They can take part in various immune responses without prior sensitization, and have important modulatory effects on later, specific responses.
This volume provides a collection of reviews written by leading scientists, covering a variety of topics relating to the biology and function of the neutrophil, and its role in disease. A broad range of chapters includes discussions of the neutrophil's basic cell biology and normal function, followed by specific examples of diseases resulting from neutrophil dysfunction and deficiency. The concepts in each chapter are brought to life through the use of clinical case studies.
Advanced students and researchers in immunology, cell biology, and medicine will find The Neutrophil to be a valuable source of current research into this exciting field.
