This volume highlights the latest reviews of mechanisms and actions of the immune system and the host response to infection and inflammation.

Key Features
* Covers cytokine functioning as influenced by the Janus protein tyrosine kinase family
* Explores immunodeficiencies, including:
* Immunoglobulin deficiencies and B cells development
* Glycosyl Phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor and Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH)
* Investigates the links molecular pathology established between deficiencies in GPI-anchor synthesis and PNH
* Includes the use of Multiple Antigen Peptides (MAPs) to induce protective immune response
* Offers a timely update on Eosinophils' role in disease
* Covers histology of Germinal center reaction of a spleen twelve days after primary immunization
* Includes new research on cytotoxic T-lymphocytes
* Presents the multiple roles of Nitric oxide (NO) in the inflammatory response
