Summary "Concise Medical Immunology provides a clear, clinically oriented, and user-friendly introduction to fundamental principles of immunology and their applications in medical practice. This is an ideal textbook for both medical and allied health students taking a short foundation course in immunology. Unlike longer texts that cover immunology in overwhelming detail, this text takes the "middle road," distilling and presenting only the information necessary for an understanding of the basic role of the immune system in human health and disease."--BOOK JACKET
