The Emerging Role of Neuro-Immune Synapses and the Immunological Homunculus in the Context of the Systematic Lymphoid Organs Innervation

The Emerging Role of Neuro-Immune Synapses and the Immunological Homunculus in the Context of the Systematic Lymphoid Organs Innervation

Evolving concept By Clemens Wülfing, Fenja Amrei Schuran, Inga Hölge, Julia Urban, Jasmin Oehlmann and Hauke Simon Günther Nearly all body tissues are connected to the central nervous system through the axonal terminals of neurons. But with regard to lymphoid organs, this direct innervation, its extent and significance, as well as the role of afferent […]

Neuro-Endocrine Basis of Immune Modulation: in Response to Stress and Relaxation

The Neuro-Endocrine Basis of Immune Modulation is authored by Nazmul Haque, Mahbub E Sobhani and Asif Ahmed, and published by VDM Verlag Dr. Müller. Traditional medical science has kept the mind separate from the body. In particular, neurosciences and immunology developed independently for many years, and thus, the question of how the brain communicates with […]

Are children with growth hormone (GH) deficiency more susceptible to pneumococcal disease?

Are children with growth hormone (GH) deficiency more susceptible to pneumococcal disease?

GIGA-I3 Immunoendocrinology Laboratory (ULiège) recently delivered compelling results from fundamental research on mouse models. Vincent Geenen’s Immunoendocrinology Laboratory at GIGA-I3 has obtained important data that could have an impact on the monitoring of children with growth hormone (GH) deficiency. These results have just been published in two successive publications, Frontiers in Endocrinology(1) and Frontiers in […]

Immunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects

Immunoendocrinology: 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. […]

Neural-Immune Interactions in Brain Function and Alcohol Related Disorders

Neural-Immune Interactions in Brain Function and Alcohol Related Disorders presents the recent advances in neuro-immune and alcohol research, relevant to brain function, behavior and alcohol use disorders.  Recent up-to-date and cutting edge development is provided by experts in the field of neuroendocrine-immunology and alcohol use disorders. Neuroendocrine-immunology and neural-immune interactions offer a new framework for […]

The Neuroendocrine Immune Network

The Neuroendocrine Immune Network is published by CRC Press and edited by Serem Freier, German, British and Israeli pediatrician and medical educator. The book’s major focus is neuroendocrine-immunology or the interactions between the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. It addresses the anatomical basis of these interactions, including the innervation of lymphoid tissues and mast cells, […]
