Abstract

Fittingly, this volume, the fourth in its series, is dedicated to Eugene M. Farber, who organized the first international conference on psoriasis in 1971 and has been largely responsible for the three subsequent meetings held at five-year intervals since. The dedicatory remarks and portrait reproduction that begin the book represent an appropriate recognition of Farber's unflagging dedication to psoriasis research over a professional career spanning more than 40 years. Indeed, the four volumes themselves constitute a substantial contribution for which Farber and his associates at Stanford (Calif) University merit our gratitude.

There are two main parts to the book. The first is composed of papers read by invited speakers at plenary sessions of the conference. Subjects covered include control mechanisms of epithelial proliferation, the molecular structure of keratin, oncogenes, and epidermal growth factor. Other plenary sessions were devoted to discussions of possible immunologic mechanisms of psoriasis, epidemiology, and therapy.
