The Immune System, Third Edition emphasizes the human immune system and synthesizes immunological concepts into a comprehensible, up-to-date, and reader-friendly account of how the immune system works. Written for undergraduate, medical, veterinary, dental, and pharmacy students in immunology courses, it makes generous use of medical examples to illustrate points. The Third Edition has been extensively revised and updated and includes two new chapters on innate and adaptive immunity, which explore the physical, cellular, and molecular principles underlying these responses to infection. It also features enhanced coverage of aspects of innate immunity such as the complement system, Toll-like receptors, defensins, and C-reactive protein; the role of dendritic cells in initiating the primary adaptive immune response and the functions of other cells that bridge innate and adaptive immunity; immunotherapies using humanized monoclonal antibodies to treat certain diseases; and the nature of the immune response in the mucosal tissues and immunological memory. The book offers over 500 full-color illustrations that complement and clarify the concepts. The end-of-chapter questions have been expanded and include essay, multiple-choice, and case study questions, with answers provided at the end of the book.

Praise for the Second Edition: "...Appealing and relevant for those students who approach the study of the immune system through a clinical lens, including students of medicine, pharmacology, midwifery, or nursing; it would also be appropriate in an introductory immunology course." Clinical Immunology


"The Immune System, Third Edition" is designed for use in immunology courses for undergraduate, medical, dental, and pharmacy students. This class-tested and proven textbook synthesizes the established facts of immunology into a comprehensible, coherent, and up-to-date account of how the human immune system works and the effects it has on the health and survival of individuals and populations, making generous use of medical examples to illustrate points. The reader-friendly text, full-color illustrations, and section and chapter summaries make the book accessible and easily understandable to students. The Third Edition is a major revision and includes two new chapters: Innate Immunity (Chapter 2) and Principles of Adaptive Immunity (Chapter 3). Former Chapter 12 has been divided into three chapters: vaccination (Chapter 14), transplantation (Chapter 15), and cancer (Chapter 16). The number of end-of-chapter questions has been expanded and now include essay, multiple choice, and case study (USMLE-format) questions with answers provided at the end of the book. "The Immune System" is adapted from "Immunobiology" by Janeway, Travers, and Walport.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Introductory Text 6. April 2009
Von Bio Prof - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I've been using the new and previous editions of the Parham text to teach an introductory immunology course for the last 4 1/2 years. Until I made a few unfortunate text choices for other courses this year, I didn't fully appreciate what a wonderful text this is. The chapters (especially in the new, 3rd edition) are arranged in a logical fashion and broken down into sections for easy digestibility & assignability. The figures are clear with excellent descriptions and correlate nicely with the text. While the chapter on T cell activation/effector functions still suffers from a bit of disarray, it is still highly usable & provides the necessary information. Immunology is a difficult subject, but this text makes it a pleasure to teach & learn, and receives high marks from my students as well. It is perfect for a one-semester course.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Immuno Course for undergrad to I&I in Medical School 17. Dezember 2009
Von USSR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I used this text when I was a student in Undergrad, our exams for my course were essay format. The author has broken down all of the chapters into small key points rather than writing 20 key points in one gigantic chapter which would be frustrating to decipher where one point stops and another begins. I found the illustrations extremely helpful in that they summed up the main point of a topic in the caption, so if you were ever pressed on time and needed to know the key points, you could essentially study the illustrations and understand what was written in the paragraph. I have the older edition and I'm sure you can get most of your information from that for an undergraduate course. I also was required to read this book for medical school for our immunity/infection course. However, if you've read through it enough and understood it, you don't need to read it again. I would hands down buy this book and recommend it to any student at any level needing to understand immunology. Just be aware, the order of the chapters in this book will not be the same as most professors teach it. If you can get past that minor detail - you'll LOVE this book!

I'm an electrical engineer, so I dont have good fundations on biology, however, this book unlike others, explain immunology very well, from the basics to the more advanced topics, the images, the figures, everything is really intend for an ignorant like me, to get precious knowledge. I really recomend it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gold Mine of Information 8. Januar 2010
Von J. Arnette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I am glad this book (3rd edition) was chosen for the Immunology course in my university. The main point I want to highlight is that it is a serious book for dedicated people. I felt with this book I was "in good hands," as it covers everything you may want to know about Immunology. I would say that target audience for this book is someone who doesn't have any knowledge of the subject, but is eager to have a thorough, solid understanding of it. It's not the lightest introductory book on Immunology, but it is a very good one. Like a smart and caring professor, it carefully leads in every concept and wants to teach as much as possible. That is to say, chapters are quite heavy on the material, but author does a great job at breaking down the concepts into separate paragraphs. Also, author occasionally uses summaries within the chapter, which I found to be extremely helpful to lock in the concepts. There is also a summary at the end of each chapter. If you will remember most of the material from this book, you can sure proudly call yourself an Immunologist!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent textbook! 12. Juli 2011
Von Bootysnax - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this textbook because it was required for my undergraduate-level immunology class, but it would also be great for anyone who is learning immunology on their own. The way it is written makes it very easy to understand, and there are many colorful drawings that help explain what you are reading. It doesn't drag as much as other textbooks seem to. I actually find myself reading ahead of class because it's just so painless to read. There are a few things I might change about it, but compared to the many other horrible textbooks I've been subjected to, these imperfections are almost unnoticeable (a typo here and there, etc.). Some people in class are complaining that some of the drawings could be less confusing if they were colored differently, but I have not found that to be a problem at all. If you read the captions underneath the drawings like you're meant to, it makes perfect sense. I have the softcover version, and it's perfect for people who like to write tons of notes in the margins as they learn. This is a textbook that I will definitely be keeping for further reference, so I write all over it and use it as my notebook for class. There are areas I wish would go into further detail, but I can understand why an introductory textbook would leave those details out, as a class is only so many weeks long. The book is detailed enough that you should be able to access *and actually understand* most journal articles online regarding whatever aspect of immunology you wish to know more about. I've had good luck with books published by Garland Science in the past (Introduction to Protein Structure is a good one).

You should be able to understand the book without taking microbiology, but a knowledge of micro will make it more interesting. A shaky background in molecular biology/genetics is good enough, but again, it will be more interesting if you brush up on this beforehand. The textbook mentions a great deal of problems in immunology that have yet to be solved, and if you have a background in these other areas, it makes it more intriguing to ponder possible solutions and to think about the impact these solutions would have on the scientific community and on society.
