Στην παρούσα τέταρτη έκδοση του βιβλίου παρουσιάζονται οι βασικές αρχές οργάνωσης και λειτουργίας του ανοσιακού συστήματος, η φυσική και ειδική ανοσία, εμπλουτισμένες από σημαντικές εξελίξεις που προέκυψαν μέσα από νεότερα πειραματικά δεδομένα. Αναλύονται οι μηχανισμοί και ο χρόνος εμφάνισης των αντιδράσεων υπερευαισθησίας, καθώς αποτελούν τη βάση της γνώσης για τα νοσήματα που εξελίσσονται μέσω αυτών. Το ειδικό μέρος του συγγράμματος περιλαμβάνει την επικαιροποιημένη ανάλυση των ανοσολογικών μηχανισμών και των ειδικών θεραπειών των νοσημάτων διαφόρων συστημάτων.

Defining the field of immunology for nearly 40 years, Paul's Fundamental Immunology continues to provide detailed, authoritative, up-to-date information that uniquely bridges the gap between basic immunology and the disease process. The fully revised 8th edition maintains the excellence established by Dr. William E. Paul, who passed away in 2015 and is now under new editorial leadership of Drs. Martin F. Flajnik, Nevil J. Singh, and Steven M. Holland. It's an ideal reference and gold standard text for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, basic and clinical immunologists, microbiologists and infectious disease physicians, and any physician treating diseases in which immunologic mechanisms play a role.
Immunology and Rheumatology in Questions, 2nd Edition addresses through short and concise questions-and-answers (Q&As) on one hand all major aspects of basic clinical and laboratory immunology necessary for understanding underlying immunological mechanisms of autoimmune rheumatic diseases. The majority however of Q&As in this book presents in a laconic way definitions, pathogenetic aspects, clinical and laboratory manifestations, differential diagnosis and the management of all categories of rheumatic diseases including systemic autoimmune, autoinflammatory, metabolic and degenerative. Furthermore, in separate sections of this manual Q&As addressing rheumatic manifestations from other organ systems are included. Finally, a chapter is devoted to treatment of rheumatic diseases analyzing indications and side-effects of different therapeutic modalities with illustrations and diagrams utilized throughout the book to present the information in a clear and schematic way.
Offering unique, comprehensive coverage of both basic science and clinical scenarios, Clinical Immunology: Principles and Practice, 6th Edition, brings you up to date with every aspect of this fast-changing field. It examines the molecular, cellular, and immunologic bases of immunologic diseases and their broader systemic implications; and includes complete coverage of all common and less common disorders. Updated with all the latest immunologic research and clinical implications, including breakthrough immunotherapies and molecular-based treatment protocols, this fully revised edition provides authoritative guidance from some of the most respected global leaders in immunology in one complete, well-illustrated volume.
