Key concepts

Scholarcy highlights

  • Tumor immunotherapy modifies tumor cells so that they become more foreign to the host
  • By the process of xenogenization of tumor cells infected with a nonlytic budding murine virus, the regression of tumors is caused when inoculated into normal hosts owing to an acquisition of virus-specific antigen that is foreign in the host
  • Studies performed on tumor cells that have been infected with a nonlytic budding virus are summarized in the chapter
  • It discusses the acquisition of a virus-specific new antigen in tumor cells
