About this Book

This is the most comprehensive handbook on dendritic cells, featuring an introduction by Ralph M. Steinman and written by top experts. In three volumes, it covers all aspects from molecular cell biology to clinical applications, highlighting the role of dendritic cells in fighting cancer, virus infections, and autoimmune diseases.
The first section on cell biology looks at dendritic cell development, circulating cells, T cell priming, Th1 and Th2 decision and CTL priming. A second part on dendritic cells in disease deals with parasites, bacteria, viruses, autoimmunity, allergies, asthma and cancer. The final section on therapeutic applications includes viral infections and antigen delivery.
