Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Roy Patterson, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is structured into two parts: the first is on basic features of the immune response and the second is on features of the allergic response.
Purpose: This third volume in the Clinical Allergy and Immunologyseries focuses on the basic immune response and the allergic immune response.
Audience: The audience is the medical community in general, particularly those physicians dealing with allergy and clinical immunology.
Features: The 14 chapters cover the important general aspects of the immune response and the specific features of the IgE antibody response. The references are appropriate and current.
Assessment: This is a useful scientific review of the basic science of the immune response and the state-of-the-art knowledge of IgE antibodies, their activities and interactions with other cells of the immune system.

Booknews
An examination of IgE-mediated immune responses within the context of the current knowledge of immune mechanisms. The volume is divided into two parts. Part I deals with the essential ingredients of immune responsiveness and covers the molecular biology of T- and B-cell differentiation and activation, the molecular genetics of the major histocompatibility complex, and antigen processing and presentation. Part II provides an expanded look at how these processes give rise to an IgE-mediated immune response and how the unique properties of IgE, its cellular receptor, and the cells that bear this receptor render this molecule a potent inflammatory activator. It also deals with how this information can be harnessed to develop more rational treatment strategies for allergic disease. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
