Abstract
With the recent definition of the Th17 cell subset, a new paradigm in innate and adaptive immunity has been established. This book describes the function of the Th17 cell subset and its prevalent role in many inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The mechanism by which this T cell subset is generated and maintained shows specific differences between mice and man which are reviewed. One characteristic of Th17 cells is to secrete specific and unique cytokines such as IL-17A, IL-17F and IL-22; their functions are described in detail. These cytokines have acquired a prevalent role in many pathological conditions in animal models and in humans. Targeting these cytokines as well as the generation of Th17 cells may open new ways to treat many autoimmune diseases. The role of Th17 in infectious conditions is also addressed.

Abstract
In Vivo Models of Inflammation provides the biomedical researcher in both the pharmaceutical industry and academia with a description of the state of the art animal model systems used to emulate diseases with components of inflammation. This second edition acts as a complement to the first edition by describing and updating the standard models that are most utilized for specific disease areas. In addition, new models are included exploring emerging areas of inflammation research. The format is designed with the laboratory in mind: Both volumes provide detailed descriptions of the methodologies and uses of the most significant models. This includes current information regarding agents that demonstrate efficacy, those that do not and those that can be used as standard controls. The focus remains on those models that serve as pre-clinical correlates to human disease as well as those that represent components of the inflammatory response. Pioneering ideas and provocative comments about future directions are meant to challenge the status quo and stimulate new thinking. Therefore, new approaches to the development of future models in selected therapeutic areas have been highlighted. The focus on novel technologies that are vital for innovative in vivo research has been expanded to include chapters on the use of transgenic and gene transfer technologies, nanotechnology, and stem cells. This up-to-date reference manual helps to select the best animal model for a specific question. At the same time, this set of books continues to acknowledge the solemn responsibility in vivo research carries with it and extends the coverage of animal respect and welfare when used in experimental settings. Chapters describing current regulations in the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan address these concerns. Thus, the ultimate aim of this set of books is to provide current best practices for obtaining the maximum information from in vivo experimentation, while preserving the dignity and comfort of the animal.
Contents
