A few decades back, Immunology was known as a science which deals with the body's defense mechanism against invading pathogens or internal invaders like tumors but now it has emerged as a new discipline by itself with the advent of immunological techniques. The impact of Immunology and immunological techniques on advances in medicine, Biotechnology and other fields has profound effect on our future.
The book, 'Modern Concepts of Immunology' contains latest information related to immunodiagnostic and immunotherapeutic techniques for novel emerging diseases along with the in-depth information about classical topics of Immunology in a very simple and lucid manner. With the coverage of all important topics of Immunology, this well-illustrated Book would serve the purpose of both undergraduate and post- graduate students of Zoology, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Medical Lab Technology and also for those preparing for competitive exams.
The book has been designed in a systematic manner such that a reader having basic knowledge of Biology and Chemistry can understand the subject with ease. Colorful illustrations and photographs would help in the comprehension of key concept. Each chapter is supplemented with summary, description of important terminologies and multiple-choice questions with answers. The last chapter on immunological techniques will help motivate the readers towards laboratory work.
The Book has been organized into twenty-eight chapters and each chapter has been written by different authors having sound knowledge of the subject.
