Immunoglobulin (Ig) A and/or IgG reactivities to several Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) antigens have been used to facilitate diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). However, antibodies against gp78, an EBV membrane glycoprotein, have not been examined to this day. In this study, we utilized Luminex multi-analyte profiling (xMAP) technology to analyse(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether enterovirus RNA can be demonstrated in archival necropsy material in acute myocarditis. DESIGN Analysis of paraffin embedded myocardial tissue from cases of acute myocarditis. SETTING University virology department. METHODS Extraction of RNA from tissue followed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and DNA sequence(More)
Assessment of antibody responses to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) antigens has been used to assist in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) diagnosis by several methods. In this study, we evaluated an in-house Luminex multianalyte profiling (xMAP) technology and commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits for serological examination of EBV-specific(More)
