Cancer immunotherapy - Wikipedia
Cancer immunotherapy (sometimes called immuno-oncology) is the artificial stimulation of the immune system to treat cancer, improving on the immune system's natural ability to fight cancer. It is an application of the fundamental research of cancer immunology and a growing subspeciality of oncology exploits the fact that cancer cells often have tumor antigens, molecules on their surface

Personalized T cell-mediated cancer immunotherapy: progress and challenges
Immunotherapy: a new paradigm for cancer treatment. The field of cancer immunology grew from tumor transplantation studies in syngeneic mice e studies (reviewed in Ref. ) provided evidence for the immunosurveillance hypothesis, which posited that tumors express ‘new antigenic potentialities’ arising from somatic mutation and that these antigens are specifically targeted by the
