The four prime health messages of this chapter can therefore help to prevent the deaths of over three million children and 200,000 women each year.< Less
A hypothesis that proposes that many SNPs that are markers of schizophrenia are required for immune response and that these SNPs may be rapidly accumulated as part of one or more immune response reactions. Check preview function for full copy. By John Neville

It is hypothesized that many SNPs that are markers of schizophrenia could support the over and/or under-expression of pathways required for immune response, for example pathways leading to polyamines... More > and nitric oxide, and that these SNPs may be rapidly acquired by the schizophrenic patient or may have been rapidly acquired by one or more of their ancestors as part of one or more immune response reactions. The over-expression of a gene resulting from an immune response reaction may result in new SNP being acquired at that location. This mutation in turn may result in the over-expression of genes controlling enzymes on the same pathway. Where there is over-expression of further genes then further SNPs may be acquired as a result at the location of these over-expressed genes. In effect a cascade reaction results.< Less

The “People Power” Health Superbook: Book 10. Immune System Diseases By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $3.30
Very simply, all the cells in the bodily organism have a special marker in them which the immune system knows are its own but everything else in the body without this special marker is considered a... More > foreign agent, an enemy which the immune system tries to destroy in order to win this war against toxins and continue to thrive. When the immune system senses large amounts of foreign invaders, it triggers an immune response by producing antibodies which go out, fight these invaders (antigens) and try to destroy them all. When the body’s immune system is weak, it gets confused and sometimes attacks its own healthy body cells because it thinks these cells are foreign invading toxic cells so the body’s immune system is destroying itself. There are a lot of diseases like this like chronic inflammation, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, alopecia areata, ankylosing spondylitis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, autoimmune skin disorders, Cushing's syndrome, scleroderma, Sjogren's syndrome, etc.< Less

Technological advances in understanding host responses to parasites and parasite manipulation of host responses: 2007 Proceedings By Euroscicon
eBook (PDF): $39.02

Parasite survival and reproduction reflects their ability to modulate the hosts’ immune systems and the ultimate development of immunity to some parasites requires the host to overcome these... More > defences. The molecules and strategies parasites and hosts use in this interplay are now being explored using a range of technologies. The information gained from these analyses will be used in the treatment of both parasitic disease and potentially other disorders, for example the treatment of anti-inflammatory disease using peptide mimetics of parasite molecules as drugs. Recent advances in parasite genome analysis, functional genomics, proteomics and cell culture have stimulated intense interest and research in this area.< Less
