Item description for Antigen Presenting Cells: From Mechanisms to Drug Development by Harald Kropshofer...
This novel, multidisciplinary handbook highlights recent evidence that antigen presenting cells (APCs) are not only key players in the initiation or prevention of an antigen-specific T lymphocyte-mediated adaptive immune response, but also critical regulators and integrators in the interplay between our innate and adaptive immune system. Structured in a clear way to allow access to a very broad readership, the book is written from the viewpoint of a biochemist, immunologist, and scientist with experience in drug development. It covers all cell types involved in antigen presentation, providing the latest immunological facts with a focus on drug development. Backed by a glossary explaining all important technical terms, this short but comprehensive reference covers basic introductory aspects right up to details for advanced specialists.
