After decades of research in clinical transplantation,  new techniques have been developed that permit a further understanding of the  immune mechanisms underlying immune recognition of allografts and a more accurate and  thorough evaluation of compatibility between donors and recipients. The second edition of Transplantation Immunology: Methods and Protocols expands upon the previous edition with current, detailed methods in transplantation immunology.  The new methods chapters cover four major areas that are being applied in compatibility evaluations and ongoing transplantation immunology research.  Seven overview chapters provide reviews of the molecular basis for alloreactivity, current understanding of humoral and cellular mechanisms,  as well as new developments in thoracic organ transplantation, composite tissue transplantation and in the transplantation of sensitized patients.  Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyT series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Transplantation Immunology: Methods and Protocol, Second Edition is devoted to transplantation immunology, both in the practice of compatibility testing and in transplantation research.
