The molecular definition of tumor antigens, costimulatory signals, and the
possibility to genetically engineer tumor cells as well as simple protocols for
efficient isolation and preparation of dendritic cells (DC) renew the interest in
tumor immunotherapy and vaccination, in particular. Engineering of tumor
cells with the gene of a particular cytokine is a way of releasing that cytokine at
the tumor site. In contrast to bolus administration, it provides a constant supply
Retroviral vectors have gained an increasing value in gene therapy because they stably deliver
therapeutic genes to the host cell genome. These therapeutic genes are supposed to rectify
consequences of inherited and acquired mutated genes in the host cell genome, or alter host
cell function to cure diseases.
This book titled "Recent Trend in Electrochemical Science and Technology" contains a selection of chapters focused on advanced methods used in the research area of electrochemical science and technologies; descriptions of electrochemical systems; processing of novel materials and mechanisms relevant for their operation. This book provides an overview on some of the recent development in electrochemical science and technology.
The initial idea that exogenous opiates can affect immune function was first floated in 1898
when Cantacuze described the effect of opium on leukocyte phagocytosis in guinea pig
model. Recently findings from several investigators (Quaglio et al., 2002; Nath et al., 2002;
Georges et al., 1999; Vallejo et al., 2004; Roy et al., 2006; Somaini et al., 2008) support the role
of opiates in suppressing a variety of immunological end points in opiate abusers.

This book introduces some basic and advanced studies on ionic liquids in the
electrochemical fi eld. Although ionic liquids are known by only a few scientists
and engineers, their applications ’ potential in future technologies is unlimited.
There are already many reports of basic and applied studies of ionic liquids
as reaction solvents, but the reaction solvent is not the only brilliant future of
the ionic liquids. Electrochemistry has become a big fi eld covering several key
ideas such as energy, environment, nanotechnology, and analysis.
2004Tuberculosis is a major health problem throughout the world causing large number of deaths,more than that from any other single infectious disease. The review attempts to summarize theinformation available on host immune response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Since the mainroute of entry of the causative agent is the respiratory route, alveolar macrophages are theimportant cell types, which combat the pathogen. Various aspects of macrophage-mycobacteriuminteractions and the role of macrophage in host response such as binding of M.
The ultimate goal of cancer research is the development of effective anticancer
therapy. During the last several decades, the discovery of oncogenes, tumor
suppressors, growth factors, signal transduction pathways has dramatically
escalated our understanding of cancer cell biology and mechanisms of cell
transformation.1-3 Hundreds of cellular proteins and pathways have been logically
considered as molecular targets in a mechanism-based approaches of anticancer drug
Yet, the progress in cancer treatment has not paralleled these dramatic achievements
in basic research.
There is a need for
development of new diagnostic tools to allow earlier detection of active disease, predict
disease progression and evaluate the response to periodontal therapy, thereby improving
the clinical management of patients with periodontal diseases. Advances in periodontal
diseases diagnostic research are moving toward methods whereby periodontal risk can be
identified and quantified by objective measures such as biomarkers.
A third of all general practice consultations are for musculoskeletal complaints. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used, and their gastrointestinal effects account for an estimated 1200 deaths per year in the UK. A hitherto unsuspected inflammatory component is now known to accompany conditions such as atherosclerosis. As understanding of the complex mechanisms underlying the inflammatory process increases, new ways of influencing it are developed, as witness therapies directed against specific cytokines, and COX-2 specific NSAIDs (COXIBs). ...
Association studies from north India probing
multiple loci across the spectrum of candidate cytokine
genes are scanty. The present study, therefore, was aimed
to bring in focus certain unexplored polymorphisms
in the context of tuberculosis susceptibility in north
Indian population. The role and importance of genetic
background in tuberculosis has now become univocal
with ethnicity playing a crucial role. Probing new loci
relating to tuberculosis susceptibility could suggest
novel approach in pharmacogenomics and therapy
to combat this pathogen.
