Oncoviruses are cancer-causing viruses that play a leading role in the development of certain cancers by contributing to genetic changes that result in the disruption of cell cycle machinery, interfering with certain key functions such as cell growth. Human viral Oncogenesis has common traits: 1. Oncoviruses are required but not sufficient for cancer development. 2. Virus-associated cancers appear in the context of persistent infection and occur many years to decade after acute infection. 3. The immune system can play protective or damaging effect, with some human virus-associated cancer increasing with immunosuppresion and others appear in the context of chronic inflammation. Oncoviruses: cellular and molecular virology presents a state-of- the - art review based on a number of original research covering some interesting aspect of oncoviral infections and its oncogenetic process. The book is made of sixteen must read chapters. It begins with discussion on the molecular epidemiology of human oncoviruses. It explores several other essential oncoviruses associated topics, including: oncoviruses and the immune system, envelope antigens of oncoviruses, oncoviral integration: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)as a model, evolution and pathogenesis of HTLV, the P53 antigen, HPV oncoprotein, viral-host interaction in HBV-associated HCC, Kaposi's sarcoma associated herpes virus, and utilization of flow cytometry in the development of therapeutic agents. It will be of interest to virologists, oncologists, public health specialists and palliative care specialists.

Cancer-causing viruses, also called oncoviruses, play a key role in the development of certain cancers. They contribute to genetic changes that disrupt the cell cycle machinery, interfering with functions such as cell growth. Cancer-Causing Viruses and Their Inhibitors presents a plethora of research from internationally reputed contributors who discuss different types of oncoviruses, their mechanisms of invasion and growth, and their life cycles. The book begins with an overview of the oncoviruses discovered to date and includes a brief description of their structures, genotypes, replication, and mechanisms of infection leading to cancers. It then explores several of these viruses in detail, including: Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) Hepatitis C virus (HCV) Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) Human papilloma virus (HPV) Human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8)/Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpes virus (KSHV) Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV/AIDS) Oncolytic viruses This book is an essential reference for those working in virology, oncology, and biotechnology. The discoveries presented will enable researchers and clinicians to optimize both historical and current approaches to anti-viral therapies.

This book aims to provide the reader with a complete understanding of the development of oral cancer by explaining the role of a wide variety of implicated risk factors and identifying their gene targets and key regulators. Some of the discussed risk factors are well known, including smoking, alcohol, betel quid chewing, and oncoviruses such as high-risk human papillomaviruses and Epstein-Barr virus; however, careful attention is also paid to less widely recognized factors, such as Qat chewing and yerba Mate consumption. The book concludes by describing and evaluating the most important strategies currently available for the prevention of oral carcinogenesis in humans. In presenting the most up-todate research and knowledge on these topics, this book will serve as a valuable source of up-to-date information for oncologists, cancer scientists, and medical students.
