DescriptionCancer Vaccines and Tumor Immunity offers a review of the basic scientific discoveries that have moved forward into clinical trials. Presented in the context of real-world human research and experimentation, these major scientific advances demonstrate how our understanding of immune activation, T-regulatory cells, and autoimmunity will impact cancer vaccine design. The authors also explain how vaccination in the context of bone marrow transplantation will open new avenues for clinical study in the future.
