Immunology: An Illustrated Outline is both a review guide to the essential principles of immunology and a concise dictionary of immunological terms. It can be used as a review tool in preparation for course exams and medical licensing exams, or as a refresher when this content is encountered in related life science areas, such as microbiology and virology. The book also enables readers to look up specific terms in the index and locate the definitions, making it a powerful reference for interns, residents, and physicians in clinical practice.

“The interspersion of both photographs and cartoon images brings significant clarity to the subject. Material is timely, with such subjects as cytokine and chemokine regulation of cell development, often a confusing topic for those less interested in the molecular regulation of cell function, explained in a clear manner…a well-written, colorful synopsis of immunology for anyone with some knowledge of the subject. The guide would serve as an excellent supplement for an immunology course.”--CHOICE
"This book is very successful at providing the necessary information that enables the reader to glean a conceptual understanding of whatever aspect of immunology they choose to learn." --Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
