Anaphylaxis and Hypersensitivity Reactions by Mariana C. Castells

Despite wide recognition as a serious public health problem, anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity reactions remain under-recognized and under-diagnosed. This book fills the gaps in our understanding of the identification of triggers, recognition of clinical presentations, understanding of the natural history of these reactions, and selection of treatment strategies including those focused on cellular and molecular targets. The book provides a detailed examination of disease etiology, pathogenesis, and pathophysiology and their correlation to clinical practice. Forefront knowledge of the mediators and mechanisms of anaphylaxis is covered with an emphasis on how new discoveries shape our current and emerging therapies.


From the reviews: Presents a detailed look at the current state of knowledge on anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity reactions. ... achieves its objectives in a very readable fashion. The book is meant for clinicians of all types, translational researchers, and basic researchers. ... useful for a graduate level course. ... quite readable and one could go through the book from cover to cover without losing interest. ... packed with useful information about anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity reactions. The material is presented in a clear and readable fashion by experts. (Marion C. Cohen, Doody's Review Service, June, 2011)

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
