An authoritative survey of the scientific background for therapeutic cancer vaccines, the challenges to their development, and their current uses in treating cancer. The authors examine the basic issues that effect all vaccines (such as immune adjuvants and prime-boost strategies), describe the methods for antigen discovery, and review the preclinical development phases for each major vaccine strategy. They also spell out the clinical results for cancer vaccines now beginning to be used in the treatment of many common cancers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in tumor immunotherapy. It is truly a comprehensive review of vaccination strategies for the treatment of cancer. The third section looks at the results of vaccine-based clinical trials for various malignancies. This section is an exceptional reference for oncologists. The chapters on melanoma are particularly helpful in sorting through the saga of vaccination for this deadly disease. The concluding section, important for clinical researchers, focuses on clinical trial design, the analysis of immune responses, and vaccine regulatory issues.
