Meets Florida 1-hour specialty requirement in serology/immunology. For ASCP, it provides 12 hours in serology/immunology.

Dr. Sompayrac cuts through the jargon to reveal, in simple language, the essence of this complex subject: how the immune system fits together, how it protects us from disease and, perhaps most importantly, why it works the way it does.

Now in its 7th edition, this book features a new chapter that describes the role of the immune system in fighting COVID-19, as well as up-to-date information on vaccines, immunotherapies, immunological memory, cancer, and more.
