Inflammation is one of the predisposing factors known to be associated with Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) mediated tumorigenesis. However it is not well understood whether inflammation in itself plays a role in regulating the life cycle of this infectious agent. COX-2, a key mediator of the inflammatory processes is frequently over-expressed in EBV positive(More)
Epithelial–mesenchymal transition is an important mechanism in cancer invasiveness and metastasis. We had previously reported that cancer cells expressing Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) latent viral antigens EBV nuclear antigen EBNA3C and/ or EBNA1 showed higher motility and migration potential and had a propensity for increased metastases when tested in nude(More)
Chronic inflammation is recognized as a threat factor for cancer progression. Release of inflammatory molecules generates microenvironment which is highly favorable for development of tumor, cancer progression and metastasis. In cases of latent viral infections, generation of such a microenvironment is one of the major predisposing factors related to virus(More)
