Cancer Immunology

As stated earlier, caner research is an interdisciplinary subject; Cancer Immunology is a branch of science which deals with the role of host immunity and its behaviour to the growth of the cancer.

Immune system helps us in fighting against the foreign invaders. However cancer cells not being foreign cells to the host are very difficult to be identified by the host immunity as threat. Only when the cancer cells start to release certain molecules which are specific to the cancer cells, host immune cells try to act against the cancer cells.

Cancer immunosurveillance is considered to be the only reliable host mechanism against the Tumor growth in the human body by inhibiting the carcinogenesis and also maintaining a regular cellular homeostasis.
