In the 11 years since this atlas first published, the immunology field has experienced an exponential increase in information. Besides the unprecedented advances in knowledge of cell receptors and signal transduction pathways, an avalanche of new information has been gleaned from contemporary research concerning cytokines and chemokines, with special reference to their structure and function.
Visually Enhances Definitions in the Language of Immunology
Now with more than 1300 illustrations, Atlas of Immunology
, Third Edition is the most thorough and up-to-date treatment of essentially all concepts needed to comprehend the complex science of immunology.
Completely revised and expanded, this third edition features:
Hundreds of new illustrations
Two new chapters - Immunophenotyping of Hematopoietic Malignances and Immunomodulators
An expanded chapter on the history of immunology
Additional human CD markers
Written in a highly readable, two-column format, this complete reference covers a wide array of subjects, with content ranging from photographs of field pioneers to illustrations of molecular structures of recently characterized cell receptors, chemokines, and cytokines. The atlas also addresses the major histocompatability complex molecules, immunoglobulins, hematopoietic cells in leukemia, and molecules of related interest to immunologists. You won't find another publication anywhere that matches the breadth or detail of illustrated immunological concepts. Praise for previous editions:
This heavyweight offering could be a vade mecum for the infectious disease researcher. It covers the whole of immunology from A bloodgroup to zymosan in easy-to-read bites.
-Brian Henderson, University College London, Microbiology Today
Definitions and descriptions appear in every textbook, but few, if any, are as complete as what is presented in this book...a useful book to have on the shelf when you come across a word or phrase for which you need a brief and accurate definition...useful for definitions of obscure phrases.
-Marion C. Cohen, Ph.D., Doody's Review Service
A beautifully illustrated and appealing discussion of the history of Immunology ... concise, descriptive and up to date discussions of subject matter. Illustrations, both diagrams and photomicrographs are abundant and clear... the division of the text into an encyclopedic form and the comprehensive index make this book an extremely useful reference...clinical and research immunologists will delight in the book as the showpiece of a p
