Immunity in Chronic Disease
The immune system plays a major role in health and disease. The immune system has a central role in many processes involving chronic diseases. Immunological research involving cancer, metabolic syndrome, heart diseases, and others has not only enabled the understanding of the mechanisms that underlie these diseases but also suggested new therapies that may impact positively on patients minimizing morbidity and mortality. This special issue aims to present and discuss the advancement of research and innovative therapies involving molecular targets associated with the immune system and chronic diseases as well as the possibility of involving communicable diseases and chronic emerging. Understanding the cellular, molecular and functional changes to the immune system in chronic diseases, will lead to the design of chronic disease prevention, treatment and management strategies.
