Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This multi-author book . provides a complete overview about intestinal immunology, thanks to the contribution of many of the leaders in this field. . The completeness of . articles allows the reader to consult the book rapidly in order to achieve direct information about the specific aspect he is interested in. This book can be recommended to both researchers interested in basic aspects of inflammatory bowel disease and clinical gastroenterologists who want to raise their awareness of the mechanisms underlying clinical manifestations . ."
