|Description||The immune system plays a central role not only in fighting infections, but also in many other diseases and medical conditions including cancer. The study of the immune system has lead to significant findings in many fields of medicine and biology and has resulted in the discovery of novel and unique substances and reagents that are now widely used for diagnosis, evaluation and therapy of different malignant diseases. The development of prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines, as well as innovative combinatorial immunotherapeutic approaches has substantially decreased mortality and morbidity and improved the life, life expectancy, and the well being of the millions of patients.
