Infectious Agents and Cancer
Publisher: BioMed Central
Infectious Agents and Cancer is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal
that encompasses all aspects of basic, clinical and translational research
providing an insight into the association between chronic infections and
There are established links between specific chronic infections and cancer.
Recent advances in genomic and proteomic technologies have accelerated the
discovery of novel pathogens, cancer antigens and the molecular pathways
involved in disease progression. Several new fields are developing very
rapidly, in particular the application of immunogenomics and
pharmacogenomics to fight specific cancers, targeting immuno-tolerated
cellular/viral molecules by immuno and drug therapy.
Infectious Agents and Cancer will cover all these areas of biomedical
research and any other topics pertinent to the development of therapies for
chronic infections and cancer. These include: profiling and activation of
dendritic cells; reactivation of the immune system; breaking immune
tolerance; modulation of the immune system by cytokines and drug delivery
