Functional Organization of the Immune System
There is the explanation of such terms as “non-self,” “self,” and “former self” and what they matter in the immunology context. The reader can find a new idea related to the division of molecular patterns into PAMPs, AAMPs, DAMPs, and TAMPs. There is also the up-to-date description of structural features and functions of primary, secondary, and tertiary organs, cells, and molecules of the immune system. Clinical comments are accompanying almost evert unit.
