9780127520254: Dictionary of Immunology 4E, Fourth Edition (Oxford Monographs on Criminal Law and)

This is the fourth edition of a well-established dictionary of Immunology which has been completely revised and updatedto include key terms arising from new discoveries in the fast-developing fields of molecular and cellular immunology. It also contains brief descriptions of the most commonly used immunological techniques, as well as definitions, useful in clinical immunology, of immunodeficiency states, autoimmune diseases etc. Clear illustrations and tables have been added to illustrate the text where appropriate. The book should be readily understandable by anyone with a background in biology and many of the definitions should be understandable to the general reader, especially as terms are extensively cross-referenced.It should be useful to those attending immunological meeting or reading immunological journals, especially as scientists communicating to specialized audiences rarely define their terms.It will also be invaluable to undergraduate and postgraduate students in biological and medical sciences, since immunological methods, such as use of monoclonal antibodies, are in wide use throughout biology and medicine.
* Special Features:
* Radical revision, including addition of 30% new terms.

From the Back Cover:

The rapid progress in clinical and experimental immunological research, in addition to the radical change in immunological concepts in recent years, has been accompanied by similar developments in the technical vocabulary, and, as a consequence, frequent widespread confusion. The fourth edition of The Dictionary of Immunology will satisfy the needs of any biologist, clinician or biochemist who requires easy reference to current immunological usage.
This well-established work has been completely revised and updated to include key terms arising from new discoveries in the fast-developing fields of molecular and cellular immunology. The Dictionary of Immunology contains brief descriptions of the most commonly used immunological techniques, as well as definitions, useful in clinical immunology, of immunodeficiency states and autoimmune diseases. Clear illustrations and tables have been added to complement the text, and extensive cross-referencing is used to inform an integrated view.
The Dictionary will serve equally as a handy reference, a companion to other reference texts, or a spelling and fact checker for students, research scientists and those engaged in ancillary activities such as science journalists, and the curious lay reader.

Review:

"A very useful publication with excellent cross-referencing...It is the best of its kind currently available."
--AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL OF MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE
"Unquestionably, the editors have succeeded in providing accurate explanations which should be comprehensible to anyone with a minimum of biological knowledge."
--BRITISH MEDICAL BULLETIN
"Remarkably up-to-date. The definitions are succinct and accurate."
--THE TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT
"Contains a vast wealth of information, making it a veritable pocket encyclopedia. Especially laudable is the admirable presentation. Highly recommended to all with an interest in immunology, from the elementary biology student to the specialist."
--NEW SCIENTIST
"This book is certain to be a standard reference work for many years to come."
--MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE
