Progress in Basic and Clinical Immunology is a result of the 14th European Immunology Meeting - EFIS 2000, held in Poznan, Poland, on 23-27 September 2000. EFIS 2000 gathered over 1400 immunologists from all over the world. It was an exceptionally memorable meeting for a number of reasons: 1) it was held in the last year of the century and the millennium, thus provoking conclusions of past achievements of immunology and projections for the future; 2) it was held in Poland, a country that is a symbol of struggle for freedom for a large number of scientists originating from the 'Eastern Bloc' countries; and 3) EFIS celebrated its 25th anniversary at this occasion. This comprehensive volume contains 62 chapters grouped into 11 sections: T-cells, Immune Receptors, Antigen Presentation/Dendritic Cells, Cytokines, Immunodeficiencies, Autoimmunity, Allergy/Inflammation, Immunotherapy, Vaccines, Tumor Immunology, and Cancer Immunotherapy.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
The result of the 14th European Immunology Meeting, which was held in Poland in September of 2000, this volume contains 62 papers that were developed from abstracts presented at the meeting. Selected by scientists from the Polish institutions, the University School of Medical Sciences and the Institute for Human Genetics, the papers are mostly related to tumor immunology and immunotherapy. Other topics include T-cells, immune receptors, antigen presentation/dendritic cells, cytokines, immunodeficiencies, autoimmunity, allergy/inflammation, and vaccines. Annotation c.
