The study and understanding of the immune system in the development of cancer and its progression is known as cancer immunology. It aims for obtaining deep understanding between cells of the immune system with the cancer cells or tumors as it is important for the invention of new cancer treatment methods or therapies. Research in cancer immunology has led to the development of cancer immunotherapy where the immune system is itself used for treating cancer and looked for its cure. It has also led for identification of cancer antigens or tumor antigens, helped in understanding mechanisms of tumor evasion from the immune response, cancer immunoediting, immuneosurveillance. Cancer immunosurveillance and immunoediting are related to protection against development of tumors in animal systems and also for identification of targets for immune recognition of human cancers. Studies in cancer immunology focuses on understanding the immune microenvironment, where multiple cells like regulatory T cells, myeloid-derived suppressor cells which usually accumulate in tumors show molecular interactions in the tumor microenvironment and inhibit the antitumor immune responses.
