Clinical Immunobiology, Volume 1 is a 12-chapter introductory text to the several aspects of immunobiology field. The opening chapters describe the structural and functional development, as well as the molecular and cellular nature of the immune apparatus. The subsequent chapters deal with the relation of structure to function in the lymphoid system and its molecules. These topics are followed by discussions of the fundamental issues of tolerance, inflammation, immunological mediators and amplifiers, and immunogenetics. The remaining chapters explore the immunobiological aspects of transplantation, allergy, tumor immunity, autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, and immunosuppression. This book will be of great value to clinical immunobiologists, practicing physicians, researchers, and medical and biology students.
