During the last decade there has been increased interest in the role of eosinophils in parasitic diseases, allergy, and other areas of clinical medicine. At the same time, cell biology and biochemical studies have shown how eosinophils respond, take part in inflammation, damage parasites, and can often harm normal cells, especially in the heart. This book describes what is known about these blood cells. Each section begins with a general review for the non-specialist reader and continues with a detailed assessment of current research, identifying areas where new knowledge has been acquired. Over 2,000 references are included, making this the most thorough review of the literature on these cells currently available.
