N In preparing this edition, we have made improvements We are aware of two specific problems that medical throughout to improve the clarity and accessibility of the students have with immunology. First,the immune system is material. We have updated all the sections, particularly the complex, because it has evolved to respond to the wide material dealing with Toll-like receptors, dendritic cells, range of pathogens.
Many students find themselves bogged regulatory T cells, and HIV. We have also introduced a final down in the complexities of the molecules and cells of the chapter on therapeutic immunomodulation,which is being immune system, without having an understanding of how increasingly utilized in clinical practice.
This chapter also these components work together to fight infection. We aims to review what readers will have learned about the begin our book with two overview chapters that explain immunopathogenesis of several diseases covered in earlier what the immune system does and then how the compo- chapters.
In response to user feedback, we have also en- nents fit together. We recommend that students begin by hanced the clinical vignettes, which form the final pages of reading these chapters. Further on in the text, there are most chapters. Although some of these vignettes describe more short, integrating overview chapters.
These are not rare diseases, we hope that this helps readers link their just for revision, but are there to make sure that the student studies of immunology with real clinical experience. We have in- cluded clinical correlations throughout the text, which We have recognized the need for an immunology book that explain how understanding the science of immunology is primarily focused on the needs of medical students for as can translate into understanding real clinical problems.
