About this book

Cancer Immunology is intended as an up-to-date, clinically relevant review of cancer immunology and immunotherapy. This volume focuses on the immunopathology and immunotherapy of organ cancers in detail. It clearly explains their immunology and describes novel immunotherapy for specific cancers, including pediatric solid tumors, hematologic malignancies, gastrointestinal tumors, skin cancers, bone and connective tissue tumors, central nervous system tumors, lung cancers, genitourinary tract tumors and breast cancers. In so doing, it builds on the previous two volumes in Cancer Immunology, placing basic knowledge on tumor immunology and immunotherapy into a clinical perspective with the aim of educating clinicians on advances in cancer immunology and the most recent approaches in the immunotherapy of various tumors. This translational, clinically oriented book will be of special value to clinical immunologists, hematologists and oncologists.
