'In an era of heightened awareness of our immune system, the threat of pandemics, the rise of autoimmunity, and the revelatory new science that everything from heart disease to cancer, Alzheimer's to autism, and depression to diabetes is linked to disordered immune function and inflammation, The Immunotype Breakthrough is the most important guide available today to understand and optimise our immune function. It is an essential roadmap for anyone with an immune system (essentially everyone!), anyone looking to optimise their health and avoid today's modern plague - inflammation.' DR MARK HYMAN, New York Times-bestselling author of The Pegan Diet. 'The immune system has been overlooked and misunderstood for far too long. In The Immunotype Breakthrough, Dr Moday gives us a glimpse into her speciality and explains the recent research in a way that we can all understand. Best of all, she gives us action steps we can each take to prioritise our immune system to elevate our overall health.' DR WILL COLE, New York Times-bestselling author of Intuitive Fasting 'This is a must-read for anyone who has experienced the pitfalls of conventional medicine and is ready to balance their immune system for optimal health.' DR AMY MYERS, author of The Autoimmune Solution and Thyroid Connection 'A revolutionary book from one of the best immunity experts around. The Immunotype Breakthrough explains the latest science on immunity, and offers unique, customisable advice to help you balance your immune system. A must-read for anyone interested in living a long and healthy life." JASON WACHOB, Founder & Co-CEO of mindbodygreen.com To most of us, the immune system is a mysterious and complex network of cells, receptors, and messengers that we only notice when it goes awry. But our immune response, or lack of, affects nearly every aspect of our bodies and our health. Much has been made of 'boosting' immunity, but what exactly does that mean? And what if boosting isn't really what our immune systems need? In The Immunotype Breakthrough, functional medicine doctor and immunity specialist Dr Heather Moday explains that, for the most part, what our immune systems truly need is not boosting, but balancing. She identifies four distinct immunotypes, and helps you find yours: Smouldering: too much inflammation, resulting in diabetes, dementia, heart disease Misguided: an immune system which attacks your own cells and organs, causing autoimmune diseases Hyperactive: overreactive to harmless substances, causing allergies Weak: an immune system that doesn't react fast or effectively enough, causing frequent colds, flu or bronchitis Drawing on a wealth of cutting-edge research, Dr Moday explains that our immune systems are fluid and significantly influenced by our behaviours, diet, habits, and environment. By identifying your personal immunotype, and implementing Dr Moday's Immune Restoration Plan, you can make focused, individualised lifestyle changes to bring your immune system back into balance. With interactive quizzes to help readers zero in on their own specific needs, The Immunotype Breakthrough is a revolutionary programme that will lead to holistic health, vitality, and longevity for everyone.

A respected immunologist, allergist, and functional medicine doctor breaks down the latest science on immunity, offering a program to help readers identify their unique immunotype and bring their immune system into balance for optimal health and longevity. To most of us, the immune system is seemingly unknowable — it's an invisible, complex network of cells, receptors, and messengers, and there's no standard way to see if it's functioning as it should. Yet in spite of this, it affects nearly every aspect of our health, influencing (and sometimes even causing) every disease known to humanity. Much has been made about “boosting” immunity, but what exactly does that mean, and what if boosting isn't really what our immune systems need? In The Immunotype Breakthrough, Dr. Moday, explains that for the most part, what our immune systems truly need is balancing. Drawing on a wealth of cutting‑edge research and fascinating case studies, Dr. Moday explains that the immune system is fluid and significantly influenced by our behaviors, diet, habits, and environment. She identifies four primary Immunotypes—Smoldering, Weak, Hyperactive, and Misguided—that underlie the immune imbalances that commonly lead to disease, infection, allergies, chronic inflammation, and autoimmunity. By identifying your personal immunotype—where you fall on the immunity spectrum—you can intervene by making focused, individualized, natural lifestyle changes to bring your immune system back into balance. Featuring engaging and accessible science, practical and customizable takeaways, and interactive quizzes to help readers zero in on their specific needs, The Immunotype Breakthrough is a revolutionary program for creating a lifestyle and diet that will lead to immune resilience, vitality, and longevity.

