Cytokines and Chemokines in Autoimmune Disease

Pere Santamaria (Editor), «Cytokines and Chemokines in Autoimmune Disease»
Springer | ISBN 0306476932 | 2001 | PDF | 1,9 Mb | 316 Pages

This volume is ideal for individuals interested in taking an in-depth look at how cytokines and chemokines participate in autoimmune disorders, and how cytokines and chemokines can be used as targets for therapeutic intervention. The outstanding features of this book are that it is divided in chapters each focusing on specific, highly prevalent autoimmune disorders. The role of cytokines and chemokines in each of these disorders is dissected in the context of the autoinimune responses that drive these diseases. Importantly, each chapter is meant to provide an in-depth review of how cytokines and chemokines participate in each disease, rather than very specific aspects of cytokine or chemokine biology. The book therefore provides an integrated view of how multiple cytokines and chemokines participate in the initiation and evolution of both systemic and organ-specific pathological immune responses.
