Beschreibungen

Cellular Aspects of HIV Infection provides a highly readable, detailed overview of the state of the art in modern HIV research at the cellular level. This volume brings together renowned experts who have provided concise, synthetic treatments of the biology of HIV infection. It presents these descriptions and analyses with particular attention to the techniques of flow cytometry that have allowed us to not only observe the course of HIV infection and the immune system's response to it, but have also increased our ability to treat patients and understand their response to therapy. The book is divided into five sections covering molecules and cells, pathophysiological processes, technologies, and organisms. A perspective on future therapies concludes the book. Each chapter offers an intelligent, concise synthesis of the topic, highlighting the biological principles and technologies involved in the study of HIV infection. Cellular Aspects of HIV Infection is an indispensable, up-to-date guide for immunologists, virologists, clinicians, and researchers.

Cellular Aspects of HIV Infection highlights many of the important aspects of HIV interaction with host cells and with the immune system. Notably, several chapters cover the most recent observations on both innate and adaptive immune responses and approaches for reconstituting the immune system by a variety of procedures. This edited book provides a ready reference for valuable background and current information on many aspects of HIV pathogenesis.(Jay A. Levy, M.D., University of California San Francisco)
