This textbook describes the basic molecular and cellular components of the immune system, the pathogenesis and prevention of infectious diseases, and common immune system dysfunctions. Topics of the 27 chapters include antibodies, the major histocompatibility complex, antigen processing, the T-cell receptor, vaccines, AIDS, and transplantation immunology. Color illustrations depict the immunologic processes in conjunction with their role in infectious or other diseases. In addition to an emphasis on infectious diseases, the book focuses strongly on those areas where the immune system does not act when it should as well as areas where the over activity or dysregulation of the immune system is a cause of pathology.
This test for Part One covers chapter 1 through 13 of the textbook.
Be sure to save your book so that you can use it for the Part 2 test.
We also offer Pathophysiology of Disease Part 1 and Part 2, another Category A+ credit course with a more general focus on human disease, including immune system topics. Understanding the Immune System is also available, which is a shorter, easy to understand course covering the elements of the human immune system.
No matter which type of course you purchase, (complete course, test only for email, fax or online) you can take your test through our on-line testing site.
If you order any of the "Test Only" options, it does not include the text book.
