The consequences of diseases involving the immune system now appear to have much wider impact on health care and management. Even though over the last decade, our understanding of the basic immunological mechanisms underlying various diseases has increased considerably, the application of these research findings for drug development have not been fully exploited.

With a view to analyzing the current strategies for immunotherapy, Immunopharmacology: Strategies for Immunotherapy brings together contributions from experts involved with various aspects of immunology. It explores new approaches for prevention and treatment of diseases, and these approaches invariably involve the manipulation of the immune system. Individual articles cover topics that include immunological interactions and responses, effector mechanisms, and targets, and strategies for the modulation of immune response. The book provides the most recent data in the field and proposes new immunopharmacological approaches to disease prevention and treatment. With its abundance of topical information, Immunopharmacology: Strategies for Immunotherapy serves as an indispensable reference for immunologists, pharmacologists, and researchers.
