Description

Human Anti-Human Gammaglobulins: Their Specificity and Functions is a written record of the seventeenth volume of the Wenner-Gren International Symposium Series, which aims to define natural mechanisms giving rise to human anti-immunoglobulins, the interactions between anti-Igs and Ig determinants and its effects. The book is divided according to the six sessions that were held during the symposium. Topics include basic experimental data; determinants of IgG revealed by human antiglobulins; anti-gammaglobulin factors in tissues; anti-gammaglobulins interacting with immunoglobulins in solution; anti-gammaglobulin—cellular interactions; and a special lecture. The text is recommended for medical doctors, especially immunologists, who want to know more about the human anti-human gammaglobulin, its origin, functions, and the discoveries about it.
