“During the last years increasing evidence implies that human cytomegalovirus (CMV) can be attributed to human malignancies arising from numerous tissues. In this perspective, we will review and discuss the potential mechanisms through which CMV infection may contribute to brain tumors by affecting tumor cell initiation, progression and metastasis formation. Recent evidence also suggests that anti-CMV treatment results in impaired tumor growth of CMV positive xenografts in animal models and potentially increased survival in CMV positive glioblastoma patients. Based on these observations and the high tumor promoting capacity of this virus, the classical and novel antiviral therapies against CMV should be revisited as they may represent a great promise for halting tumor progression and lower cancer deaths.”

The following article explains how CMV or Cytomegalovirus recreates the Hallmarks of Cancer. The following are all signs of cancer: high prevalence of cell growth signaling, evading and disabling growth suppression, resisting cell death procedures, thus enabling cell immortality, building new blood vessels and enabling invasion and thus metastasis.  Chronic inflammation also plays a role in cancer progression as well.  Now see Hallmark by Hallmark how CMV can recreate all of these drivers that together enable cancer.

“Higher serum levels of the main circulating form of vitamin D…, are associated with substantially lower incidence rates of colon, breast, ovarian, renal, pancreatic, aggressive prostate and other cancers.”
