[COX-2 as an early diagnostic marker of virus-associated human malignant neoplasms].

Abstract

The review analyzes recent data and current ideas on the enzyme cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) as a possible biomarker of virus-associated human malignant neoplasm. Possible mechanisms of COX-2 activation in the cells infected with oncogenic human viruses, such as hepatitis B virus, Epstein-Barr virus, and human papillomavirus are considered in detail.