Childhood acute leukemias are one of the main causes of death in children aged 1 to 14 years in some countries; and unfortunately, we have been unable to prevent it. Certainly, a good parcel of it is due to the poor understanding about its etiology. This book aims to describe the most important theories and hypothesis regarding childhood acute leukemia. Written by the most outstanding researchers in the field, this book intends to contribute to a greater understanding of the etiology of this disease. It goes beyond the simple and common analysis of risk factors, which hardly allows us to draw definite conclusions. By addressing the etiology of the disease, discussing from molecular biology until epidemiology and clinical manifestations, this book will guide present and future approaches, contributing for a better clinical management of leukemia in children. The knowledge regarding etiology is a crucial step for a better evaluation, prevention and treatment of a disease. Thus, this book finally intends to provide such knowledge, allowing physicians and practitioners to a better manage of childhood acute leukemias.

In covering the topic of gynecologic and obstetric pathology, this book attempts to carve out its own niche midway between an atlas and a traditional textbook. The gross and microscopic images in this atlas are presented exclusively in color, and are supplemented by pertinent clinical information and discussions of differential diagnostic considerations. When deemed appropriate, images of immunohistochemical and special stains are included. To further enhance their visual appeal and the overall learning experience, many images in this book are presented with annotations and/or in composite form, and selected images have been enlarged. This image-intensive textbook also includes numerous Pap smear images and cytologic-histologic correlations. In addition to coverage of pathology of the organs of the female genital tract, brief overviews of the normal histology of these sites are provided as necessary background information. Separate chapters are also devoted to placental and peritoneal pathology. There is an emphasis on diagnostic-related issues pertaining to common lesions and their variants, although classic forms of rare lesions are also presented. In selected instances, recommendations on the processing of gross pathology specimens, discussions regarding the optimal approach for intraoperative consultations, and recommendations on the phrasing of key portions of pathology reports are provided. The 10 chapters of this book are organized by site, and the beginning of each chapter lists the entities discussed and their corresponding page numbers.

Defined as, “The science about the development of an embryo from the fertilization of the ovum to the fetus stage,” embryology has been a mainstay at universities throughout the world for many years. Throughout the last century, embryology became overshadowed by experimental-based genetics and cell biology, transforming the field into developmental biology, which replaced embryology in Biology departments in many universities. Major contributions in this young century in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry and genomics were integrated with both embryology and developmental biology to provide an understanding of the molecular portrait of a “development cell.” That new integrated approach is known as stem-cell biology; it is an understanding of the embryology and development together at the molecular level using engineering, imaging and cell culture principles, and it is at the heart of this seminal book. Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine: From Molecular Embryology to Tissue Engineering is completely devoted to the basic developmental, cellular and molecular biological aspects of stem cells as well as their clinical applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. It focuses on the basic biology of embryonic and cancer cells plus their key involvement in self-renewal, muscle repair, epigenetic processes, and therapeutic applications. In addition, it covers other key relevant topics such as nuclear reprogramming induced pluripotency and stem cell culture techniques using novel biomaterials. A thorough introduction to stem-cell biology, this reference is aimed at graduate students, post-docs, and professors as well as executives and scientists in biotech and pharmaceutical companies.

New therapies are currently being developed in the field of skin cancer. In particular, advances in melanoma now represent the frontline of cancer immunotherapy, as immunological findings in the disease have led to the development of highly effective immune-checkpoint inhibitors. However, these immune-checkpoint inhibitors are only effective in a subset of patients, and may not work in other skin cancer types, thus highlighting the need for further innovation in the field of skin cancer treatment. The purpose of this Research Topic is therefore to provide an up-to-date overview of immune processes and new therapies for melanoma and other skin cancers in order to further stimulate the development of new and even more successful treatments.
