Essentials of Clinical Immunology

Essentials of Clinical Immunology by Chapel Helen – 4th ed.

Essentials of Clinical Immunology is aimed at clinical medical students, doctors in training and career grade doctors seeking refreshment. This edition has been updated to present immunology in the context of modern teaching methods and of advances in molecular and cellular biology.

A key feature is the continued use of real case histories, which have been made anonymous, to illustrate key concepts. For this edition, many more cases have been added to reflect the increasing use of problem-orientated learning in medical school undergraduate curricula.

Dealing with real-life patients is the daily work of the qualified doctor and learning in the context of case histories is immediately relevant to continuing professional development, now an essential requirement for all career grade doctors.

To enable the addition of further cases, to illustrate new diseases, treatments or management regimes, and ultimately the inclusion of relevant clinical and radiological material, all the cases are to be found on the Internet (see inside front cover for details).

The fourth edition will span the new millennium. To encourage multimedia learning, we have linked the book to the Internet. Web references appear as icons in the headings and relate to cases and evidence-based medicine . The multiple choice questions and further reading sections in all chapters are linked to the web.

This will enable continual updating of key references and questions as well as provision of the evidence on which patient management protocols are based.
