Structural Biology of the Complement System

Dimitrios Morikis, John D. Lambris
March 29, 2005

Of recent, the structure of the complement system has received considerable attention, including the publication of several three-dimensional structures of complement proteins. This has led to the need for an authoritative resource to provide a complete overview of the basics, as well as an...

Investigative Immunotoxicology

Helen Tryphonas, Michel Fournier, Barry R. Blakley, Judit Smits, Pauline Brousseau
January 27, 2005

Investigative Immunotoxicology provides a critical evaluation of proposed experimental animal models and approaches, and discusses the contribution that immunotoxicity can make to the overall assessment of chemical-induced adverse health effects on humans and the ecosystem. Following a review of...

Lymphocyte Homing to the Skin: Immunology, Immunopathology, and Therapeutic Perspectives

Wolf-Henning Boehncke
December 28, 2004

Over the last decade, enormous progress in the understanding of T-cell homing has made it possible to identify the multitude of molecules involved, such as cytokines, chemokines, and adhesion molecules, and to unravel their complex interactions resulting in controlled, non-random T-cell...

Cytotoxins and Immunotoxins for Cancer Therapy: Clinical Applications

Koji Kawakami, Bharat B. Aggarwal, Raj K. Puri
November 15, 2004

Recent advances in cytotoxins and immunotoxins are accelerating our understanding of cancer and leading to more effective therapeutic treatments. Although a large number of articles have been published on these cytotoxins and immunotoxins, this important information has yet to be compiled into one...

Developmental Immunotoxicology

Steven D. Holladay
November 15, 2004

Despite rapidly increasing interest in developmental immunotoxicology, there is not yet a textbook focused on this hot area of research. Developmental Immunotoxicology fills the void with overviews of immune system development in experimental animal and human models, and discusses the complex...
