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.

From the reviews:

"This book is well written and complete regarding all the surgical fields in which immunology appeared to be a central component at the level of etiology and therapy. This book is affordable for general surgeons as well as young surgeons in training. The good part of the book is that all important parts of surgery in which immunology did progress recently are described and discussed. It appears as a good reference for passionate surgeons confronted in the daily life to these pathologies." (Prof. Gianello, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 102 (4), 2002)

"This book will be of interest to certain general surgeons and plastic surgeons who research interests lie in the area of immunology. It was written by 44 surgeons, pathologists, oncologists, and internists in different specialities … . With such an eminent group, there is something for everyone. … I would probably advise this as something a department should buy … . I have no doubt … it will be a most successful mine of research information." (I. T. Jackson, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 26 (3), 2003)

"Each section is written by a world leader in the field, in a manner that is easy to understand for the average surgeon … . Each section is richly referenced and supplemented with a commentary from an expert in the field. The editors should be congratulated on this excellent volume … which would appeal not only to the surgical trainee and the average practising surgeon, but also to the surgeon with an in-depth knowledge of immunology … ." (Del Khan, South African Journal of Surgery, Vol. 41 (2), 2003)

"This is a review highlighting classical and contemporary aspects of some of the most pertinent topics in surgical immunology. The format involves chapters written in an authoritative fashion by established experts. Each section is summarized, highlighting the most salient pints. Moreover, these summaries are conveniently referenced. This book will appeal to all with an interest in the pathological basis of surgical conditions. And the short summary format will also appeal to undergraduates." (H. P. Redmond, The British Journal of Surgery, Vol. 90 (2), 2003)
