Product Description:
A brief, clear overview of the basic science and clinical aspects of immunology. For medical students and other health professionals. The basic science section is a clear presentation of innate and adaptive immunity, immune cells, antibodies and antigens, and other components of the immune system and their interactions. The clinical section clarifies hypersensitivity, autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, common diagnostic tests, vaccination, transplantation, and tumor immunology, all in 85 pages.

Table of Contents

By Louis Irwin
Not all that ridiculously simple. But, how I wish I had this book back when I was struggling with this subject. What a terrifically fascinating subject immunology is. Author is doing a great service with this book.
