Publisher Comments:

Anyone pursuing a career in the medical laboratory will want to have this comprehensive, yet straightforward, text. Essentials of Immunology and Serology doesn't just study the components of the immune system, it covers the way in which these components combine to generate the immune response and how these responses relate to infectious diseases, autoimmunity, tumors, hypersensitivity and transplantation. Covers the application and interpretation of a wide array of medical test kits, unlike other texts that focus only on one outdated procedure. An ideal resource for users pursuing medical lab careers that meets the immunology guidelines of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. Key Words: immonology, serology, laboratory, immune system, autoimmunity, clinical pathology,

Book News Annotation:

This textbook presents a comprehensive approach to the study of immune response, the immune system's components, and infectious diseases, autoimmunity, tumors, hypersensitivity, and transplantation. Systematic coverage of infectious diseases includes a description of caustic agents, basic clinical manifestations, and pathology, associated immunological responses, immunization status, and lab diagnosis. Stanley teaches at St. George's University School of Medicine.
