Editors: Jonas F. Jung and Luca T. Scholz
Book Description:
Mast cells are multifunctional effector cells in various immune responses. Beyond their well established important role in allergic disorders, they also play critical role as effector cell in innate immunity, initiation and maintenance of adaptive immunity, autoimmunity, chronic inflammatory disorders and atherosclerosis. This book provides leading-edge research on this field from around the globe.
