Summary "Does the massive amount of information involved in your study of immunology overwhelm you?"--BOOK JACKET. "If so, let Basic Concepts in Immunology organize and condense the material to help you master - not just memorize - the structure and function of the body's defense system."--BOOK JACKET. "The focus is on those topics that students have identified as "most difficult" to grasp. Using simple, jargon-free language you'll fully understand the material and feel comfortable applying it."--BOOK JACKET
