Conclusion: All these results showed that IFN-[gamma], TNF-[alpha], IL-23, IL-17 and OPN levels increase both in lesion and serum in psoriasis patients, however, further investigation should be made in order to assess their role in the immunopathogenesis
of psoriasis and their relationship with the disease and comorbidities.
Drug allergies can be classified by the underlying immunopathogenesis
or by occurence time of reactions which is frequently used in the diagnostic approach.
In conclusion, intrahepatic lymphocytes are believed to be directly involved in the immunopathogenesis
of chronic liver diseases (Wang et al.
Most saw immunology as predominantly a laboratory science with little application to clinical practice; this highlighted a gap between clinical management of patients and theoretical understanding of the etiology and immunopathogenesis
This approach provides several substantial advantages over currently available animal model systems for in vivo study of immunopathogenesis
, prevention, and therapy of leishmaniasis.
of Chlamydia trachomatis infections in women.
New concepts in the immunopathogenesis
of multiple sclerosis.
As Feldmann and Maini (5) described in a recent and detailed paper,5 therapeutic targeting of specific aspects of the immune response in RA followed a decade or more of laboratory work begun in the late 1980s and early 1990s that identified key signals and molecules involved in the immunopathogenesis
Many food allergens have been characterized at the molecular level, which has contributed to our increased understanding of the immunopathogenesis
of many allergic disorders and might soon lead to novel diagnostic and immunotherapeutic approaches.
Emerging concepts in the immunopathogenesis
Also discussed by the volume's 18 chapters are neuromuscular junction physiology and pathophysiology; acetylcholine receptor structure; immunopathogenesis
of myasthenia gravis; ocular myasthenia; thymona-associated paraneoplastic myasthenia gravis; electrodiagnosis of neuromuscular junction disorders; autoantibody testing in the diagnosis and management of autoimmune disorders of neuromuscular transmission and related diseases; treatment of myasthenia gravis; neurocritical care of myasthenic crisis; thymectomy for non-thyomatous myasthenia gravis; Lambert-Eaton syndrome; acquired neuromyotonia; congenital myasthenic syndromes; toxic neuromuscular transmission disorders; and the impact of myasthenia gravis on mood, cognitive function, and quality of life.
A role for Th1 and Th2 cells in the immunopathogenesis
of atopic derma titis.
