Human Immunology publishes full-length, original, hypothesis-driven basic and clinical research articles as well as brief communications, reviews and editorials covering immunogenetics, transplantation immunology, autoimmunity, and immunity to infectious diseases in also publishes short population reports, which are tied to the database, describing allele. Immunology is a branch of biology that covers the study of immune systems in all organisms. Immunology charts, measures, and contextualizes the physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and diseases; malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders (such as autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency, and transplant rejection); and the.

Giving low-doses of chemotherapy, such as fludarabine phosphate and cyclophosphamide, before a donor bone marrow transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells (stem cells) and cancer cells. It may also stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's bone marrow cells.

A potentially safer, more effective chemotherapy treatment for patients with blood-related cancers, such as leukemia, who need a particular bone marrow A potentially safer, more effective chemotherapy treatment for patients with blood-related cancers, such as leukemia, who need a particular bone marrow transplant procedure is under study at the University of Arizona Health Sciences.

Edited by Fritz H. Bach, M.D., and Hugh Auchincloss, Jr., M.D. In recent years, transplantation immunology has evolved as a distinct field founded on the recognition that rejection of a transplanted organ or tissue is mediated by immune mechanisms in the host responding to antigens in the donor tissue.5/5(1).

(Geneva, Switzerland, 6–7 October ). In organ transplantation, the principal target of the immune response to the graft are the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules expressed on the surface of donor cells (allo-MHC); this feature is a form of adaptive immunity. The immunobiology of solid transplantation.

Historically the focus of transplant immunology has mainly relied on targeting the mechanisms of specific (adaptive) immunity. The immune responses to transplanted organs and to cancer cells are both important medical issues. With the use of tissue typing and anti-rejection drugs, transplantation of organs and the control of the anti-transplant immune response have made huge strides in the past 50 years.

This two-volume masterwork provides expert, well-illustrated information on everything from basic science and pathophysiology to clinical best practices. Addressing current issues such as new therapies for cardiorenal. The transplantation of tissues to replace diseased organs is now an important medical therapy.

In most cases, adaptive immune responses to the grafted tissues are the major impediment to successful transplantation. Rejection is caused by immune responses to alloantigens on the graft, which are proteins that vary from individual to individual within a species, and are thus perceived as foreign.

INTRODUCTION. Cancer in pregnancy is on the rise [].Melanoma is the most common malignancy encountered during pregnancy and dismal outcomes are recognised to occur in patients who are pregnant at time of diagnosis [1–3].An increased risk of recurrence of melanoma during pregnancy has been reported [].There are no standard guidelines of management in these patients and young.

Abstract. There has been a relentless ever-increasing interest in immunology as providing answers to many problems in medical science. Indeed, in recent years much exciting progress has been made in understanding the complex fetomaternal immunological interactions which occur normally in pregnancy and allow the genetically disparate fetus the privilege of evading transplant rejection reactions.
