Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Viruses are contagious agents made up of a piece of genetic material, such as DNA or RNA, that are enclosed in a coat of protein, with the ability to infect a variety of living organisms. Viruses can infect humans and animals, causing serious diseases. Following studies in 1911 on the Rous sarcoma virus (RSV), a retrovirus that causes cancer in chickens, the field of tumor virology has expanded worldwide, with the information that certain types of DNA and RNA viruses, known as tumor viruses or oncogenic viruses, can lead to cancer. Extensive studies have been performed on tumor viruses and their linked malignancies, leading to important findings on managing infections with tumor viruses and their associated cancers. This Special Issue aims to collect recent investigations on tumor viruses and their resultant cancers. We encourage the submission of original research articles, including preclinical and clinical studies, and reviews that make a novel and substantial contribution to the scientific community.
