About this book

Immunoendocrinology is a rapidly developing field of research that seeks to understand the intersection of the immune and endocrine systems. Immunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects explores in detail the current knowledge of immunoendocrinology, namely endocrine disorders produced by disorders of immune function. Chapters cover both basic pathophysiology informed by studies of animal models as well as current understanding of multiple related clinical diseases—their pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapy. Immunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects captures the central role of immunoendocrinologic processes in the pathogenesis of not only type 1 diabetes but in a range of other autoimmune and endocrine disorders.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book aims to comprehensively review current knowledge of endocrine disorders produced by disorders of immune function. … Overall, Immunoendocrinology: Scientific & Clinical Aspects is a very informative book and succeeds in its aims. … It is an essential read for those wanting a solid introduction to the current immunoendocrinological landscape. It would be an excellent starting point for those commencing studies in this field, be they medics, undergrads, postgrads or postdocs. This book is a must have for any good Biomedical library.” (Charlotte Williams, Immunology News, November, 2011)

“The book written by internationally recognized experts is divided into 3 parts … . An important treatise, well written and referenced, of interest to endocrinologists, especially diabetologists, immunologists and those engaged in autoimmunity research.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 9 (1), September, 2011)

“This book covers underlying pathophysiological mechanisms of autoimmune endocrine disease, as well as important clinical aspects such as diagnosis and therapy. … audience for this book includes endocrinologists with a particular interest in autoimmune endocrinopathies, as well as academic researchers in the field. … helpful for physicians who care for patients with other autoimmune diseases … . this is a great introduction to the field of immunoendocrinology. … The chapters are well written and informative. I recommend it very highly.” (Ronald N. Cohen, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2011)
