Cancer is an extremely complex disease process whose biologic behavior and progression depend largely on a constantly evolving interplay between a tumor and its microenvironment. The immune system plays a critical role in the surveillance and prevention of malignancy. It is only when malignant cells develop mechanisms to escape the immune system that they become clinically significant tumors.
Knowledge of the basic mechanisms of the immune system as it relates to cancer has been increasing rapidly, leading to medical breakthroughs for many cancer patients. Understanding the relationship between tumors and the immune system is an active area of research, and new therapies are constantly evolving to augment or alter the immune system to work against malignancies.
very nice and descriptive information regarding the tumor immunology, it has helped a lot
I've chosen to give these points because Prof. Peter Delves explains in a concise and simple way, so has a student I can understand in detail all panorama. So that is the reason why I've chosen Lecturio. And loved the way Prof. Peter Delves explains. Best Regards, David Wentacem
very good pacing, clear, and well structured course. Thank you !
immunology can be quite difficult to follow at times but this lecturer made it quite precise and concise
