This important volume offers an integrated view of the principal aspects of immune response to all types of infectious agents, with an emphasis on the immune system as a host defense system. The various infectious agents and diseases are integrated under general topics rather than treated in separate chapters. The book illustrates how the dialogue between different types of pathogens and the host immune system, as well as the cross talk between the different members of the immune response, works. is valuable reading for microbiologists interested in pathogenesis and immunology; clinicians with an interest in immunology, virology, vaccine development, infectious diseases, bacteriology, parasitology, pathology, and cell biology; and immunologists wanting to expand their knowledge of infectious diseases and their causative agents.
