Presents the major theoretical aspects and experimental findings supporting the network theory of immune response. Explains the concept of regulatory idiotopes and their roles in physiological and pathological phenemona and then gives practical applications of idiotype concepts to the preparation of vaccines, to understanding the basis of autoimmune diseases, to cancer therapy, and to the study of receptors for hormones, vitamins, and other biologically active substances. The information contained in this text will be valuable to any student or specialist who is devoted to understanding the relationship between the immune system and other systems in the body.
