text book resulted from enormous effort, respectabile knowledge
and hudge experience of all deserving, persistent and productive
Prof. Jasenko Karamehic MD, Prof. Zehra Dizdarevic MD, and 45 authors
of different specialities, associates from B&H, prestigious
american Universities Yale and Harvard and Croatia. As authors mentioned
in Introduction, thay accepted challenge of writing the text book
in one of the most complicated part of medicine, clinical immunology,
which developed from humble begins to now days more than enviable
level of development.
immunology is one of pioneer all embracing text books from that
area, on territory of ex country and Balkans. It is written on 816
pages A4 format, and through basic and clinical/ special part logicaly
exposed in 5 parts and 42 chapters with 194 images, 149 charts,
22 graphic charts, and with few thousand "fresh" references,
index and appendix of color photographies.
is devided in 5 sections: Basic immunology, Autoimune desease, Clinical
Immunology, Transplantation immunology and Immune Laboratory Metodes.
Text book of Clinical Immunology pragmatically elaborate recent
achievement in basic and clinical immunology, ethiopatogenesis od
desease deveopment, which results with immunological desease with
tendency to detact symptoms as soon as possible and starts treatment
to prevent destruction of the organic sistems and tissues in early
stage of the desease.
transplantation, one of the most comprehensive chapters of this
book, is highlighted not only from medical but also from ethical
aspect, as well as difficulties in this area for all participants
in the transplantation team in preparing of donor and patient for
transplantation, which is additional quality of the book.
and updated literature which embrace major number of recent references,
is quoted after each chapter of this excellent book, which consider
the most important issues on this problem in world and in our coutry.
Since new data are revealed fast in this area, used literature involve
latest references and basic literature. That allows, interested
reading audience to find best data in any immunological problem,
and to find the way to enlarge thair knowledge.
Manuscript "Clinical Immunology" by author Prof. Jasenko
Karamehić MD and Prof. Zehra Dizdarević MD and associates, satisfy
the criteria of the university book and totally accomplish demands
of educative-scientific literature in immunology. Authors accepted
hard assignment to exstensive and very complex matter of immunological
process, explain in very acceptable ant totally understandable way,
introducing the reader gradually to basic knowledge in basic immunology,
to clinical manifestations of desease, diagnoses and
treatment of the deseases in early stage of the disease, before
structural changes of affected organs and tissues.
Using fluent and understandable language and explaining complicated
processes of immunological events in human body, they succeeded
to adjusted, the subtle processes of immunological respond and disorders,
to the reader. Introduced data infiltrate in molecular structure
of vairous component of immunological response, and in clinical
significance of various component and reactions which take place
in body (organism) in normal processes body defence as well as in
specific desease, than diagnostic possibilities of technics of verification
this complicated disorders and possibilities of treatment of deseases.
level experts and excellent pedagogue participated in this text
book and with thair accessible style explained this sophisticated
matter to wide auditorium, specialities of all areas of medicine,
as well as pharmacists, dentists, veterinarians, biologists and
pregraduated and postgraduated students. Educators and associates
will have manuscript which will make education and practical exercise
book is primarily intend for those medical experts who deal with
clinical implications of disturbed immunological response. However,
immunology like pharmacology, specialy clinical, is conected with
all parts of medicine and it will be very importat for all profiles
of pregraduated and postgraduated students for all parts of medicine
so I warmly recomend it to all interested readers.
is pleasure for me to recomend this manuscript for publishing as
