Recent advances in immunology and molecular biology have resulted in new therapeutic approaches being generated and implemented in cancer clinics. The discovery of new antigens, mechanisms of antigen presentation, and interplay of cells involved in anti-tumor immunity have made the clinical control of some cancers more plausible than previously thought. An invaluable source for clinicians, researchers, and students, Tumor Immunology presents an introductory overview of the immunology of cancer including therapeutic approaches. Topics covered include the immune recognition of cancer-tumor antigens, humoral recognition of cancer, and the immunotherapy of cancer.
