About this book

Cancer Immunology is intended as an up-to-date, clinically relevant review of cancer immunology and immunotherapy. This volume is focused on immunopathology of cancers. The interactions between cancerous cells and various components of the innate and adaptive immune system are fully described. The principal focus, however, is very much on clinical aspects, the aim being to educate clinicians in the clinical implications of the most recent research and new developments in the field. Over the past decade, understanding of the interactions between the immune system and cancerous cells has increased markedly, leading to the development of combinatorial immunotherapeutic strategies to combat cancer. This translational, clinically oriented book will be of special value to clinical immunologists, hematologists and oncologists.

Reviews

“This book will provide up to date information about various aspects of tumor immunology. It will be useful to both clinical and experimental oncologists. Accordingly this book should be available through libraries in printed or on-line version for all in need for excellently collected survey of information about tumor immunology.” (Katarina Polakova, Neoplasma, Issue 3, 2015)
