New York City  – Demos Medical Publishing, an imprint of Springer Publishing, is pleased to announce the recent publication of Cancer Immunotherapy Principles and Practice, an authoritative textbook covering all aspects of cancer immunobiology and the immunotherapy treatments that harness the immune system to combat malignant disease.

Marincola, MD, FACS) presidents of the Society for the Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC), covers all major topics that have shaped the development of immunotherapy and propelled it to its current place at the forefront of cancer treatment innovation.
