Immunomodulation From a therapeutic point of view, immunomodulation refers to any process in which an immune response is altered to a desired level. Microorganisms are also capable of modulating the response of the immune system to their presence, in order to establish or consolidate an infection. Thus, immunomodulation can be beneficial or detrimental to a host. Immunomodulation encompasses all therapeutic interventions aimed at modifying the immune response. Augmentation of the immune response is desirable to prevent infection in states of immunodeficiency, to fight established infections and to fight cancer. In immunodeficiencies, treatment of the cause is most important (e.g., malnutrition, HIV). Immunomodulation 1st Edition by E.G. Coeugniet (Editor) ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important? ISBN.

The book is a useful and ideal guide for novice researchers interested in learning research methods to unravel the knot of immune responses and their activation. The role of various cytokines in mounting the protective/immune response as well as during immunomodulation is the central theme of this : Rajeev K. Tyagi. Immunomodulation is modulation (regulatory adjustment) of the immune has natural and human-induced forms, and thus the word can refer to the following: Homeostasis in the immune system, whereby the system self-regulates to adjust immune responses to adaptive rather than maladaptive levels (using regulatory T cells, cell signaling molecules, and so forth).

About this book. Introduction. On May , , a group of scientists met in Viareggio, Italy to present ideas, and exchange relevant data on current approaches on immunomodulators. Under the rubric of immunology, it is obvious that such a term as "immunomodulation" could be construed as being all encompassing. However, it is intriguing.

This book is an effort to reflect on the new advances in our understanding of the immune system, immune response activation, as well as immunomodulation, and to improve upon the presentation of. For this end, the book has dedicated chapters for i) explaining immune cells taking part in immune response to biomaterials/immune systems interface; ii) the effect of biomaterial shape, form and physicochemical properties on the response of immune system; iii) biofilm formation on implanted materials as a failure of immune system/biomaterial.
