    The goal of this book is to present findings which are supportive of the concept that the words of the idiotype dictionary and likewise self-recognition are essential for communication between lymphocyte clones while some unfaithful ( infidel ) copies of the words contained in the idiotype dictionary perhaps play a role in the functional regulation of nonlymphoid cells.

Cross-Reacting and Regulatory Idiotopes on Autoantibodies: Effect on Regulation of Autoimmunity 8. Anti-Idiotypic antibodies in Cancer Therapy 9. Anti-Idiotype in the therapy of B Cell Malignancies 10. The Biological Significance of Anti-Idiotypic Autoimmune Reactions to HLA 11.
