In Guide to Signal Pathways in Immune Cells, Nigel E. Wardle presents vital information in regards to white cells, like the neutrophils and macrophages, T and B lymphocytes, natural killer cells and mast cells, as they constitute the immune defenses against microbial invaders or tumor cells. In all such cells the necessary information processing for their activities utilizes a network of intracellular signaling pathways. As a guide this book aims to extend understanding of the basic signal transduction pathways that will be suitable for students of immunology or cell biology and for medical personnel at all levels.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book describes the basic signaling pathways that are used by cells of the immune system . . The target audience is students, particularly those interested in immune mechanisms. Another group that may find it useful includes physicians who have not kept up with the signal transduction pathway literature and need updated information. . It would certainly be useful for clinicians who have not kept up to date on these pathways and do not have the time to search for review articles." (Marion C. Cohen, Doody's Review Service, December, 2009)"I found this to be a remarkable book. The scope of the volume is very wide, covering both the generalities and specifics of cell signalling in the immune system. . General areas . are succinctly covered with informative tables and appropriate line drawings. . An excellent book which one would be happy to find in the library . ."
