Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is essentially a collection of reviews that introduce the reader to the wonderful world of iNKT cells, and how their powerful adjuvant properties are being utilised by different researchers. … this book is worth reading whether you are a new student in the NKT field and want to learn more or whether you are a clinician with an interest in tumour immunology.” (Salah Mansour, Immunology News, November, 2012)
