9780323035767: Immunology for Medical Students, Updated Edition: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access, 1e (Nairn, Immunology for Medical Students)

Presenting a unique balance between science and clinical relevance, this new text is a concise, well-illustrated overview of immunology for students. Focusing on what medical students need to know, it fills the niche for a reader-friendly, patient-oriented text in this challenging field. Clinical boxes include real patient scenarios, making the textbook interesting and relevant. Experimental detail is kept to a minimum, used only where it helps the student understand difficult concepts. It also provides a superb review of major components in immunological interaction: important molecules, specific immune response and role of innate response in complementing specific response, and immunity to microbes.
