The main debate in cancer immunology now centres on the more fundamental issue of tumor-specific antigens rather than debates over the viability of the immunosurveillance theory of cancer. Although significant effort has been made to show the existence of these antigens, their role in cancer in general has not been established. Most research has focused on the serological investigation of three tumour types: human malignant melanoma, mouse sarcoma, and mouse leukaemia. From this work, a preliminary taxonomy of the surface antigens expressed by these tumours is beginning to emerge. The few examples of Class 1 antigens that have been now been serologically characterised on mouse and human tumours are the leading candidates for antigens that can be called tumour specific

Cancer immunotherapy, also known as immuno-oncology, involves activating the immune system to treat cancer and enhance its inherent capacity to combat the illness. It is an application of basic cancer immunology research and a developing field of oncology [1]. Cancer immunotherapy takes advantage of the fact that cancer cells frequently include tumour antigens, chemicals that can be recognised by immune system antibody proteins and bind to them. Frequently, proteins or other macromolecules act as the tumour antigens (e.g., carbohydrates). Normal antibodies bind to external pathogens, whereas modified immunotherapy antibodies bind to tumour antigens, detecting and tagging cancer cells for the immune system to suppress or kill [2]

The most well-known application of cancer immunology, where the immune system is used to treat cancer, is cancer immunotherapy. Cancer immunology is an interdisciplinary area of biology that examines the function of the immune system in the genesis and progression of cancer. Burnet and Thomas developed the concept of cancer immunosurveillance in 1957. They suggested that lymphocytes serve as sentinels, identifying and destroying continuously emerging, immature altered cells. Cancer immunosurveillance appears to be a crucial host defence mechanism that lowers cancer incidence rates by preventing carcinogenesis and maintaining constant cellular homeostasis. Additionally, it has been proposed that the primary role of immunosurveillance is to be a part of a broader process of cancer immunoediting [3].

Various types of immunotherapy for cancer spread too many people over the 17th and 18th centuries. Septic dressings encapsulating ulcerative tumours were used to treat cancer in the 18th and 19th centuries. Purulent sores were purposefully made; surgical scars were left exposed to encourage the spread of infection. When an American surgeon named William Coley infected patients with [Streptococcus pyogenes] who had incurable tumours, one of the most well-known effects of microorganisms on cancer was documented in 1891. In a careful search of the literature at the time, Coley discovered 38 accounts of cancer patients who experienced iatrogenic or unintentional feverish erysipelas. The sarcoma or carcinoma had entirely vanished in 12 individuals; the remaining patients had made significant progress the process of cancer immunoediting involves the immune system interacting with tumour cells. Elimination, equilibrium, and escape are its three stages. The "three Es" of cancer immunoediting are frequently referred to as these stages. Immunoediting involves both innate and adaptive immune systems. [4]

The immune response causes the tumour cells to be destroyed during the elimination phase, which suppresses the tumour. Some tumour cells, however, may develop more mutations, alter their traits, and avoid the immune system. These cells may enter the equilibrium phase, in which the immune system does not recognise all tumour cells but the tumour does not enlarge at the same time. This circumstance could trigger the phase of escape, where the tumour takes control of the immune system [5]


In this review, we provided a brief overview of the biological importance of inflammasomes in different forms of cancer. Activation of inflammasome sensors is largely beneficial in colitis-associated colorectal cancer largely owing to the epithelial healing effects of the IL18 signaling pathway, regulation of cellular proliferation, maturation and cell death, and maintenance of a healthy gut microbiota. Identification of novel tumor-suppressive mechanisms of inflammasome sensors pushes the boundaries of the traditional roles of inflammasomes.

PCR-based process

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based measure catalyst connected immuno-sorbent examine (ELISA) and instruments depend on broad advancement (up to 24 h) to create an adequate number of cells for discovery. Following improvement, the measure requires DNA intensification and identification. The whole cycle from advancement through discovery might require a few hours to days . On account of test readiness processes and auxiliary lab hardware (shakers, hatcheries, microplate perusers) such identification framework may not be pragmatic as PONT gadgets. One more usually used innovation depends on one or the other norm or ongoing PCR (qPCR) contingent upon the instrument and takes up to 3.5 h for recognition. The framework is restricted to utilizing PCR technique in this manner incapable to play out different biomarkers location.
