Since 1977, this outstanding book has been the immunology reference of choice for both veterinary students and practitioners. It's the only complete resource on the subject, featuring a straightforward presentation of basic immunologic principles with comprehensive information on the most significant immunological diseases and responses seen in domestic animals. This meticulously updated new edition explores the latest advances in the field and provides a wealth of clinical examples that illustrate and clarify important concepts. Clearly explains the general principles of immunology and applied immunology. Includes information on the most significant immunological diseases and immunological responses seen in domestic animals. Presents coverage of domestic mammal species in phylogenetic order: horse-cattle-sheep-pig-dog-cat-mouse-human. Provides clinical examples that demonstrate key immunologic principles. Offers expanded and updated references for all key sources in the literature. Features a new appendix that provides at-a-glance access to a comprehensive list of cytokines.
