About this book

Over the past several years, a high diversity of regulatory cells and suppressive molecules has taken centre stage in the field of immunoregulation. In Suppression and Regulation of Immune Responses: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers highlight recent advances in the identification, characterization, and generation of regulatory cells not only of the T cell lineage but also of other origins such as B, NK, myeloid, and dendritic cells, as well as the role of several suppressive molecules in immunoregulation. Particular emphasis is placed on the characterization of the molecular mechanisms and the therapeutic applications of regulatory cells and molecules in human diseases. Written as a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this work provides the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Suppression and Regulation of Immune Responses: Methods and Protocols serves as a key reference for scientists seeking a way toward greater control over the enormous power of the complex and vital immune system.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a highly informative book, packed with a wealth of information covering all aspects of immune suppression and regulatory mechanisms. There is a diverse array of protocols offered, which are generally clear and easy to follow. … the wealth of information and literature reviews included make this book worth purchasing for those working in this field.” (Andrew Vaughan, Immunology News, August, 2011)
