Description

Immunology brings together the scientific basis and clinical aspects of the acquisition and progression of the host response to infectious disease, providing comprehensive coverage of this fast-moving field. It is included in this tenth edition of Topley & Wilson's Microbiology and Microbial Infections as a stand-alone volume for the first time. Arranged under the topics of innate immunity and inflammation, soluble mediators, acquired immunity, infection and immunity, immunopathology, and immunodeficiency and vaccines, Immunology allows the reader to identify specific topics related to infectious diseases, and also to find information on the basic mechanisms underlying immunity. Chapters include information on the clinical issues of immunology as they relate to immunopathology and immunodeficiency, and on the different aspects of vaccination and vaccine development. The international authorship and breadth of coverage ensure that Immunology will be an unrivalled resource for all members of the immunology community and associated microbiological disciplines, including research scientists, clinical laboratory scientists, infectious disease specialists and other clinicians. In addition, Immunology will be an invaluable reference for students and teachers of immunology.
