Immune Tolerance Research Developments
Emile B. Pontell
Nova Publishers, 2008 - Medical - 201 pages
Immune or immunological tolerance is the process by which the immune system does not attack an antigen. It occurs in three forms: central tolerance, peripheral tolerance and acquired tolerance. Central tolerance is immunological tolerance developed during T and B cell differentiation. Peripheral tolerance is immunological tolerance developed after T and B cells mature and enter the periphery. Acquired or induced tolerance is the immune system's tolerance for external antigens. This book presents the latest research from around the world.
