Description:

Immunology: A Short Course, Sixth Edition introduces all the critical topics of modern immunology in clear and succinct yet comprehensive fashion. The authors offer a uniquely balanced coverage of classical and contemporary approaches, basic and clinical aspects. As with the previous editions, the strength of the text is in a complete review of modern immunology without burdening the reader with excessive data or theoretical discussions. Each chapter is divided into short, self-contained units that address key topics illustrated by uniformly drawn, full-color illustrations, many brand new to this edition. The sixth edition of this successful textbook newly covers: Toll-like receptors, their ligands and intracellular activation pathways The key role of activation induced cytidine deaminase (AID) in somatic hypermutation and class switch recombination. The autoimmune regulator ( AIRE) gene in self-tolerance and autoimmunity T and B cell activation and the immunological synapse, as well as characterization and mechanisms of action of T regulatory cells Praise for the previous edition: "This book is clearly a precious resource for undergraduate, graduate and medical students alike...For those who need an introduction to the fascinating world of immunology, this book should most certainly spark the interest. " ANNALS OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING "...an excellent beginner's guide...the authors have done a terrific job of providing an overview of the field." YALE JOURNAL OF BIOLOGY AND MEDICINE
