Description

This work focuses on the impact of the cytokine network on the humoral immune response, as well as on its implications for the evolving field of cytokine-based medical therapeutics. Scientists interested in how cytokines regulate the production of antibody, and the selective expression of distinct antibody classes in response to microbial and other antigenic challenges now have a single, comprehensive and timely volume covering this complex field.
