Immunology is a very complicated topic that many people find intimidating. Nonetheless, many gastrointestinal diseases are immunological in origin or exhibit significant imunological components.

  The authors, clinical scientists at the Royal Free Hospital, London, have included four chapters dealing generally with immunology and the gut and 10 chapters describing immunologic aspects of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver. The presentation is attractive, and the well-drawn explanatory diagrams are instructive. Using a simple, in-home stool collection, the Gut Immunology test evaluates the immune response in the gut by measuring two biomarkers, calprotectin and eosinophil protein X (EPX). Calprotectin is highly sensitive for evaluating inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract and for making the distinction between IBS and IBD. By focusing on immunity at mucosal and body surfaces this book presents a fresh, new approach to the teaching of immunology. After an introduction to the basic structure of the immune system, the book looks at two important families of signalling molecules: cytokines and chemokines, before covering the workings of the mucosal immune system. Your gut microbiome, which scientists are finding plays a critical role in immunity; Your gut microbiome is the community of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms living within your digestive tract. They not only break down food into nourishment, but also send warning signals to our body’s immune system when they sense danger.

  The first parts of the book give an introduction to basic immunology, followed by a more in‐depth discussion of the special features of the intestinal immune system. These sections take the reader from fundamental concepts, through the mechanisms of immune function in a concise and always readable manner.
