    Book Summary

    A balanced review of recent progress in understanding the immunologic aspects of xenotransplantation and zoonotic risks. • Addresses how the application of various immunosuppressive modalities might compromise the immunological competence of recipients and examines the relevant issues relating to zoonotic disease. • Considers the issues of host defense and zoonosis in xenotransplantation and points to the critical issues that must be addressed to make the process safe from the perspective of the patient and society as well as critical questions yet to be answered. • Serves as a resource for physicians, scientists, and those engaged in the development of policies for the field of xenotransplantation, especially with regard to zoonosis.
