Many tumors are immunogenic. This is indicated by the ability of sensitized recipients to reject a challenge of syngenic tumor cells and by the detection of humoral and cellular immune responses in vitro. Tumor-specific antigens are responsible for these phenomena. They have been demonstrated most clearly in neoplasms induced in experimental animals by large doses of chemical carcinogens or by oncogenic viruses. Whether spontaneous tumors and tumors induced with small doses of chemical carcinogens express such antigens remains controversial. Many human neoplasms, however, appear to be immunogenic, which has led to a massive effort to identify the antigens responsible, with a view to cancer diagnosis and therapy (for a review, see Hellström and Brown, 1979).
