Overview

Bristol-Myers Squibb/Mead Johnson Nutrition Symposia, Volume 11: Immunophysiology of the Gut represents a comprehensive and systematic coverage of the immunophysiology of the gut, compiling research that integrates the mucosal immune system and intestinal physiology.

This book discusses the immunological regulation of epithelial function, fibroblastic sheath, pathways of arachidonic acid metabolism, and gastric response to mucosal anaphylaxis. The implications for inflammatory diarrhea, role of breast milk in neonatal host defense, and milk-borne peptide growth factors in human and bovine milk are also elaborated. This publication likewise covers the immunopathologic features of celiac disease, immune responses in protein-energy malnutrition, and bacterial translocation.

This volume is suitable for experts and clinicians from the disciplines of mucosal immunology, intestinal physiology, and enteric neurophysiology.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on the 11th Annual Bristol-Myers-Squibb/Mead Johnson Symposium on Nutrition Research, held at Harvard Medical School, August 1991, this volume integrates intestinal physiology and the mucosal immune system, featuring contributions from mucosal immunologists, intestinal physiologists, and enteric neurophysiologists who describe and evaluate the significance of their research findings. The volume is divided into five sections: immunophysiology of the gut; lymphokines and mucosal immune function; endocrine effects on mucosal immune function; nutrition and mucosal host defense; and effects of nutritional factors and the microenvironment on mucosal immune function.
