First published in 1990. This important new text covers a wide area of thymology in both the theoretical and practical aspects. In view of current information, a crucial role of endocrine thymus is presented in the creation, maintenance, and senescence of neuro-endocrine-immune homeostasis. In particular, mechanisms are described (which are basically responsible for the T cell maturation and selection) for the hierarchic organization of the immune system and its thymic dependent immune competence in terms of tolerance and immunity. A detailed presentation of the structure and biological properties of a number of well-defined thymic hormones is included. Their clinical applications and results obtained in inherited or acquired immunodeficiencies and in neoplasmic diseases are also reviewed on the grounds of numerous representative clinical trials. A perspective and potential scope of immunorestorative therapy and prevention with thymic hormones and other thymomimetic drugs are outlined. Researchers, practitioners, and students will find this book to be a useful and essential source of information.
First publishe din 1992: Find out by reading Behavior and Immunity, a new volume that consists of papers presented at the Scientific Meeting of the Australian Behavioral Immunology Group (ABIG) held in November, 1990, at the University of Newcastle, Australia. The ABIG was established in response to the need to provide a forum for the presentation of data and exchange of ideas regarding the concept of brain, behavior, and immunity. The papers presented in this volume represent the state of the art in a number of areas where these interactions have been studied. Information is presented regarding the biochemistry, neurophysiology, and endocrinology of nervous system/immune system interactions; the role of behavioral conditioning in immunity; the effects of sleep and biological rhythms on immune function; the role of lifestyle, life events, and exercise in immunity; and the impact of psychoimmunology in clinical medicine. Researchers in immunology, psychology, neurology; physicians; and lay people with an interest in the interaction between lifestyle and health will find a wealth of information in this stimulating volume.
First published in 2001: Written for researchers and professionals in the fields of biomedical research, immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology, pathology, and biotechnology, Basic Methods in Antibody Production and Characterization uses a cookbook approach to presenting the methods for the production, characterization, and use of antibodies. Antibodies described include polyclonal and monoclonal and those made by the phage display. Basic Methods in Antibody Production and Characterization focuses on specific aspects of antibodies and takes readers on a step-by-step process from antigen preparation to immunizations, adjuvants, screening, purification, storage, and applications. Introductory material accompanies each chapter, giving readers a better understanding of the methods and applications. Ample references arm researchers with many applications pertaining to the particular technology.
