Editors' quotes

Franco M. Buonaguro, MD

Franco M. Buonaguro
“Cancers related to infectious diseases represent a very significant component of the cancer burden in humans spanning from 20% of all malignancies in industrialized countries to 40% in developing countries. Studies on pathogen-related cancers allow the identification of mechanisms relevant to oncogenesis as well as molecular markers for diagnostic/prognostic methods and targets for therapeutic strategies. Furthermore their relevance is due to the concrete possibility of preventive strategies, which are always cost-effective and can usually be implemented with relatively modest investments. The open access policy of Infectious Agents and Cancer represents a key factor to foster an even participation and contribution by Western as well as Eastern/Southern Countries' colleagues.”

“Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide. The International Agency for Research on Cancer estimates that about 20% of cancers in developed countries and close to 30% of cancers in developing countries have an infectious etiology. These statistics articulate the imperative to study the epidemiology, biology, and response to treatment of infection-associated cancers to establish sound evidence-based approaches to cancer public policy, prevention, and treatment. The open access policy of Infectious Agents and Cancer represents a key component in the broad efforts to foster, accelerate, and reduce disparity in access to scientific information by scientists, public health authorities, and policy markers worldwide.”
