About the book
TEXTBOOK OF IMMUNOLOGY includes recent advance that have been made in innate and acquired immune response, mucosal immune system, T and B-cell maturation, activation and development, role of HLA in autoimmune disease, immune evasion and tolerance by tumors, pathology associated with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
This book will be helpful for the students and researcher in understanding the basics and concepts of immunology.
Discusses various strategies in production of vaccines against pathogens with a newer approach
• Tumor immunology lists newly discovered mechanisms of evasion of immune response and
tolerance to immune response
• Autoimmune disorders covers recent observations of role of HLA haplotypes in predisposition to disease
• Immune response to disease has been covered in greater detail with recently found evidences
