Concepts in Immunology and Immunotherapeutics

By (author) Smith, Blaine T.

The book is designed for students new to the field of immunology and to serve, also, as a reference for those already practicing. The text therefore begins with basic concepts in immunology and then covers current clinical applications in the field of pharmacy.The book is divided into eleven chapters. Chapters one through four present a cursory coverage of the complex topics of basic Immunology. Chapter five, with its topic of Inflammatory Diseases and Autoimmunity, begins the transition from basic Immunology to applied Immunology. Chapters six through eleven discuss topics seen in clinical practice, where the application of Immunodiagnosis and Immunotherapy is becoming more of an every day experience for pharmacists, even those who do not consider themselves to be in a "clinical" setting. These chapters include the immunological background and current treatment practices for infectious diseases, two chapters focused specifically on HIV/AIDS, transplantation, and cancer. The information should be of interest to all health-care professionals, especially those whose practice settings include patients in these categories.For instructors, learning objectives and self-assessment questions are included to enhance the learning experience of their students.
