reflect a chronic vasculitis of arterioles, venules and capillaries. The role of T-cells, but also of NK-T-cells, secreted cytokines and neutrophils is covered. For years microorganisms have been under investigation as initiating BD and, in particular, immune reactions against various microbial heat shock proteins could be an important etiological factor. It has been shown that the pathogenic gene involved in the development of BD is pinpointed to HLA-B51. Finally, the treatment of BD is discussed in detail, including new options like anti-TNF-alpha-antibodies and interferon-alpha. Immunology of Behçet’s Disease summarizes our knowledge regarding the most important factors that induce or trigger BD and will stimulate research in the field and help to initiate new ideas.

The Immune System Recovery Plan: A Doctor’s 4-Step Program to Treat Autoimmune Disease

The bestselling book with 100,000 copies in print from one of the most sought-after experts in the field of functional medicine, Dr. Susan Blum, author of Healing Arthritis, shares the four-step program she used to treat her own serious autoimmune condition and help countless patients reverse their symptoms, heal their immune systems, and prevent future illness.

DR. BLUM ASKS:

• Are you constantly exhausted?

• Do you frequently feel sick?

• Are you hot when others are cold, or cold when everyone else is warm?

• Do you have trouble thinking clearly, aka “brain fog”?

• Do you often feel irritable?

• Are you experiencing hair loss, dry skin, or unexplained weight fluctuation?

• Do your joints ache or swell but you don’t know why?

• Do you have an overall sense of not feeling your best, but it has been going on so long it’s actually normal to you?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have an autoimmune disease, and this book is the “medicine” you need. Among the most prevalent forms of chronic illness in this country, autoimmune disease affects nearly 23.5 million Americans. This epidemic—a result of the toxins in our diet; exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, and antibiotics; and unprecedented stress levels—has caused millions to suffer from autoimmune conditions such as Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, lupus, and more.

DR. BLUM’S INNOVATIVE METHOD FOCUSES ON:

• Using food as medicine

• Understanding the stress connection

• Healing your gut and digestive system

• Optimizing liver function

Each of these sections includes an interactive workbook to help you determine and create your own personal treatment program. Also included are recipes for simple, easy-to-prepare dishes to jump-start the healing process.

The Immune System Recovery Plan is a revolutionary way for people to balance their immune systems, transform their health, and live fuller, happier lives.
