This paper is concerned with analytical investigations on the competition between cancer cells and immune system cells. Specifically the role of the B-cells and T-cells in the evolution of cancer cells is taken into account. The mathematical model is a Kolmogorov-type system of three evolution equations where the growth rate of the cells is described by logistic law and the response of B-cells and T-cells is modeled according to Holling type-II function. The stability analysis of equilibrium points is performed and the persistence of the model is proved.
