In the 34 years since the isolation of Epstein-Barr virus there has been an accumulation of evidence linking some important human cancers and viruses. This book describes the molecular biology and pathogenesis of these viruses, including those only recently associated with human cancers. It provides an up-to-date account of the progress in our knowledge of the virus/host interactions which lead to cancer, as well as insights on the complexity of virus/host interactions in general, most of which have yet to be delineated. The volume also offers an historical perspective of cancer viruses as well as an examination of the geographical distribution and prevalence of cancers.
