Eosinophil Ultrastructure: Atlas of Eosinophil Cell Biology and Pathology focuses on eosinophils and their functional roles in inflammation, host defense and normal homeostatic activities. The book explores the ultrastructure of human eosinophils, highlighting biological processes observed in normal, experimental and pathological conditions. Created to fill a void in the eosinophil literature, this book has an extensive array of electron microscopic images that illustrate the diversity of eosinophil morphology. While the atlas is primarily a learning and teaching tool, it also acts as a helpful resource for researchers who want to identify distinguishing features and structural changes that arise during studies of human eosinophils. Helps readers understand human eosinophils in studies focused on structural biology, cellular immunology, innate and adaptive immunity, immune responses to pathogens, immunopathology and inflammatory responses Provides a core of essential knowledge to identify both immature and mature eosinophils Comprises a representative compilation of the eosinophil ultrastructure during biological processes, such as activation and degranulation, observed mostly in experimental conditions Highlights eosinophil biological processes found in vivo during human diseases, thus providing a link between basic science and clinical aspects Helps identify distinguishing features and structural changes that arise during studies of human eosinophils in culture
Written and edited by leaders in the field, Eosinophils in Health and Disease provides immunology researchers and students with a comprehensive overview of current thought and cutting-edge eosinophil research, providing chapters on basic science, disease-specific issues, therapeutics, models for study and areas of emerging importance. Despite an explosion of discovery in this area over the last decade, this is the only up-to-date resource on eosinophils and eosinophilia exists. This full-color volume provides an essential collection of world class information that is a must-have for any immunologist’s workbench or bookshelf. The only updated, comprehensive source of information on eosinophils on the market Written by over 80 leaders in the field Holistic view of the subject, including basic science, disease-specific chapters, therapeutic options and emerging areas of research
