BooknewsBased 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.
