Description

Immunity, Cancer, and Chemotherapy focuses on the interference of drugs on antibody response and transplantation immunity.
The selection first offers information on the effects of immunosuppressive drugs on cellular changes after antigenic stimulation and specialized cell function in the lymphoid and reticuloendothelial cell series. Topics include effects of immunosuppressive drugs on the sensitization process; cellular changes in lymphoid tissue following sensitization; and demonstration of differences in antigen handling among cells of the reticuloendothelial system. The text also takes a look at allogeneic inhibition and its possible relation to cell-bound immunity in vitro and the effects of immunosuppressive drugs at various stages of differentiation of immunologically competent cells.
The publication examines a study of antibody-containing cells in the course of immunization and cellular differentiation during immune responses studied with electron microscope and radioautography. The text also elaborates on ambiguity in the translation of genetic code into proteins, induced by aminoglycoside antibiotics and immunosuppressive agents and cellular kinetics of immune response.
The selection is a dependable source of information for readers interested in effects of drugs on antibody response and transplantation immunity.
