The Second Meeting of the British Society for Immunology Tumour Immunology Affinity Group (TIAG) took place at King's College (London, UK) on 17-18 June 1997 and brought together over 100 tumour immunologists from the UK and abroad. In contrast to previous meetings the focus of the meeting was on the role of adhesion in immunosurveillance and tumour dissemination. In addition, recent achievements in the areas of chemokines, cytotoxic T-lymphocyie (CTL) and natural killer (NK) cells, co-stimulation, gene and adoptive immunotherapy were also addressed. The purpose of this report is to outline current trends in tumour immunology.
