The international review and research studies collected here highlight advances in the field of immunology, the study of the body's protection from foreign macromolecules and invading organisms. Also examined are immune responses developed against the body's own proteins and other molecules, and against aberrant cells in tumor immunity. Some specific topics covered include neutrophil apoptosis and innate immunity, glial regulation of beta-amyloid deposition and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease, and the role of avian acute phase protein ovotransferrin in modulating phagocyte function. Other subjects investigated include neurologic manifestations of West Nile virus infection, the role of omega-3 fatty acids in immune development and allergy prevention, and the cholinergic system in lymphocytes. The art program includes color images and explanatory diagrams. Information on the editor is not given.
