    In autoimmune conditions (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis), the immune systems attacks the host itself, producing severe, debilitating disease. Immune tolerance ensures that the immune system generates T- and B-cell populations that react to foreign antigens rather than to endogenous molecules. This book covers all aspects of central and peripheral tolerance, including positive and negative selection in the thymus, mechanisms that produce clonal anergy, the role of dendritic cells in antigen presentation, and the suppression of autoreactive cells by regulatory T-cells in the periphery. Mechanisms that are defective in autoimmune diseases, and therapeutic strategies targeting them, are also described.
