Abstract

The immune system cells recognize and kill cancer cells by engaging the tumor antigens on the surfaces of cancer cells presented by the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). Cancer cells can escape from immune system cells recognition and/or killing by down-regulating the MHC expression through genetic or epigenetic mechanisms.
