After the success of the Catalan version, of which 3,000 copies have been distributed free of charge in libraries and education centres, the Esteve Foundation and the Spanish Society for Immunology is now publishing the Spanish version of the international book, Your amazing? immune system. How it protects your body, which seeks to bring immunology closer to secondary education students.
Written in educational language and full of informative illustrations, the publication by the Japanese Society of Immunology, first appeared in 2008. It was aimed at helping children aged 10 to 14 to better understand how the immune system works. After seeing the educational value of this initiative, the European Federation of Immunology Societies (EFIS), published Your amazing immune system in 2009, and a year later, the Esteve Foundation published the Catalan version.
It has now been adapted to Spanish and was officially presented on 26 April 2014 during the Immunology Day in Madrid, by José Ramón Regueiro, chairman of the Spanish Society of Immunology. The book can be downloaded free from the Esteve Foundation website (www.esteve.org).
Your amazing immune system firstly discusses the basic aspects of immunology and how the immune system works. The second part of the publication gives students a closer look at infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases and allergic reactions, to conclude with the role of immunotherapy in cancer treatment.
The Japanese edition was published by Shinobu Yamashita, of the Publishing department of Yodosha. The illustrations are by Tomoko Ishikawa and are exactly the same in this Spanish edition. The Spanish publication was revised by África González, Dolores Jaraquemada, José Antonio Brieva and Margarita del Val, of the Spanish Society of Immunology.
