"The book is written for anyone who is looking for specific facts relating to aspects of the immune system that might not be easily accessible. The authors are well known immunologists." --Marion C. Cohen, PhD, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-NJMS for DOODY'S

"...most useful as a good, quick desk reference for immunologists to buy for their laboratories or offices." --E-STREAMS, August 2005
