Cancer Causing Viruses and Their Inhibitors
The WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer estimated that in 2002 17.8 percent of human cancers were caused by infection. Oncoviruses play a key role in the development of certain cancers by contributing to genetic changes. This book presents a plethora of research into the cancer-causing viruses and their inhibitors. The contributors review different types of oncoviruses, their mechanisms of invasion and growth, and their life cycles. The discoveries presented in this volume will enable researchers and clinicians to access historical and present approaches to anti-viral therapies.
