    00:01 Let’s explore the field of tumor immunology.

    00:05 The field of tumor immunology really involves several different things.

    00:09 First of all, like any cell in the body, cells of the immune system can themselves become malignant cells.

    00:18 They can transform into tumor cells.

    00:21 A second aspect is whether naturally there is an immune response that develops when a tumor arises.

    00:29 Just like an immune response develops to an infection.

    00:34 And then finally, the possibility of harnessing components of the immune system to attack tumors.
