Description

Immunology and Immunotechnology is an authoritative and comprehensive textbook aimed at students of biotechnology; it conforms to the syllabi of the major universities offering this subject.

It would be equally useful as a text in courses in biochemistry, microbiology, and certain other disciplines of biology. The book provides in-depth coverage of topics such as lymphocyte activation, cytokines, immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes, complement, major histocompatibility complex, transplantation, tumour immunology, hypersensitivity, immunodeficiency, and AIDS. Separate chapters deal with assays for antigen–antibody reactions, vaccines, and the various techniques in immunotechnology. The book covers the latest technologies and techniques, and is well-illustrated with over 250 illustrations. Written in a simple yet lucid style, it provides the reader with a clear understanding of the fundamental concepts of immunology.
