AIDS Vaccine Research by Flossie Wong-Staal, Robert C. Gallo

By Flossie Wong-Staal, Robert C. Gallo

This reference describes the newest advances within the improvement and layout of an HIV preventive vaccine-detailing the pathogenesis and genetic variability of HIV an infection for the development of molecular and healing ideas to lessen the development and transmission of AIDS. With contributions via universally famous experts within the box, AIDS Vaccine learn discusses

  • major hindrances within the id of a preventive vaccine
  • the function of innate immunity in administration of HIV an infection
  • the influence of hugely energetic antiretroviral treatment (HAART) on AIDS examine
  • the production of an efficient mucosal DNA vaccine
  • the impression of the AIDS epidemic on constructing international locations supplying approximately 2000 modern references to facilitate additional learn, AIDS Vaccine study is a well timed handbook compatible for immunologists, virologists, pathologists, epidemiologists, pharmacologists, microbiologists, hematologists, hepatologists, AIDS researchers, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate scholars in those disciplines.

    Diagnostic & Therapeutic Advances in Hematologic Malignancies (Cancer Treatment and Research)

    There's no box of drugs within which advances in remedy have been so heavily associated with a greater knowing of molecular medication than within the quarter of hematologic malignancies. Diagnostic and healing Advances in Hematologic Malignancies will supply practitioners and educational clinicians with a greater knowing of the continuously evolving innovations during this region.

    Endothelial Cells in Health and Disease

    This reference serves because the first resource to assemble present facts from endothelial mobile biologists in quite a few disciplines to summarize fresh growth within the field-providing a whole knowing of the endothelium in future health and disorder and demonstrating its strength as a healing goal.

    Phenotypic and Genotypic Diagnosis of Malignancies: An Immunohistochemical and Molecular Approach

    Rigorously designed as a simple and speedy reference, this laptop guide is for operating pathologists who have to make certain the actual form of melanoma they're facing in a sufferer. To this finish, the ebook comprises many huge tables of data to permit a quick research of effects, supplying the entire proper info to diagnose the total variety of other tumors in people.

    Lecture notes. / Haematology

    Haematology Lecture Notes is an available and concise best-selling learn advisor, outlining the body structure, pathology and therapy of the commonest blood issues. generally revised and up-to-date to mirror the huge advances within the figuring out of the molecular biology and pathogenesis of haematological problems, it presents the middle wisdom required by way of all scientific scholars and junior medical professionals.

    Cytokines that are characteristic of TH1-type responses, such as IL-2, IL-12, TNF-α, and IFN-γ, upregulate CCR5 expression (74,344–346), whereas TH2-associated cytokines, such as IL-4 and IL-10, tend to upregulate CXCR4 expression and downregulate CCR5 expression (317,344,346–349). Stimulation of CD4ϩ T cells through CD3 and CD28 protects cells from HIV infection and potently downregulates HIV replication in infected cells (350–352); this effect appears to be due in part to downregulation of CCR5 (353).

    Cytokines that enhance viral replication (ϩ), inhibit viral replication (Ϫ), and enhance or inhibit viral replication depending upon the conditions (ϩ/Ϫ) are shown. that have been reported to upregulate HIV replication in vitro include IL-1β, IL-2, IL-3, IL-6, IL-7, IL-12, IL-15, IL-18, TNF-α, TNF-β, and the colony-stimulating factors (CSF) macrophage (M)–CSF and granulocyte-macrophage (GM)–CSF (reviewed in Ref. 283; see also Refs. 308–313). IFN-α, IFN-β, and IL-16 (275,314,315) are primarily suppressors of HIV production, whereas other cytokines, such as IL-4 (316,317), IL-10 (318–321), IL-13 (316), IFN-γ (322,323), Immunopathogenesis of HIV Infection 29 and TGF-β (324,325), reduce or enhance viral replication depending on the infected cell type and the culture conditions.
