Immunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects

mmunoendocrinology AspectsImmunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects is published by Humana Press and edited by George S. Eisenbarth.

The book is focused on autoimmune disorders, and particularly, endocrine autoimmune diseases. With the exception of celiac disease, the environmental factors that contribute to the onset, development and the marked increase in many of these disorders remain poorly understood.

Immunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects outlines the central role of immune-endocrinologic processes in the pathogenesis of not only type 1 diabetes but in a range of other autoimmune and endocrine disorders

This fundamental and clinical field has played a prominent role in advancing the understanding of autoimmunity including creation of the first models of induced autoimmune disease, demonstration that autoimmunity can cause human pathology, and characterization of remarkable syndromes linking multiple autoimmune diseases.

Some of the book’s chapters are highlighted below:
