Description: Here's a readable and concise introduction to the workings of the human immune system, with emphasis on clinical relevance. The format makes learning easy with short, easy-to-read chapters, color tables, key point summaries, and review questions in every chapter.Relates basic science to clinical disorders through clinical cases for better application in a real-world setting.Includes a full Glossary to keep you on the cutting edge of immunologic terminology.Includes appendices summarizing the features of CD Molecules, a handy Glossary, and Clinical Cases that test your understanding of how the immune system functions in health and disease. Illustrated with beautiful full-color artwork for enhanced visual learning. 1. New discussion of the inflammasome and how it recognizes damaged cells, crystals and foreign materials, with a figure. Discussion of its relevance to human diseases, including type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis. 2. Revised discussion of the innate immune response and families of microbe-sensing receptors. 3. New information on "Th17" cells, and their development and roles in host defense and disease, with a new figure. 4. Updated information on T-dependent antibody responses, new discussion of follicular helper T cells and the germinal center reaction. 1 or 2 new figures. 5.
