Book Description :

Autoimmune diseases are conditions where the immune system attacks the body organs instead of foreign invaders. This book deals with the various mechanisms by which infectious agents can trigger autoimmunity such as molecular mimicry and polyclonal activation. An overview is given with regard to bacteria, viruses, and parasites associated with autoimmunity, and a summary is given on classical autoimmune diseases and the infecting agents that can induce them. Includes completely updated and new chapters Brings the reader up to date and allows easy access to individual topics in one place Identifies infectious agents as pathogenic or protective in many autoimmune diseases

Book Description :

In light of the discovery of Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants, or ASIA, Vaccines and Autoimmunity explores the role of adjuvants – specifically aluminum in different vaccines – and how they can induce diverse autoimmune clinical manifestations in genetically prone individuals. Vaccines and Autoimmunity is divided into three sections; the first contextualizes the role of adjuvants in the framework of autoimmunity, covering the mechanism of action of adjuvants, experimental models of adjuvant induced autoimmune diseases, infections as adjuvants, the Gulf War Syndrome, sick-building syndrome (SBS), safe vaccines, toll-like receptors, TLRS in vaccines, pesticides as adjuvants, oil as adjuvant, mercury, aluminum and autoimmunity. The following section reviews literature on vaccines that have induced autoimmune conditions such as MMR and HBV, among others. The final section covers diseases in which vaccines were known to be the solicitor – for instance, systemic lupus erythematosus – and whether it can be induced by vaccines for MMR, HBV, HCV, and others. Edited by leaders in the field, Vaccines and Autoimmunity is an invaluable resource for advanced students and researchers working in pathogenic and epidemiological studies.

Book Description :

The Mosaic of Autoimmunity: The Novel Factors of Autoimmune Diseases describes the multifactorial origin and diversity of expression of autoimmune diseases in humans. The term implies that different combinations of factors in autoimmunity produce varying and unique clinical pictures in a wide spectrum of autoimmune diseases. Most of the factors involved in autoimmunity can be categorized into four groups: genetic, immune defects, hormonal and environmental factors. In this book, the environmental factors are reviewed, including infectious agents, vaccines as triggers of autoimmunity, smoking and its relationship with rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel diseases. An entirely new syndrome, the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), is also included, along with other diseases that are now recognized as having an autoimmune etiopathogenesis. Highlights the concept of the mosaic of autoimmune manifestations Includes new visions on unsuspected molecules Provides updated knowledge to physicians helping patients with autoimmune diseases Presents thorough, up-to-date information on specific diseases, along with clinical applications

