Special Issue Information

In this special issue, we propose to speak about the relationship between the neoplastic phenotype defined at different levels of the biological organization (molecular, cellular, tissue) and the mechanism of generating an anti-cancer immune response. The existence of unexpected so-called favorable course of neoplastic processes (e.g. melanoma, kidney cancer, etc.), even of a very individual nature, provokes reflection on the quite exceptional contribution of the immune system in these cases. In the presentation of research results and concepts, we propose to take into account the effect of vitamin D, the beneficial effect of which on the course of the neoplastic process is widely published. We believe that focusing of knowledge on the mechanisms of such influence seems to be one of the top scientific issues. We welcome original experimental research, review articles and commentary articles leading to a better understanding of the participation of the immune system in an extremely favorable clinical courses of neoplastic process. Potential new therapeutic targets continue to be of particular interest, especially in the context of the possibility of influencing the immune system in malignant neoplastic diseases.
