The fields of innate immunity have recently undergone a great transformation. From relatively minor research areas on invertebrates, they have developed into promising fields of investigation these last thirty years. This book aims to show the filiation of results, and thus ideas, concerning innate immunity, since Pasteur (1865), via Metchnikoff (the discoverer of phagocytosis, Nobel Prize) and his collaborators at Pasteur Institute, to end in the works of J. Hoffmann, Nobel Prize 2011. These last team has truly bridged the gap between innate immunity in Invertebrates and in Vertebrates
  • Presents the transformations experienced by the domains of innate immunity
  • Shows the lineage of these results
  • Bridging the gap between innate immunity of invertebrates and that of vertebrates
