Essentials of Immunology and Serology is a straightforward text that studies the way an immune response is generated by the interaction of the immune system's components and how these responses relate to infectious diseases, autoimmunity, tumors, hypersensitivity and transplantation. Systematic presentations of infectious diseases include a description of the caustic agent, basic clinical manifestations and pathology, associated immunological responses, immunization status and lab diagnosis. Reflecting current trends in immunological testing the text covers the application and interpretation of a wide array of medical test kits. Essentials of Immunology and Serology meets the immunology guidelines of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
