In An Introduction to Immunology, the author includes the most recent information while emphasizing the basic fundamentals of each topic so that you obtain a broad outline of the subject. The text elucidates fundamental concepts, such as the origin of the immune system, innate and acquired immunity, and cells and organs of the immune system. It discusses recent concepts and ideas regarding innate and acquired immunity, T-cell and B-cell activation and differentiation mechanisms, factors involved in rheumatoid arthritis, T-cell clonal anergy, NK cell receptors, strategies in production of new vaccines against pathogens, new information on the minor histocompatibility complex, and much more. Moreover, the author brings you up to date with the latest developments by reviewing recently proposed concepts on transplantation immunology, blocking of costimulatory signals, CTLA-4 mediated T-cell inhibition, immune tolerance, NK cell tolerance, HLA delivered peptides for immunosuppression, and tumor antigens coded by oncogens. Covering subject matter based on the immunology course taught by the author for the past twenty years, Introduction to Immunology is an excellent text for graduate and postgraduate students, as well as a good reference book for teachers of biological sciences.
