Figure 1: A diagrammatic representation of tumor microenvironment. Immune cells infiltrate into the tumor microenvironment and play a complex role in shaping the progression of tumor. Antigen presenting cells (dendritic cells and macrophages) capture tumor antigens and activate the immune system by recruiting T cells, B cells, and NK cells. However, the presence of suppressive cells like myeloid derived suppressor cells and regulatory T cells (Tregs) can hamper this process. Tumor cells deploy several mechanisms to inhibit the action of antitumor immune cells and escape from immune-surveillance
