The immune system effectively prevents cancer, whereas severe immunodepression increases its incidence. Cancer immunoprevention is a strategy based on the concept that enhancement of tumor immunity in healthy individuals reduces cancer risk. It can be viewed as a kind of chemoprevention. For cancer immunoprevention, the cancer universe can be neatly divided between tumors caused - directly or indirectly - by infectious agents and all other tumors. Immunoprevention of tumors caused by infectious… CONTINUE READING
