abstract

  • Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS) signified the AIDS epidemic in the 1980's and led to the discovery of the eighth human herpesvirus, KS-associated herpesvirus (KSHV), as the causative agent for this disease. Today we know a lot about KSHV and can begin to understand, diagnose and treat KS as a viral disease rather than another sarcoma.
