The book provides in-depth coverage of the immunological aspects of kidney transplantation, the immunosuppressive agents and protocols, kidney donation, post-transplant issues, and financial aspects of transplantation. Chapters on transplant immunobiology and histocompatibility are presented in easy comprehensible way. The surgical content of the book could have been more extensive.
