Viral Cancer I’ve written often about the fact that 99% of Glioblastoma and 92% of Medulloblastoma show active CMV infections  and show signs that CMV has hit and run certain tumor cells making genetic and epigenetic changes.  

Now researchers are testing Neuroblastoma for CMV and the latest research shows 100% of the tumors showed signs of CMV or cyclomegalovirus.  This continues to reinforce that brain cancers key consistent factor is the triggering of oncogenisis  is by a viral infection that over expresses oncogenes and disables key anti-oncogenes thus driving these devastating cancers and leads towards potential opportunities for new and less devastating treatment options including using anti-virals like Valcyte.
