About this Book

This book provides an overview on research in tumor immunology. It analyzes the molecular and cellular mechanisms of tumorgenesis and the instruments of the immune system that might be exploited for therapy.
Major contributors to the field analyze the molecular and cellular mechanisms of tumorigenesis, evaluate the instruments of the immune system, summarize their clinical experiences, and discuss new strategies for cancer treatment. Researchers in the field of immunology, tumor biology and medicine will find this up-to-date volume invaluable for evaluating future research activities.
