About this book

In Allergy and Allergic Diseases: The New Mechanisms and Therapeutics, a distinguished international panel of researchers and clinicians review the latest findings on the cellular and molecular foundations of allergic diseases, particularly those of the airway, skin, and bowel. The key topics treated span the range from epidemiology and the mechanisms of inflammation, to signaling in pathogenesis and allergic reactions. Each contributor treats the pathophysiology of allergy in various organ-based diseases and syndromes, emphasizing important new findings from cellular and molecular biology that illuminate these diseases, but also reveal important leads for the development of novel drugs and therapeutic strategies.

Allergy and Allergic Diseases: The New Mechanisms and Therapeutics highlights the interface between basic and clinical science in allergic disease. Its up-to-date, clinically relevant approach constitutes the new standard knowledge base in clinical immunology and allergy, not only for specialists, but also for internists, for scientists studying the cellular and molecular biology of inflammation and immunity, and for researchers focused on drug discovery and therapeutics. Authoritative and timely, Allergy and Allergic Diseases is clearly the today's indispensable new resource for all physicians and investigators seeking a deeper understanding of allergy in both its basic and clinical aspects.












Reviews

"The book presents a broad overview of the field at a level that is easy to understand. . .provides an advanced understanding of the current state of the field and leaves the reader receptive to new concepts and therapies for allergic disease that will soon be forthcoming"-Dale T. Umetsu, MD, PhD, review in the April 29, 1999 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine

"...an excellent book on allergy and allergic diseases....a carefully thought-out whole, starting with IgE mechanisms, environmental allergens, and the new "jungle hypothesis" of atopic disorders beginning in early childhood. The book then proceeds to cellular and molecular aspects of inflammation, highlighting the key points of the pathogenesis of allergy in different organs, and ending with the essentials of treatment." - Allergy

"The book certainly has the five main features described in the presentation: it is written by leading authorities in allergy research...it provides an updated comprehensive survey of the mechanisms of allergic diseases; it illustrates the cellular and molecular bases of allergy and asthma; it emphasizes pathogenesis and the relevance of mechanisms to clinical expression; it includes useful information on therapeutics and possibilities for drug discovery." - EACCI
