Summarizes the latest research in the field, with particular emphasis on molecular mechanisms involved in lymphocyte traffic, for scientists, clinicians, and students. Subjects include the role of homing to mucosal tissue, adhesion molecules, and chemokines in regulation of lymphocyte and leukocyte migration, roles of integrins in the interactions of lymphocytes with intestinal mucosa, lymphocyte trafficking through the central nervous system, and implications for tumor immunotherapy. Includes bandw drawings. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
