Review quote

This is one of the best reviews of transplantation I havehad the pleasure of reading. With its thorough collection of topicsand its illustrations, it is a definite must read for those who arestarting their training or spending a limited amount of time on atransplant service. (Doody s, 19 April2013) This is a superbly produced small book with marvellousillustrations, and I am literally amazed how much information ispresented in approximately 100 pages. The illustrations have beenvery carefully done and enhance the explanations in the textextremely well. The chapters range from a history oftransplantation through organ donation and preservation; theimmunology of organ transplantation; immunosuppression;complications of immunosuppression, and kidney, pancreas, liver,intestinal, and lung transplantations, finishing up with briefreviews of composite tissue transplantation andxenotransplantation. This is the ideal book to give to nurses or residents rotatingthrough a transplantation unit or to scientists working in tissuetyping or microbiology and virology with an interest intransplantation. Obviously, for those who stay in the field, theywill need more in-depth information from the larger texts, but as astarter book, I have seen nothing better than this extremely goodpresentation. Each transplantation unit should have half a dozen orso available for those I have referred to above. (Peter J.Morris , Transplantation journal, 2012)
