Basic Principles and Clinical CorrelatesBook - 1988
Comprehensively revised chapters reflect enormous advances in understanding. Following an overview and historical perspectives on inflammation, sections cover cellular components, mediators, cellular mechanisms, responses to inflammation, clinical correlates, and therapeutic modulation of inflammation. Specific topics include persistent mucosal colonization by H. pylori and the induction of inflammation; urticaria and angioedema; the role of inflammation in sepsis and sepsis shock; role of Interleukin-10, Interleukin-4, and Interleukin-13 in resolving inflammatory responses; prostaglandins and inflammation; cytokines in normal and pathogenic inflammatory responses; biochemistry, mechanism of action, and biology of the interferons; and the role of co-stimulation in the host response to infection. This edition is dedicated to co-founding editor Ira M. Goldstein who died in 1992. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
