Abbas, Abul K. and Andrew H. Lichtman.

Elsevier Saunders

Pathologists Abbas (U.of California-San Francisco) and Lichtman (Harvard U.) update their textbook for an introductory course in immunology, for both medical and undergraduate students. They incorporate recent developments in the specialty, and continue to hone the presentation to make it as useful as possible for both students and teachers. Among the topics are innate immunity, cell-mediated immune responses, effector mechanisms of humoral immunity, immunological tolerance and autoimmunity, immune responses against tumors and transplants, and congenital and acquired immunodeficiencies. A PIN code under a scratch-off pad allows readers access to associated resources online. Four previous editions are cited, between 2001 and 2009.
