Irrespective of the ethnic origin of the patient, nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), appears to stimulate the production of IgA antibodies against VCA. These antibodies are detected at high frequency and titres in sera from NPC patients but only rarely from control subjects. A majority of relapse-free survivors tested 1-12 years after radiotherapy (RT) sustain a detectable level of IgA anti-VCA. Serum titres of IgA anti-VCA remain relatively unchaged in individual NPC patients after RT, regardless… CONTINUE READING