ARTHRITIS and AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE: THE INFECTION CONNECTION Finding and Treating the Many Causes of Chronic Fatigue and Inflammation Third Updated, Revised, and Expanded Edition of "Rheumatoid Arthritis: The Infection Connection" Appendix: Physician's Protocol for Treating Rheumatic Disease by Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O. (mercola.com) Appendix: Treatment for Chronic Illnesses and Autoimmune Diseases by Dr. Garth Nicolson (immed.org) 2013 Eric Hoffer Award finalist: health category. A professional health researcher, scientist, systems engineer, and former Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) sufferer presents proven benign treatments for symptoms associated with autoimmune conditions. In This Book You Will Discover: » How microorganisms cause autoimmune diseases like RA: bacteria, mycoplasmas, viruses, molds, spirochetes, fungi, and more; » Their role in other illnesses characterized by Inflammation and Chronic Fatigue such as Arthritis, MS, Lyme Disease, Diabetes, Autism, COPD, and gut disorders; » How slow-growing persistent infections lead to premature aging and Alzheimer's; » Ways to suppress these pathogens and destroy the toxins they produce; » How to control allergies that trigger histamine reactions; » Ways suggested by clinicians to strengthen the immune system using diet and other natural, non-toxic methods; » Pointers to our ongoing medical research on our website and to other Internet sites for resources, support groups, and study citations. » Persistent infections caused by microbes that invade epithelial and immune cells, causing or exacerbating many rheumatic and so-called autoimmune conditions and diseases. In 2002 there were 59 recognized autoimmune diseases. A decade later the list numbered 109, with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and COPD recently added. The list is growing. Inflammatory autoimmune diseases are caused and/or complicated by persistent, shape-changing microbes, toxins, vaccines, and inadequate nutrition. A few examples are: Allergies (food and environmental); ALS (Lou Gherig's Disease); Alzheimer's; Autoimmune and rheumatic conditions; Autism/ASD; Arthritis (all forms-rheumatoid, osteoarthritis, psoriatic, reactive, septic, Ankylosing Spondylitis, juvenile RA, gout, and many more): Carpal Tunnel; Bursitis (and tendonitis); CFS/CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome); Fibromyalgia (including backache and muscle pain); Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD); Gulf War Illness; Gut imbalance (many forms-diabetes, diverticulitis, dysbiosis, IBS, colitis, leaky gut, Crohn's disease, ulcers); Heart and circulatory conditions (atherosclerosis); Hepatitis; Lupus; Lyme Disease; Malaria; Meningitis; Multiple Sclerosis; Psychiatric disorders (bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, dementia); encephalitis; Respiratory Tract (asthma, bronchitis, COPD); Sarcoidosis; Scleroderma; sleep disorders; thyroid diseases; Metabolic Syndrome; Tuberculosis; Urinary Tract illness (cystitis, prostatitis). Nutrition, antibiotics, probiotics, and immune system-managing drugs can be used in combination to control allergies and inflammation. » Dr Mercola's nutrition-based regimen and Dr. Brown's low-dose, long-term tetracycline antibiotic protocol is described in detail, with updates since the prior edition. » Web pointers are provided to descriptions of other successful, multi-antibiotic, and nutritional protocols. » This book provides the latest information on alternative medical treatments that supplement conventional treatments for controlling and eliminating chronic infections.

Book Description :

The understanding of B cell biology has increased and expanded enormously in the last three decades. It is now known that B cells, in addition to just differentiating into antibody-secreting cells, serve many other vital functions. For example, their roles as antigen-presenting cells and cytokine-producing cells as well as effector cells and regulatory cells are well appreciated now. Indeed, the pathologic role of B cells in many autoimmune disorders may be largely autoantibody-independent. Today, the B cell is of considerable interest not only to immunologists but also to mainstream clinicians and scientists. The current volume covers the latest information on the functions of B cells in normal and disease states, and their therapeutic antagonism. Chapters cover cutting-edge topics from the basic to the clinical, including B cells in infection and autoimmunity, CD19-CD21 signal transduction complex, marginal zone B cell physiology and disease, B cell growth and differentiation, their role in rheumatoid arthritis, SLE treatment, the BAFF/APRIL system and B lymphocyte malignancies. This book is recommended reading for cellular and molecular immunologists as well as for rheumatologists, hematologists and clinical immunologists, and all those interested in human diseases in which B cells play an important contributory role.

Book Description :

One of the most devastating of illnesses, schizophrenia remains something of a mystery for scientists and psychiatrists trying to pinpoint its causes, understand its effects, and find a cure. Although we know that schizophrenia is an inherited disorder, new clues point to the probability that genes are only partly responsible for the disease. A growing body of evidence suggests that schizophrenia is often the result of environmental factors combined with a genetic predisposition. In Prenatal Exposures in Schizophrenia, a group of distinguished scientists considers a range of epigenetic elements thought to interact with abnormal genes to produce the onset of illness. The authors pay particular attention to the evidence implicating obstetric complications, prenatal infection, autoimmunity, and prenatal malnutrition in brain disorders. Chapters are arranged within four sections: * Schizophrenia and brain development* Prenatal infectious exposures* Prenatal nutritional exposures* Prenatal immunological exposures The book uses new findings on the effects of environment combined with genetics to shed light not only on the causes of schizophrenia, but also on preventive measures and potential cures. In recent years, evidence has emerged that early and sustained intervention with antipsychotic medication can reduce the duration and severity of schizophrenic symptoms. Now, by identifying events during pregnancy that place the fetus at risk for developing schizophrenia and taking steps to prevent them, the outlook for decreasing the morbidity and perhaps even the incidence of schizophrenia has never been more promising.
