Autoimmune bullous diseases are associated with autoimmunity against structural components maintaining . Pemphigus diseases are characterized by autoantibodies against the intercellular junctions and intraepithelial blisters.

Autoimmune bullous diseases are associated with autoimmunity against structural components maintaining cell-cell and cell matrix adhesion in the skin and mucous membranes. In pemphigoid diseases and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, sub-epidermal blistering is associated with autoantibodies targeting proteins of the hemidesmosomal anchoring complex. The autoantigens in autoimmune blistering diseases have been extensively characterized over the past three decades.

PhDs and medical practitioners, this book focuses on the importance of immunological concepts in disease states.

The ways in which we can better understand cancer, HIV, and other autoimmune diseases through clinical immunology are of great interest to all scientists, from students to post-graduate practitioners. Designed as an introduction to science students (MD, MD–PhD, PhD) as well as to more advanced PhDs and medical practitioners, this book focuses on the importance of immunological concepts in disease states. Essential Clinical Immunology begins with the basic concepts and then details the immuno-logical aspects of various disease states involving major organs of the body.

It is from such concepts that the molecular immunopathology of the future is likely to develop. Immunopathology in lymphatic filariasis is associated with the presence of an endosymbiotic, Rickettsia-like bacteria called Wolbachia. View chapter Purchase book. Wolbachia are known to stimulate immune cells through TLR2 and TLR4 and release proinflammatory cytokines, as well as vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs), which might contribute to lymphatic pathology. 23 Wolbachia-TLR4 interaction has also been shown to be the major mechanism of corneal inflammation in onchocerciasis, and a TLR signaling molecule, IL-1 receptor associated kinase-2.

In clinical medicine, autoimmunity and autoimmune disease are quite different (Table 1). Autoimmunity, . While the precise cellular and molecular mechanisms of the hormonal contribution to disease are not clear, estrogen is implicated in disease pathophysiology. the presence of serum autoantibodies, can be totally asymptomatic. Autoimmunity is practically physiologic in the most senior of our citizens. Thirty to fifty percent of octogenarians may have serum rheumatoid factor or antinuclear antibodies without any disease associated with those autoantibodies in younger individuals.

The development of powerful techniques of genetic engineering has made available methods to test many of the hypotheses relating to self-nonself discrimination and autoimmunity. This volume offers an account of the latest developments in molecular autoimmunity research with clinical relevance. The contributors cover a broad range of topics from pathogenesis in autoimmune diseases, including the role of autoantibodies, idiotypes and cytokines, to autoimmunity in Sjogren's syndrome, endocrine disease, spondyloarthropathies and HIV infection.
