THE authoritative guide for clinical laboratory immunology
For over 40 years the Manual of Molecular and Clinical Laboratory Immunology has served as the premier guide for the clinical immunology laboratory. From basic serology testing to the present wide range of molecular analyses, the Manual has reflected the exponential growth in the field of immunology over the past decades. This eighth edition reflects the latest advances and developments in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with infectious and immune-mediated disorders.
The Manual features detailed descriptions of general and specific methodologies, placing special focus on the interpretation of laboratory findings, and covers the immunology of infectious diseases, including specific pathogens, as well as the full range of autoimmune and immunodeficiency diseases, cancer, and transplantation.
"This is THE authoritative reference for molecular and clinical laboratory immunology. If you perform this testing or want an expert update in the field, you will want this book."
-- Valerie Ng, PhD, MD (Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)Doody's Review
Intended for those who work in the clinical immunology laboratory - from clinical laboratory scientists in training or practice, to residents or fellows in clinical immunology or laboratory medicine/clinical pathology, to attendings in practice in either discipline, and especially laboratory directors. This book would also be of interest to clinicians in the many internal medicine subspecialties treating patients with diseases with immunological pathogenesis, to better understand and therefore more appropriately use testing for diagnosis, treatment, and management.
