According to the Global Cancer Observatory (GLOBOCAN) of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), funded by the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, the total number of cancer cases in both sexes attributable to infections amounted to 2,200,000 worldwide. Among the infective agents, the most common is Helicobacter pylori, responsible for 36.3% of infection-associated cancer cases, followed by the Human Papillomavirus (31.1%), the Hepatitis B virus (16.3%), the Hepatitis C virus (7.1%), and others (9.3%). The aim of this Special Issue is to increase knowledge concerning these oncopathogens; relevant clinico-pathological and therapeutic progress, including novel vaccines; and all those interactions among pathogens which depress the immune system, thus promoting the cancer onset.
