Description

Immunological Implications and Molecular Diagnostics of Genitourinary Cancer provides an update of recent accomplishments, unifying concepts, and future challenges to study tumor-associated immune cells, with an emphasis on genitourinary cancers.

The presence of inflammatory immune cells in human tumors raises a fundamental question in oncology: How do cancer cells avoid the destruction by immune attack? In principle, tumor development can be controlled by cytotoxic innate and adaptive immune cells; however, as the tumor develops from neoplastic tissue to clinically detectable tumors, cancer cells evolve different mechanisms that mimic peripheral immune tolerance in order to avoid tumoricidal attack. Focusing on an interdisciplinary audience of immunologists, molecular biologists, virologist and cancer researchers.

Immunological Implications and Molecular Diagnostics of Genitourinary Cancer covers the shortage in the research of the immunological implications of genitourinary cancer and bridges the gap for a comprehensive view of cancers especially the genitourinary cancers diagnosis, cellular mechanism and therapy.

Key Features

  • discusses the impact of the immune system on the initiation, progression and treatment of cancer
  • provides insight in the important role of the suppressor genes and oncogenes in genitourinary cancers
  • shows the advantages of combining clinical issues of urologic cancers with immunological techniques, like immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence
  • proofs the implications genitourinary cancer has on the human innate immune system
