Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a highly lethal disease that is histologically characterized by a dense desmoplastic reaction (DR) surrounding malignant epithelial cells. The DR is composed of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, fibroblasts, stellate cells, endothelial cells, immune cells, and neurons. Accumulating evidence indicates that the epithelial and stromal compartments interact to enhance the aggressive nature of this disease.

In this volume, we seek to explore novel mechanisms of cellular transformation by oncogenic viruses, the role of viral infection in cancer development in understudied body sites and the potential role of novel viral pathogens in cancer development.

Metastasis is the major cause of cancer-related death. The mechanism underlying metastasis is complicated and poorly understood. Recent advances in tumor metastasis research have led to improved diagnosis and clinical management of cancer.

Mammography remains at the backbone of medical tools to examine the human breast. The early detection of breast cancer typically uses adjunct tests to mammogram such as ultrasound, positron emission mammography, electrical impedance, and others.
