About this book

Handbook of Immunochemistry focuses on both basic and advanced information in the area of immunochemical research. The material is interpreted from a wide immunological viewpoint and covers both theoretical and practical aspects of the subject. This is an ideal handbook for senior undergraduates, graduates and researchers new to the field. It provides essential knowledge on current research on the effector and regulatory molecules of the immune system, their structure, biosynthesis, mutual interactions, clinical applications in immunodeficiency diseases and also the biochemical events during the functional activities of phagocytes. Methodological information is given on the basic principles of techniques for the fractionation and purification of immunoglobulins, preparation of monoclonal antibodies and the fundamental theory of antigen-antibody reactions in vitro and their use in immunochemical methods. This book should be of interest to postgraduate students and researchers new to the field; and should be bought by medical and department libraries.


Importance of the immune system; immunology and immunochemistry; antigens; the major histocompatibility complex; the immunoglobulins; biosynthesis of antibodies; preparation of pure immunoglobulins; endogenous immunomodulators; the complement system; antigen - antibody reactions in vitro; immunochemical methods; phagocytosis.
