The Immune Response to Infection / Edition 1

by Stefan H. E. Kaufmann
 

ISBN-10: 1555815146

ISBN-13: 9781555815141

Pub. Date: 11/30/2010

Publisher: ASM Press

Examines the mechanisms of both the innate and adaptive immune systems as they relate to infection and disease.

  • Explores the underlying mechanisms of immunity and the many sequelae of host-pathogen interactions, ranging from the sterile eradication of the invader, to controlled chronic infection, to pathologic corollaries of the host-pathogen crosstalk.

Overview

Examines the mechanisms of both the innate and adaptive immune systems as they relate to infection and disease.

  • Explores the underlying mechanisms of immunity and the many sequelae of host-pathogen interactions, ranging from the sterile eradication of the invader, to controlled chronic infection, to pathologic corollaries of the host-pathogen crosstalk.
  • Discusses the pathogenesis of certain autoimmune disorders and cancers that are induced by infectious agents but then become independent of the infection process.
  • Serves as a resource for immunologists, molecular microbiologists, infectious disease clinicians, researchers, and students.
