Summary
& Quot;General Principles of Tumor Immunotherapy: Basic and Clinical Applications of Tumor Immunology" brings together the world??'s leading authorities on tumor immunology. This book describes the basic immunology principles that form the foundation of understanding how the immune system recognizes and rejects tumor cells. The role of the innate and adaptive immune responses is discussed and the implications of these responses for the design of clinical strategies to combat cancer are illustrated through both experimental clinical trials and review of current standard of care therapeutic
