Fungal Immunology provides comprehensive introduction and information about fungal Immunity and help to study its immunology you can get full (PDF) book download here. Knowledge of how the human immune system defends against infections caused by the medically important fungi continues to evolve as an increasing amount of data accumulate from both clinical studies and animal models. It has been 10 years since a volume of chapters dedicated to fungal immunology has been published. Thus, when the opportunity presented to edit a new volume in fungal immunology, we were both honored and excited about the prospects. However, in considering a layout and format, we strived for a unique angle by which to showcase the immense data accumulated over the past 10 years.

Accordingly, rather than simply separate the book by organism with chapters on each type of response or separate the book by type of response with inclusion of chapters for each organism, we decided on a layout based on organ systems, recognizing that each medically important fungal organism often causes disease in distinct organ systems, together with the contemporary concept that innate and adaptive immune reactivity is not mutually exclusive, but highly linked and networked for optimal function.

Thus, we feel we have succeeded in providing a unique format that did not sacrifice content. Furthermore, the organ-specific approach has the potential to better serve infectious disease physicians and researchers working in specific organ systems without loss of any information of interest to immunologists and medical mycologists.
