Praise for the Series: "The series which all immunologists need." --The Pharmaceutical Journal "Advances in Immunology must find itself among the most active volumes in the libraries of our universities and institutions." --Science "Deserves a permanent place in biomedical libraries as an aid in research and in teaching." --Journal of Immunological Methods

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features: @bul:* The role of CD40 and its ligand, gp39, as central players in the regulation of B cell growth and differentiation

  • Prolactin, growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-I as full-fledged immunological growth and differentiation factors
  • Transcription factors of functionally mutant mice are highly relevant to understanding hemopoiesis and B cell genesis in vivo HIV infection of xenotransplanted mice compared with natural HIV and SIV infections
  • The expression and role of cytokines in Rheumatoid Arthritis and in seronegative arthritis
  • The functions of the surrogate light chain in B cell development
  • Mechanisms that regulate cytokine activity and the generation and function of sCR as cytokine anatogonists and/or cytokine "carriers" in vivo
  • Potential transducing molecules involved in signaling processes and which mark the difference between signaling through IL-2R and IL-4R
