Example text

Two patterns of viral oncogenesis have been described. In both instances the viral genome is incorporated into the cellular DNA. In the first, the virus has genes, oncogenes, which quickly ‘transform’ the cell in culture and cause tumours in vivo. The action of the oncogene dominates the cell. In the second, the virus acts slowly and tumours take longer to appear. These viruses do not transform cells in culture. Biology of cancer 27 B Retrovirus Plasma membrane Viral RNA RNA Reverse transcriptase Retrovirous Viral DNA Integration Nucleus (y) (x) Provirus A Cell DNA Carcinogen mRNA Genomic RNA Viral protein Viral glycoprotein Virus release by budding Fig.

When this same, previously screened, population undergoes subsequent screening procedures, the number of new, incidence, cases is much smaller and the cost per case detected therefore greater. The problem is simply summarized in Fig. 11. The objective of screening is simple yet there are many problems and assumptions involved. 1 What is the sensitivity of the test used? Highly sensitive tests are essential if the disease is curable early and if the consequences of a false positive test are not Number of people Normal Early epithelial changes Carcinoma of the cervix (includes those who might not have progressed) Non-invasive cancer Prostate cancer Cancer Metastasis Clinical breast cancer Fig.

Others rapidly transform cells and are usually Fig. 4 Oncogenes and malignant transformation. In stage A, a normal cell has a low level of proto-oncogene activity producing a growth factor (x), or a differentiation protein or a receptor (y). Carcinogens increase the activity of the protooncogene and give rise to neoplastic transformation. Alternatively, infection with a retrovirus leads to insertion of viral promoter sequences or oncogenes (B) and excess oncogene activity, also resulting in neoplastic transformation.
