The Antibody Molecule follows the extraordinary journey of the medics and scientists who shaped the course of medical advances in the field of immunology. One of the oldest of the medical sciences, immunology has a history that has seen chemists, physicists and biologists alike seeking to unravel the most complex system in the human body outside the brain. This book charts its intriguing history, from the genetic basis of antibody diversity, through the understanding of the mechanism by which the immune system's first line of defence works, to breakthroughs in crystallography and the exploitation of immunoglobulins as therapeutic platforms to treat cancer, inflammation and allergy.

Tracing the developments in immunology in chronological order, Professor Antony R. Rees presents the historical contexts of the periods in rich detail, bringing them to life with quotes and illustrations. This fascinating book examines the literature of the time, turning points, and controversies. A must read for immunologists and life scientists, as well as historians of science and medicine.
Industry Reviews
The Antibody Molecule is a marvelous synthesis of pertinent scientific literature from the late nineteenth century to the modern day, by someone who has an intimate firsthand knowledge of what it is like to have worked in this field. * - Neerja Sankaran, ISIS (A Journal of the History of Science Society) *
An enjoyable read and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about the stories that lie behind the modern textbook understanding of the antibody molecule and its therapeutic applications. * Mike Clark, Reader in Therapeutic and Molecular Immunology (Retired), University of Cambridge; British Journal of Cardiology, 22 (25), 2015 *
