Heat shock proteins (HSP) have received ample interest by immunologists over recent years. Initially they were found to be dominantly immunogenic microbial antigens. The connection with inflammation was established when it was uncovered that T cells specific for these antigens have a crucial role in the induction and regulation of experimental arthritis. Since then, the raised presence of immunity to HSPs in virtually all conditions of inflammation, including autoimmune diseases, transplant rejection and atherosclerosis, has emphasised the critical significance of immunity to HSPs in inflammatory diseases.

This book is the proceedings of an international symposium held in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, June 12-15 1996, and sponsored by Axcan Pharma, the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology and the Canadian Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. While the etiology and cure of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) remain elusive, it is safe to say that there have been exciting advances in the field since the last symposium was held two years ago. A faculty of international experts from a range of disciplines - including molecular genetics, physiology, epidemiology, pediatrics, gastroenterology and surgery - was assembled and provided updates on the most current and controversial areas. The first part of the book is devoted to a review of advances in determining the etiology of IBD with focus on mucosal inflammation and genetics. The clinical part of the book includes sessions on ileal pouches, new therapies for the treatment of Crohn's disease, controversies related to the management of ulcerative colitis, cancer risk in IBD and management of IBD in the pediatric population. This volume will be of interest to both gastroenterologists and colon and rectal surgeons, whether concerned with basic science or clinical practice.

This book provides the most up-to-date review on new mechanisms and provides exciting insights into how heat shock proteins modulate the hosts’ immune response. Written by leaders in the field of heat shock protein immunobiology, the chapters systematically and in a step-wise fashion take the reader through the fascinating sequence of events by which heat shock proteins activate immune responses and provide answers as to its biological significance to the host.

The reasons why an immune system should attack itself are far from clear. The input of the biotechnological revolution has enabled us to readdress many of the fundamental questions raised by clinical and serological associations with autoimmune disease. The ability to dissect the immune response to those infectious agents that are associated with autoimmune features, in addition to the ability to clone and sequence immune response genes, has given us a much better understanding of the complexity of `autoimmunity'. The Impact of Biotechnology on Autoimmunity, which is a collection of papers from the BIOTECH 93 symposium with the same title, is a clear, informative and easy to read summary of its theme. Since the papers have been contributed by some of the leading laboratories in the world, reading is a pleasurable and instructive experience.

Neuroscience Perspectives provides multidisciplinary reviews of topics in one of the most diverse and rapidly advancing fields in the life sciences. Cells respond to temperature elevation and other traumas by inducing a set of genes (cell stream genes) encoding cell stress (heat shock) proteins which may play important roles in cellular repair and/or protective mechanisms. This book surveys the current state of knowledge concerning the expression of heat shock genes and proteins in the nervous system following such traumatic events as hyperthermia, ischemia, and tissue wounding. The possible neuroprotective effects of the heat shock response are discussed. In addition to reviewing progress in animal model systems, this book discusses heat shock proteins such as ubiquitin in relation to human neurodegenerative diseases. Each chapter presents an overview of a specific subject area and includes current results from each authors laboratory and a viewpoint on future research directions. The book is organized in two parts: the first part deals with cell stress genes and their protein products; the second part deals with ubiquitin and the nervous system. The chapters are grouped so that each of the two sections begins with a description of the basic molecular cell biology of heat shock proteins or ubiquitin. Whether you are a new recruit to neuroscience or an established expert, look to this series for one-stop sources for the historical, physiological, pharmacological, biochemical, molecular biology and therapeutic aspects of your chosen research areas.
