Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a fascinating book about how nutrition affects immunity...of great value to those caregivers in the third world and also for those working in the laboratory with infectious diseases..." - Practical Gastroenterology

"This handbook provides a concise analysis of peer reviewed works that have examined the role of nutrition and immune defenses." - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

From the Back Cover

Because nutrient deficiencies can alter immune response to produce a higher incidence of infection and increased mortality-especially in children-it is important in clinical practice, both as a therapeutic and preventive measure, to determine whether the patient is malnourished. In Handbook of Nutrition and Immunity, an international panel of physicians, pediatricians, immunologists, and public health nutritionists concisely review for front-line health care providers and researchers the practical aspects related to evaluating nutrition and immunology in the field. Here the busy physician and investigator will quickly find a clear and up-to-date understanding of the essential immunological facts in adult and child nutrition. Citing the latest research findings, the authors explain the role of nutrition in such current health issues as HIV, malaria, food allergies, diarrhea, and acute respiratory infections, and review the impact of macro- and micronutrient deficiencies, dietary fat, and antioxidants on immune status. They also discuss the evaluation of immune function in the nutritionally at-risk patient, the immunological effects of severe undernutrition in children, the assessment of nutrition in the field with and without sophisticated facilities, and the special case of the pregnant and lactating woman. As an added value, a compact disk accompanies the book for downloading an ebook version to the reader's PC or PDA.
Comprehensive and holistic, the Handbook of Nutrition and Immunity illuminates for busy health care providers and scientists the interaction and linkages between nutrition and immunology and provides an up-to-date understanding of the practical problems associated with evaluating nutritional and immune status in the field.
