About this book


This comprehensive volume, written by experts in the field, covers nearly all aspects of ongoing research related to the CD137 pathway. Recent research has shown that the manipulation of CD137 pathway molecules is very promising in the treatment of cancer, viral infection, transplantation rejection and autoimmune diseases in experimental animal models. The volume includes research related to the identification and understanding of functional consequences of CD137 receptor and ligand molecules which represents a major effort in the field of immunology. CD137 Pathway: Immunology and Diseases is an ideal book for immunologists, microbiologists, cancer researchers, molecular biologists, biochemists, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology company scientists.
