Overview

Describes the immunological aspects of blood transfusion medicine, examining the immuno-chemistry of blood group antigens, the immune destruction of cells, correlations between blood groups and disease, and the effect transfusion-induced retroviral infection has on immune response.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul A. Greenberger, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book reviews five major subject areas in immunohematology and transfusion medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to update transfusion scientists on the immunobiology of transfusion medicine and to encourage more cooperative research by immunologists. This is a worthy goal, but the book actually serves to provide a collection of knowledge in this multidisciplinary field.
Audience: The book exceeds the stated purposes by providing detailed chapters in areas of immunochemistry of antigens, association of blood groups with diseases, detection of red cell antibodies, aspects of immune destruction of cells, and effects of transfusions on the recipient.
Features: The author states that the book is for transfusion scientists. I think this book would also be appropriate for hematologists, transfusion medicine specialists, blood service directors, and immunologists.
Assessment: The authors are authorities in their respective areas. The figures and tables are nicely done and sufficient in number. The references are extremely complete and current with 1990 and l991 citations. The book's appearance is appropriate. The chapters have been superbly written, and difficult areas are understandable. The text contains a wealth of information. The range of chapters is from immunochemistry of the red cell membrane, to adhesion molecules, to physical-chemical relationships and thermodynamics of antibody-red cell interactions, to refractoriness of platelet transfusions. The medical/hospital library should stock this text. It should be purchased by basic scientists in immunohematology and immunochemistry as well as by specialists in transfusion medicine, hematology, blood banking, and immunology.

Transfusion
...its conceptual approach and unique format will make it very popular.
Immunology Today
...a valuable summary of the theoretical side of blood transfusion and immunology.
New England Journal of Medicine
The beauty of this book is the fresh light it sheds on old transfusion issues.... "...this book is a fine investment for those who want to stay as current in transfusion medicine as a textbook allows.
Booknews
Updates blood transfusion scientists on the immunobiology of transfusion medicine, covering: immunochemistry of antigens on erythrocytes, leukocytes, and platelets; associations of blood groups with disease; red cell antibodies; immune destruction of cells; and the effect of transfusion on the immune response. Also intended to focus attention on the fact that the immunobiological models provided by the immune reactions of red cells, white cells, and platelets are understudied. Annotation c.
