Research overview:
Latent adenovirus infection in the pathogenesis of lung cancer. Human adenoviruses are oncogenic in aminals, but have preriously not been demonstrated in human tumors. In the present study we're re-examining this problem using the polymerase chain reaction to test the presence of the EIA region of the adenovirus genome in DNA extracted from paraffin-embeddedlung cancer. We found adenovirus DNA in some cases of small cell lung cancer.
