Cancer immunotherapy is a rapidly evolving field and the search for appropriate targets to come up with robust immunotherapeutic strategies for the treatment of cancers is a continuous process. Viral-like proteins are known to have an important role in the oncogenesis and their potential as cancer therapeutic targets is yet to be completely explored. In this report we summarized different aspects of viral-like proteins such as their biology, their role in cancer and gave an insight into strategies that can be adopted to target these proteins for the treatment of cancer.
