Cardiovascular diseases have emerged as a major health problem in India and other developing countries. Emphasizing cardiovascular diseases in these areas, the Illustrated Textbook of Cardiovascular Pathology has been compiled for use by residents and consultants in pathology, cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, and internal medicine. Its simple and systematic approach is easy to read and clearly delineates the disease process. An overview of the normal heart provides a point of reference for further discussion. A straightforward approach to congenital heart disease evaluation using line diagrams helps facilitate and solidify understanding.

This volume, derived from Encyclopedia of Virology, provides an overview of the development of virology during the last ten years. Entries detail the nature, origin, phylogeny and evolution of viruses. It then moves into a summary of our understanding of the structure and assembly of virus particles and describes how this knowledge was obtained. Genetic material of viruses and the different mechanisms used by viruses to infect and replicate in their host cells are highlighted. The volume is rounded out with an overview of some major groups of viruses with particular attention being given to our current knowledge of their molecular biology.

Practical Immunopathology of the Skin, 2002
(Current Clinical Pathology)
Bruce R. Smoller
ISBN-10: 1588291499
ISBN-13: 978-1588291493

Bruce R. Smoller, md, concisely reviews for practitioners and students alike the science of immunopathology, its many basic laboratory tools, and their multiple diagnostic uses in actual clinical case studies. The author presents in an easily digestible form a dictionary of antibody probes, summarizing for each antibody the targeted antigen and its cellular function, its diagnostic utility, and, when available, its sensitivities and specificities for identifying various neoplasms. Real clinical cases from the author's practice demonstrate the benefits of immunopathology.

Virology: Principles and Applications 2007
John B. Carter and Venetia A. Saunders
ISBN-10: 0470023864
ISBN-13: 978-0470023860
John Wiley & Sons Inc.,






This is not a textbook of fundamental virology, medical virology, veterinary virology, plant virology or of bacteriophages, but a bit of each of these! The general pattern of the book is that principles of virology are covered earlier and applications are covered later. There is no strict demarcation between the two, however, so the reader may be made aware of important applications while principles are being introduced.

Th 17 Cells- Role in Inflammation and Autoimmune Disease, 2009

Th 17 Cells: Role in Inflammation and Autoimmune Disease
(Progress in Inflammation Research)
Valérie Quesniaux, Bernhard Ryffel, Franco Padova
ISBN-10: 3764386800
ISBN-13: 978-3764386801
Birkhäuser Basel



With the recent definition of the Th17 cell subset, a new paradigm in innate and adaptive immunity has been established. This book describes the function of the Th17 cell subset and its prevalent role in many inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The mechanism by which this T cell subset is generated and maintained shows specific differences between mice and man which are reviewed. One characteristic of Th17 cells is to secrete specific and unique cytokines such as IL-17A, IL-17F and IL-22; their functions are described in detail. These cytokines have acquired a prevalent role in many pathological conditions in animal models and in humans. Targeting these cytokines as well as the generation of Th17 cells may open new ways to treat many autoimmune diseases. The role of Th17 in infectious conditions is also addressed.

This book is organized for versatility: to allow the student "in a rush" to go quickly through the scenarios and check the corresponding answers and to provide more detailed information for the student who wants throught-provoking explanations. The answers are arranged from simple to complex: a summary of the pertinent points, the bare answers, a clinical correlation, an approach to the pathology topic, a comprehension test at the end for reinforcement or emphasis, and a list of references for further reading. The clinical cases are arranged by system to better reflect the organization within the basic science.

There are increasing relevant evidences in favor of the role of IgE in cancer immune surveillance and there are several new approaches exploiting IgE to treat cancer which include the development of IgE specific for cancer antigens, the use of using IgE as adjuvant of cancer vaccines, and novel vaccination approaches capable of triggering an anti-tumor IgE response. The book will include extensive epidemiological studies and preclinical results of IgE-based approaches.

To reflect the changing face of undergraduate and postgraduate medical education, this new edition emphasises the principles of disease processes and their underlying mechanisms, bringing the content up to date with the latest developments from the fields of molecular and cellular biology. The focus is on describing the fundamental features of pathophysiological processes with examples to illustrate the similar mechanisms underlying apparently diverse clinical conditions. By understanding the cellular interactions in one disease area, similar principles can be applied to other disease groups and to the scientific basis of medical management and treatment strategies.

Modern Parasitology: A Textbook of Parasitology 2nd ed. 1993
F.E.G. Cox.
ISBN 0-632-025859
B1ackwell



This is a thorough revision and update of the highly successful first edition, which which achieved sales in excess of 4,500. The text serves as a comprehensive introduction to parasitology for both undergraduate and beginning graduate students. In this edition, particular emphasis is placed on parasites of human and veterinary importance. The first three chapters in the text are concerned with how parasites 'work,' their biochemistry, molecular and cell biology and physiology. The remaining chapters cover ecology and epidemiology, immunology and chemotherapy, with the final chapter covering integrated control. This new edition contains new material on cell and molecular biology, vectors and control, which is in contrast to the general biological approach of the first edition. The second edition will succeed the first as the major text on parasitology for students in biology, zoology, microbiology, medicine, veterinary medicine, tropical medicine and public health.
