Cancer Immunotherapy Principles and Practice - (Hardcover)
about this item
“Drs. Butterfield, Kaufman and Marincola on behalf of the SITC have created a comprehensive must-have resource covering the basic and translational science behind approved and investigational immune therapies, and disease-by-disease clinical application of the therapies, written by leaders in the field. The textbook will be highly valuable reading for those just entering the field and for experienced scientists and clinicians looking to expand their knowledge base.” —Mario Sznol, MD, Professor of Medicine (Medical Oncology), Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut
Cancer Immunotherapy Principles and Practice, from the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC), is the authoritative reference on cancer immunobiology and the immunotherapy treatments that harness the immune system to combat malignant disease.
Featuring five sections and over 50 chapters covering the Basic Principles of Tumor Immunology, Cancer Immunotherapy Targets and Classes, Immune Function in Cancer Patients, Disease-Specific Treatments and Outcomes, and Regulatory Aspects of Cancer Immunotherapy, this book covers all major topics that have shaped the development of immunotherapy and propelled it to its current place at the forefront of cancer treatment innovation.
This volume is a comprehensive resource for oncologists and fellows, immunologists, cancer researchers, and related practitioners seeking understanding of the basic science and clinical applications of cancer immunotherapy. As well as presenting the evidence for immune-based cancer treatment, it positions immunotherapy in the context of other available cancer treatments and provides data on response rates, risks, and toxicities across a variety of diseases. Filled with detailed tables, and instructive illustrations, as well as key points for quick reference, Cancer Immunotherapy Principles and Practice simplifies a challenging and dynamic subject.
