1999), but the role of phenoloxidase in bivalve host defense mechanisms
has not yet been elucidated.
However, poor understanding of host defense mechanisms
still impedes the development and application of C.
Intended for students of veterinary medicine studying how cells and tissues respond to injury and how host defense mechanisms
interact, this text is not intended to be encyclopedic but rather to offer close coverage of a selection of specific diseases--those commonly seen in practice and those that illustrate a basic pathogenetic mechanism.
These inhaled Cationic Airway Lining Modulator (iCALM) drugs stimulate host defense mechanisms
that prevent infection and enhance the clearance of pathogens, and have the potential to address a wide range of significant medical needs through a novel pathogen independent approach.
