Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases: A Molecular and Genetic Approach


Primary immunodeficiency diseases, first recognized 60 years ago, are inherited disorders that affect human adaptive and innate immunity. In most cases, affected individuals experience recurrent infections, but they may also suffer from autoimmune diseases and malignancies.

This third edition of Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases provides readers with the historic and scientific background, clinical presentations, immunologic characteristics, and the molecular/genetic underpinnings of this rapidly enlarging class of diseases. With up-to-date diagnostic tools and therapeutic options — from prophylactic anti-infective measures to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and gene therapy — this volume will remain an authoritative resource on this increasingly important area.

Challenging Cases in Rheumatology and Diseases of the Immune System


Challenging Cases in Rheumatology and Diseases of the Immune System is the latest title in a growing collection of thought-provoking case-based titles from Massoud Mahmoudi, D.O., Ph.D.  Like his three preceding titles, Challenging Cases in Allergy and Immunology (2009), Challenging Cases in Allergic and Immunologic  Diseases of the Skin (2010), and Challenging Cases in Pulmonology (2011), this easy-to-read title presents the topic in a challenging and enjoyable case-based format.  Developed by 30 distinguished contributors, the book consists of six parts and 16 chapters, with each chapter presenting two cases.  The style of this title follows the previous books: each topic begins with an abstract, followed by a case presentation, working diagnosis, data, final diagnosis, and discussion.  In addition, to enhance a review of the subject and stimulate critical thinking, there are 5 to 10 multiple choice questions and answers in each chapter. Challenging Cases in Rheumatology and Diseases of the Immune System is an indispensable resource for all clinicians who care for patients with rheumatic and immunologic disorders.

A History of Modern Immunology: The Path Toward Understanding


By (author): Zoltan A. Nagy

A History of Modern Immunology: A Path Toward Understanding describes, analyzes, and conceptualizes several seminal events and discoveries in immunology in the last third of the 20th century, the era when most questions about the biology of the immune system were raised and also found their answers. Written by an eyewitness to this history, the book gives insight into personal aspects of the important figures in the discipline, and its data driven emphasis on understanding will benefit both young and experienced scientists.

This book provides a concise introduction to topics including immunological specificity, antibody diversity, monoclonal antibodies, major histocompatibility complex, antigen presentation, T cell biology, immunological tolerance, and autoimmune disease. This broad background of the discipline of immunology is a valuable companion for students of immunology, research and clinical immunologists, and research managers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

  • Contains the history of major breakthroughs in immunology featured with authenticity and insider details
  • Gives an insight into personal aspects of the players in the history of immunology
  • Enables the reader to recognize and select data of heuristic value which elucidate important facets of the immune system
  • Provides good examples and guidelines for the recognition and selection of what is important for the exploration of the immune system
  • Gives clear separation of descriptive and interpretive parts, allowing the reader to distinguish between facts and analysis provided by the author
