Neuroimmunology by Aaron E. Miller


Original Title: Neuroimmunology

Neuroimmunology is a practical and accessible guide for both common and not-so-common neuroimmunological syndromes. Comprised of a collection of thirty short case vignettes, the information is presented in an easily digestible format that consists of a discussion highlighting the topic in question as well as an answer and advice section. This book is the go-to resource for primary care physicians, neurologists and subspecialists who encounter central and peripheral demyelinating diseases, vasculitis, and other immune system related neurological disorders.

Original Title: Neuroimmunology

The volumes in this series include contemporary techniques significant to a particular branch of neuroscience. They are an invaluable aid to the student as well as the experienced researcher not only in developing protocols in neuroscience but in disciplines where research is becoming closely related to neuroscience. Each volume of Methods in Neurosciences contains an index, and each chapter includes references. Dr. Conn became Editor-in-Chief of the series beginning with Volume 15, so each subsequent volume could be guest-edited by an expert in that specific field. This further strengthens the depth of coverage in Methods in Neurosciences for students and researchers alike. Comprehensive protocols included for the study of: The brain-immune system The neuroimmune system: Effects of the brain on the peripheral immune system Neuroimmune effects from substances of abuse (e.g. cocaine) to hypnosis Measurement of interferons, cytokines, natural killer cells, and major histocompatibility complex molecules Immunohistochemistry methods in the brain Neuropeptides as immunomodulators

Neuroimmunology by Jeremy Brockes


Original Title: Neuroimmunology

Neuroimmunology could be defined as the application of immunological methods to problems in neurobiology but such a definition is so all encompassing as to be unhelpful. It is not a precisely circumscribed discipline but it seems worthwhile at the outset to point to three of the major areas of activity. One rather early use of the term was in connection with studies on the immune response to antigens in the nervous system. This includes topics such as autoimmunity in the central and peripheral nervous sys tems, the response to neural tumors or viral infections, and the im munopathology of such processes. Although not at the forefront of the currently fashionable preoccupation with neuroimmunology, this area continues to be a vital and interesting one from both clinical and basic perspectives. A second very active area is the exploitation of antibodies to iden tified components of neural cells, and in particular to those molecules involved as neurotransmitters, in transmitter synthesis and breakdown, and as synaptic receptors. The immunohistochemical detection of these antigens has led to new insights into the functional organization of the nervous system, and reference to such studies is almost a sz'ne qua non for discussions of most central and peripheral synapses.

Clinical Neuroimmunology by Jack P. Antel


Original Title: Clinical Neuroimmunology

Provides broad and comprehensive coverage of the interaction between the nervous and immune systems in both normal and diseased states. Understanding this interaction is fundamental to developing therapeutic approaches to disease and injury of the nervous system that are currently only marginally amenable to therapy. Neuroimmunology is a well-recognised and growing specialty world wide, both at the basic science and clinical level. Chapters are dedicated to the role of the immune system in disorders affecting both the central and peripheral nervous systems, including important neurodegenerative diseases (such as multiple sclerosis and HIV-related neural degeneration) which cause life-long disability. Extensive coverage is given to a whole array of immune-directed therapies.

Neuroimmunology In Clinical Practice by Bernadette Kalman


Original Title: Neuroimmunology In Clinical Practice

Written by field experts, Neuroimmunology in Clinical Practice fills a void in traditional neuroimmunology literature, which tends to cover the discipline’s scientific aspects with little emphasis on clinical applications. This unique book is essential reading in clinical neuroimmunology. Written by field experts this book provides a comprehensive description of immune mediated neurological disorders complemented with the most pertinent and up to date scientific data Covers inflammatory demyelination in the central nervous system, autoimmune diseases of the peripheral nervous system and the muscle, and disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems Fills a gap in existing neuroimmunology literature by focusing on clinical applications

Neuroimmunology Of The Skin by Richard D. Granstein


Original Title: Neuroimmunology Of The Skin

Much anecdotal information has suggested an influence of psychology and the nervous system on immunity within the skin and the expression of inflammatory skin disorders. Recent years have seen an explosion of knowledge providing a scientific basis for important regulatory interactions between the nervous system, the endocrine system and the immune system within the skin. The results of recent investigations have important implications, not only for an understanding of cutaneous immunity, but also for the development of novel treatments for diseases involving abnormal inflammation or immune reactivity within the skin. This book provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary review of the molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry and clinical aspects of nervous system–immune system interactions within the skin. It includes contributions from leading world experts in these areas. The contents are relevant to both investigators and clinicians interested in the skin, its functions and its disorders.

Clinical Neuroimmunology by Syed A. Rizvi


Original Title: Clinical Neuroimmunology

Clinical Neuroimmunology: Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders serves as an indispensable resource for physicians interested in, and dealing with, this very complex and evolving branch of neurology. This comprehensive title provides an introduction to basic neuroimmunology and principles of immunotherapy and also serves as a thorough guide to immune-mediated disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system, as well as other systemic disorders with a significant neuroimmunologic component. The chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific information. This volume is made to simplify complex immunological mechanisms and to focus on practical patient-related issues. Clinical Neuroimmunology: Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders is an invaluable addition to the literature and will be of significant interest to neurologists, residents and fellows, internists, and general practitioners who treat patients with neurologic disorders and other systemic autoimmune diseases.

Autonomic Neuroimmunology by John Bienenstock


Original Title: Autonomic Neuroimmunology

While it may appear that the nervous and immune systems exist as two separate entities, groundbreaking observations have positively identified anatomic connections between elements of the nervous system and cells of adaptive immunity. Building on this research, Autonomic Neuroimmunology presents a scientific discussion of the current understanding of these vital neuroimmunological interactions and their implications for normal psychology and disease states. Contributors document the cell biological mechanisms for the neuropeptide activation of mast cells, and analyze how one or more adrenergenic and peptidergic messengers modulate immunity. They also explain the pathways by which cholinergic factors may suppress immunological inflammation. The potential implications of organ system-selective neuroimmunology for host defense and diseases are thoroughly discussed for the skin, the intestines, the bladder, and the lungs. With modern neuroimmunology now firmly established as a scientific discipline, this volume supports this promising science as a pathway to novel diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for diseases of the neural, immune, and endocrine systems.
