The Hardcover Book:
Bellanti’s IMMUNOLOGY IV is a new, contemporary approach to teaching immunology that uses the most advanced pedagogical and online aids. Consisting of a full-color, heavily illustrated textbook plus an online service with animations, illustrations, interactive study questions and critical thinking aids, this is the perfect solution not only for faculty seeking to fully present this complex scientific discipline to students as well for members of the medical professions while focusing on its relation to real world clinical problem-solving. It is also the ideal reference for residents and practitioners preparing for certification and board examinations. The structure, content and pedagogy allow users to retain more knowledge in less time than with traditional methods.
Immunology has seen extraordinary developments in both scope and complexity during the last 40 years. World-renowned author, researcher and educator Joseph A. Bellanti, MD, has synthesized the most current research findings with clinical applications through an innovative new approach to teaching. This text and online service presents a unified approach by integrating principles with case studies to teach clinical realities. Each new book purchased includes a password for a two year individual subscription to the online service at www.immunologycenter.org.
In the Preface of the book, Dr. Bellanti explains: “What was once a discipline defined in descriptive terms is now becoming better understood at the genomic and molecular levels.” Because of this and the rapid development of treatment options, it is critical for students, residents and practitioners to fully understand the clinical implications of immunologic principles and mechanisms.
o SECTION 1 - PRINCIPLES
§ Uses a building block format to explain the individual components of the innate and adaptive immune systems individually and sequentially
o SECTION 2 – MECHANISMS OF RESPONSE
§ Presents mechanisms of immune response with description of current molecular, cellular and genomic concepts in normal physiology as well as those in immune-mediated disorders; detailed discussion of immunogenetics and major immunodulatory agents are presented
o SECTION 3 - CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
§ Presents the pathophysiologic, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of the major clinical applications of the immune system
o Each case is followed by a description of immunologic principles and pathophysiologic mechanisms illustrated in the case
o At the end of each chapter, the case is revisited with an in-depth discussion of the diagnosis and treatment options in order to connect the scientific findings with clinical relevance
