Basic and Clinical Immunology (Google eBook)
Within this one volume both basic science and clinical immunology are demystified for the medical and other health sciences student. The basic immunological processes are described first, with a level of detail restricted to what is appropriate for medical (and similar) curricula. In the second part of the book, immunological mechanisms behind major diseases of the various body systems are explained. Throughout the text clinical details are highlighted and more in-depth material is differentiated from the main text.
