Assume "A" and "B" have identical (lung) cancers. If some of B's cancer
is surgically introduced into A's lung, would there soon be an "A-B"
cancer which A's immune system would then recognize as an intruder and
attack? Could this mutated "A-B" cancer then be transplanted back into B
and likewise be attacked? Please advise.
