Apoptotic and Non-apoptotic Cell Death (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)


This volume focuses on apoptotic and non-apoptotic programmed cell death, including necroptosis, pyroptosis, and ferroptosis, and presents recent findings in the field. It discusses the crucial role that apoptotic and non-apoptotic cell death play in various pathological conditions, such as skin diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, and virus infections. Further, it highlights the mechanisms underlying the recognition and clearance of dead cells, and the subsequent biological responses triggered by phagocytosed macrophages and factors released from dying cells. Offering insights into cell death, it is a valuable resource for researchers and clinicians developing novel strategies to treat various diseases that are closely associated with cell death.

Next Generation Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADCs) and Immunotoxins (Milestones in Drug Therapy)


This book describes the newest developments in antibody drug conjugates and immunotoxins, paving their way to clinical application. Lessons learned from the current state of the art are used to further improve our understanding of their mechanisms of action and off target activities.

The book introduces scientists to all of the prerequisites that must be properly addressed, including identification of the right target, specific traits of target binding antibodies, proper selection of the toxic payload, internalization induced by binding, and next generation conjugation and linker technologies. These knowledge-based, revolutionary new drug principles will form the cornerstone of the future standard of care and will lead to major advances in application, as well as improved quality of life and patient survival rates. This book will be of interest to biotech companies and researchers working in the fields of immunology, pharmacology, and oncology.

RUNX Proteins in Development and Cancer (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)


This volume provides the reader with an overview of the diverse functions of the RUNX family of genes. As highlighted in the introduction and several of the 29 chapters, humans and other mammals have three RUNX genes that are known to play specific roles in blood, bone and neuronal development. However, their evolutionary history has recently been traced back to unicellular organisms and their involvement in many well-known signaling pathways (Wnt, TGFb, Notch, Hippo) is indicative of a more general function in cell biology. Their documented roles in cell fate decisions include control of proliferation, differentiation, survival, senescence and autophagy.

The pleiotropic effects of RUNX in development are mirrored in cancer, where RUNX genes can function as oncogenes that collaborate strongly with Myc family oncogenes or as tumour suppressor genes. In the latter role, they display hallmarks of both ‘gatekeepers’ that modulate p53 responses and ‘caretakers’ that protect the genome from DNA damage. Several chapters focus on the importance of these genes in leukemia research, where RUNX1 and CBFB are frequently affected by chromosomal translocations that generate fusion oncoproteins, while recent studies suggest wider roles for RUNX modulation in solid cancers. Moreover, RUNX genes are intimately involved in the development and regulation of the immune system, while emerging evidence suggests a role in innate immunity to infectious agents, including HIV. 

At the biochemical level, the RUNX family can serve as activators or repressors of transcription and as stable mediators of epigenetic memory through mitosis. Not surprisingly, RUNX activity is controlled at multiple levels, this includes miRNAs and a plethora of post-translational modifications. Several chapters highlight the interplay between the three mammalian RUNX genes, where cross-talk and partial functional redundancies are evident. Finally, structural analysis of the RUNX/CBFB interaction has led to the development of small molecule inhibitors that provide exciting new tools to decipher the roles of RUNX in development and as targets for therapy.

This volume provides a compendium and reference source that will be of broad interest to cancer researchers, developmental biologists and immunologists.

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis: From Epidemiology and Immunobiology to a Rational Diagnostic and Therapeutic Approach


This new edition is a unique combined resource for physicians and scientists addressing the needs of both groups. In addition to stimulating exchange and collaboration and shortening the path between discovery and application of new knowledge, the book helps clinicians understand new therapeutic concepts from their origins. The volume serves as a comprehensive guide to the current diagnostic modalities, including enhanced imaging techniques such as MRI and CT enterography, virtual colonoscopy, ultrasound, and endomicroscopy, as well as conventional and complex immunomodulatory principles. The latest edition also includes revised chapters from the previous edition, as well as new chapters reflecting current developments in the field.

Written by experts in their field, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis: From Epidemiology and Immunobiology to a Rational Diagnostic and Therapeutic Approach, Second Edition is of great value to gastroenterologists, surgeons, internists, pediatricians and gynecologists trainees, as well as all those involved in Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and related autoimmune disorders.

Immunotherapy (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)


In the last decade, immunotherapy has revolutionized the practice of medicine in the field of oncology. This book, Immunotherapy, highlights the immunotherapeutic approaches currently in use and strategies to overcome the associated challenges. As comprehensive knowledge of basic immunology in the context of tumor biology is required to move further along the line of development in translational science, this book provides an overview of the cellular components of the immune system that interact with each other to provide a successful immune response.

Immunotherapy offers promising antitumor activity across multiple cancer types as it does not attack the tumor but primarily revitalizes a suppressed immune system. It is beyond the scope of this book to discuss the immunotherapeutic approaches across the tumor board. However, the book features the role of immune-oncology in acute myeloid leukemia, non-small cell lung cancer, and sarcomas to showcase the recent advances in the management of cancer broadly classified as hematological malignancies, solid tumors, and tumors arising in the connective tissue. The book also discusses alternative formulations and combinatorial approaches to enhance the therapeutic index of these agents.

As immunotherapeutic agents differ significantly from chemotherapeutic agents in response patterns and toxicity profiles, evaluating their safety and efficacy in clinical trials remains a challenge. In this book, we discuss the use of a variety of traditional and new immunotherapy criteria to evaluate response, their inadequacies, and clinical implications. The book also outlines how recent advances in medical imaging technology have the potential to provide high-dimensional data to improve decision support and individualize treatment selection and monitoring. Importantly, the book attempts to increase the awareness to immune related adverse events and the need for aggressive and judicious management of toxicities to improve treatment outcomes in patients on immunotherapy

In short, this book provides a broad understanding of immunotherapy and ways to leverage the immune system to make inroads in the fight against cancer.
