Microbe hunters, then and now( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses two important aspects of tuberculosis. The first half reviews some of the biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology of M. tuberculosis and its interactions with macrophages. The second half deals with the interactions of the tubercle bacillus with the host immune system in experimental animals and humans, which may lead to the development of protective immunity or may produce immunopathologic reactions and tissue destruction. The special feature of this book is the in-depth nature of the various aspects of the bacterium and the host immune response to it. The reader will derive a better understanding of the tubercle bacillus and tuberculosis, and of the intricate interactions of the pathogen and the host which can lead either to protective immunity or to disease
The role of nitric oxide in physiology and pathophysiology by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains scientific papers delivered at the Second Annual Symposium titled "The Role of Nitric Oxide in Physiology and Pathophysiology". The symposium was held in Philadelphia at the Jefferson Cancer Institute on October 25, 1993. There were eight speakers selected to participate in the symposium. Nitric Oxide (NO), an endogenous free radical, has been shown recently to mediate several important biological effects. It plays a neuro-transmitter like role in vascular endothelium, a second-messenger role in N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) responsive neurons in the central nervous system (CNS), a neurotoxic role after its release from these neurons, and cytotoxic role after its release by macrophages. In this volume we review among other topics the basic chemistry and physical properties of NO and its various redox forms, and their biochemical mechanism of action, NO synthase isozymes and NO synthase structures, mechanism of NO synthesis, regulation of NOS expression and post-translational modification, NO scavengers and prevention of septic shock, and mechanisms of CNS damage involving NO in virus infections
DNA vaccination/genetic vaccination by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume highlights an exciting and novel area that lies between two fields: gene therapy and vaccination. The application of gene delivery for the in vivo stimulation of immune responses has implications not only for vaccine development but also for the growing area of immunotherapy. Leading laboratories in the area of DNA vaccines have contributed to this important field. Topics covered include applications of genetic vaccines to herpes, hepatitis, cancer autoimmune disease, parasitic diseases, as well as retroviral infections including AIDS. The development of this technology from small animal systems to non-human primates and its implications to man is discussed
The interface between innate and acquired immunity by Max D Cooper( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics of this volume include regulation of the helper T cell subset involved in inflammatory responses versus the subset of helper T cells involved in promoting B cells responses in humoral immunity, the regulation of T cell activity in inflammatory and autoimmune disease by the tumor necrosis factor superfamily of receptors and their ligands, the wide array of inhibitory and activating receptor that regulate natural killer cell function, phylogeny of Ig gene superfamily members linked to the major histocompatibility gene complex, the IgFc receptor family and a newly discovered family of Fc receptor homologs, the role of complement in linking innate and adaptive immunity, and manipulation of the potential for plants to protect themselves by innate and adaptive responses to viruses
Retrovirus infections of the nervous system : current and future perspectives by Michael B. A Oldstone( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume reports on the present state of research into retrovirus infections and related diseases of the nervous system. Today HTLV-1 and possibly closely related HTLV-2 are associated with a variety of human neurological diseases, and research activities in this field may show that human retroviruses can cause a variety of human diseases in addition to those affecting the nervous system. The specific experimental models discussed are the wild mouse ecotropic virus, Moloney murine leukemia virus, and the study of retrovirus infection in nonhuman primates
Borna disease by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Borna disease was first described over 200 years ago, in what is now Southeastern Germany, as a fatal neurologic affliction of horses and was considered a curiosity for many decades. The causative agent was unknown, and the animal species infected in nature were limited to horses and sheep. Today, as described in this volume, the host range has extended to all warm-blooded animals, the genes and proteins of the virus have been identified, and many of the mechanisms responsible for behavioral disturbances are understood. Serologic studies suggest that BDV or related agents are likely to play a role in human neuropsychiatric diseases
Peptides as immunogens by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

Tells the story of how women throughout the ages have responded to situations confronting them in daily life by inventing such items as correction fluid, space helmets, and disposable diapers
Images of biologically active structures in the immune system : their use in biology and medicine by Hilary Koprowski( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diversity of antigen-binding structures of antibody molecules is so vast that every conceivable antigen can be bound by an antibody molecule within the immune system. This is true even for the antigen binding sites of antibodies called idiotypes, which are bound by complementary bind­ ing sites of other antibodies called anti-idiotypes. Thus, anti-idiotypes are structural homologues of antigens. These idiotypic-anti-idiotypic interactions constitute a network within the immune system. Since one lymphocyte produces only one type of antibody molecule, this network is in fact a network of cells. We expect that the network is functional: the appearance of antigen will disturb the equilibrium of the network at the point where it competes with the anti­ idiotypic lymphocyte for binding to the idiotypic lympho­ cyte. It has been known for quite some time that anti­ idiotypic antibody can be used to prime the immune system for memory to an antigen that it has never seen. This phe­ nomenon is now being explored for possible use in immuni­ zation against viruses, bacteria, parasites and tumors as well as for the modulation of autoimmunity. The ability of anti-idiotypes to mimic, both antigenically and function­ ally, the corresponding biologically active molecules seen by an idiotypic antibody was first demonstrated for the hormone insulin and is now being observed in many other systems. The papers assembled in this volume· bring the reader to the cutting edge of the potential practical applica­ tions of the network theory of the immune system
Retroviruses 1 by P. K Vogt( Book )

13 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1. 1 Scope of the Review This review was intended initially as a reference source for those interested in the origins and fITst descriptions ofthe defective avian sarcoma viruses. Quite a few of these viruses have been characterized in the past few years and their varied nomenclature according to source, discoverer, date of isolation or biological properties could result in some con­ fusion among those attempting to follow the literature. Information will be included on the molecular biology of the sarcoma viruses, rather more of which is available than when the review was fITst conceived, although in this respect the review will inevitably be out of date by the time of publication. If any bias of content is introduced, this will be towards a more detailed coverage of the author's own area of interest, the gene products of the defective sarcoma viruses. Rous sarcoma virus (RSV) serves as the model for much of this work and will frequently be referred to for comparative purposes, as will the mammalian defective transforming viruses. Recent reviews provide more complete coverage of these topics (l-4a). This review is complemented by a discussion ofthe avian acute leukaemia viruses, which appears elsewhere in this volume [5]. As will be seen, concentrating primarily on the defective sarcoma viruses and comparing them to RSV can be justified in terms of their biochemical properties as well as their similar biology
