Summary "Cellular Immune Mechanisms and Tumor Dormancy features the work of internationally recognized experts from various disciplines as they discuss the phenomenon of tumor dormancy in humans. Animal models are described in which cellular and molecular components of the immune control of dormancy have been identified, and the relevance of these models to human cancer patients is recognized. Data derived from studies of organ transplantation, adjuvant chemotherapy, radiotherapy, anaesthesia, surgery, and whole blood transfusion is presented to show the vulnerability of cellular mechanisms maintaining dormancy. The potential for increasing the incidence of dormancy in micro metastases is also shown for non-small cell lung cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia. Cellular Immune Mechanisms and Tumor Dormancy is an important reference volume that will benefit researchers from many disciplines, including immunologists, pathologists, surgeons, and clinicians"--Provided by publisher
