Title Immunology and immunotherapy of intrinsic glial tumors
Date 1990
Description Immunological aspects of glial neoplasms have been actively investigated for the past several years with particular focus on academic, diagnostic, and therapeutic objectives. As more knowledge is acquired about the cellular events relating to tumor behavior the more it appears that the immune system is a pivotal tool for tumor evaluation. Conceivably, it may prevail as the ultimate resource in combating tumor growth. In this light, it behooves all neurosurgeons to understand the basic functional concepts of the immunological system and its relevance to neoplastic growth. Current standard therapies have surely done little to improve the poor prognosis manifest in patients with malignant glioma.74
