Janeway’s Immunobiology by Kenneth Murphy. Janeway s Immunobiology is a textbook that introduces the immune system in all its aspects to undergraduates, and also provides a treatment of the subject that is comprehensive enough to be useful to graduate students interested in research, and to medical students focused on clinical applications.
The Eighth Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and is available Janeway s Immunobiology is a textbook that introduces the immune system in all its aspects to undergraduates, and also provides a treatment of the subject that is comprehensive enough to be useful to graduate students interested in research, and to medical students focused on clinical applications.
The Eighth Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and is available in both print and e-book formats. Janeway s Immunobiology continues to set the standard for currency and authority with its clear writing style and organization, uniform art program, and scientific accuracy.
It presents a consistent point of view throughout that of the host s interaction with an environment containing many species of potentially harmful microorganisms. The full-color art program is conceptually coherent and illustrates the processes and mechanisms underlying the concepts in the text. The 16 chapters in this readable, accessible textbook are organized and presented in such a way as to help deliver a complete one-semester immunology course, beginning with innate immunity, then moving to adaptive immunity, and ending with applied clinical immunology.
Discussion questions are provided at the end of Textbkok 2 to These questions can be used for review, or as the basis for discussion in class or in informal study groups. Summaries conclude each section and each chapter.
Janewat in previous editions, a caduceus icon in the margins indicates topics which are correlated to Case Studies in Immunology, Sixth Edition by Geha and Notarangelo. New in the Eighth Edition Innate immunity has been updated and expanded and is now presented in two separate chapters Chapters 2 and 3as well as being further emphasized in the rest of the textbook.
Chapter 2 covers antimicrobial peptides and the complement system, and Chapter 3 deals with cellular innate receptors and cell-mediated innate immunity e.
TLRs, phagocytosis, NK cells, interferon production, innate-like lymphocytes. The section on complement has been reworked and reconceived explaining the lectin pathway first making it easier to teach by placing it into the context of innate recognition. Evolution is now incorporated throughout the text, helping students see similar strategies used by different organisms.
The text and figures of Chapter 7 Signaling Through Immune System Receptors have been revised to present a cohesive synthesis of signaling for immunology, focusing on improved illustration of antigen recognition signaling and lymphocyte activation.
Signaling through other receptors is dealt with wherever appropriate throughout the book. Updated chapter on B-cell immune responses Chapter 10especially on trafficking of Janewya cells in peripheral lymphoid organs e.
Coverage of mucosal immunity Chapter 12 has been brought up to date, including responses to the commensal microbiota and the role of specialized dendritic cells and the regulatory T cells janfway maintaining tolerance to food antigens and commensal bacteria.
Chapter 13, Failures of Jzneway Defense Mechanisms, has been reorganized and revised to structure an understanding of primary immunodeficiencies in the context of developmental pathways. Chapter 16, Manipulation of the Immune Response, has been heavily revised to include a greater emphasis on clinical issues and a complete update of immunotherapeutics and vaccines. Many new and revised immmunobiology illustrate the processes and mechanisms underlying the concepts presented in the text.
The icons used have been updated and expanded to incorporate a new emphasis on signaling pathways. New references have been added throughout the text. Paperbackpages.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Oct 26, Bilge B rated it liked it Shelves: Good one but the subject is a bit all over the place. Can get confuseing sometimes. This book was a really accessible text for immunobiology.
I saw some complaints about the subject matter being really all over the place and things not being explained, but I think this is dependent on what your goal is with this book. If you are looking for an immuno textbook to self-teach or leisure read why would you do that?
Janeway’s Immunobiology by Kenneth Murphy
One thing about the subject matter is that it is a complicated web of interactions that do not progress in a very orderly fashion. So subsequen This book was a really accessible text for immunobiology. So subsequently, texts explaining it also do not progress in very orderly fashions. The first chapter of textboo book gives a very broad overview without much in-detail explanations. Its like one of those maps you see sketched on the inside cover of janewqy fantasy novel.
It means nothing to you jneway you’ve read more of the text, its there to refer back to later. I found this to be quite helpful because it adds a bit of repetition and because it gives a nice condensed overview that you can then read over when you are studying and see how much of the additional information not included in the overview you remember.
Overall, I recommend it as a good immuno text but I would suggest to be a bit flexible in the order in which you read the chapters and to supplement the text with a course of some kind. Additionally, I have found that many immuno texts focus a lot on patient presentation and particular immunkbiology types of infection. Perhaps this is what peple disappointed with the book were looking for?
This is a biology book, so the focus is less on immunomedicine and pathology and more on immunobiology like the title says. Textbook writing style itself is extremely hard to follow and full of jargon that is not explained properly. The only good thing I can say about this book is that it’s color scheme is much more pleasing than most biology books and its diagrams look less meme-y.
I would rather use it to make collages than I would read it. Jan 31, Lisa rated it really liked it. You immunobioloby truly appreciate how difficult it is to write coherently about Immunology until you take an Immunology class and become desperately dependent on a textbook to give you some semblance of comprehension on the subject. What was once a confounding jumble of randomly assorted numbers and letters suddenly becomes clear.
Because this is such a fast-paced field, however, there were a few figures that are now inaccurate. But despite this, it remains the quintessential text for Immunobiology. Dec 10, Jason Janewzy rated i,munobiology it was amazing. Janeway’s Immunobiology was an extremely well-written, comprehensive and tractable immunology textbook. I am not an immunologist by training and Textboo picked up this text so I could teach myself some immunology in my spare time.
I though the text and figures were very clearly presented and I have a nice general grasp of innate and adaptive adaptive responses. I especially appreciated all the cross-referencing between chapters.
Sep 29, Ndidi Njoku rated it liked it. This book is very confusing. I had to read the first few chapters at least three times to fully understand what was happening. The information is all over the place. Concepts aren’t explained well. Overall, it’s poorly written but I like textbiok material. If you’re using it as a textbook, I recommend having janewzy source to supplement it.
