Contents Notes
Overview of the Immune Response -- Role of Cytokines -- Cytokine Receptors and Signaling -- Immunosuppressive Agents -- Monoclonal Antibodies as Therapeutic Agents -- Allergic Disease -- Tissue Transplantation -- Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome -- Regulatory T Cells and Disease State -- Gene Therapy. Immunopharmacology focuses on the mechanism of action of pharmacologic agents that regulate immune response and the physiologic, pathologic, and pharmacologic role of the products of immune response. Topics include cytokines and their receptors, immunosuppressive drugs, monoclonal antibodies, mechanisms and immunotherapy of allergic disease, clinical transplantation, acquired immune deficiency disease, regulatory T cells, and gene therapy. The book provides most basic principles of immunopharmacology by equally emphasizing the disciplines of immunology and pharmacology, which will be a very valuable tool for both the professional as well as graduate students.
