The human immune system has successfully evolved to fight many pathogens. Through vaccination, we can harness and improve immune responses to eradicate infections. Despite this success, we are only now beginning to understand the natural tumor immune surveillance mechanisms and why, in some instances, our immune system fails to abrogate the development and growth of tumors. Encouraging results with the latest immunotherapies have renewed enthusiasm in the field. A central component of these… CONTINUE READING
