Summary This is a third edition of the popular book, which presents an overview of the most recent findings in the biology of neutrophils. These cells are critically important for protection against bacterial and viral infections and have been recently demonstrated to be a major contributor to tumor associated immune suppression. In addition, neutrophils represent a unique model for studying fundamental questions of cellular biochemistry and molecular biology. This monograph provides a detailed description of signal transduction, generation of reactive oxygen, and mechanisms of migration and death of
