Case Studies in Immunology: A Clinical Companion (Geha, Case Studies in Immunology: A Clinical Companion) 6th Edition

Case Studies in Immunology, Sixth Edition, presents major topics of immunology through a selection of clinical cases that reinforce and extend the basic science. The case histories illustrate essential points about the mechanisms of immunity and describe immunological problems seen in the clinic. This new edition vividly illustrates the importance of an understanding of immunology in diagnosis and therapy. Case Studies in Immunology highlights major common disorders of immunity, including hypersensitivity types I-IV, immune deficiencies, and autoimmune disorders. Each case history is preceded by basic scientific facts essential to understanding the immunology behind the specific disorders. An end-of-case summary, questions, and discussion points conclude each case.

Case Studies in Immunology can be used as a stand-alone book, or as a clinical companion alongside Janeway’s Immunobiology, Eighth Edition. A marginal icon in Janeway’s Immunobiology provides the reader with a link to the relevant Case Study, where the science is applied in a clinical setting.

The book includes a total of 53 cases. The Sixth Edition is extensively revised and updated and includes ten new cases:

  • DiGeorge Syndrome
  • Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis
  • Chediak-Higashi Syndrome
  • Hyper IgE Syndrome
  • Ataxia Telangiectasia
  • Warts, Hypogammaglobulinemia, Infections, and Myelokathexis (WHIM) Syndrome
  • Severe Congenital Neutropenia
  • Recurrent Herpes Simplex Encephalitis
  • Systemic Onset Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Immunogenetics of Fungal Diseases 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This book provides up-to-date information on immunogenetics of fungal diseases in the context of primary and acquired immunodeficiencies. Different aspects of this emerging field are covered, including epidemiology of fungal diseases, innate and adaptive antifungal immunity, and the role of immunogenetics in defining susceptibility to fungal diseases in primary (CMC, CGD, etc.) immunodeficiencies and hematologic patients. The available information will also be discussed in the scope of new biomarker discovery and development of immunotherapeutic approaches for personalized diagnostics and therapy. The book addresses Professors, researchers and advanced students of Medicine, Immunology, Microbiology and Genetics.

Neuro-Immuno-Gastroenterology 1st ed. 2016 Edition

This book addresses important issues regarding the interaction between the nervous system, the immune system, and the digestive system. Gut flora has a profound influence on the shaping of the immune response, not only in the gastrointestinal system but also in the nervous system. Fascinatingly, manipulation of intestinal immune responses can be used to modulate neurological disease. Conversely, the nervous system and the psyche have significant effects on the functioning of the gut and liver.

After introductory chapters on the neurology, the immunology and microbiology of the gut, the effects of the gut immune system and gut flora and its manipulation on neurological disease are discussed, followed by molecular mimicry and immune tolerance in neuroimmune diseases. Additionally, several chapters deal with gastrointestinal manifestations of neurological diseases.

Neuro-Immuno-Gastroenterology is aimed at neurologists, gastroenterologists, and immunologists.
