In recent years the advances in immunology have been of such a magnitude that many medical practitioners find themselves unable to comprehend the current scope of immunology. Holborow's short treatise is a worthwhile attempt to bridge the gap between classical immunology and current immunological investigation. There are concise reviews of antibody structure, synthesis, and physiology. The cell-mediated immune responses are considered, including a short chapter on the lymphocyte. The role of the thymus in the genesis of the immune response and the induction of antibody syntheses are reviewed. The book ends with a consideration of tolerance and autoimmunity.
