Allergy and Allergic Diseases, 2nd Edition
January 2009, Wiley-Blackwell
This two volume book is an outstanding reference source on all
aspects of allergy and allergic diseases. Covering virtually every
allergic condition, from the immunological and molecular basis of
the allergic response to future trends in allergic disease
prevention, this new international editorial team (A.B.Kay, Jean
Bousquet, Pat Holt and Allen Kaplan) have completely revised and
updated the text, from both a scientific and clinical perspective.
References will continue to be added to the text until it goes to
press making this the most up-to-date book available in the
This second edition consists of more than 1,800 pages contained
within 98 chapters.
The price includes a fully searchable companion CD ROM with the complete text and over 300 images from the book in full colour.
