By Burkhard Ludewig, Matthias W. Hoffmann
An authoritative selection of optimum strategies for generating and characterizing the immunologically energetic cells and effector molecules now gaining broad use within the scientific remedy of sufferers. making the most of the most recent applied sciences, the authors current easily reproducible experimental protocols for the learn of dendritic cells, T cells, monoclonal antibodies, and bone marrow transplantation. The emphasis is on preclinicical and medical purposes and at the development of chosen methods in scientific trials. extra chapters disguise the molecular definition of goal antigens, mathematical modeling ways to immunotherapy, and the usage of regulatory T cells. The protocols give the chance to review the adoptive move of adapted antigen-specific immune cells and to enhance the medical program of adoptive immunotherapy.
