Part of the Contemporary Topics in Immunobiology book series (CTI, volume 15)


During the past 15 years there has been an increased interest in tumor-associated antigens (TAA) and the potential clinical role their immunologically oriented markers may play in the management of human cancer. One such immunological test for human tumor-associated markers, the identification of circulating immune complexes (CIC), is the subject of this volume.
