Cytopaenias are due, in part, to the stimulated immune system releasing proinflammatory cytokines, which suppress haemopoiesis in the bone marrow.
They release IFN-y and other cytokines such as IL-2 when activated, therefore they are essential in the regulation of haemopoiesis and immune response (8).
Fifty-two contributed chapters begin with coverage of stem cells and haemopoiesis, erthropoiesis, iron metabolism and disorders of haem synthesis, iron overload, and megaloblastic anaemia; the collection concludes with primary immune thrombocytopenia, haemtological aspects of system disease, and of tropical diseases, and neonatal haematology.
