  • About this book

This comprehensive volume, written by experts in the field, is the first to address the biology of dendritic cells (DCs) in an integrated fashion, in the context of HIV infection and immunity. The book brings together the most recent information related to the biology of DCs and their role in the pathogenesis and immunity of HIV-1 infection. Recent research in immunology has revealed the key importance of DCs in the regulation of the immune response to infections and that DCs are important targets and reservoirs of HIV, playing a critical role in several aspects of viral pathogenesis and immunity. The Biology of Dendritic Cells and HIV Infection is an ideal book for researchers, clinicians, physicians, and graduate students in the fields of basic and applied immunology, virology, cell biology and vaccine development.
