The use of intravenous human antibodies in the treatment of primary immunodeficiencies is well recognized. However, it is now evident that they also have therapeutic potential for a wide range of other clinical disorders. This book describes the use of human antibodies in the management of secondary (virus-induced) immunodeficiencies, neonatal and perinatal infections, and autoimmunity. Insight into their mechanism of action is also provided.
Immunologists and clinicians in pediatrics, immunodeficiency, transplantation, infectious disease, and autoimmunity.
