About this book

Introduction

AIDS-associated viral oncology is a significant healthcare problem. Since the identification of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated acquired immune disease syndrome (AIDS), the role of viruses in human cancers has become acutely apparent over the past twenty years. The understanding and treatment of AIDS-associated cancers has become a major concern among healthcare organizations. Human cancers that were once rare in the population have now become common within the HIV infected population.

Experts share their collective knowledge and examine the clinical and biological aspects, including viruses well established in their roles, as well as emerging new viruses. This volume will be a resource for both members of the scientific and healthcare community and active researchers in this field.
