Immunology can be broadly described as the study of cells and molecules which recognize and evoke responses to antigens or ligands through Innate or Adaptive Immune mechanisms. The dynamic processes of Immunology therefore embrace studies of immune regulation, cytokines, chemokines, interferons and other growth factors, lymphocytes and their subsets i.e T-cell subsets, immunogenetics, immune signaling, host defense, autoimmunity, and inflammation. As a discipline, Immunology spans the market sectors of Research, Diagnostics and Therapeutics. Monoclonal antibodies and engineered antibodies are critical modern tools used in virtually all branches of science in addition to Immunology where monoclonals for CD Markers for example have accelerated all aspects of the Immunology field especially through Flow Cytometry. Interleukins, Interferons, and Growth Factors, and antibodies to their receptors are now utilized as therapies. Cellular therapies involving stem cells, T cells and Dendritic Cells are intensely studied in clinical trials and offer tremendous advances beyond well-established bone marrow transplants for treatments of cancer.
