Immune Mechanisms in Inflammatory Bowel Disease is a highly, concise update of the most recent advances in the immunobiology, genetics and microbiology related to Inflammatory Bowel Disease. This book broadly treats the topics that lead to understanding of the pathogenesis of this disease in an organized, systematic approach. TOC:Structure and Function of the Gut Mucosal Immune System.- Functional Aspects of the Mucosal Immune System.- Recent Progress in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Genetics.- Microbial and Dietary Factors in the Pathogenesis of Chronic, Immune-Mediated Intestinal Inflammation.- Experimental Models of Mucosal Inflammation.- Overview of Role of the Immune System in the Pathogenesis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.- The Role of the Epithelial Barrier in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.- Involvement of Dendritic Cells in the Pathogenesis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.- Alterations of T Lymphocytes in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.- The B-Cell System in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.- Alterations of Mesenchymal and Endothelial Cells in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.- Role of Mast Cells and Eosinophils in Neuroimmune Interactions Regulating Mucosal Inflammation in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.- Multiparameter Analysis of Imunogenetic Mechanisms in Clinical Diagnosis and Management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.- The Role of Probiotics and Antibiotics in Regulating Mucosal Inflammation.- From Immunogenic Mechanisms to Novel Therapeutic Approaches in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
