Connective tissue diseases demand study because of their frequency, morbidity and mortality. They present intriguing challenges in the fields of diagnosis, management and research. Their range has now expanded enormously so that no individual can master the whole subject, particularly as this relates to their immunological basis. Immunology of Connective Tissue Diseases has been written by experts who are either clinical or basic scientists. The book presents up-to-date reviews of the immunological basis of connective tissue diseases as it impacts on diagnosis, pathogenetic concepts, disease monitoring and management. The book is aimed at physicians interested in understanding the immunological basis of these diseases, and at immunologists who are either entering this field for the first time and would like to have a convenient state-of-the-art account of its status, or who are researching in one area and would like to acquaint themselves with the developments which have taken place in others.

In this volume devoted to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and Sjögren syndrome, leading specialists from different disciplines present the latest research findings on many aspects of the diseases and describe the most recent trends in treatment, such as the “treat to target” approach. Both basic science and clinical medicine are addressed, with emphasis on the most promising clinical and laboratory-based studies. The coverage is comprehensive in scope, encompassing, for example, epidemiology, pathogenesis, autoantibodies and biomarkers, disease manifestations, involvement of different organs or systems, relationships with other disorders, biological therapy of SLE, and systemic treatment of Sjögren syndrome. Readers will find this first volume of Connective Tissue Disease to be an excellent source of information on the current understanding of, and clinical approach to, SLE and Sjögren syndrome that clearly conveys the progress made in recent years.

Immunology in Clinical Medicine is an introduction to immunology in clinical medicine, with emphasis on immunological concepts underlying disease processes. The effect of drugs known to suppress immunological processes are considered especially in relation to whether they operate by really suppressing immunological processes or whether they have other actions. Comprised of 17 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the nature of the immune response, followed by a discussion on reactionS in the tissues mediated by humoral antibodies. The reader is then introduced to reactions in the tissues caused by the cell-mediated immune response; immunological processes in infective diseases; and the concept of autoimmunity and its relation to disease. Subsequent chapters focus on the immunology of diseases such as cancer, skin diseases, connective tissue diseases, and diseases of the intestinal tract, respiratory tract, liver, and amyloidosis. The final chapter is devoted to the role of the clinical immunologist in patient care and therapy. This monograph is intended for students and practitioners of clinical medicine.

Immunological Aspects of Rheumatology

This is an exciting era in medicine and in science. Successive waves of advance in knowledge gather, break and recede uncovering fresh challenges and new opportunities. Each plays its part in eroding the tidemark of yesterday's ignorance. Many involved in the day-to-day management of patients, ill prepared and ill-equipped by the training which they received as under graduate students, find it difficult to retain contact with the advances in medical science and feel uncomfortable on the shifting sands of uncertainty upon which we now stand. Which of the new ideas is sound ? Upon which data may we rely? How may we distinguish the real from the unreal, the true from the false, recent advances from recent retreats? These are the anxieties, often either unstated or alternatively expressed in terms of an attitude of total opposition to 'all of this research rubbish' which are widespread in medical circles today. It is for these individuals who are not themselves directly involved in the immunology of rheumatic diseases but who, nevertheless, recognize the importance of this subject to their patients and, in particular, to tomorrow's patients, that this book has been written. There are two points that I believe to be of central concern. Firstly, I think it important to recognize that the intellectual basis of most of the research work being generated today is actually extremely simple.

Especially the past two decades have seen renewed interest in the vasculitides. In this volume an international expert group presents the current state of knowledge and concentrates on principles of immune modulating therapy. Drawing from their work in rheumatology, nephrology, internal medicine, connective tissue disease and clinical immunology, they present new concepts in classificiation, diagnosis and pathophysiology of the vasculitides. Evidence from experimental and clinical trials is reviewed, as well as the outlook for further research.
