Tumor Virology and Immunology:
Environmental factors like tobacco smoke, radiation, and pollution increase cancer risk. Biological factors like genetics and infections, like HPV, hepatitis B, and C, also contribute to cancer development. Chronic inflammation from infections and other factors contributes to cancer. Understanding these relationships is crucial for effective prevention and treatment strategies.
Tumor immunology studies the relationship between immune function and cancer cells, revealing the complex mechanisms underlying cancer growth. The human immune system responds to immunogenic tumor cells through various steps, including presenting antigens, priming, infiltration, and recognition, development of effector and memory T cells, and humoral immunity.
