    One thought on “Cancer Virus: The Discovery of Epstein-Barr Virus”

    1. The subject of this book is fascinating! I enjoyed learning about the history of the discoveries and how the medical community has developed a greater understanding of how viruses can relate to cancer. I particularly enjoyed the explanation describing how the eight EBV proteins made in malignant cells promote uncontrolled cell growth and how the selection of the proteins present varies by type of cancer. I look forward to reading about further research in this area. Ideally the book would have b [...]

    2. Fascinating read about the Epstein-Barr virus and its relationship to disease. Anyone interested in virology, oncology or epidemiology should find it intriguing.

    3. Written by 2 scientists so not real exciting but good with great stories about epidemiology and virology.
