Item description for Immunology for Pharmacy Students by Wei-Chiang Shen...
Responding to the clear need for an immunology text written with the pharmacist and pharmaceutical scientist in mind, this volume highlights issues of particular relevance to pharmacy practice, including hypersensitivity reactions to natural allergens and pharmaceutical agents. Core immunological issues, such as congenital immunodeficiency disorders and those caused by pathogens such as in AIDS, are thoroughly discussed. Also highlighted is the impact of biotechnology on immunology and the development of immunopharmaceutical agents. Special attention is given to clinically related issues, such as immunotherapy in cancer, immune disorders, and organ transplantation. Immunodiagnostic agents used professionally in hospitals as well as OTC immunodiagnostics are covered. Appendices list all immunotherapeutic agents that have been developed or are still under development. Each chapter ends with a series of self-assessment questions and/or illustrative case studies which will be of use to students for exam preparation and revision.
