Historically, the study of immunology has focused to a large extent on the central role of antigen recognition and antibody structure and function in the response of the host to infection. In the last two decades, however, scientists have been turning their attention to the involvement of various cell types in host defense. This volume provides a collection of absorbing reviews written by expert scientists on this developing topic. A broad range of material is included relating to the molecular and cell biology of the macrophage and its host defence activity in human disease. The important role that these cells play in hemopoiesis and the functioning of the nervous system is also discussed. Advanced students and researchers in immunology, cell biology, and medicine will find The Macrophage a valuable source of current research into this emerging field.
