Description:Janeways Immunobiology is intended for undergraduate and graduate courses and for medical students, but its depth and scope also make it a useful resource for train- ees and practicing immunologists. Its narrative takes the host's perspective in the struggle with the microbial worlda viewpoint distinguishing immunology from microbiology. Other facets of immunology, such as auto- immunity, immunode ciencies, allergy, transplant rejec- tion, and new aspects of cancer immunotherapy are also covered in depth, and a companion book, Case Studies in Immunology, provides clinical examples of immune- related disease. In Immunobiology, symbols in the margin indicate where the basic immunological concepts related to Case Studies are discussed.
