Antimicrobial peptides in human health and disease

Author: Richard L Gallo
Publisher: Wymondham, U.K. : Horizon Bioscience, ©2005.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book represents a summary of one of the most important fields in innate immunity. Antimicrobial peptides rapidly and directly inhibit infection by microbes and are of enormous importance in the body's natural defense against disease. In addition, the role of antimicrobial peptides in the development of therapeutic agents for the prevention and treatment of disease is becoming increasingly important. This book  Read more...

Abstract:

This book represents a summary of one of the most important fields in innate immunity. Antimicrobial peptides rapidly and directly inhibit infection by microbes and are of enormous importance in the body's natural defense against disease. In addition, the role of antimicrobial peptides in the development of therapeutic agents for the prevention and treatment of disease is becoming increasingly important. This book provides an understanding of the implications of antimicrobial peptides in human disease. The volume is divided into sections containing reviews of specific families of antimicrobials, select organ systems that have demonstrated a relevance for antimicrobial peptides and, in addition, a more global discussion of these peptides and organs from distinct perspectives.
