Reaction Patterns of the Lymph Node: Part 1 Cell Types and Functions

Overview

The functional processes in the lymph nodes are comprehensively presented in this volume. Particular consideration is given to their immune reactions, the macrophages and plasmocytoid T-cells (plasmocytoid monocytes). All modern methods of immunocyhemistry and electron microscopy, particularly the recent progress in immunoelectron microscopic investigation, are included. The chapters cover all aspects of the subject, so that insight into the newest findings about the lymph nodes and their interactions is given. ...

Overview

The functional processes in the lymph nodes are comprehensively presented in this volume. Particular consideration is given to their immune reactions, the macrophages and plasmocytoid T-cells (plasmocytoid monocytes). All modern methods of immunocyhemistry and electron microscopy, particularly the recent progress in immunoelectron microscopic investigation, are included. The chapters cover all aspects of the subject, so that insight into the newest findings about the lymph nodes and their interactions is given. Special chapters cover lymphocyte circulation, including the structure of the wall of the high endothelial postcapillary venules and the transendothelial pathways of the lymphocytes. One contribution deals with lymph node histopathology in nude rat lymph nodes and shows that many cellular functions proceed normally without the usually dominating T-cell reaction. Two special chapters deal with the macrophages in different compartments; here the major function of dendritic cells is illustrated.
