Infection with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is an important factor in the genesis of the monoclonal B-lymphoid proliferation, African Burkitt’s lymphoma, lymphoproliferations in the immunosuppressed, and the epithelial malignancy, nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). We wished to analyze these and other proliferations in which EBV might be implicated for viral DNA content and expression and to identify cellular functions induced in the varied EBV-related disease states.
