Infection and Autoimmunity, 2nd edition

Noel R. Rose, Yehuda Shoenfeld

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

"This book intends to encompass the different mechanisms involved in the infection-autoimmunity association/induction. In addition to molecular mimicry one will find mechanisms such as polyclonal activation, tissue damage and the adjuvant effect of the inflammatory process itself. Readers of this book will gain a deeper insight into these mechanisms and the increasingly important etiological aspects of autoimmunity." "Special attention will be given to HSPs and to transgenic mouse models to better understand infection-induced autoimmunity. Due to the fact that vaccines may contain infectious antigens, the controversial issue of vaccine-autoimmunity relationship is critically reviewed."--BOOK JACKET.
