Overview

Dietary Components and Immune Function focuses on immune modulation, immune mediated disease resistance, immune changes due to AIDS, immune modulated cancer therapy, and autoimmune diseases as modified by dietary supplement, bioactive foods and supplements. The potential value of such approaches in maintaining wellness and preventing disease are addressed by examining their effects in vitro and in vivo on innate and adaptive immune responses. Emerging fields of science and important discoveries relating to early stages of new nutriceuticals in cancer prevention, prior to clinical trials are also covered.
This volume represents a single source of material related to nutriceuticals and their constituents as they relate to cancer therapy and prevention. As such the book will be essential reading for nutritionists, pharmacologists, health care professionals, research scientists, cancer workers, pathologists, molecular or cellular biochemists, physicians, general practitioners as well as those interested in diet and nutrition in disease resistance via immune regulation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“Dietary modulation of immune modulation, immune mediated disease resistance, immune changes due to AIDS, immune modulated cancer therapy, and autoimmune diseases is addressed in detail in this unique new book showing its potential value in maintaining wellness and preventing disease. Nutriceuticals and their components relate to both the therapy and prevention of malignancies. Comprehensive therapists will benefit from broad perspectives explored in this book while nutritionists, pharmacologists, health care professionals, research scientists, cancer workers, pathologists, and biochemists will find the details important.” (William H. Wehrmacher and Harry Messmore, Comprehensive Therapy, 2011)

“This book was aimed to provide accessibility of information to health professionals (medical specialists) medical practice, nursing, pharmacy, students and nutrition related allied health professionals. In my opinion, this book is highly appropriate for nutritional immunologists who are actively researching in this field … . On a more positive note, the aim to provide thorough information that allows the reader to decide for themselves the value of specific nutrients, their usage, and risks for the treatment of immune dysfunction, is clearly achieved.” (Andrew Foey, Immunology News, February, 2011)
