Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV or HHV8) sequences are present in primary effusion lymphomas (PEL). KSHV1 cell lines have been established from such lymphomas. Here we report the first description of the establishment of a KSHV1, EBV2 cell line (BCP-1) from the peripheral blood of a patient with PEL. Using this cell line and a KSHV1, EBV1 PEL… CONTINUE READING
