importance of immunological concepts in disease states. Essential Clinical Immunology begins with the basic concepts and then details the immuno-logical aspects of various disease states involving major organs of the body. The book explores how we can better understand disease and its treatment through clinical immunology. The book contains a detailed description of the avian innate immune system, encompassing the mucosal, enteric, respiratory and reproductive systems. The diseases and disorders it covers include immunodepressive diseases and immune evasion, autoimmune diseases, and tumors of the immune system. Practical aspects of vaccination are examined as well.

Infectious Diseases & Immune Responses involves the responses of immune system during the attack of a disease and Infectious Diseases & Immune Responses studies the fighting mechanisms upon the invasion and replication of various microbial agents - bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans, and worms as well as reacts in the toxins they produce. The immune response is capable of responding in distinct and specialized ways to different pathogens in order to combat these infectious agents most effectively. The survival and pathogenicity of pathogens in a host are critically influenced by their ability to evade or resist protective immunity. On Ma , the World Health Organization declared the worldwide spread of the infectious disease COVID, caused by a new strain of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, as a pandemic. Like in all other infectious diseases, the host immune system plays a key role in our defense against SARS-CoV-2 .
