Neuroendocrine and Immune Crosstalk by George P. Chrousos

Book Description

Crosstalk between the neuroendocrine and immune systems plays an essential role in inflammatory, autoimmune, and allergic diseases. An international group of scientists from the fields of neurobiology, neuroendocrinology, immunology, and behavioral sciences reports here on recent advances in our understanding of the communication and modulation taking place between the neuroendocrine and immunological systems. In an effort to incorporate all recent knowledge in this field, broad aspects of endocrinology and neuropsychiatric and autoimmune disorders is included, with special attention given to recent progress in molecular biology and genetics. In particular, the volume focuses on diseases of the nervous system and their modulation by the immune and endocrine systems, as well as on the neuroimmunomodulation of inflammatory, autoimmune, and allergic diseases with an emphasis on the female gender. Special care has been taken by the editors to balance basic and clinical information. The volume is divided into sections: the cytokine and neuropeptide signal transduction systems and their immunomodulatory properties, the neuroendocrine immune basis of rheumatic disease, models of inflammation, the immunology of neuropsychiatric and allergic disorders, neuroendocrine and autoimmune adaptations in aging, neuroimmune interactions in chronic pain disorders and infectious diseases, and finally a structural and functional overview of the stress system. Clinical applications have been extrapolated from the basic knowledge and physiology of neuroimmune interactions, so this volume will provide a useful update for both researchers and clinicians.

Books By Author George P. Chrousos

Neuroendocrinology by George P. Chrousos Neuroendocrinology, Hardback (June 2010)

Neuroendocrinology is a discipline which originated about 50 years ago as a branch of Endocrinology and that is now strictly linked to neuroscience. These volumes cover the role of genetics in many endocrine-related events, like neuroendocrinological diseases and endocrine depenedent cancers.

Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis by George P. Chrousos Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis, Hardback (July 2008)

The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis controls reactions to stress and regulates various body processes such as digestion, the immune system, mood and sexuality, and energy usage. This volume focuses on the immune system and provides experimental and clinical data to support the understanding in the field.

Women's Health and Disease by George P. Chrousos Women's Health and Disease, Paperback (May 2007)

The volume comprises chapters on first menstruation, hypothalamic amenorrhea, implantation and recurrent abortion, XX metabolic syndrome, endometriosis, menopause, osteoporosis, minimally invasive surgery, assisted reproduction, ultrasound imaging in obstetrics, estrogen receptor modulators, and urogynecology.

Stress, Obesity, and Metabolic Syndrome by George P. Chrousos Stress, Obesity, and Metabolic Syndrome, Paperback (December 2006)

The mysteries of stress and its bodily effects revive old challenges and provide us with new ones.
