The aim of this publication is to present the up-to-date views of the many eminent immunologists who contributed to the scientific program of the 5th European Immunology Meeting held in Istanbul in June 1982. Recent Advances in Immunology is intended for immunol ogists both in the basic sciences and in clinical medicine. It provides under one cover an assemblage of information about funda mental problems in immunology and clinical applications. The book opens with Prof. E. A. Kabat's review of the problems in understanding the structural basis of antibody complementarity. The succeeding four papers deal with the role of macrophages in the various stages of immune phenomena. The first of the two articles on T cells reports a product necessary for suppressor activity and the second describes an analysis of precursors of cytotoxic T lym phocytes. The articles dealing with immunogenetics start with the description of new loci in HLA by Prof. J. J. van Rood and co-workers followed by a paper describing the molecular cloning of H-2 class I genes. Prof. P. J. Lachmann begins the discussion on the genetics of the complement system. There are three stimulating articles on the chemistry and genetics of the complement components and their asso ciations with disease. After a review of artificial antigens and synthetic vaccines, papers on immunomodulation describe strategies for improving immunogenicity, immunomodulation in tumor systems and by xenobiotics.

The fundamental science and the latest developments in carbohydrate-based vaccines The relatively new field of glycoimmunology has emerged from the marriage of glycobiology and immunology, in recognition of the important role carbohydrates play as antigenic determinants. Carbohydrate-Based Vaccines and Immunotherapies comprehensively reviews the state of this exciting field, offering a single source for both the fundamental science and the latest developments. With contributions by leading experts, this resource covers the design, synthesis, evaluation, and applications of various carbohydrate-based vaccines, including polysaccharides, neoglycoproteins, and neoglycolipids. The text approaches vaccine design from a chemical and molecular focus, staying in line with current advances. Key topics covered by Carbohydrate-Based Vaccines and Immunotherapies include: Recent developments towards clinically useful vaccines against bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi Using adjuvants to improve immunogenicity and/or immunological properties of vaccines Choosing and designing proper adjuvants for specific targets Abnormal carbohydrates expressed by tumors Carbohydrate-based therapeutic cancer vaccines or cancer immunotherapy Clinical trials results for synthetic cancer vaccines Glycoengineering of cell surface carborhydrates and its anticancer applications Using cell surface carbohydrates for disease diagnosis A single, convenient source of state-of-the-art information from leading authorities in the field, Carbohydrate-Based Vaccines and Immunotherapies is an essential reference for organic chemists and biochemists, academic researchers, and other students and professionals involved in vaccine design.

The Vaccine Book provides comprehensive information on the current and future world of vaccines. It reveals the scientific opportunities and potential impact of vaccines, including economic and ethical challenges, problems encountered when producing vaccines, how clinical vaccine trials are designed, and how to introduce vaccines into widespread use. Although vaccines are now available for many diseases, there are still challenges ahead for major diseases such as AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. The Vaccine Book is designed for students, researchers, public health officials, and all others interested in increasing their understanding of vaccines. Topics unique to this book: * Ethics * Economics * Diseases that could be prevented * Clinical trial designs * Ideas about the future of vaccines * Challenges facing research scientists in the vaccine area * Burden of vaccine-preventable illness and the impact of vaccines * Scientific obstacles to be overcome by existing and new vaccines * Basic mechanisms of host immunity and pathogen interaction with host tissues * New approaches to future vaccines against challenging diseases * Real and perceived safety issues which dominate vaccine development and vaccination policies * Microbial pathogenesis as a basis for vaccine design * Planning vaccine trials * Introducing new vaccines into the healthcare system * Future challenges for vaccines and immunizations

The immunology of mucosal surfaces is one of the most exciting and relevant areas of medical veterinary and dental research since it applies basic research to tissues in volved in everyday defence against microbes and against environmental and food antigens. This book is based on the contributions presented at the International Con gress of Mucosal Immunology, held in London in July 1989 and organised by the Mu cosal Immunology Affinity Group of the British Society for Immunology. The meet ing was attended by over 500 delegates from 27 countries, including virtually all of the leading investigators in the field. The contents give comprehensive and up-to date information on such topics as antigen presentation and processing in the gut, mucosal vaccines in man and animals, HIV infection in the gut, the role of yo T cells in the gut epithelium, recent advances in inflammatory bowel disease and coeliac dis ease, the role of cytokines in the regulation of the IgA response, mucosal mast cells and cell migration. The contributions reflect the rapid pace of research in mucosal immunology, and the great strides which are taking place in the understanding of the immunology, molecular biology and biochemistry of host response at mucosal sur faces.
