The principles, use, practical aspects, complications, and potential advances of transfusion medicine are described in this concise textbook. The second ed. contains new chapters on stem cell processing, recombinant antibodies/proteins, transfusion in the tropics, design of clinical trials, and advances since 1975 and into the future. The text is clearly organized, with many headers and frequent use of bulleted lists, making it useful for rapid access of information. The 39 chapters were written by specialists, the majority of whom are based in the UK, though some are in France, Italy, and the US. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
