Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is associated with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and can be detected by in situ hybridization (ISH) of viral nucleic acid (EBER) in tumor cells. We sought to determine whether plasma EBV-DNA could serve as a surrogate for EBER-ISH and to explore its prognostic utility in HL. Specimens from the Cancer Cooperative Intergroup Trial E2496 were(More)
We studied the presence of Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus sequences in cell-free DNA (cfDNA) isolated from the blood of patients with AIDS-related Kaposi sarcoma (KS) and primary effusion lymphoma (PEL). The use of paramagnetic beads linked to methyl-CpG binding domain protein allowed separation of virion and cell-derived DNA. Only virion DNA was detected in(More)
The Na+,K(+)-ATPase and the sarcoplasmic/endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-(SERCA-) ATPase belong to a family of P-type ATPases that undergo a cycle of conformational changes between the phosphorylated and dephosphorylated stages in an ion-specific manner. The ouabain-inhibitable Na+,K(+)-ATPase activity requires Na+ and K+. On the other hand, the(More)
