Combining their backgrounds in pathology and education, Drs Trowbridge and Emling have created a comprehensive "self-study" program in inflammation. Chapters build on the reader's basic medical science background, and strategically placed "self-tests" allow readers to pause and test their comprehension before advancing to new material. Useful metaphors, informative illustrations, and a new clinical-connections section make this book an ideal refresher for busy clinicians and an indispensable study aid for graduate students preparing for specialty board examinations.

The work presented here is based upon contact with excellent scientists who did not measure their time sparingly to be of assistance. It has also benefited from the infrastructure some col leagues made available to me, and without which considerable delays and expenditure would have been unavoidable. In this respect, I am particularly indebted to a number of people. Dr. J. Abramovici, Professor S. Orloff and Professor R. Fridrich reviewed my data critically and gave me access to their Insti tutes, enabling me to collect the clinical evi dence required to complete this work. The latter benefited also from the efforts of Dr. K. Streule who supervised the cross-over study upon which the final conclusions have been based. Dr. R. Senekowitsch and her staff were of inva luable help with the animal experimental data and was, together with Professor H. Kriegel, kind enough to enable me to complete this particular part. Dr. H.L. Chia's laboratory data provided me with the possibility to widen the radiopharmaceu tical aspects of the theme under discussion. I am also indebted to Dr. K.J.

A link between inflammation and cancer has been established many years ago, yet it is only recently that the potential significance of this connection has become apparent. Although several examples of chronic inflammatory conditions, often induced by persistent irritation and/or infection, developing into cancer have been known for some time, there has been a notable resistance to contemplate the possibility that this association may apply in a causative way to other cancers. Examples for such progression from chronic inflammation to cancer are colon carcinoma developing with increased frequency in patients with ulcerative colitis, and the increased incidence of bladder cancer in patients suffering from chronic Schistosoma infection. Inflammation and cancer have been recognized to be linked in another context for many years, i.e., with regards to pathologies resembling chronic lacerations or 'wounds that do not heal.' More recently, the immunology of wound healing has given us clues as to the mechanistic link between inflammation and cancer, in as much as wounds and chronic inflammation turn off local cell-mediated immune responses and switch on growth factor release as well the growth of new blood vessels - angiogenesis. Both of these are features of most types of tumours, which suggest that tumours may require an immunologically shielded milieu and a growth factor-rich environment.

The Inflammatory Process focuses on the approaches, methodologies, and technologies involved in the study of the inflammatory process, including capillary structure, tissue injury, and inflammatory response. The selection first offers information on the experimental approach to inflammation, ultrastructural and biochemical consequences of cell injury, and ultrastructural basis of capillary permeability. Discussions focus on permeability of capillaries, cytoplasm, nucleus, gross pathology of inflammation, light microscope and the study of inflammation, and the physiologic approach to problems of inflammation. The text then elaborates on the microvascular aspects of tissue injury and the sticking and emigration of white blood cells in inflammation. The book examines neutrophil and eosinophil leucocytes, "life history" and functions of lymphocytes, and metabolism and physiology of mononuclear phagocytes. Topics include inflammatory response, biochemistry and metabolism, special relationships to bacteria and viruses, and origins and early development of lymphocytes. The text also ponders on the role of lysosomes in tissue injury, hemostatic mechanisms in tissue injury, and anti-inflammatory agents. The selection is a vital source of data for researchers interested in the inflammatory process.

Despite major efforts by the scientific community over the years, our understanding of the pathogenesis or the mechanisms of injury of multiple sclerosis is still limited. Consequently, the current strategies for treatment and management of patients are limited in their efficacy. The mechanisms of tissue protection and repair are probably even less understood. One reason for these limitations is the enormous complexity of the disease and every facet of its pathogenesis, the mechanisms of tissue injury, the diagnostic procedures and finally the efficacy of treatments and their side effects. The aim of this book is to review the most recent advances made in this highly complex field.
