It discusses the biological basis of disease at genetic, molecular, cellular, and epidemiologic levels. New to This Edition: * Tissue-specific interventions to arrest or cure autoimmune disease * Bone marrow eradication and replacement * Both basic science and clinical medicine is covered * Boxed points to emphasize key features of each chapter.
