About the Authors
  • This volume reviews advances in the field of human tumor immunology, particularly in relation to the potential for immune intervention in preventing or treating tumors. The editors and contributors, all leading workers in the field, survey advances in the understanding of the relationship between the cancer cell and the immune response. Chapters review in depth the function of immune surveillance and mechanisms of tumor immunity, the role of T lymphocytes and oncogenes in the immune response to cancer, and the potential for immunotherapy of cancer. New areas of tumor immunology are presented, including recent progress in the development of tumor vaccines with particular reference to melanoma.

    • Authoritative guide to revolutionary changes in the field
    • This is a key area: cell biology and treatment (particularly the search for cancer vaccines)
    • Editors and contributors are world-class clinical scientists

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: ' … will serve as a good text-book on cancer immunology and/or an excellent reference source on its individual topics. It can be recommended to clinicians, researchers and even undergraduates wishing to deepen their knowledge of this field.' Anton B. Alexandfoff, Immunology News

    Review of the hardback: ' … an excellent source of information which will be most helpful to the clinicians involved or interested in the various clinical vaccine trials that have been or will be implemented in the next five years.' J.-C. Cerottini, Annals of Oncology

    Review of the hardback: ' … there is much to commend the book. It will appeal mainly to clinicians and scientists who have some basic knowledge of cancer and immunology.' J. A. Ledermann, Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

    Review of the hardback: ' … a balanced overview of the state-of-the-art, with special emphasis on the new potential for cancer immunotherapy … an excellent source of information'. Annals of Oncology
