Edited By James J. Lee and Helene F. Rosenberg
(Elsevier Publishers, 2012) is an all-encompassing treatise that includes both basic and clinical research as well as cutting-edge insights into the biology and physiology of the eosinophilic leukocyte. Written by established and up-and-coming leaders in the field, this book covers the history and evolution, eosinophil structure, essential functions, role(s) in promoting homeostasis, and its varied contributions to the dysregulation and pathologies associated with numerous disorders and disease states. This book is much more than a simple compilation of latest facts, but provides unique and valuable opinions and “outside-the-box” perspectives. Eosinophils in Health and Disease is an essential reference for researchers, clinical investigators, and advanced students in the fields of immunology, autoimmunity, asthma and allergy research, and cell biology.
