Random mutations leading to loss of cell cycle control is not a rare occurrence in an organism but the mutatedcells are recognized and eliminated preventing the development of a tumor. These potentially tumorigenic cellsrelease damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs), which are recognized by toll-like receptors (TLRs) onmacrophages and dendritic cells. The initial TLR-DAMP interactions lead to different responses such as alteredantigen presentation and cytokine release that directly affect T cell activation and removal of the tumorigeniccells. The indirect effects of TLR-DAMP interaction include chemokine-directed altered T cell trafficking, an-giogenesis for both T cell infiltration and tumor cell metastasis, and alteration of intra-tumoral milieu con-tributing to the development of tumor cells heterogeneity. Thus, the initial TLR-DAMP interaction has a set oflocal effects that modulate tumor cell growth and heterogeneity and a disseminating set of central effects thatdynamically affect T cell trafficking and functions. Herein, we argue that the DAMP-TLR-cytokine axis in thetumor microenvironment serves as the mainstay that orchestrates and regulates the pro- and anti-tumor elementswhich dynamically interact between themselves eventuating in tumor regression or growth. The knowledge ofthis TLR-based immuno-surveillance framework is a key to developing a novel immunotherapy against cancer.
