Veterinary immunology 10th edition
November 2017

Exploring the immunologic concerns of both large and small animals, Veterinary Immunology: An Introduction of Veterinary Immunology 10th Edition is the only complete resource on immunology for veterinary practitioners. This new edition has been meticulously updated to continue its trend of incorporating the latest advances and topics in the field. It features a straightforward presentation of basic immunologic principles along with thorough and timely information on the most significant immunologic diseases and responses seen in domestic animals.

  • Comprehensive coverage clearly explains the general principles of immunology, and provides information on the most significant immunologic diseases and immunologic responses seen in domestic animals and marine mammals.
  • A wealth of clinical examples show how principles will be experienced and addressed in the clinical setting.
  • Educator and student resources on Evolve feature an image collection, enhanced animations, flashcards, content updates, and a test bank for instructors.
  • Improved images clarify new content and enhance your understanding.
  • NEW! Updated content covers new T cell sub populations, newly described interleukins; new approaches to cancer immunotherapy; immunology of fish; and new advances in genomics.
  • NEW! Learning objectives have been added to the beginning of each chapter.
  • NEW! Chapter on commensal bacterial will address the role of commensal bacteria in veterinary immunology and provide convincing explanations for previously poorly understood phenomena.
  • NEW! Information on the pathogenesis and treatment of atopic dermatitis has been added to help inform veterinarians who treat pets with dermatologic conditions.
  • NEW! Revised content on cancer immunology reflects the vast expansion of information that has been uncovered in the past five years.
  • NEW! Expanded information on the role of nutrition in animal immunity offers a rational basis for examining data of those who claim nutritional benefits.
  • NEW! Full-color histologic images replace black and white images to more effectively convey concepts.

This new edition also reflects revolutionary changes in the way we think of immunology. Like the concept of innate immunity, these changes are not a result of a previously unknown process but a belated recognition of something known about since the dawn of microbiology, the body’s normal microbiota.

New methodologies and intensive studies have revealed that many body processes, especially immunity, are regulated by the diverse microbiota that colonizes all body surfaces. Much of immunology has had to be reassessed in the light of this new knowledge. Both innate and adaptive immunity are regulated by those organisms, especially bacteria, that live in the intestine and respiratory tract and on the skin. Many previously unexplained phenomena have now been shown to depend on the normal microbiota. As a result of this new information, the reader will encounter the microbiota at every turn in this book, plus a completely new chapter on the subject.

The second new chapter of Veterinary Immunology 10th Edition deals with allergic diseases. For many years, these were readily explained by the production of IgE against allergens. The most recent information, however, has demonstrated that allergies are much more complex than this. For example, atopic dermatitis, one of the most common conditions seen by small animal veterinarians, is likely a syndrome with multiple complex causative factors. As a result, allergic and inflammatory diseases deserve a new chapter. Password: Vi10E1+PDFLibrary.Net
