Eosinophil Ultrastructure Book Review:

Eosinophil Ultrastructure: Atlas of Eosinophil Cell Biology and Pathology entirely focuses on eosinophils and their functional roles in inflammation, host defense, and normal homeostatic activities. The book explores the ultrastructure of human eosinophils, highlighting biological processes observed under normal, experimental, and pathological conditions. Created to fill a void in the eosinophil literature, the book includes an extensive array of electron microscopic images that illustrate the diversity of eosinophil morphology. While the atlas is a learning and teaching tool, it is mainly a helpful resource for researchers to identify distinguishing features and structural changes that arise during studies of human eosinophils. The book also covers the ultrastructure of mouse eosinophils under normal and activation conditions and in the context of representative diseases. Gives guidelines to understand the human eosinophils in studies focused on structural biology, cellular immunology, innate and adaptive immunity, immune responses to pathogens, immunopathology, and inflammatory responses Provides a core of essential knowledge to identify both immature and mature eosinophils Comprises a representative compilation of the eosinophil ultrastructure during biological processes, such as activation and degranulation, mostly under experimental conditions Highlights eosinophil biological processes found in vivo during human diseases, thus providing a link between basic science and clinical aspects Helps identify distinguishing features and structural changes that arise during studies of human eosinophils after isolation from body fluids, while in cultures, or biopsies Explains the ultrastructural organization of mature and immature mouse eosinophils, highlighting the similarities/differences between them and human eosinophils

Pathogenic Advances and Therapeutic Perspectives for Eosinophilic Inflammation Book Review:

With the recent approval of the first eosinophil-depleting therapeutic agents targeting the IL-5 pathway for treatment of severe eosinophilic asthma, eosinophils and eosinophilic disorders are in the limelight. Indeed, setbacks during clinical development of these compounds have revealed how much remains to be known about eosinophil biology in vivo, and have nurtured profuse research both on basic eosinophil biology and on pathogenic disease mechanisms, in order to better delineate the most meaningful targets for innovative therapeutic strategies. On one hand, variable degrees of eosinophil depletion observed in some compartments during IL-5-targeted treatment indicate that certain eosinophil subsets may not rely on this cytokine and/or that other important pro-eosinophilic mediators and signaling pathways are operative in vivo. On the other hand, it is increasingly clear that disorders involving eosinophils such as asthma are the final outcome of complex interactions between diverse cell types and mediators, beyond eosinophils and IL-5. These include type 2 helper T (Th2) cells and innate lymphoid cells, mast cells, and a variety of factors that either activate eosinophils or are released by them. Although a considerable amount of research has focused on asthma because it is a common condition and because management of severe asthma remains a major challenge, several rare eosinophilic disorders with more homogenous features have proven to be extremely useful models to reach a better understanding of the involvement of eosinophils in tissue damage and dysfunction, and of the micro-environmental interactions operating within the complex network of eosinophilic inflammation. Unraveling this interplay has resulted in advances in the development of molecular tools to detect disease subsets and to monitor therapeutic responses, and in identification of promising new therapeutic targets. This Research Topic dedicated to eosinophilic conditions covers aspects of the biology of eosinophils and closely related cells of particular relevance for drug development, reports on translational research investigating pathogenic mechanisms of specific eosinophilic disorders in humans that will likely result in significant changes in the way patients are managed, and presents an overview of the current advancement of targeted drug development for these conditions, with a special focus on asthma.

The Ultrastructure of Human Tumours Book Review:

