      The knowledge about parasitic diseases at different levels, such as life cycles, structures, molecular biology, development of new drugs and vaccines, and its ability to escape or modulate different mechanisms of defense of its hosts, is essential to better development of therapies and diagnostics.   B cells of the marginal zone (MZ), which separates circulating blood from spleen lymphoid tissue, contribute to this early immune response, but their role in inflammation has remained unclear.

This book reports the proceedings of a WHO meeting held in Geneva, Switzerland in June to discuss the spleen with special reference to its role in the immunology of major tropical infections. The first 6 contributions (pp.

) describe the structure of the spleen and its relations to immunity especially as regards the lymphocytic system. Conference Title: Role of the spleen in the immunology of parasitic diseases. Proceedings of the meeting held in Geneva, June Proceedings of the meeting held in Geneva, June Abstract: This book contains the views of an international group of experts and will be of interest to immunologists.

There is a tight relation between host and pathogen:There is a tight relation. The spleen, however, has a unique place in host defense, because it combines all of these functions in one organ.

Thus, because of its anatomic location directly connected to the circulation, it responds promptly to bloodborne antigens with antigen-specific immune responses, much more effectively than can lymph nodes or other lymphoid tissues Cited by: Arranged by organism, the book aims to survey and evaluate new and existing knowledge in the field of parasitic immunology and molecular biology.

This new edition has been revised and expanded, and new material on the relevance of molecular biology in diagnosis and vaccine development has been included. To finalize this section, the group of Edda Sciutto 13 wrote a very complete up-date on the role of Tregs in parasitic diseases, mainly focused on protozoan infections.

The last block of papers is focused on helminth infections, mainly cysticercosis which is an important public health problem in the Americas, Africa, India, China and : Luis I. Terrazas, Abhay R. Satoskar, Jorge Morales-Montor, Miriam Rodriguez-Sosa. The spleen combines the innate and adaptive immune system in a uniquely organized way.

The structure of the spleen enables it to remove older erythrocytes from the circulation and leads to the Cited by: E.T. Morgan, in Drug Metabolism in Diseases, Leishmaniasis. Leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease that afflicts – million people each year.

Visceral leishmaniasis is the most serious infection, involving infection of liver, spleen, and bone marrow with Leishmania donovani or Leishmania infantum. The spleen and its role in immune function. The spleen is a brownish fist-sized organ located in the upper left side of the abdomen, tucked into a space between the stomach, pancreas and left kidney.

It’s one of those organs that people know about, but aren’t sure what it does. Essentially, the spleen is a storage container and filter for. The role of cysteine-free proteins in the immunobiology of arthropod-borne diseases is afforded by S. Mejia et al. “Cysteine-Free proteins in the immunobiology of arthropod-borne diseases.

” They discuss their findings in the context of protein structure and function, antigenicity and immunogenicity, and host-parasite by: 2. Innate and Cellular Immunology in Parasitic Diseases Article (PDF Available) in International journal of biological sciences 7(9) November with. Covers hot topics such as the role of genetics and genomics in immune response and immunologic disease, atherosclerosis, recurrent fever syndromes, aging and deficiencies of innate immunity, the role of microbiota in normal immune system development and the pathogenesis of immunologic and inflammatory diseases, and novel therapeutics.

The spleen is one of the major immunological sites for maintaining blood homeostasis. Previous studies showed that heterogeneous splenic macrophage populations contribute in complimentary ways to control blood-borne infections and induce effective immune responses.

Marginal metallophilic macrophages (MMMΦs) and marginal zone macrophages (MZMΦs) are cells Cited by:   The Spleen and Some of its Diseases provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the spleen.

Other than that the spleen plays, some part in the destruction of old blood-corpuscles and the generation of new, little is known concerning the function of this organ.

That it is somehow affected in the course of many of the infectious diseases is apparently shown by the frequency with which it undergoes enlargement of size in conjunction. Certain diseases might cause your spleen to swell. You can also damage or rupture your spleen in an injury, especially if it is already swollen.

If your spleen is too damaged, you might need surgery to remove it. You can live without a spleen. Other organs, such as your liver, will take over some of the spleen's work.BackgroundResident memory T cells have emerged as key players in the immune response generated against a number of pathogens.

Their ability to take residence in non-lymphoid peripheral tissues allows for the rapid deployment of secondary effector responses at the site of pathogen entry. This ability to provide enhanced regional immunity has gathered much Cited by: Infections with protozoa and helminths are typically chronic (often lasting for the remainder of the lifetime of the host), with the onset of disease symptoms in many instances developing years after the initial infection.
