Immunologie 7e dition
L'ouvrage présente les principes de l'immunologie en intégrant les dernières découvertes de ce domaine. Les nombreux mécanismes de la réponse immunitaire et les différents types de cellules intervenant dans le système immunitaire sont décrits. La connaissance des données fondamentales de base, enrichies des résultats de la recherche les plus récents, permet de comprendre les mécanismes des dysfonctionnements à l'origine de nombreuses maladies. Les notions difficiles sont clairement explicitées par des schémas en couleur et illustrées par des encarts sur les applications cliniques. En fin de chapitres, des questions de révision sont proposées, ainsi que des adresses de sites internet pour aller plus loin. Dans cette nouvelle édition profondément remaniée l'ordre des chapitres a été revu pour refléter la séquence des événements de la réponse immunitaire, les techniques d'analyse ont été actualisées et les questions de révision ont été renouvelées. Un nouveau chapitre, "La réponse immunitaire dans le temps et dans l'espace", réintègre chaque événement de la réponse immunitaire dans une histoire complète en s'appuyant notamment sur les techniques d'imagerie les plus récentes.
