BS Nagoba, DV Vedpathak. Text Book of Immunology. 1st edition. Paras Medical Publisher, Hyderabad, 2003. Rs.120/-
This book is intended to inculcate the basic interest in Immunology in undergraduate and MBBS students. It is with this objective the authors have attempted to make the subject of Immunology as simple as possible. The first chapter gives the basics on different types of immune response, which is understandable even to students at the secondary school level.
The chapters on antigen and antibodies could have been improved with better quality illustrations. Antigen antibody interactions are explained in a lucid manner. The chapters on complement structure and function of the immune system and the immune response is described in a clear and easy manner. The subsequent chapters on immunodeficiency diseases, hypersensitivity and autoimmunity are adequate for the beginner. A small chapter on immunoprophylaxis is very useful. Typographical errors could have been minimised and a better font for the text material would have made it more pleasurable to read.
One must appreciate the earnest attempt the authors have made to make the Textbook of Immunology very comprehensive for the undergraduate student without compromising the quality and scientific content of the book. This book is recommended for novices in immunology but may not be for the connoisseurs.
