Immune system and cancer

Organised by René Lefever and Jacques Urbain, at the instigation of Professor Ilya Prigogine, the seminar “Immune system and cancer” brought together chemists, biologists and physicians (see detail below).

The interventions covered four main themes:

  • Regulatory mechanisms in the immune system and growth control
  • Cancer, immunity and metastasis,
  • Cell mediated immune responses
  • Manipulation of the anti-tumor immune response
