The third international workshop on leucocyte typing antigens reports the results of collaborative experiments involving over 800 antibodies. This volume contains the first and only complete account of the experiments and the subsequent analyses, which produced a careful description of fiftyhuman leucocyte antigens, twenty-four of them fully characterized for the first time. Antigens specific for or shared by T-Cells, B-Cells, activated lymphocytes, myeloid cells and platelets are featured. The papers detail their distribution, molecular structure and function, and discuss the rolethat the antigens may play in investigating and understanding pathological processes, particularly in leukemias and lymphomas.

About the author (1987)

TONY MCMICHAEL is a medical graduate from Adelaide, South Australia. He is currently Professor of Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK. His research interests, over 30 years, have encompassed the social aetiology of mental health problems, the causes of occupational diseases, studies of diet and cancer, and environmental epidemiology. During the 1990s he developed a strong interest in the assessment of population health risks from global environmental change. His current research activities include studies of heatwave impacts on urban mortality patterns, of solar ultraviolet radiation and immune disorders, of dietary factors in breast cancer, and the mathematical modelling of future climate change impacts on malaria transmissibility. Between 1994 and 1998 he convened the review by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (Second Assessment Report) of potential health impacts of climate change. He is doing likewise for the IPCC's Third Assessment Report (1999-2001). He is a member of WHO's newly established Advisory Committee on Globalisation and Health, and a Council member of the newly-formed World Health Policy Forum (focusing on food and health policy).
