Parham (structural biology, microbiology, immunology, Stanford U.) offers a third edition to his textbook explaining the functions of the human immune system. It is specifically intended for undergraduate students in medical, dental, and pharmacy in immunology courses. Extensively updated, the textbook includes new chapters on innate and adaptive immunity, enhanced treatment of aspects of innate immunity such as the complement system and defensins, immunotherapies, and the nature of immune response in mucosal tissues and immunological memory. It is well-illustrated and includes essay, multiple choice, and case study questions at the conclusion of each chapter. Annotation 穢2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
