Description

Clinical Immunology not only introduces the reader to the human immune system, it also covers immunology from clinical manifestation to therapeutic approaches in a wide range of conditions. Each chapter describes an introduction, the clinical manifestations, the immunopathogenesis, diagnosis, lab tests and therapeutic approaches. The book guides clinicians, researchers and students to a better understanding of the matters of immunologic-based diseases that can lead to better decision-making for patients.Because of the growing knowledge regarding the function of immune system in health and disease conditions, clinicians, researchers and students increasingly require an exclusive scientific reference to guide them on matters of immunologic-based diseases. Accordingly, despite the existence of numerous high quality references in basic and cellular/molecular immunology which deeply explain different immunologic mechanisms, there is still a knowledge gap in the field of clinical immunology.

Key Features

  • Provides essentials, updates clinical knowledge regarding immune system diseases, and cover different aspects of clinical immunology, from immunopathogenesis and etiology to diagnosis and treatment
  • Introduces the most advanced approaches and laboratory tests as well as their interpretation in the diagnosis of immune system disorders
  • Focuses on the practical use of clinical immunology, from bedside to bench and vice versa

Readership

Students, Practitioners, Researchers, Scientists, Professors and all other academic natural and/or legal individuals could potentially benefit from this book based on their purpose of seeking information regarding immunologic diseases. Medical students, post graduate students of Immunology (MSc and PhD) and/or other majors which include immunology in their curriculum as well as Researchers and Scientists in the field of immunology, genetics, infectious diseases, an internal medicine could use this book for their everyday use matters
