Overview

Cellular and Molecular Immunology takes a comprehensive yet straightforward approach to the latest developments in this active and fast-changing field. Drs. Abul K. Abbas, Andrew H. Lichtman, and Shiv Pillai present sweeping updates in this new edition to cover antigen receptors and signal transduction in immune cells, mucosal and skin immunity, cytokines, leukocyte-endothelial interaction, and more. In print and online with additional resources, this reference is the up-to-date and readable textbook you need to master the complex subject of immunology.

  • Access to www.studentconsult.com and Evolve provides informative lecture slides based on images in the book, fully modified for incorporation into your lesson plans. Other online features include searchable text, an image bank, self-assessment questions, and animations.
  • Recognize the clinical relevance of the immunology through discussions of the implications of immunologic science for the management of human disease.
  • Grasp the details of experimental observations that form the basis for the science of immunology at the molecular, cellular, and whole-organism levels and draw the appropriate conclusions.
  • Stay abreast of the latest advances in immunology and molecular biology through extensive updates that cover cytokines, innate immunity, leukocyte-endothelial interactions, signaling, costimulation, and more.
  • Visualize immunologic processes more effectively through a completely revised art program with redrawn figures, a brighter color palette, and more 3-dimensional art.
  • Find information more quickly and easily through a reorganized chapter structure and a more logical flow of material.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marion C. Cohen, PhD (SUNY Downstate Medical Center)
Description: Since immunology is an ever-changing discipline, this seventh edition of a basic immunology textbook includes significant new material. The previous edition was published in 2007 with an updated version in 2010.
Purpose: From its first edition, the authors' goal was to provide an up-to-date, easy-to-read textbook of immunology. A readable textbook is always welcome and one that is current is equally important.
Audience: The authors have written the book primarily for medical students, but it is also suitable for courses for dental students, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates. It also could serve as a reference for residents and fellows, as well as for physicians who want to update their level of knowledge of immunology.
Features: of the most important changes is the addition of chapter focused on immune responses in mucosal tissues and other specialized sites. Treatment of this topic has been quite improved compared to what was previously available. Instead of a separate chapter on cytokines, these mediators are now discussed in context. A section in the appendixes summarizes the characteristics of some of the interleukins and TNF family members. Autoimmunity and tolerance are now combined into one chapter. With the increase in information about T cells, the information on the roles of different subsets has been expanded. The figures have been reworked so that they now look three-dimensional. The Student Consult online features that come with the purchase of the book include access to the full text online, animations, self-assessment questions, searching features, and the ability to add notes and bookmarks.
Assessment: Each edition of this book has shown improvement over its predecessor. The authors appear to be responsive to specific criticisms they receive. Several books are written at this level and are suitable for students. While each instructor may have his/her specific preference, this book is one that should be particularly suitable for immunology courses.
