Infectious Diseases and Cancer

Cancer is a complex group of diseases with multiple causes. Thus, learning more about the known causes of cancer is still an important issue. Moreover, among all these factors, infection and its association to cancers is controversial. Infectious agents, such as hepatitis B (HBV), C viruses (HCV), Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), Human papillomavirus (HPV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Streptococcus bovis (S. bovis) and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) contribute to the pathogenesis of different cancers. These cancers include hepatocellular carcinoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, Kaposi sarcoma, adenocarcinoma, lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, cervical cancer. Screenings of infectious diseases in cancer patients may open up the areas of research in the identification of optimizing cancer control strategies.
