This book that
treats in an integrated way all factors affecting variation in infectious
disease. It is a superb teaching tool and a rich source of ideas for new and
experienced researchers. Topics covered includes: Vertebrate Immunity, Benefits
of Antigenic Variation, Molecular Processes, Generative Mechanisms,
Immunodominance within Hosts, Parasite Escape within Hosts, Population
Consequences, Immunological Variability of Hosts, Genetic Structure of Parasite
Populations, Experimental Evolution: Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus, Influenza,
This note explains the
following topics: Atopy, Allergy, Hypersensitivity reactions, Pathomechanism,
Allergic and non allergic rhinitis, Food allergy, Urticaria, angioedema,
Anaphylaxis, Drug allergy and Sting insect allergy.
Allergic diseases, are a
number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to
something in the environment that usually causes little problem in most people.
The chapters included in the book Allergic diseases - New Insights addressed a
variety of important topics related to distinct aspects related to allergy. The
contribution of outstanding expert authors from many countries provided update
reviews on basic, clinical and treatment aspects and put in evidence further
research regarding the knowledge of immune system responses and key points of
allergic inflammatory reactions.
This note covers the following topics: Adaptve Defense Mechanisms,
The Adaptive Immune Response, Vaccination, Immunoglobulin Classes,
Immunoglobulin Diagnostics, Lymphatic System, T Cells And T Cell
Receptor, Inadequate Defense, Disease Caused By Immune Reactions, Immune
Complex Diseases, Damage By Cellular Immune Responses.
This note covers the following topics: Pathogens and
antigens, Cord blood transplants, Innate immune response, Adaptive immune
response, Antibody diversity, Antigen combining sites, Allergy, Cellular
immunity, Clonal selection theory, Regulation by the MHC, Lack of
immune response to self, HLA genetic diversity and Monoclonal
This note provides the procedures for the conjugation of
immunoglobulins for the following molecules: Fluorescein (FITC),
Phycoerythrin (PE), Cy5PE, Cy7PE, Texas Red (TR), Allophycocyanin (APC),
Cy5, Cy7APC, Cascade Blue and Biotin. It also explains the protocols for
conjugation of Annexin V to the following molecules: FITC, PE, TR-BSA, APC
