Ruslan Medzhitov is probably best known for the fundamental discoveries he’s made concerning the roles that the immune system’s Toll-like receptors play in controlling adaptive immunity, infections, chronic inflammation, and tumor growth. However, recently he’s turned his attention to other areas of the immune system, such as inflammation, tissue biology, and allergic reaction. The inflammatory response protects the body from infection and injury and allows it to reestablish a homeostatic state. But inflammation also operates at a cost to other physiological functions. During inflammation the.

Evolutionary Medicine is a textbook intended for use in undergraduate, graduate, medical school, and continuing medical education (CME) courses. Its professional illustrations and summaries of chapters and sections make its messages readily accessible.Chapter 1 introduces evolutionary thinking about both current dynamic processes and the deep patterns of history and relationship.Chapter 2 asks, "What is a patient?" and answers from a series of perspectives.Chapter 3 asks, "What is a disease?" Some causes are found in patients; others in pathogens; many in the interactions between them.Chapter 4 discusses the nature of defenses, the strategies that determine how they are deployed, and their costs as well as their benefits.Chapter 5 discusses pathogen evolution: the evolution of intrinsic virulence, of evasion and manipulation of host defenses, and of resistance to treatment, and how therapy might be made evolution-proof.Chapter 6 describes cancer as an evolutionary process with a history traced in the genome and with major implications for treatment.Chapter 7 discusses conflicts in reproduction: between mother and offspring, between maternally and paternally derived genes in the offspring, and among siblings. It also discusses menstruation, menopause, and the connection between invasive placentas and metastatic cancer.Chapter 8 discusses mismatches to modern environments, including obesity, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune diseases.Chapter 9 discusses evolutionary perspectives on addiction, anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, autism, and schizophrenia.Chapter 10 explores the tension between individual and group interests and shows how medicine is creating new problems while solving old ones.Chapter 11 starts with questions that have not yet been answered, discusses why we have not chosen to address some issues, and concludes by comparing classical with evolutionary medicine.RESOURCESInstructor's Resource LibraryAvailable to qualified adopters, the Instructor's Resource Library includes the following resources:*Textbook Figures & Tables: All figures (line-art illustrations and photographs) and tables from the textbook, provided as both high- and low-resolution JPEGs.
