Tumor Specific Transplantation Antigen reviews the theories, methods, and experimental findings in the field of immunobiology of tumors with particular focus on the tumor antigen responsible for transplantation resistance.
The monograph presents discussions on the methods of induction of antitumor immunity; methods of detection of antitumor immunity; virus-induced tumors; the characteristics of TSTA; tumor growth and development of immunity; and the theoretical and practical possibilities of the presence of transplantation immunity against tumors in man.
Oncologists, cell biologists, immunobiologists, and medical researchers will find the book invaluable.
