Summary This invaluable volume, written by group of internationally established scientists, presents an overview of the most recent findings on the biology of neutrophils. These cells have become a focus of attention in recent years because of their fascinating biochemistry and molecular biology and their ability to affect the functions of other cells. The book describes, in detail, the molecular events leading to neutrophil activation, migration, microbial killing, production of oxidative radicals and cytokines, and eventually to the death of these cells. It presents new information that has never been discussed in monographs before. It also gives a unique overview of the neutrophil's role in viral diseases, including Aids. Finally, the book describes how to improve the function of neutrophils and use these cells in the treatment of diseases
