Granulocytes are a category of white blood cells characterised by the presence of granules in their cytoplasm. This book examines the characteristics of eosinophil granulocytes, its biological functions, its role in inflammation and its clinical significance in children. This book also reviews the role of granulocytes on the onset of tissue-destructive diseases when exposed to stress. In addition to the cases of disease, some physiological phenomena are also responsible for the stress-induced granulocytosis. Thus this book will also expands upon the role of granulocytes associated with various diseases and some physiological responses. Other topics discussed in this book include the role of basophil, the minute group of granulocyte, in tropical infections and in immune regulations; polymorphonuclear neutrophilic granulocytes (neutrophils), which are the most dangerous cells in the organism and their role in transient states of autoimmunity, and the effects of nucleoli change during differentiation and maturation of granulocytes.

In recent years, progress in fish biology has advanced at an unprecedented rate and has led to many breakthroughs in the field. This book provides a wealth of information on the strategies that fish adopt with respect to waters with markedly different physical and chemical characteristics. It shows how their physiology, behaviour and lifestyles are adapted to exploit particular niches and gives comprehensive insight into fish life under extreme conditions. The readers are introduced to the ways in which fish exemplify many phenomena of general biological interest - the existence of competitors, chaos, and predator-prey interaction. Fish pathology as well as the components of the immune system are addressed. In this book, original and at times controversial views are presented, areas which have so far received inadequate attention are highlighted and avenues for further research are suggested.

Haschek and Rousseaux's Handbook of Toxicologic Pathology is a key reference on the integration of structure and functional changes in tissues associated with the response to pharmaceuticals, chemicals and biologics. The 3e has been expanded by a full volume, and covers aspects of safety assessment not discussed in the 2e. Completely revised with many new chapters, it remains the most authoritative reference on toxicologic pathology for scientists and researchers studying and making decisions on drugs, biologics, medical devices and other chemicals, including agrochemicals and environmental contaminants. New topics include safety assessment, the drug life cycle, risk assessment, communication and management, carcinogenicity assessment, pharmacology and pharmacokinetics, biomarkers in toxicologic pathology, quality assurance, peer review, agrochemicals, nanotechnology, food and toxicologic pathology, the environment and toxicologic pathology and more. Provides new chapters and in-depth discussion of timely topics in the area of toxicologic pathology and broadens the scope of the audience to include toxicologists and pathologists working in a variety of settings Offers high-quality and trusted content in a multi-contributed work written by leading international authorities in all areas of toxicologic pathology Features hundreds of full color images in both the print and electronic versions of the book to highlight difficult concepts with clear illustrations

Structured to be a companion to the recently published Handbook of Transfusion Medicine, the Handbook of Pediatric Transfusion Medicine is dedicated to pediatric hematology-oncology and transfusion medicine, a field which remains ambiguous and which has generated few comprehensive texts. This book stands alone as one of the few texts that addresses transfusion issues specific to pediatric medicine. Written in an eminently readable style, this authoritative handbook is a requirement for any pediatric physician or caregiver. Neonatal and fetal immune response and in utero development issues Blood compatability and pre-transfusion testing issues specific to pediatric and neonatal transfusion Therapeutic apheresis including red blood cell exchange and prophylactic chronic erythrocytapheresis for sickle cell patients Also includes a section that concentrates on the consent, quality and legal issues of blood transfusion and donation
