Summary

''This thoroughly revised and updated 6th Edition clearly explains the experimental observations that form the basis for the science of immunology at the molecular, cellular, and whole-organism levels - and the conclusions that can be drawn from those observations. It highlights the implications of immunologic science for the management of human disease, emphasizing the clinical relevance of the material.''--BOOK JACKET.
