Breaking Tolerance to Unresponsiveness to Immunotherapy by Natural Killer Cells Book Review:

Breaking Tolerance to Unresponsiveness to Immunotherapy by Natural Killer Cells presents chapters by leaders in translational natural killer cell research and bridges the gap between clinical need and basic science by presenting state-of-the-art knowledge on innate immunity and the challenges associated with translating it to practical adoptive immunotherapies. New approaches, such as the genetic engineering of NK cells and their combination with checkpoint blockade therapies are discussed among other potential interventions to improve natural killer cell functionality against targets. In addition, challenges, such as the difficulty in genetically modifying NK cells or a poor understanding of their effect on checkpoint inhibition are included. The book is a key reference and go-to resource for researchers and clinicians who want to understand the current limitations associated with bringing natural killer cell-based immunotherapies to the clinic. Discusses translational aspects from leaders in the field to facilitate readers' understanding of clinical challenges Addresses important events that occur in patient tumor microenvironments as they pertain to NK cells and how they are, or can be, tackled to overcome immunosuppression of NK cells Focuses on immunometabolism by discussing the metabolic reprogramming that NK cells undergo in solid tumors, including hypoxia, adenosine and other metabolites

Cancer Immunotherapy at the Crossroads Book Review:

Leading investigators and clinicians detail the different mechanisms used by tumors to escape and impair the immune system and then spell out possible clinical strategies to prevent or reverse tumor-induced immune dysfunction. The authors review the mechanisms of immune dysfunction and evasion mechanisms in histologically diverse human tumors, focusing on tumor-induced molecular defects in T cells and antigen-presenting cells (dendritic cells and tumors), that may serve as biomarkers for patient prognosis. They discuss the means by which these immune functions may be protected or restored in order to more effectively support the process of tumor rejection in situ. Cutting-edge techniques are outlined with the capacity to monitor the strength and quality of patients' immune responses using immunocytometry, MHC-peptide tetramers combined with apoptosis assay, ELISPOT assay, and detection of MHC-TAA peptide complexes on tumor cells.

Self and Nonself Book Review:

In 1960 Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet received the Noble Prize in Physiology and Medicine. He titled his Nobel Lecture “Immunological Recognition of Self” emphasizing the central argument of immunological tolerance in “How does the vertebrate organism recognize self from nonself in this the immunological sense—and how did the capacity evolve.” The concept of self is linked to the concept of biological self identity. All organisms, from bacteria to higher animals, possess recognition systems to defend themselves from nonself. Even in the context of the limited number of metazoan phyla that have been studied in detail, we can now describe many of the alternative mechanism of immune recognition that have emerged at varying points in phylogeny. Two different arms—the innate and adaptive immune system—have emerged at different moments in evolution, and they are conceptually different. The ultimate goals of immune biology include reconstructing the molecular networks underlying immune processes.

Transplantation Immunology Book Review:

Transplantation Immunology Edited by Fritz H. Bach, M.D., and Hugh Auchincloss, Jr., M.D. In recent years, transplantation immunology has evolved as a distinct field founded on the recognition that rejection of a transplanted organ or tissue is mediated by immune mechanisms in the host responding to antigens in the donor tissue. This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of current knowledge regarding the specific immune mechanisms which can cause recipients to reject clinical transplants. The text is divided into four sections: Major and Minor Histocompatibility Antigens, Immunobiology of Graft Rejection, Clinical Transplantation, and Frontiers in Transplantation. The first two sections cover present-day understanding of the genetic controls of immunity as well as the two basic concerns of transplantation immunology, namely donor tissue antigens and the host cellular response. The third section deals with clinical aspects of transplantation, while the fourth looks toward future efforts of scientific research in this field—including advances in tolerance and xenotransplantation. A detailed appendix entitled "Molecular Biology for the Clinician" is included to help make the material accessible to readers of all backgrounds. Authored by a wide range of experts in both clinical and research fields, individual chapters cover such topics as: T cell immunity Antigen presentation Alloreactivity Pancreas and islet cell transplantation Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation Models of tolerance induction Xenotransplantation The swine leukocyte antigen (SLA) complex Transplantation Immunology is an ideal teaching text for the fundamental concepts, latest findings, and future directions in this increasingly important field. This volume will appeal to a wide range of clinicians including surgeons and primary-care physicians, as well as scientists in molecular biology and immunology.

Natural Killer Cell Protocols Book Review:

In Natural Killer Cell Protocols: Cellular and Molecular Methods, Kerry S. Campbell and Marco Colonna have assembled a comprehensive collection of readily reproducible methods designed to study natural killer (NK) cells from the broadest variety of viewpoints. These include not only classic techniques, but also new approaches to standard methods, newly evolved techniques that have become valuable for specific applications, and unique models for manipulating and studying NK cells. Among the advanced methods covered are those for in vitro transendothelial migration, in vivo detection of cells migrating into tumors, immunofluorescence staining of intracellular cytokines, and in vitro NK cell development. Valuable techniques for specific applications include vaccinia virus protein expression, soluble KIR-Fc fusions for HLA class I binding assays, calcium mobilization in cell conjugates, and identification of heterodimeric receptor complexes using cDNA library expression cloning. No less important are accounts of such classic methods as hybrid resistance, ADCC, viral defense, target cell cytotoxicity assays, cloning and culturing, tumor immunotherapy, and generation of HLA class I transfected target cells. Natural Killer Cell Protocols: Cellular and Molecular Methods offers immunologists, cancer researchers, virologists, and cell biologists today's most comprehensive collection of both established and cutting-edge techniques, methods that will contribute significantly to advancing our understanding of this fascinating and critically important class of cells.

Stress Challenges and Immunity in Space Book Review:

This book explains how stress – either psychological or physical – can activate and/or paralyse human innate or adaptive immunity. Adequate immunity is crucial for maintaining health, both on Earth and in space. During space flight, human physiology is specifically challenged by complex environmental stressors, which are most pronounced during lunar or interplanetary missions. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the book identifies the impact of these stressors – the space exposome – on immunity as a result of (dys-)functions of specific cells, organs and organ networks. These conditions (e.g. gravitation changes, radiation, isolation/confinement) affect immunity, but at the same time provide insights that may help to prevent, diagnose and address immune-related health alterations. Written by experts from academia, space agencies and industry, the book is a valuable resource for professionals, researchers and students in the field of medicine, biology and technology. The chapters “The Impact of Everyday Stressors on the Immune System and Health”, “Stress and Radiation Responsiveness” and “Assessment of Radiosensitivity and Biomonitoring of Exposure to Space adiation” are available open access under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License via link.springer.com.