The Ultrastructure of Human Tumours: Applications in Diagnosis and Research describes the core features as seen by transmission electron microscopy, defining the different types of cellular differentiation in tumours; this is relevant for tumour nomenclature and diagnosis, which, in turn, are important for tumour pathologists in their collaboration with oncologists for the treatment of cancer patients. The book is divided into 8 chapters. Following an introduction on technique and procedure, there are chapters on epithelial tumours, melanocytic lesions, soft-tissue and related tumours, lymphoma and leukaemia, CNS neoplasms and neuroendocrine and neuronal tumours. Each chapter includes an introductory text that puts the ultrastructural features in the context of classical pathology. The book includes many new findings and interpretations from well-known tumours, as well as ultrastructural information on several newly described tumour entities not dealt with in existing tumour ultrastructure monographs. The book will especially be of value to tumour pathologists who need to solve problem cases with the aid of electron microscopy, but also to cancer research and tissue engineering scientists working to develop anti-cancer and stem-cell-based therapies. However, even those without access to electron microscopy may also benefit from this book, since many of the images provide an ‘explanation’ of the appearances of cells, tissues and tumours familiar to pathologists and scientists from light microscopy. In this respect, it is hoped that this book will stimulate the wider use of electron microscopy in pathology. The book is comprehensively referenced, 680 pages long and lavishly illustrated with 757 figures. Dr. Brian Eyden is Consultant Clinical Scientist and Dr. S. Sankar Banerjee Consultant Histopathologist in the Department of Histopathology, Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, UK; Dr. Yongxin Ru is Director of the Department of Electron Microscopy, Institute of Hematology and Blood Diseases Hospital, Tianjin, China; Paweł Liberski is Professor in the Department of Molecular Pathology and Neuropathology, Medical University Łódź, Poland.

Ultrastructure Macromolecules and Evolution Book Review:

Thus far in the history of biology, two, and only two, fundamental principles have come to light that pervade and unify the entire science-the cell theory and the concept of evolution. While it is true that recently opened fields of inves tigation have given rise to several generalizations of wide impact, such as the universality of DNA and the energetic dynamics of ecology, closer inspection reveals them to be part and parcel of either of the first two mentioned. Because in the final analysis energy can act upon an organism solely at the cellular level, its effects may be perceived basically to represent one facet of cell me tabolism. Similarly, because the DNA theory centers upon the means by which cells build proteins and reproduce themselves, it too proves to be only one more, even though an exciting, aspect of the cell theory. In fact, if the matter is given closer scrutiny, evolution itself can be viewed as being a fundamental portion of the cell concept, for its effects arise only as a consequence of changes in the cell's genetic apparatus accumulating over geological time. Or, if one wishes, the diametrically opposite standpoint may be taken. For, if current concepts of the origin of life hold any validity, the evolution of precellular organisms from the primordial biochemicals must have proceeded over many eons of time prior to the advent of even the most primitive cell.

Diagnostic Ultrastructural Pathology Book Review:

This problem-based guide illustrates key reasoning processes that physicians use to resolve individual clinical problems through the use of electron microscopy. Its format will facilitate learning the case approach for diagnostic ultrastructural pathology using clinical-ultrastructural-pathogenic correlation. A total of 51 cases and a procedural guide for the ultrastructural pathology laboratory are included. The cases were selected according to one of the following four principles: 1) classic cases that were diagnosed readily by light microscopy to facilitate the electron microscopic diagnosis of less "classic" cases; 2) diagnostic cases, those cases for which ultrastructural analysis was essential for the diagnosis; 3) supportive cases, which are those cases where either the light or the electron microscopic diagnosis is supportive and confirmatory to the other; and 4) new facts cases, which are those that establish new knowledge regarding the pathogenesis of disease using electron microscopy as the investigative modality. The 51 cases are grouped anatomically in eight major categories. Separate indices for presenting symptoms, differential diagnostic groups, ultrastructural pathology criteria, and final diagnostic categories are provided, as well. This guide will be useful to physicians and students of medicine, structure, and disease. It also makes an ideal operational guide and text for support staff training.

This atlas provides a detailed insight into the complex structure and organization of cells and tissues, and highlights their specific functions as well as the dynamics of diverse intracellular processes. Highly informative electron micrographs are complemented by explanatory texts, selected references and schemes. The concept that subcellular organelles provide the structural foundation for fundamental processes of living organisms is emphasized. The first part covers the cellular organelles and changes caused by experiments or occurring under pathological conditions. The second part employs selected examples to illustrate the principles of functional tissue organization and typical changes resulting from experimental induction or pathological situations. The third edition of the atlas, revised and extended by 23 plates, thus provides an invaluable resource for scientists and students of medicine and biological sciences, particularly of histology, cell and molecular biology. Moreover, it will serve as a handy reference guide for diagnostic and research electron microscopy laboratories in clinical, industrial, and academic settings.
