Summary
  • "This edition of the Handbook of Human Immunology begins with an overview of the immune system. It then includes a discussion on statistics in immunological testing, delves into clinically relevant immunological parameters, and clarifies the basic principles underlying immune system assays, and applications and interpretations of immune tests
  • This new edition provides several new tables including two that cover more than double the number of recognized "clusters of differentiation" (CD's) on the surface of leukocytes and associated cells than the first edition of the Handbook. New chapters include practical discussions on the statistics of immunological testing, guidelines for CD4 testing in HIV infection, measurements of cytokines, characterizations of the T cell repertoire, and a comprehensive treatise of immunological components and autoimmune disease in the gastrointestinal tract, among other up-to-date innumological tests and diseases."--Jacket
