There has been a huge increase in the knowledge and understanding of the immunological processes involved in surgical practice in recent years. Anaesthesiologists and intensive care physicians are increasingly recognising the significant derangements of immune function in the critically illpatient and the possible therapeutic approaches to manage such patients (including new approaches in transplantation rejections, novel vaccination strategies in cancer treatment, as well as a better understanding of the beneficial effects of standard chemotherapy).Written by recognised experts in their field from both the UK and the US, and extensively referenced for further reading, Essential Immunology for Surgeons provides a concise, up-to-date, and readable account of immunology in general and its translation into key areas of clinical practice. Itprovides the necessary foundation for a critical understanding of this essential and rapidly expanding area of biological science that underpins and explains the modern concepts of a range of diseases and conditions, encompassing autoimmunity, infection, trauma, cancer, nutrition, organtransplantation, and various forms of therapy.Previously published as Immunological Basis for Surgical Science and Practice, this fully-updated textbook is aimed predominantly at the surgical trainee, but will also be of value to undergraduate and postgraduate clinicians of any discipline who wish to have a better understanding and knowledge ofthe subject, as well as to researchers studying the various core topics discussed in the book.
Professor Oleg Eremin graduated from the University of Melbourne, Australia, in 1964, before training in surgery at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and in Papua New Guinea. He moved to the UK in 1972, becoming Research Assistant at the University of Cambridge, between 1974 and 1980, undertaking research into tumour immunology and anti-can...
