Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases Book Review:

The second edition of Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases presents discussions of gene identification, mutation detection, and clinical and research applications for over 100 genetic immune disorders--disorders featuring an increased susceptibility to infections and, in certain conditions, an icreased rate of malignancies and autoimmune disorders. Since the publication of the first edition, a flurry of new disease entities has been defined and new treatment regimens have been introduced, the most spectacular being successful treatment by gene therapy for two genotypes of combined immunodeficiency. The first edition marked a historic turning point in the field of immunodeficiencies, demonstrating that many of the disorders of the immune systam could be understood at a molecular level. This new edition can proudly document the tremendous pace of progress in dissecting the complex immunologic networks responsible for protecting individuals from these disorders.

Inborn Errors of Immunity Book Review:

Awareness among clinicians about PIDs, which consist of more than 400 different entities, plays an important role in ensuring that patients receive a timely diagnosis. Furthermore, clinicians who are educated about PIDs can give their patients access to optimal management of their condition, thus helping the patient achieve a better quality-of-life and long-term prognosis. Inborn Errors of Immunity: A Practical Guide provides the most up-to-date information for busy students, nurses, clinical residents, practicing physicians, and even basic researchers. Readers will benefit from a well-structured breakdown of complicated PID diseases, including approaches to their clinical signs/symptoms and immunologic/laboratory findings. Presents valuable contribution of more than 40 expert chapter authors, from top centers spanning five continents, each in a specific PID field • Covers various aspects of PID using updated clinical guidelines and standard stepwise pipelines • Focuses on the latest developments in the molecular diagnosis and pathogenesis of diseases, with easy explanation and schematic representation of defective signaling pathways • Includes dedicated sections for clinical features and immunological tests with carefully-curated figures of PID manifestations, imaging, and histological/pathological illustrations to create the first PID medial-color atlas • Summarizes the updated conventional and specific treatments and follow-up notes for different PID diseases

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

CARMA Proteins Playing a Hand of Four CARDs Book Review:

Some twenty years ago, the search began for B-cell lymphoma (BCL)-10 binding partners that connect via homophilic interaction with its N-terminal caspase recruitment domain (CARD) to induce nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) activation. This effort led first to the identification of the protein CARD9. Soon afterwards, similar searches identified CARD10 (aka CARMA3), CARD11 (aka CARMA1) and CARD14 (aka CARMA2), as further BCL10 interactors. These discoveries paved the way for landmark progress in our understanding of NF-κB activation pathways downstream of several cell surface receptors on multiple cell types, focused particularly on antigen receptors on lymphocytes. An additional binding partner, called Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1), was also implicated in the CARD-BCL10 pathway. Since then, the resulting “CBM” complex has been recognized as a key node in signaling cascades leading to NF-κB activation, particularly in immune cells. Mouse models of genetic deficiencies for each CBM component provided the first evidence for their critical role in cell signaling. More recently, studies of human lymphoid malignancies and novel genetic disorders have revealed important new insights. Both gain- and loss-of-function mutations were identified, establishing these CARMA/CARD proteins as key regulators of proliferation and differentiation of immune and non-immune cells, and linking them to human disease. According to the genetic defect involved, dysregulation of CARMA/CARD pathways can lead to a broad spectrum of immune disorders, including severe immune deficiencies, lymphoproliferative disorders, psoriasis and atopy. The aim of this Research Topic is to summarize and update our current understanding of CARMA/CARD protein biology, from initial discoveries to the most recent insights. It focuses on CARD9 and the CARMA proteins CARD10, CARD11 and CARD14, from genetic, signaling and disease perspectives. BCL10 and MALT1 are also reviewed in this context as critical nodes for CBM signal relay and regulation. This Research Topic also aims to delineate the next key questions in the field to guide future research efforts.
