Basic Veterinary Immunology
By Gerald N. Callahan and Robin M. Yates
Designed to fill the current gap in resources for teaching veterinary immunology, Basic Veterinary Immunology offers a solid background in the essentials of immunology within the context of veterinary medicine.
The book combines a clinical framework complete with real-world examples to integrate the theory and practice of veterinary medicine. Each chapter begins with a clinically relevant veterinary issue and then presents one aspect of basic immunology in the context of that issue. All chapters include learning objectives and a clinical correlation follow-up section that includes student considerations and a review of the possible explanations for the clinical presentation.
Illustrated with 250 full-color images and figures that will also be available as PowerPoint teaching aids, Basic Veterinary Immunology and related materials will be made available online to students, faculty, and clinical veterinarians in partnership with the Veterinary Information Network.
Basic Veterinary Immunology will provide students with a good working knowledge of veterinary immunology that will serve them both in the completion of their curricula and in professional practice.
