This book covers the core of both basic science and clinical immunology as required by medical students. Immunology is an inherently difficult subject and most competing titles include far too much complex scientific detail for most medical courses. This book covers just the core of the subject essential for understanding the clinical importance of the immune system and diseases caused by its malfunction.
