  • Provides up-to-date reviews of the literature on essential topics in immunological tolerance
  • Documents methods for the generation and culture of critical cell types and approaches to their characterization
  • Describes protocols for the study of tolerance both in vitro and in vivo
  • Provides insights into novel techniques for tolerance induction

Immunological Tolerance: Methods and Protocols is a comprehensive guide to the techniques currently used for culturing and characterising the cell types responsible for imposing self-tolerance and the experimental models employed to study their function both in vitro and in vivo.

This guide is aimed at AIDS researchers, immunologists, transplant surgeons/specialists, and biotechnologists.
