Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This reference combines the immunologic basis with the clinical aspects of diagnosing and treating allergic diseases in a highly visual format. The 27 chapters by medical experts discuss immunology and basic science (molecular biology techniques for the investigation of immune activation and immunologic dysfunction, immunoglobulin structure and function, the complement system, chemokines and their receptors, mast cell and basophil derived mediators, the eosinophil, aerobiology and aeroallergens, and laboratory techniques), as well as the various types of allergies and their management in the clinical situation. Edited by Lieberman (internal medicine and pediatrics) and Blaiss (clinical immunology and allergy), both of the U. of Tennessee College of Medicine. Illustrated with color images and charts. Oversize: 10x12.25<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
