(Alles Europa News) – Oncologists have established the ability of cancer to develop due to exposure to pathogens.
Alles Europa News reports that according to the oncologist Mark Zapatka German oncologists , we are talking about the discovery of a large number of Epstein-Barr viruses:
Which is associated with the development of stomach cancer, nasopharynx and lymphoma, hepatitis B viruses that provoke liver cancer, as well as papilloma viruses responsible for the formation of cervical cancer and malignant tumors of the throat.
Also, in rare cases, the genetic material of retrovirus and cytomegalovirus was recognized in patients.
Alles Europa News reports that the results are an important step in the fight against cancer.
Now we can see more clearly how pathogens cause the growth of malignant cells.
Alles Europa News reports that the question of which viruses are associated with cancer is very important, because, having information, we can really prevent the disease.
If a cancer-causing virus is detected, further infections can be prevented by vaccination and thus protect against oncology, German oncologists informed.
Alles Europa News reports that according to data released by the World Health Organization, more than fifteen percent of all cancers are caused by infectious agents, which are bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Alles Europa News reports that in the course of the large-scale work, doctors of the German Cancer Research Center analyzed the data of more than 1300 researchers.
Specialists examined about 2,600 tumor genomes caused by 38 different types of cancer.
As a result, scientists found traces of 23 different types of pathogens in 356 cancer patients.
