About this book


This comprehensive volume assembles the insights and experience of over twenty experts and thought leaders in the field of autoimmune disease and immunotherapy. These discussions represent some of the newest concepts in autoimmune mechanisms and an array of new treatments that would have been considered science fiction only two decades ago. This book provides a wide-ranging review of two main arenas of current research: that of autoimmune mechanisms of disease and that of the latest developments in immunotherapy, with an emphasis upon multiple sclerosis. The conclusions reached by these authors will influence our thinking about autoimmune disease mechanisms and our methods of patient treatment in one of the fastest developing areas of modern medicine. Immune Regulation and Immunotherapy in Autoimmune Disease is an ideal book for researchers, clinicians, physicians, and graduate students in the fields of immunology, microbiology, infectious disease, virology, pharmacology, and medicine.
