This volume constitutes a comprehensive review of the different aspects of tumor virology 100 years after the discovery of the Rous-sarcoma virus. Its aim is to bring a greater focus on the contributions of viral agents to the development of cancer, and to create an up to date compendium of the general molecular biology of these viruses, átheir gene products, and targeted functions. The content of the book comprises general chapters which tie into the many aspects of cancer-related viruses and …

Abstract
This volume constitutes a comprehensive review of the different aspects of tumor virology 100 years after the discovery of the Rous-sarcoma virus. Its aim is to bring a greater focus on the contributions of viral agents to the development of cancer, and to create an up to date compendium of the general molecular biology of these viruses, átheir gene products, and targeted functions. The content of the book comprises general chapters which tie into the many aspects of cancer-related viruses and how they contribute to cell proliferation, the genes that are responsible for driving these cancers, and their mechanisms of transmission. The book also reviews the current knowledge on the molecular biology of large DNA viruses and describes the many different pathways through which they contribute to cell proliferation. Papilloma viruses and Adenoviruses, well known to be associated with invasive carcinomas, and hepatitis viruses, HTLV and retroviruses are also discussed. This volume is dedicated to Baruch Blumberg, an outstanding scientist and recipient of the Nobel Prize for the discovery of the hepatitis B virus, who was also the author of one of the chapters.

Abstract
Research on oncogenic viruses and related human cancers has advanced rapidly in the past decade. Most articles, however, focus on a specific oncogenic virus and cancer. There is consequently a need for a comprehensive, up-to-date monograph that offers broad and integrated knowledge. Viruses and Human Cancer From Basic Science to Clinical Prevention is designed to meet this need by providing an advanced overview on the basic and clinical aspects of oncogenic viruses and the human cancers that they cause. Virology, virus-induced inflammation and tissue injuries, oncogenic mechanisms, epidemiology, and current and emerging preventive and therapeutic strategies are all discussed in detail. In addition, the book covers the individual aspects of seven oncogenic viruses, i.e., hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, human papilloma virus, Epstein-Barr virus, human T-cell lymphotropic virus, Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpes virus, and Merkel cell polyomavirus, and the related human cancers. The susceptibility of high-risk hosts such as transplantation recipients is also addressed, and new vaccine developments are described.
