HLA A2.1-restricted cytotoxic T cells recognizing a range of Epstein-Barr virus isolates through a defined epitope in latent membrane protein LMP2.

Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) responses induced by persistent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection in normal B-lymphoid tissues could potentially be directed against EBV-positive malignancies if expression of the relevant viral target proteins is maintained in tumor cells. For malignancies such as nasopharyngeal carcinoma and Hodgkin's disease, this will… CONTINUE READING
