The rapid and continuous upsurge of interesting data in the subject of tumor immunology necessitates the publication of an annual series to furnish the updated materials to the students, researchers, and clinicians in this rapidly advancing field. Concepts and methodologies are ever changing. Also, current research in tumor immunology promises to offer breakthroughs in the future. Important is the need to communicate to the right people the exact role of immunodiagnostic methods and immunological intervention in cancer prevenยญ tion and treatment. The role of immunotherapy in combination with convenยญ tional modalities of treatment needs to be understood in its proper perspective. Oncogene, interferon, lymphokines, monoclonal antibodies, natural killer cells, platelet-mediated cytotoxicity of antibody-coated target cells, suppressor cells, platelet-derived factors, plasma-blocking factors, control of suppressor cell funcยญ tion, abrogation of plasma-blocking factors, and so forth, are some of the areas that are continually advancing. Progress in these areas will have implication in cancer therapy. Further, it is already understood that if immunocompetence of the host can be maintained at a reasonably good level, there exists the potential to increase the therapeutic indexes of conventional modalities of treatment. This series will attempt to present updated information in all these areas based on conยญ tributed and solicited articles
