Epstein-Barr Virus DNA recombination and loss in sporadic Burkitt's lymphoma.

Abstract

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) antigens in tumor tissue define associations of virus with human malignancies and provide clues as to mechanisms of viral oncogenesis. In Burkitt's lymphoma, EBV markers are absent from 85% of sporadic cases and 4% of endemic (African) cases, raising questions as to the exact role EBV in the disease. Standard screening criteria may… (More)
