9780199609505: Infection & Immunity

Our immune system is a complex network of cells continually battling against a barrage of attacks from our environment, quite literally to save our lives. But what protects us from the potentially life-threatening microorganisms that surround us every day?

In the lucid, accessible style for which John Playfair is renowned, and together with Greg Bancroft, an expert in infectious diseases, Infection and Immunity explains how our immune system defends us. The authors describe the main causes of infection that our bodies have to battle against - from bacteria to viruses, fungi to protozoa - and explains the intricate and fascinating ways in which we respond, from detection of potentially dangerous organisms to their ultimate elimination - sometimes, unfortunately, suffering new pathological symptoms in the process.

Presenting a fully-rounded, well-balanced overview of the field, the book also explains how diseases spread, and what measures we can take to control this spread - from vaccination to increasing awareness through public health initiatives.

With examples of infectious diseases from across the world, Infection and Immunity is the ideal text for biomedical science, bioscience, and microbiology students who need to understand the basics of what causes infection, and how our immune systems respond.

Book Description:

Review from previous edition The text presented is of a very high quality, presented by authors who are passionate about the subject and how it is portrayed to their students in a manner that will inspire! ( Dr Andrew Foey, School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth)

I think the book is quite unique in its breadth and integrated topic. ( Dr John Greenman, Biological Sciences, The University of Hull)

As the field of immunology becomes more and more specialized, here is a textbook that offers a fresh overlook of host-pathogen interactions for the student. The general yet thorough text is directed at students with minimal college biology background and would be appropriate for freshmen and sophomore students. ( Professor Gary Splitter, Department of Animal Health and Biomedical Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

Few books are available that are suitable for a course that integrates microbiology and immunology, but this one succeeds in explaining the immune system and its role in host defense very well. Immunology is a rapidly advancing discipline and this third edition is a welcome update. ( Doodys reviews)
