Current Advances in Immunology presents the advances in immunology in an easy-to-use format. The book is split into 51 main areas that are further classified into sections. Where appropriate, cross-referencing to other sections is given. The text also provides a guide on how to use the book.
Papers included in the book focus on a variety of topics ranging from immunoglobulins and antigens to interferons, lymphocytes, leukocytes, and macrophages as well as natural killer cells, Langerhans cells, dendritic cells, lymphoid tissue, and humoral mediators of immune responses and immunomodulators. Other papers discuss blood groups, transplantation, anti-bacterial immunity, chronic inflammation, delayed hypersensitivity, and contact sensitivity. Immunodeficiency, immune complexes, tumor immunity, immunopharmacology and immunotoxicology, and the link between nutrition and immunity are also explored. A section devoted to psychoneuroimmunology focuses on the effect of stress on graft-versus-host reaction; immunological response to stress in agoraphobia and panic attacks; and anti-beta-endorphin immunoglobulin G in humans.
This book will be of interest to working scientists in the field of immunology.
