The treatment of cancer is being revolutionized by drugs that modulate the immune system, offering the prospect of long-term response and extended survival for many patients with advanced incurable cancer. A plethora of new drugs are being incorporated into current standards of care but many questions remain unanswered – and new ones emerge – about how to use these exciting new drugs to best effect. A good understanding of immune-oncology is therefore becoming increasingly important to keep up to date with this rapidly changing field.

Fast Facts: Immuno-oncology takes you from the fundamentals of immunology through to the new concepts of immunoediting and immunotherapy and likely future directions. Whether you are a practicing oncologist, oncology health professional, medical student, cancer researcher or industry professional, this book provides all you need to know about immuno-oncology, concisely summarized.


  • Components of the immune system
  • How cancers evade the immune system
  • How cancer immunotherapy works
  • Clinical use of immune checkpoint inhibitors
  • The future of immuno-oncology
  • Useful resources

First congratulations on this very helpful summary. By chance I needed to gain a current overview of this fast evolving area and this book was just the ticket!
One initial question concerning the role of chronic inflammation in cancer development covered on page 15 – how early in the progression of a cell from normal to cancerous does inflammation exert a significant effect?
