Immune Tolerance Research Developments (Google eBook)
Emile B. Pontell
Nova Publishers, 2008 - Medical - 201 pages
Immunological tolerance (innate or acquired) is briefly introduced as "the process by which the immune system does not attack an antigen." In two expert commentaries and eight contributed chapters, international scientists examine how advances in understanding regulatory T-cells and the use of transgenic plants and other recombinant technology methods are treating such challenges as inducing immune tolerance in patients with hemophilia, kidney transplants, and thymus gland defect-related intolerance problems in Type I diabetes. The chapter on stem cells discusses proliferating sources that circumvent ethical controversies and their application in preventing organ rejection. No details are given on the editor's professional background.
