Review quote

Praise for the 1st edition "The quality of the volume is exactly as would be expected from the track records of the editorial team. It is superb. There are more than 100 contributors, from 17 countries, 4 continents; they form the right mix of acknowledged experts, who have breadth and depth of experience and knowledge, and clearly explain their work at the leading edges of the field... A readable book that is not just a mine of information, but offers workers in each subset of our complex discipline the opportunity to gain insight into and understanding of the issues being addressed by other groups. Such cross-fertilization will surely be an invaluable stimulus to new lines of interdisciplinary research." -MUCOSAL IMMUNOLOGY UPDATE.
