Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Widespread Pain: From Construction to Relevant Recognition

The 2018, 1st edition book Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Widespread Pain: From Construction to Relevant Recognition is authored by Winfried Haüser and Serge Perrot and published by IASP. Fibromyalgia is a condition that mostly affects women and is characterized by chronic widespread pain, paresthesias, allodynia, fatigue, sleep difficulties and cognitive impairment. “In fact, the name ‘fibromyalgia’ […]

Cytokines: From Basic Mechanisms of Cellular Control to New Therapeutics

Cytokines: From Basic Mechanisms of Cellular Control to New Therapeutics is a new book edited by Robert Schreiber and Warren Leonard and published by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press. According to Joost Oppenheim the definition of cytokines can be broadly based on their function as intercellular signals. Thus, cytokines (e.g., interleukins and interferons) are small […]

The Cytokines of the Immune System: The Role of Cytokines in Disease Related to Immune Response

The cytokines of the immune system: The role of cytokines in disease related to immune response describes the role and functions of cytokines and links them to physiology and pathology. The Cytokines of the Immune System is authored by Zlatko Dembic and published by Academic Press. Homeostasis within the immune system is largely dependent on […]

Cytokines, Stress, and Depression (reprint of the 1st ed)

Cytokines, Stress, and Depression (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology) is devoted to the establishment of a link between cytokines and clinical depression. Cytokines, Stress, and Depression is published by Springer and edited by Robert Dantzer, Emmanuelle E. Wollmann and Raz Yirmiya. It is based on the proceedings of a meeting that took place in […]

Glucocorticoid Signaling: From Molecules to Mice to Man

Glucocorticoid Signaling: From Molecules to Mice to Man (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology) is published by Springer and edited by Jen-Chywan Wang and Charles Harris. Glucocorticoids, the steroid hormones secreted from the adrenal cortex zona fasciculate play numerous important roles in the maintenance of internal homeostasis by influencing activities of virtually all organs and […]

Sex Hormones and Immunity to Infection

Sex Hormones and Immunity to Infection, edited by Sabra L. Klein and Craig Roberts and published by Springer, critically reviews the evolutionary origin and the functional mechanisms responsible for sexual dimorphism in response to infection. Recent research suggests that sex hormones regulate immune responses in vivo. Thus, estrogens and testosterone regulate humoral immune responses i.e. […]

The Wisdom of the Body

The Wisdom of the Body, the revised and enlarged edition was published by W. W. Norton & Company (April 17, 1963, shown on the left) but the first, original version was published in 1932, once again by W.W. Norton & Company (shown below, on the right). This classic medical book was written by Walter Cannon, […]

Neuroimmune Pharmacology 2nd Edition

Neuroimmune pharmacology is a relatively young discipline, however well-grounded on interdisciplinary basic and translational research in pharmacology, immunology and neuroscience, aiming at the therapeutic exploitation of the rapidly growing knowledge about physiology and pathology of nervous system-immune system interconnections. The Society on Neuroimmune Pharmacology was founded in1993, while the first issue of the Journal of […]

Rethinking Homeostasis: Allostatic Regulation in Physiology and Pathophysiology

Rethinking Homeostasis: Allostatic Regulation in Physiology and Pathophysiology is published by A Bradford Book and authored by Jay Schulkin. Homeostasis as a concept and term was introduced by the American physiologist WalterCannon and refers to the stability of the inner world, or the various bodily states that make up the internal environment. Examples include for […]
