Abstract

Some viral proteins expressed by Human Polyomaviruses (HPyV) are known to be able to cause cancer. Besides Merkel-Cell-Polyoma-Virus (MCV), four new human polyomaviruses have been identified in the last years. In 2010, the Sixth and Seventh HPyV (HPyV6 and HPyV7) were discovered(2) . Similar to MCV, HPyV6 and HPyV7 seem to be constituents of the human skin microbiome. Co-infecting HPyVs may therefore act as a co-factor in the development of cancers, including those induced by other oncoviruses. Despite these observations, their role in cancer remains controversial. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
