Dendritic Cells, 2nd Edition is the new edition of the extremely successful book published in 1998. With the volume of literature on dendritic cells doubling every year, it is almost impossible to keep up. This book provides the most up-to-date synthesis of the literature, written by the very best authors. It is essential reading for any scientist working in immunology, cell biology, infectious diseases, cancer, transplantation, genetic engineering, or the pharmaceutical/biotechnology more

Review Text

"This is an excellent book that will serve as a valuable source of information for many researchers both in and outside the field of dendritic cell biology. The scope and range of information in this book make it a significant contribution to the scientific literature. The fact that this second edition was published only three years after the first edition speaks to the importance and vitality of the dendritic cell biology field." Alvin Telser for DOODY'S (2003) Praise for the First Edition "...represents the first book that attempts to draw together the exponential growth in our knowledge about this fundamental cell." -IMMUNOLOGY TODAY (March 2000)show more
