Description

This volume highlights the latest reviews of mechanisms and actions of the immune system and the host response to infection and inflammation.

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Covers cytokine functioning as influenced by the Janus protein tyrosine kinase family

  • Explores immunodeficiencies, including: @subbul:* Immunoglobulin deficiencies and B cells development
  • Glycosyl Phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor and Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH)
  • Investigates the links molecular pathology established between deficiencies in GPI-anchor synthesis and PNH
  • Includes the use of Multiple Antigen Peptides (MAPs) to induce protective immune response
  • Offers a timely update on Eosinophils' role in disease
  • Covers histology of Germinal center reaction of a spleen twelve days after primary immunization
  • Includes new research on cytotoxic T-lymphocytes
  • Presents the multiple roles of Nitric oxide (NO) in the inflammatory response

Readership

Researchers and graduate students in immunology, cell and molecular biology, and toxicology in academia, medicine, and industry.

Reviews

@qu:"Advances in Immunology must find itself among the most active volumes in the libraries of our universities and institutions." @source:--SCIENCE @qu:"Deserves a permanent place in biomedical libraries as an aid in research and in teaching." @source:--JOURNAL OF IMMUNOLOGICAL METHODS @qu:"A provocative and scholarly review of research." @source:--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION @qu:"Provides an extremely valuable source of reference and many stimulating ideas... the main repository of information in a rapidly developing subject." @source:--THE LANCET @qu:"Provides unrivalled value in both academic and fiscal terms and should be purchased by hard pressed librarians as a major priority to be jealously defended." @source:--JOURNAL OF MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY @qu:"The series which all immunologists need." @source:--THE PHARMACEUTICAL JOURNAL @qu:"A very valuable serial publication... no serious student of immunology can afford to be without it." @source:--ARCHIVES OF BIOCHEMISTRY AND BIOPHYSICS
