The Innate Immune Response to Noninfectious Stressors: Human and Animal Models
by Massimo Amadori
The Innate Immune Response to Non-infectious Stressors: Human and Animal Models highlights fundamental mechanisms of stress response and important findings on how the immune system is affected, and in turn affects such a response. In addition, this book covers the crucial link between stress response and energy metabolism, prompts a re-appraisal of some crucial issues, and helps to define research priorities in this fascinating, somehow elusive field of investigation.
- Provides insights into the fundamental homeostatic processes vis-à-vis stressors to help in investigation
- Illustrates the depicted tenets and how to offset them against established models of response to physical and psychotic stressors in both animals and humans
- Covers the crucial issue of the immune response to endocrine disruptors
- Includes immunological parameters as reporter system of environmental adaptation
- Provides many illustrative examples to foster reader understanding
