Description

Since publication of the 4th Edition of The Autoimmune Diseases in 2006, the understanding of the immune mechanisms underlying autoimmunity and autoimmune disease has significantly deepened and broadened. This fully revised 5th Edition incorporates new material and combines common themes underlying inductive and effector mechanisms and therapies that relate generally to the autoimmune disorders. It discusses the biological basis of disease at genetic, molecular, cellular, and epidemiologic levels and includes expanded coverage of autoinflammatory disease and autoimmune responses to tumors.

Quotes and reviews

"...incorporates new material and combines common themes underlying inductive and effector mechanisms and therapies that relate generally to the autoimmune disorders."--Anticancer Research, February 2015

"This authoritative book on autoimmune diseases is useful for clinicians and basic scientists alike. It is easy to read but is also useful as a reference. The authors provide an extensive overview of autoimmunity, ranging from basic mechanisms of disease to clinical features. Rating - 4 Stars"--Doody.com, August 2014

"...edited by Noel R. Rose and Ian R. Mackay, widely recognized experts in autoimmunity and its pathophysiological and clinical aspects. This thoughtfully updated new edition takes into consideration important developments in basic and clinical science. This book will be a valuable resource to clinicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune diseases, to scientists who want to follow developments in the field, and to all those who enjoyed the previous edition."--Martha M. Eibl, M.D. for NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE, Jan 2006
