Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders Book Review:

Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders: A Historic and Scientific Perspective provides a complete historical context that is crucial for students and researchers concerned with primary immunodeficiency. When researchers have a poor understanding of the way we arrived where we are in research, they can miss important points about a disease, or miss out on how to approach new diseases. This historical knowledge of research can assist greatly by showing how it was done in the past, demonstrating the successes and failures, so that it can be done better in the future. This book provides an understanding of the process going from clinical problem to lab and back to the clinic, based on historical experiences. Its chapters proceed from the discovery of the T and B cell lineages through the first BMT for immunodeficiency disorder; lab investigation and gene therapy for PID; the discovery of the gene for AT and its function; understanding cytokine defects; and many other stops along the way. Facilitates communication among physicians and other investigators concerned with immunological and inflammatory diseases Summarizes for the first time all the known facts from 60 years of primary immunodeficiency research, and teaches how an important field in medicine was established Provides stimulating discussions on developing new medical therapies Highlights the importance of studying humans to understand mechanisms of disease that affect humans

Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases Book Review:

The number of diagnosed cases of primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDs) – a group of inborn disorders of the immune system – is growing rapidly, but misdiagnosis or late diagnosis still occurs in a significant number of patients, with serious consequences. This is the second edition of a practical reference textbook on PIDs that has been widely welcomed by scientists and clinicians from around the world. The new edition has been extensively revised to reflect advances in knowledge and includes various PIDs not previously covered. For each disease, information is provided on definition, etiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management. This book will represent an ideal resource for specialists when engaging in diagnosis, clinical decision-making, and treatment planning. It will also prove invaluable for doctors in training and other physicians and nurses who wish to learn more about PIDs.

Pulmonary Manifestations of Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases Book Review:

This book provides a broad overview of the respiratory manifestations associated with Primary Immune deficiencies (PID) congenital genetic defects such as infections, chronic inflammation, autoimmunity, lymphoproliferation, allergic manifestations and rare forms of cancer. Since the most common site of involvement in PID is the lung, the pulmonologists (pediatrics or adult), Internists and General Practitioners may be among the first to recognize the pattern of pulmonary disorders, leading to diagnosis of PID. Pulmonary complications present a significant cause of morbidity and also mortality among patients suffering from different forms of PID. With the prevalence of lung infections and disease so high in PID patients, respiratory professionals will find this book to be an essential resource for diagnosing, managing and referring PID related pulmonary disorders in clinical practice.

Clinical Cases in Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases Book Review:

Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDs) are a heterogeneous group of inherited disorders characterized by different defects in the development and function of the immune system. This book aims to increase the clinical awareness and knowledge of practicing clinicians regarding the diagnosis and management of PIDs. In order to achieve this goal, about 90 cases drawn from real life are presented, along with approximately 300 related questions. The selected case reports are the result of the invaluable cooperation of more than 40 scientists in the field of immunodeficiency. They focus both on the presenting features of patients with PIDs and on the required further investigation and management. Each of the numbered cases is followed by the questions, their answers, and additional discussion. Each question focuses on a particular aspect of the PID under consideration, and the topics covered include clinical diagnosis, laboratory findings, molecular mechanisms, and therapy.

PRIMARY IMMUNODEFICIENCY DISOR Book Review:

All rights not granted by the above license are retained by the author. Abstract: Primary immunodeficiency disorders (PID) are rare inborn errors of the immune system. Patients with PID are susceptible to infections, autoimmunity, lymphoproliferation, allergy and cancer as a result of immune aberrations. The field of PID is marked by rapid discovery in genetic etiologies, disease mechanisms and novel treatments. However, the gap between cutting-edge scientific research and its translation to clinical practice is widening, as the lack of resources and expertise in PID remains the critical bottle-neck in many countries. In 2009, The Asian Primary Immunodeficiency (APID) Network was established by the Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, The University of Hong Kong with the mission to promote awareness of PID among clinicians in mainland China and Southeast Asia by means of a consultative platform, and to offer genetic tests for patients with suspected PID for diagnostic confirmation. This thesis provides a comprehensive review of the clinical characteristics and genetic findings of patients referred to the APID Network. The trend and current status of PID service development in Asia was analyzed, with an aim to identify the needs and priorities in improving the standard of care for PID. Data supported a major improvement PID care in terms of the age of diagnosis, particularly in X-linked agammaglobulinemia and Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. However, treatment remained a major issue for severe combined immunodeficiency due to disease severity and the lack of expertise and resources, limiting the availability of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation which is the life-saving procedure to these children. Long-term follow-up and outcome data are largely unavailable for PID in Asia. All these are imminent issues to be tackled. The close collaboration among immunology centers and systematic data analysis constitute the foundation for research on PID. This provides insights into the phenotypic and genetic diversities, as well as unique disease presentations in Asia which are not otherwise described in the literature. This study highlights the susceptibility to BCG-osis, tuberculosis, melioidosis and Chromobacterium violaceum infection in patients with chronic granulomatous disease. By performing a detailed systematic literature review of Penicillium marneffei infection, a form of endemic mycosis in Southeast Asia, penicilliosis was first advocated as an indicator for PID in HIV-negative individuals. This was followed by the discovery of autosomal dominant STAT1 defect as a genetic predisposition for this fatal infectious disease. The collaborative network also provides exciting opportunities for discovering novel PID. Our work demonstrated that whole exome sequencing is readily applicable to the clinical setting for identifying monogenic cause of well-defined phenotypes, and is particularly valuable in multi-centered studies involving patients from diverse ethnic background. Our findings also revealed how whole exome sequencing could uncover atypical phenotypes of classical PID, which would otherwise be missed by adopting an algorithmic diagnostic approach. The continuous efforts of the APID Network will not only directly benefit more patients and their families, but will undoubtedly contribute to the advancement of knowledge in PID.

Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases Book Review:

Primary immunodeficiency diseases, first recognized 60 years ago, are inherited disorders that affect human adaptive and innate immunity. In most cases, affected individuals experience recurrent infections, but they may also suffer from autoimmune diseases and malignancies. This third edition of Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases provides readers with the historic and scientific background, clinical presentations, immunologic characteristics, and the molecular/genetic underpinnings of this rapidly enlarging class of diseases. With up-to-date diagnostic tools and therapeutic options -- from prophylactic anti-infective measures to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and gene therapy -- this volume will remain an authoritative resource on this increasingly important area.
