THE oncogenic potential of herpesviruses has been demonstrated in several species and herpesviruses have been strongly implicated as aetiological agents of various human neoplastic diseases1,2. The extreme heterogeneity of human populations makes genetic analysis of mechanisms of host resistance to neoplastic disease in man a difficult task. Another herpesvirus, Marek's disease virus (MDV), is the aetiological agent of a naturally occurring lymphoma of chickens, Marek's disease (MD) (for review… CONTINUE READING
