Handbook of Mucosal Immunology
Researchers have recently made tremendous progress int he area of mucosal immunology, greatly increasing our understanding of the common mucosal immune system, mucosal infections and oral immunization. however, this research has not previously been mage available in a single work. Handbook of Mucosal Immunology covers the entire spectrum of mucosal immunity and is organized in two main sections to present the basic biology of the common mucosal immune system and the immune responses of the mucosae. Virtually all chapters have been authored by the original investigators responsible for key observations on which current concepts are based. This handbook will be an invaluable resource for a diverse group of both researchers and practicing clinicians. Molecular biologists, immunologists, veterinarians, public health workers, physicains in specialities from paediatrics to pulmonology, and graduate students of mucosal immunology will all find this handbook the most complete work on the subject.
