Immune

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95845893&cjsku=95845893...
The human body is like an exceedingly well-fortified castle, defended by billions of soldiers some live for less than a day, others remember battles for decades, but all are essential in protecting us from disease. This hidden army is our immune system, and without it we could not survive the eternal war between our microscopic enemies and ourselves. Immune explores the incredible arsenal that lives within us how it knows what to attack and what to defend, and how it kills everything from the common cold virus to plague bacteria. We see what happens when the immune system turns on us, and how life is impossible without its protection. We learn how diseases try to evade the immune system and exploit its vulnerabilities, and we discover how scientists are designing new drugs to harness the power of the system to fight disease. Do transplants ever reject their new bodies? What is pus? How can your body make more antibodies than there are stars in our galaxy? Why is cancer so hard for our immune system to fight? Why do flu outbreaks cause a spike in sleep disorders? Can we smell someone else's immune system, and does that help us subconsciously decide who we fall in love with? In this book, Catherine Carver answers all of these compelling questions, and many more besides. Drawing on everything from ancient Egyptian medical texts to cutting-edge medical science, Immune will take you on an adventure packed with weird and wonderful revelations about your own internal defensive system.

Immune System

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1894123&cjsku=1894123...
Immune System - General Practice: The Integrative Approach Series . The human immune system is extremely complex, with intricate multidirectional connections between our gastrointestinal, psychological, endocrinological and other systems, and communication via various neuro transmitters, cytokines and other immune system messengers. This chapter presents a simplified view of the principles of immunology, with specific focus on some of the most recently researched complementary therapies known to improve immune system health. A comprehensive listing of further resources and references is listed at the end of the chapter.

Intestinal Immune System

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=881319&cjsku=881319...
In the intestine, a unique immunological system that is different from the systemic immune system exists to provide adaptive immunity in response to luminal bacteria and dietary antigens. There are many lymphoid cell aggregates called gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) including Peyer's patches (PPs), which function as important induction sites for the mucosal immune response. M-cells are present in the epithelium of PPs, having a specialized structure for uptake of macromolecules such as bacteria. In addition to GALT, there are abundant lymphoid cells in the intestinal lamina propria, where they mainly play a role as immune effector cells. A strong innate immune system that mainly consists of dendritic cells, macrophages, and T lymphocytes also exists in the intestinal mucosa to assist the barrier function of intestinal epithelial cells.The intestinal mucosa thus shows a unique morphological structure with many immune cells being present under physiological conditions. This condition is known as "controlled inflammation." These abundant immune cells also have characteristic functions: they are "negatively regulated" and have been educated not to overreact unnecessarily to the intestinal luminal milieu. Main players that control inflammation of the intestinal mucosa include regulatory cytokines and regulatory T cells which induce oral tolerance to intestinal bacteria and food antigens, and the secretory IgA system. The maintenance of unique immunological activity in the intestine is also related to an organized, orchestrated lymphocyte migratory mechanism called the "common mucosal immune system."These negative regulatory mechanisms of the intestinal immune system are disturbed in certain disease conditions, causing the immunocompetent cells to respond to food components and commensal bacteria by becoming activated and to overproduce inflammatory cytokines and chemokines. These disease conditions include food allergies, such as celiac disease, and the inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, although their exact etiological mechanisms remain to be revealed.Table of Contents: Introduction / GALT: Its Structure and Formation / Intestinal Epithelial Cells and Their Immune Function / Innate Immunity in the Intestinal Mucosa / Intraepithelial Lymphocytes (IELs) / Lymphoid Cell Trafficking in Intestinal Immunology / Site of Induction of Mucosal Immunity and Antigen Presentation by Dendritic Cells / Production of Secretory IgA (SIgA) / Effector Site of Acquired Immunity and T Helper Cell Subpopulation / Immune Regulatory System and Oral Tolerance / Food Allergy and Celiac Disease / Inflammatory Bowel Diseases / Enteric Infection with Pathogenic Microbes and Mucosal Immunity / References

The Immune System

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1306725&cjsku=1306725...
The cells of the immune system generate a large variety of binding sites which differ in their binding specificities and can therefore react specifically with a large variety of ligands. These binding sites are part of receptor molecules, enabling the system to react to the universe of antigens. The classical antigen receptor is the antibody molecule, and accord ingly the first session of this colloquium deals with a classical sub ject, namely antibody structure. Dramatic recent advances in this field make it possible to interrelate primary and three-dimensional struc ture both to each other and to function, i.e. the binding of antigen and possible reactions occurring in the antibody molecule upon antigen binding. The latter point is of particular interest since it may be relevant not only for effector functions of antibodies such as the binding of complement, but also for the triggering of a lymphocyte through its antibody receptor for antigen.

The Immune System

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95915809&fc=GB&cjsku=95915809...
The immune system is central to human health and the focus of much medical research. Growing understanding of the immune system, and especially the creation of immune memory (long lasting protection), which can be harnessed in the design of vaccines, have been major breakthroughs in medicine.In this Very Short Introduction, Paul Klenerman describes the immune system, and how it works in health and disease. In particular he focuses on the human immune system, considering how it evolved, the basic rules that govern its behaviour, and the major health threats where it is important. The immune system comprises a series of organs, cells and chemical messengers which work together as a team to provide defence against infection. Klenerman discusses these components, the criticalsignals that trigger them and how they exert their protective effects, including so-called "innate" immune responses, which react very fast to infection, and "adaptive" immune responses, which have huge diversity and a capacity to recognise and defend against a massive array of micro-organisms. Klenermanalso considers what happens when our immune systems fail to be activated effectively, leading to serious infections, problems with inherited diseases, and also HIV/AIDS. At the opposite extreme, as Klenerman shows, an over-exaggerated immune response leads to inflammatory diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis, as well as allergy and asthma. Finally he looks at the "Immune system v2.o" â how immune therapies and vaccines can be advanced to protect us against the majordiseases of the 21st century.ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.
