This is the second edition of this proceedings. Contributors include leading names in the field of research, addressing mutiple topics, which were covered at the last Osteoimmunology conference.
Second edition will expand on first edition
Includes very recent information on the relationship between the immune and skeletal systems
Will bring together ideas of international scientists from both immunology and osteopathy
