Ghost came across this interesting figure on Cell Science and would like to take this opportunity to talk about tumor microenvironment. 

A route towards tumorigenesis

Tumor microenvironment is dynamic battlefield between tumor and immune system. This long-lasting ba...

First things first, the proposed classification are immune suppressing and immune escaping. Now let's go back for some specifics.

Immuno-oncology cycle

The whole immuno-oncology (IO) process can be briefly described as the following cycle. 

Tumor cells release neoantigen...
