Description

"The Innate Immune System: Strategies for Disease Control" is the result of proceedings the Uehara Memorial Foundation Symposium held in Tokyo, Japan. The latest research on molecular events in innate immunity and the interface between innate and acquired immunity was discussed at the symposium. The book contains 30 papers contributed by prominent investigators in the field of innate immunology, and is divided into 3 themes; Receptor signalling and function in innate immune responses; Interface between innate and acquired immunity and Manipulation of the innate immune system and new strategies for disease control. It was the explicit aim of the symposium to increase understanding in these fields, and further aid the development of novel strategies for disease control in the 21st Century. "The Innate Immune System: Strategies for Disease Control" will be of particular interest to immunologists, medical students, biomedical researchers and microbiologists alike.
