This selection of articles from the Encyclopedia of the Eye is the first single-volume overview presenting articles on the function, biology, physiology, and pathology of the structures of the ocular periphery, as well as the related disorders and their treatment. The peripheral structures are implicated in a number of important diseases, including optic neuritis, thyroid eye disease, and strabismus. The volume offers a basic science background of these topics rather than a strictly clinical focus.

*The first single volume to integrate comparative studies into a comprehensive resource on the neuroscience of the ocular periphery

*Chapters are carefully selected from the Encyclopedia of the Eye by the world's leading vision researchers

*The best researchers in the field provide their conclusions in the context of the latest experimental results

The second edition of Immune `Response and the Eye' highlights recent insights into the `dangerous compromise' between the immune system and the eye, which protects the eye against pathogens while limiting inflammation and immune-mediated injury to ocular tissues with little or no regenerative potential. It discusses the broad spectrum of physiological, immunological, anatomical, and biochemical adaptations that conspire to closely regulate the tone and tenor of immune responses in the eye. This volume further describes immune-mediated diseases that occur when the compromise between the immune system and the eye is breached. This breakdown in immune privilege threatens the vision of millions each year. Finally, recent advances in ocular immunology are presented, which offer potential therapeutic applications in corneal and retinal transplantation and in the management of blinding autoimmune diseases of the eye. Eye researchers, ophthalmologists and immunologists will appreciate the state-of-the-art and authoritative information presented in `Immune Response and the Eye'.

Uveal Melanoma - A Model for Exploring Fundamental Cancer Biology (Hardcover): M. J. Jager, J y Niederkorn, Bruce R. Ksander Uveal Melanoma - A Model for Exploring Fundamental Cancer Biology (Hardcover)
M. J. Jager, J y Niederkorn, Bruce R. Ksander
R2,034 Discovery Miles 20 340 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Uveal melanoma is the most common intraocular malignancy in adults, yet little is known about the factors that predispose patients to develop the disease. However, the availability of several uveal melanoma cell lines has fostered novel in vitro and in vivo studies that have added to our knowledge about the immunology, genetics, and molecular biology of uveal melanoma, revealing, for instance, that that uveal melanoma and cutaneous melanoma are remarkably different diseases.
Presenting this important research into the area, Uveal Melanoma summarizes developments regarding the biology and metastasis of the disease, and provides insight into the pathobiology of this type of melanoma, as well as a discussion of the necessary expansion of treatment options - thus shedding new light on what is undoubtedly a highly significant area of study.

R3,054 Discovery Miles 30 540 Special order

This selection of articles from the "Encyclopedia of the Eye" provides a comprehensive overview of immunological features, diseases and inflammation of the eye and its support structures and organs. Rather than taking an immunological focus that is strictly suitable for clinicians, the volume offers a considerable basic science background and addresses a broad range of topics - the immune system of the eye, its various disorders, mechanisms of inflammation of the eye and visual system, treatment, wound healing mechanisms, stem cells, and more.

*The first single volume to integrate comparative studies into a comprehensive resource on the neuroscience of ocular immunology

*Chapters are carefully selected from the Encyclopedia of the Eye by the world's leading vision researchers

*The best researchers in the field provide their conclusions in the context of the latest experimental results
