A groundbreaking piece of work, Virus Therapy of Human Cancers surveys possible research pathways for the treatment of human cancer and examines the regression of tumors in virally-infected patients. This text inspects the rational development of oncolytic viruses through genetic modification of influenza A viruses, lists more than fifty oncolytic adenovirus preparations, and assesses the engineering of these viruses acting in tumor cells with eliminated or disabled RB or r53. Featuring the contributions of nearly thirty leading authorities in their field through personal narrative accounts, illustrations and case studies, this is a worthwhile companion for anyone interested or working in this area.
