Includes bibliographical references.
Overview of the immune system -- Cells, organs, and microenvironments of the immune system --
Receptors and signaling: B and T receptors -- Receptors and signaling: cytokine and chemokine -- Innate immunity -- The complement system -- The organization and expression of lymphocyte receptor genes -- The major histocompatibility complex and antigen presentation -- T-cell development -- B-cell development -- T-cell activation, differentiation, and memory -- B-cell activation, differentiation, and memory generation -- Effector responses: cell and antibody-mediated immunity -- The immune responses in time and space -- Allergy, hypersensitivities, and chronic inflammation -- Tolerance, autoimmunity, and transplantation -- Infectious diseases and vaccines -- Immunodeficiency disorders -- Cancer and the immune system -- Experimental systems and methods.
Presenting current concepts in an experimental context, Kuby Immunology has been thoroughly updated to include a new chapter on innate immunity, a capstone chapter on immune responses in time and space, and many new focus boxes drawing attention to exciting clinical, evolutionary and experimental connections that help bring the material to life.
