The high affinity IgE receptor (FceRI) plays a central role in allergic diseases including asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, food and drug allergy. Manipulating the function of this receptor is important for controlling the onset of allergic diseases. Written by leading scientists in the field, this book is the first comprehensive monograph to cover various aspects of FceRI structure, signal transduction and function. Thus, the book is valuable for researchers/students working on FceRI and on other receptors. In addition, clinicians who are concerned with broadening their knowledge of the FceRI role in allergic diseases will find this book useful.
