Given the fact that pathogens and hosts are in continuous arm race for survivability, it is primarily the host immune system that determines the ultimate fate. Predominantly, it functions to prevent and contain multiple pathogens, both of intra- or extra-cellular nature, and eliminate them. Immune system is not vital for physiological function of the systems; however, the photobiotic environment is required to be achieved for survivability. It is this acknowledgement of the immune system centrality that is proudly dealt and published in this textbook, Fundamentals Immunological Concepts, forging a greater level of granularity in basic molecular and cellular components of the immune responses and to lay foundations to prevention of infectious disease.
The book project kick-start the literature elegantly from fundamental concepts to advances approaches in immune responses – providing a complete guide for fresh and fully annotated survey of the literature. While teaching immunology is counterfeiting, it proposes an astonishing area of biology. To bring true flavour and joy for new students of immunology, the book offers assembly of outstanding and experienced team members with up-to-date information on this rapidly evolving area of research. The book also offers versatility in presentation, elegance in connectivity and fluency in writing – all standard benchmarks of critical thinking and pedagogies are met. These quality features are exceptional to Fundamentals Immunological Concepts and thus overweight on pre-existing books of this kind.
