The immunology of fungal infections is a comprehensive text covering all aspects of the immunology of infection with fungal pathogens. In addition to established knowledge, this book covers recent developments in the innate and adaptive immunological mechanisms involved in the host response to fungal infection. The volume is divided into a number of sections, which provide an immunological perspective on the cells, soluble factors and receptors involved in recognising and combating fungal pathogens. Further sections provide detailed descriptions of immunity to specific fungi, immune-escape mechanisms used by these organisms and immune-based therapeutic strategies. This book would be a valuable resource for those interested in fungal immunology particularly, students, specialists, teachers, researchers and clinicians.
