Summary

The Immune System, Second Edition has been designed for use in immunology courses for undergraduate, medical, dental, and pharmacy students. This classtested and successful textbook synthesizes the established facts of immunology into a comprehensible, coherent, and uptodate account of how the immune system works, rather than presenting immunology as a chronology of experiments and discoveries. Emphasizing the human immune system the text has been designed to break down the barriers which often divide basic and clinical immunology. The readerfriendly text, section and chapter summaries, and fullcolor illustrations make the book accessible and easily understandable to students. The Immune System is adapted from Immunobiology by Janeway, Travers & Walport.

  • Inclusion of endofchapter questions throughout the book. Questions consist of a mix of clinical and basic science. Detailed answers to all questions are provided in the back of the book.
  • Completely updated throughout.
  • Even greater emphasis on human immunity.
  • Enhanced and revised treatment of the complement system, including new figures and icons to clarify concepts.
  • Increased emphasis on human genetics throughout the book.
  • Expanded and updated treatment of innate immunity, particularly the mucosal system.
