GHHE 000/5346 - Immunopharmacology and Immunotoxicology (3 cr.)



Description
This course explores the molecular and cell biology of immune effectors, including inflammatory mediators and cytokines as pleiotropic agents with a fundamental role in regulation of innate and adaptive immunity, growth factors in tumor development and angiogenesis, signals in neuroimmune activity and degenerative processes. The rationale and mechanisms of therapeutic targeting of the immune system in allergies, autoimmunity and transplantation will be expounded, as will the targeting of the immune system by animate and chemical etiological factors to produce hyper- and hypo-activation.
