This 1996 volume reviewed advances in the field of human tumour immunology, particularly in relation to the potential for immune intervention in preventing or treating tumours. The editors and contributors, all prominent workers in the field, survey advances in the understanding of the relationship between the cancer cell and the immune response at the time of publication. Chapters review in depth the function of immune surveillance and mechanisms of tumour immunity, the role of T lymphocytes and oncogenes in the immune response to cancer, and the potential for immunotherapy of cancer. Areas of tumour immunology that were new at the time of this book's publication are presented, including progress in the development of tumour vaccines with particular reference to melanoma. The volumes in this series are intended for a wide audience of clinicians and researchers with an interest in the applications of biomedical science to the understanding and management of cancer.
