Upon infection the host needs to mount vigorous immune response against pathogen in order to successfully control its replication However once the infectious agent is controlled or eliminated host cells need to signal the immune system to slow or cease its activities While vast knowledge has been accumulated through the years on the mechanisms involved in the initiation and effector phases of the immune responses the pathways triggered in order to modulate or end innate and acquired immunity are becoming more evident as evidence for its relevance comes to surface Due to its biological power evidence has surfaced indicating that eventually pathogens may take advantage of such regulatory pathways in order to escape effector mechanisms and progress to persistence This book will discuss several cellular pathways involved in controlling immune response in the context of infectious diseases their biological consequences and potential hijack of these pathways for the benefit of pathogen leading towards pathogen persistence as opposed to clearanceControl of Innate and Adaptive Immune Responses during Infectious Diseases EbookBy Julio Aliberti Publisher Springer Print ISBN 9781461404835 1461404835 eText ISBN 9781461404842 1461404843 Copyright year 2012 Format PDF Available from 12900 USD SKU 9781461404842
