Cancer Immunology (Immunology and Medicine) by R.A. Robins,Robert Rees

By R.A. Robins,Robert Rees

This book presents a entire account of the recognized teams of human tumour antigens, and the immune effector cells eager about tumour rejection. Chapters facing all of the significant teams of human tumour antigens are incorporated, overlaying differentiation antigens, testes-associated antigens, Cea, mucin, viral antigens, anti-idiotypic antibodies as antigens, and fusion proteins. The position of warmth surprise proteins as mediators of tumour immunity is mentioned and attention is given to the immune mechanisms which mediate tumour rejection in either human and animal platforms. the applying of antibody concentrating on to spot cancers, and the mechanisms wherein tumours dodge immune detection and/or destruction is roofed intimately. even though the focal point of this booklet is experimental, as with different contemporary guides growth in medical immunotherapy is integrated in a few element, to supply postgraduate and post-doctoral scientists with in-depth stories of the field.
