A weak immune system is susceptible to various diseases and infections caused by foreign bodies like bacteria, fungus and viruses. From a trivial cold to a serious cancer--one is prone to all if the immune system is not strong enough to fight against these foreign bodies. This text gives a comprehensive account on human immune system, its basics, types, structure and functions of antibodies, and the advanced topics of Immunology like immunodeficiencies and immunotherapy.

The book explains physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and diseases; malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders (autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency, transplant rejection); the physical, chemical and physiological characteristics of the components of the immune system in vitro, in situ, and in vivo, in detail.

The text embodies a new insight into immunological concepts in simple, straightforward and comprehensive language with lucid and clear illustrations. It covers up-to-date information on immunoprophylactic, immunodiagnostic and immunotherapeutic methods.

The neatly drawn figures complement the theories well, enabling the students to grasp the concepts readily. The Review Questions at the end of the chapters help the students to think critically and answer. The book also incorporates competitive examination questions.

The book is intended for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Biotechnology, Zoology, Microbiology, Biochemistry and Immunology. Besides, the book will be equally beneficial for the students appearing for competitive examinations like UGCNET, CSIR, SLET and civil services.
