by SK Mohanty, K Sai Leela, P Veerendra Kumar Reddy

This book discusses various topics of basic and applied immunology with the help of illustrative graphics and colored diagrams, providing important details on the subject. Topics discussed in detail include a short history of immunology, host-microbe relationship and disease process, immunity, antigen, antigen recognition molecules, antigen-antibody reactions, complement system, cells and tissues of the immune system, and immune response. Other topics discussed include hypersensitivity reactions, autoimmunity, immunodeficiency disorders, tumor immunology, transplantation immunology, immunohematology, immunoprophylaxis vaccines, and immunity in parasitic, viral and bacterial infections. The inclusion of host parasite relationship in the book provides students with basic knowledge about the determinants of pathogenicity before the study of immune response produced against them.
