This lecture note explains cells and tissues of the immune system,
lymphocyte development, the structure and function of antigen receptors, the
cell biology of antigen processing and presentation, including molecular
structure and assembly of MHC molecules, the biology of cytokines,
leukocyte-endothelial interactions, and the pathogenesis of immunologically
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.
