About this book


Immunology for Surgeons looks at relevant immunological and molecular biological trends - these form the focus of discussion for future treatment of complex surgical disease. It tackles this difficult clinical area, explaining in particular tumor immunobiology and immunotherapy and uniquely presents the worldwide results of clinical trials. The book collates a wide international literature otherwise difficult to assimilate, combining transatlantic research, particularly in immunotherapy.
Immunology for Surgeons is a must-have for the postgraduate surgical trainee and established surgeon with an interest in immunology.
