Recent developments, particularly in molecular biology, have produced fresh insights into how cancer relates to infectious agents, novel tools for its diagnosis, exciting possibilities for vaccines, and new targets for therapy. In Infectious Causes of Cancer: Targets for Intervention, James J. Goedert and a team of leading experimental and clinical researchers provide critical, integrating surveys of those viruses, bacteria, and parasites that are now known to play a major role in cancer-work that opens the way toward novel therapeutic targets. The contributors focus on five types of human carcinogenic infection-herpesviruses, retroviruses, papillomaviruses, hepatitis viruses, and H. pylori-and review in depth the associated malignancies, as well as how these new diagnostic and therapeutic technologies may be implemented. Cutting-edge and cross-disciplinary, Infectious Causes of Cancer: Targets for Intervention provides clinical oncologists and infectious disease specialists, as well as clinical researchers, with insightful reviews of cancer induction by infectious diseases and the high promise of closely targeted new therapeutics and vaccines
