This second edition provides detailed protocols for immunocytochemical localization of tissue constituents. The book is well balanced and suited for basic and clinical research scientists...The editor has successfully compiled this book for the intended readers. The editor and contributors are credible...The protocol style format is useful for a first experiment. The illustrations are attractive and informative. The book as a whole is nicely done...I find this a very useful and practical addition to all fields of biology and medicine. It is very user friendly and should be a great reference for those designing experiments and writing. - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal ...this book would make a valuable addition to laboratories currently involved in research using immunocytochemical techniques and would be particularly useful for those wishing to introduce these techniques into their research programmes...Given the depth of coverage of theory behind various techniques and the detailed notes that accompany each set of protocols, the book would also make an ideal teaching aid. - Molecular Biotechnology this excellent book on Methods and Protocols can be recommended to both investigators starting out in the field of immunocytochemistry and to basic and clinical researchers already working in the field because it contains a plethora of methods and protocols for the demonstration of molecules in many different normal and pathological situations and also under different experimental conditions. - Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy
