Immunological Tolerance: Methods and Protocols is a comprehensive guide to the techniques currently used for culturing and characterising the cell types responsible for imposing self-tolerance and the experimental models employed to study their function both in vitro and in vivo. This guide is aimed at AIDS researchers, immunologists, transplant surgeons/specialists, and biotechnologists.
