Tumor Immunology

  • G. Parmiani
Conference paper


The session on tumor immunology included 25 posters of high scientific level, although unavoidably heterogeneous as far as the subject was concerned. To discuss at least most of these contributions, I decided to group them according to the following topics:
  1. 1.

    Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules of tumors as determinants of tumor progression and metastasis (both in mouse and man)

  2. 2.

    Tumor-associated or tumor-specific antigens in murine (B16, Eb), rat (colon carcinoma), and human tumors

  3. 3.

    Mechanism(s) of NK and macrophage reactions to metastasis; factors which may suppress lymphocyte activation in metastatic cancer patients
