The discovery of multiple oncogenic viruses during the 20th century has revolutionized the health sciences, laying the foundations for a deeper biopathological understanding of multiple cancer types and the development of preventive and therapeutic strategies. The development of vaccines for human papillomavirus is a well-known example that currently delivers worldwide health benefits. In the field of veterinary sciences, bovine papillomavirus and other papillomaviruses remain an important health problem, calling for additional research efforts. Despite progression in recent decades, other tumor viruses like the enzootic nasal tumor virus, enzootic bovine leukosis, the rabbit myxoma virus, Marek's disease virus or feline leukemia virus are also associated with significant morbidity and mortality in domestic and wild-animals.
Further efforts are needed to improve our knowledge of many tumor viruses that affect domestic and wild animals, and to support the veterinary community in its goal of controlling those agents and their related lesions.

Therefore, we cordially ask researchers working on this field all over the world to contribute to the present Research
Topic which will bring together original research articles, review articles and perspectives on all animal tumor viruses, aiming to support research in the field of tumor viruses.

The scope of this Research Topic includes, but is not limited:
• Viral epidemiology
• Diagnostic and monitoring methods
• Virus-host interactions including viral pathogenesis and pathology
• Disease prevention including vaccination
• Disease therapy and management


Keywords: pathology, tumour viruses, tumour, virus


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
