Persistent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection is controlled tightly by virus-specific T cells. EBV infection is reactivated intermittently over time, even in apparently healthy carriers. Changes in frequency and reactivity of memory T cells, particularly of CD8(+) origin, have not been assessed in this context. It is hypothesized that viral reactivation is(More)
Monitoring replicative Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection still remains a challenge in modern laboratory routine. The immediate-early protein BZLF1 mediates the switch between latent and replicate forms of EBV infection. The aim of this study was to analyze the feasibility of BZLF1 mRNA detection in saliva as a marker for active replication of the virus.(More)
