This new book is the first comprehensive review of molecular mimicry. It offers an examination of the origins of the field, the current status, and the new developments that could lead to a better understanding of molecular mimicry and how infectious agents trick the host immune system to turn against a particular organ or group of organs in the human body. Focusing on studies that identify mimicry between infectious agents and host molecules, draws together research being done in a wide range of disciplines and academic departments.
