Advances in Immunology presents current developments as well as comprehensive reviews in immunology. Articles address the wide range of topics that constitue immunology, including molecular and cellular activation mechanisms, phylogeny and molecular evolution, and clinical modalities. Edited and authored by the foremost scientists in the field, each volume provides up-to-date information and directions for future research.Immunology is vital to the understanding of infection and disease. Application of this information may lead to resistance and cures for higher animals and humans.


Graduate students, researchers, and clinicians in immunology and cell and molecular biology.
