A possible link between inflammation and cancer development was first reported by Rudolf Virchow in 1864 when he made an observation that inflammatory cells frequently infiltrate solid tumors (1). Despite these early observations of infiltrating inflammatory cells within tumors, oncogenic processes and malignant transformation are investigated independently of the immune system in earlier studies.
