About this book
The immunology of fungal infections is a comprehensive text covering all aspects of the immunology of infection with these pathogens. In addition to established knowledge, this book covers recent developments in the innate and adaptive immunological mechanisms involved in the host response to fungal infection.
The volume is divided into a number of sections, which provides an immunological perspective on the cells, soluble factors and receptors involved in recognising and combating infections with these organisms. Further sections provide detailed descriptions of immunity to specific fungal pathogens, immune-escape mechanisms used by fungi and immune-based therapeutic strategies.
This book will be a valuable resource for those interested in fungal immunology particularly, students, specialists, teachers, researchers and clinicians.
