Viruses are the causes of approximately 25% of human cancers. Due to their importance in carcinogenesis, there is a desperate need for a book that discusses these viruses. This book is therefore timely, providing a comprehensive review of the molecular biology of oncogenic viruses and the cancers they cause. Viruses that are discussed in the individual chapters include hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, human papilloma viruses, Epstein–Barr virus, Kaposi's sarcoma virus and human T-cell leukemia virus type 1.This book provides up-to-date information for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical students, physicians and non-experts who are interested in learning more about the oncogenic viruses and how they cause human cancers.Sample Chapter(s)Foreword (38 KB)Chapter 1: Oncogenic Viruses,Cellular Transformation and Human Cancers (211 KB)Contents: Oncogenic Viruses, Cellular Transformation and Human Cancers (Y-Y Zheng & J-H J Ou)Hepatitis B Virus and Hepatocellular Carcinogenesis (T S B Yen)Molecular Mechanism of Hepatitis C Virus Carcinogenesis (K Machida et al.)Human Papillomaviruses and Associated Malignancies (C L Nguyen et al.)Epstein-Barr Virus and Its Oncogenesis (H-P Li et al.)Human Kaposi's Sarcoma-associated Herpesvirus: Molecular Biology and Oncogenesis (P J Dillon & B Damania)Human T-Cell Leukemia Virus 1 and Cellular Transformation (Y-H Chi & K-T Jeang)Readership: Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in infectious diseases, microbiology/virology, oncology/cancer research, and cell/molecular/structural biology; medical students, physicians and non-experts who are interested in understanding the relationship between oncogenic viruses and the cancers they cause.
