About this book


Following the two meetings on Lactoferrin Structure and Function that were held in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1993 and 1995, the Third International Conference on Lactoferrin Structure and Function was held in Le Touquet, France, and has successfully reinforced and diversified the previously created bridges between biochemists, clinicians, and companies. In fact, scientists, physicians, and people of industry from different domains have brought a wealth of recent information concerning biochemistry and technical advances in the identification of lactoferrin-derived compounds as well as cell biology, molecular biol­ ogy, pathology, and medical applications of lactoferrin and lactoferrin-derived com­ pounds. We were so delighted with the rapid growth of knowledge concerning many biologi­ cal and immunological functions of lactoferrins and the relationships between their struc­ ture and function, we wanted to share our pleasure with the readers interested in this field. The present book. which represents a review of some of the most exciting contributions, is intended to reflect the status of our knowledge and transmit our hopes for the future devel­ opment of in vivo applications of natural and recombinant lactoferrins. We would like to express our gratitude to the sponsors who contributed to the or­ ganization of the meeting in such a pleasant place and allowed the participation of several young researchers. We would also like to thank all the participants who have answered with enthusiasm our invitation and to every one of the Laboratoire de Chimie Biologique for the constant and efficient help.
