Introduction to Clinical Immunology provides an introduction to clinical immunology, which is described as the application of immunological principles to achieve a better understanding of the mechanisms of human diseases and appropriate laboratory investigations.
This book discusses immunoglobulins, monoclonal immunoglobulins, IgE and atopic disease, and immune complexes. The antibody deficiency, defects of cell-mediated immunity, disorders of neutrophil function, and overview of autoimmune disease are also covered.
This publication is recommended for junior doctors in training, but is also valuable to senior clinical investigators in all disciplines who find themselves reluctantly obliged to acquire the rudiments of immunology in order to interpret important developments in their own fields.
