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.
