Avian Immunology 3Rd Edition Pdf

By Bernd Kaspers , Karel A. Schat, Thomas Göbel, Lonneke Vervelde

Avian Immunology 3rd Edition PDF contains a detailed description of the avian innate immune system, encompassing the mucosal, enteric, respiratory and reproductive systems. The diseases and disorders it covers, include immunodepressive diseases and immune evasion, autoimmune diseases, and tumors of the immune system. Practical aspects of vaccination are examined as well. Extensive appendices summarize resources for scientists including cell lines, inbred chicken lines, cytokines, chemokines, and monoclonal antibodies. With contributions from the foremost international experts in the field, Avian Immunology 3rd, provides the most up-to-date crucial information not only for poultry health professionals and avian biologists, but also for comparative and veterinary immunologists, graduate students, and veterinary students with an interest in avian immunology. Avian Immunology 3rd edition is a fascinating and growing field and surely provides new and exciting insights for mainstream immunology in the future.

  • Reflects significant advances in the field since the second edition, particularly the explosion of knowledge on genomics including work on the chicken, turkey and zebra finch genomes
  • Provides a single source reference ranging from the basic science to cutting edge research
  • Provides practical information for veterinarians particularly those specialised in poultry or companion bird medicine
  • New chapters on the impact of the microbiome on the immune system, defence mechanisms in the egg and embryo and emerging transgene technologies
