Immunoediting: evidence of the multifaceted role of the immune system in self-metastatic tumor growth.Enderling, Heiko.
Background: The role of the immune system in tumor progression has been a subject for discussion for many decades. Numerous studies suggest that a low immune response might be beneficial, if not necessary, for tumor growth, and only a strong immune response can counter tumor growth and thus inhibit progression.
