About this book


This volume explores the still undiscovered secrets of tumor immunology and cancer immunology by discussing the methods and techniques that world-renowned experts in the field use in their laboratories.  This book provides a better understanding of the rules governing tumor and cancer immunology, and discusses innovations in the technology of the immunological “smart bullets” (monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, tumor-reactive T cells) used to specifically target cancer cells. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Thorough and cutting-edge, Tumor Immunology: Methods and Protocols contains a wide breadth of subject coverage that any scientist, clinician, or industry professional interested in this field will find valuable.
