Debemos un agradecimiento especial a las personas que ofrecieron ideas perspicaces, que proporcionaron revisiones detalladas que llevaron a mejorías importantes, y que proporcionaron el apoyo para hacer posible la escritura de este libro. Estos colaboradores notables incluyen al Dr. Stephen Emerson, Dr. David Allman, Dra. Susan Saidman, Dr. Nan Wang, Nicole Cunningham y los muchos estudiantes de pregrado que proporcionaron inestimables perspectivas de estudiantes a nuestros capítulos. Esperamos que el producto final refleje la alta calidad de las aportaciones de estos expertos y colegas, y de todos los listados a continuación que proporcionaron análisis y guía cruciales.

También agradecemos a los autores previos de inmunología de Kuby, cuyos valiosos esfuerzos ahora apreciamos aún más profundamente. Su compromiso para la claridad, para proporcionar el material más actualizado en una disciplina que avanza con rapidez, y para mantener el enfoque experimental de las exposiciones establecieron el estándar que es la base para lo mejor de este libro.

También reconocemos que este libro representa el trabajo no sólo de sus autores y editores, sino también de todos aquellos cuyos experimentos y escritos nos proporcionaron ideas, inspiración e información. Agradecemos a ustedes y recalcamos que todos los errores e inconsistencias de interpretación son sólo nuestros.

Agradecemos a los revisores que siguen por sus comentarios y sugerencias acerca del manuscrito durante la preparación de esta séptima edición. Su experiencia y conocimientos han contribuido mucho al libro.
