The researcher said that their finding that immune surveillance by T cells enables early detection and elimination of these cancerous and pre-cancerous cells provides an answer to this puzzle, and proves that immune surveillance is essential to preventing the development of this blood cancer.
Advancing age, coupled with the onset of other chronic illnesses, and exposure to various environmental toxins (and even some medications), means that your immune system's ability to carry out immune surveillance wanes.
When blood flow is reduced, immune surveillance in those organs is also reduced and oxygen and nutrient delivery is depressed.
To survive their hosts' immunological defenses, microorganisms manage to fine-tune their hosts' immune responses--they suppress these responses enough to allow their own survival, but leave some immune surveillance to prevent uncontrolled growth (which would kill the host).
Iron also modulates immune effector mechanisms, such as cytokine activities like interferon gamma (IFN-[gamma]) effector pathways towards macrophages, nitric oxide (NO) formation or immune cell proliferation, and thus host immune surveillance.
Among their topics are immune surveillance in cancer, Castelan's disease, naso-pharyngeal cancer diagnosis and management, viral hepatitis and hepato-carcinogenesis, simian virus 40 and human malignancy, and abnormalities of the coagulation system associated with HIV infection.
NK cells normally play a central role in immune surveillance against the metastatic spread of cancer.

Due to the severe clinical manifestations found in XLP patients, intense efforts had recently focused on elucidating the signaling mechanism used by SAP to regulate in cells involved in immune surveillance against cancers.
Advanced age might be considered as one of the predisposing conditions, secondary to decreased immune surveillance.
We speculate that the well-known phenomenon of UV-mediated suppression of immune surveillance can be causally related to this unusual increase in active HPV infection.
