Reviews

"Now in a fully updated and expanded ninth edition "Janeway's Immunobiology" continues to be the premier textbook for students studying immunology at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school levels. As an introductory text, students will appreciate the clear writing and informative illustrations, while advanced students and working immunologists will value its comprehensive scope and depth. This new edition of "Janeway's Immunobiology" presents immunology from a consistent point of view throughout -- that of the host's interaction with an environment full of microbes and pathogens. Now thoroughly revised ninth edition brings the content up-to-date with significant developments in the field, especially on the topic of innate immunity, and improving the presentation of topics across chapters for better continuity."
James A. Cox, Library Bookwatch, February 2018
