Fourteen patients who developed B cell lymphomas or lymphoproliferative lesions after kidney, liver, heart, or heart-lung transplantation in Pittsburgh during 1981-1983 had active infection with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) of the primary (six patients), reactivated (seven patients), or chronic (one patient) type.

Thus the frequency of active infection was… CONTINUE READING
