BMC Cancer is calling for submissions to our Collection on viral carcinogenesis, addressing the role of viruses in cancer development. Viruses like Epstein Barr, KSHV, and HPV are known oncogenic agents, shaping various human cancers. Understanding how these viruses disrupt normal cellular processes and promote cancer is crucial for prevention and treatment. This Collection focuses on the latest research in viral carcinogenesis, encompassing topics such as molecular pathways of viral-induced oncogenesis, emerging oncogenic viruses, viral-immune system interactions, virus-associated cancers, viral vaccines for cancer prevention, tumor microenvironment modulation, and novel therapeutics.
This collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being.
