Tumor Virology

The global Tumor Virology Market was at its remarkable at $14.99 billion and is envisaged to reach around $35 billion by 2018, developing at a significant CAGR of 18.5% in the predicted period of 2013 to 2018.

Viruses that cause or initiate cancers are called oncoviruses or oncornaviruses- as it was initially thought that only viruses with RNA origin cause cancers- but it now denotes any virus with either a DNA or a RNA genome initiating cancer and is now analogous to tumor virus or cancer virus. Multitude human and animal viruses generally do not evoke cancer because of archaic co-evolution between virus and humans.

World Health Organization's (WHO) -  International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in 2002 reported that approximately 17.8% of all human cancers were infection-initiated, with 11.9% of them being caused by viruses. Although these cancers can be easily prevented through vaccination, but only if diagnosed early with simple blood tests, and are then treated with less-toxic antivirals. In 1908, Vilhelm Ellerman and Olaf Bang from the University of Copenhagen, first established that avian sarcoma leukosis virus can be passed on even after cell-free filtration to susceptible chickens inducing leukemia. In 1910, Peyton Rous at Rockefeller continued Olaf Bang and Vilhelm Ellerman experiment to show filtrated cell-free transmission of sarcoma to susceptible chickens. While in 1964 Anthony Epstein, Bert Achong and Yvonne Barr identified the cardinal human oncovirus from Burkitt lymphoma cells, which was identified as a herpesvirus, and typically called Epstein - Barr virus or EBV.
