T Cells in Arthritis (Progress in Inflammation Research)

T Cells in Arthritis (Progress in Inflammation Research) Lowest new price: $11.86
Lowest used price: $7.50
List price: $299.00
Brand: Brand: Birkhäuser

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common and most severe form of inflammatory arthritis. The pathogenesis of RA has been the subject of intense research for several decades. The prevailing hypotheses have changed over the years, and have attempted to incorporate the most recent data. Although T cells represent an important component of the cells which infiltrate the joint synovium, their contribution at a late stage of the disease remains a matter of debate. The goal of this book is to outline the major arguments and data suggesting that T cells may, or may not, be central players in the pathogenesis of chronic RA. While each of the editors and authors has his/her own bias (as will be clear by reading the respective chapters), our hope is that the readers will enjoy a complete and balanced view of the critical questions and experiments. This is not just an intellectual exercise since the direction of future therapeutic interventions depends heavily on how one interprets the pathogenesis of RA and the contribution of T cells.

Free Radicals in Inflammation (Progress in Inflammation Research)

Free Radicals in Inflammation (Progress in Inflammation Research) Lowest new price: $118.32
Lowest used price: $83.40
List price: $237.00

The book deals with the role of both oxygen- and nitrogen-centred free radicals in inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. The well-known involvement of the superoxide anion radical in the bactericidal action of inflammatory cells suggests that radicals and the inflammatory response are inextricably linked. The widespread involvement of radicals in human disease seems inevitable, because inflammation is such a conspicuous component of human disease. For the first time, the present text integrates contributions from leading research groups who have been investigating the role of radicals within the context of all stages of inflammtion, such as the recruitment of inflammatory cells, their bactericidal action, inflammatory tissue destruction and inflammatory cell death by apoptosis. The chapters are broadly organised so that they trace the clinical course of the acute and chronic inflammtory response, emphasising the therapeutic implications of recent data on the contribution of nitric oxide and related nitrogen-centred species. The book will be of interest to academic and industrial researchers and clinicians with interests in the fields of inflammation or free radical biology.
