Natural Killer Cells: Basic Science and Clinical Application, 2010

Natural Killer Cells: Basic Science and Clinical Application
Michael T. Lotze and Angus W. Thomson
ISBN-10: 0123704545
ISBN-13: 978-0123704542
Academic Press

The Natural Killer [NK] Cell plays a critical role in regulating the innate and adaptive immune response to pathogens, injury and stress. Although originally portrayed as primarily a lytic cell, the NK cell has emerged as a cell capable of helper function, expansion, contraction, and accelerated memory responses - features similar to other adaptive immune cells. It is a professional accelerator of immunity, mediating dendritic cell maturation and its precursors critical for the origin and development of secondary lymph node structures. NK cells also play an essential role in mammalian placentation by regulating the quality of blood supply to the growing fetus. These characteristics place the NK cell in a unique position, with a major role in sculpting the host response to damage and injury.
This volume is the first complete and authoritative reference to explore these emergent, exciting aspects of the NK cell, placing it at the center of damage/danger recognition and the response to stress. Natural Killer Cells details NK cell biology, the role of NK cells in regulating immunity through interactions with other cells and tissues, the participation of NK cells in disease and special topics in NK biology.

Williams Hematology, 8th ed. 2010

Williams Hematology, Eighth Edition
Kenneth Kaushansky, Marshall Lichtman, E. Beutler, Thomas Kipps, et al.
ISBN-10: 0071621512
ISBN-13: 978-0071621519
McGraw-Hill Professional

Edition after edition, Williams Hematology has guided generations of clinicians, biomedical researchers, and trainees in many disciplines through the origins, pathophysiological mechanisms, and management of benign and malignant disorders of blood cells and coagulation proteins. The book begins with the evaluation of the patient and progresses to the molecular and cellular underpinnings of normal and pathological hematology. Subsequent sections present disorders of the erythrocyte, granulocytes and monocytes, lymphocytes and plasma cells, malignant myeloid and lymphoid diseases, hemostasis and thrombosis, and transfusion medicine.
Featuring a brand-new full-color presentation, the Eighth Edition of Williams Hematology is extensively revised to reflect the latest views of experts in the field. Two new chapters examine the importance of genomics in hematology and cell therapy for tissue replacement, whereas other chapters have been revised to incorporate the newest clinical approaches to the leukemias and lymphomas, and the application of targeted therapy in the treatment of hematologic disorders.
New to this Edition:
  • Full-color presentation conveniently integrates images of blood and tissue findings where they are cited in the text

  • Two additional chapters, “Epigenetics and Genomics,” and “Principles of Multipotential Cell Therapy for Tissue Replacement,” offer insights into the application of genomic and monoclonal therapies to hematology and emphasize their role in improving diagnostic and therapeutic methods

  • Expanded coverage of non-Hodgkin lymphoma includes separate chapters on its constituent diseases, providing an in-depth assessment of the diagnosis and management of these disorders

  • A comprehensive discussion of erythrocytosis and thrombocytosis reviews reactive and malignant forms of myeloproliferation, encompassing new genetic advances in these disorders along with more targeted therapeutic approaches

  • Companion CD includes a large selection of morphologies, illustrations, and drawings from the book, in a presentation-ready PowerPoint format
