The aim of this study was to investigate the possibility of vertical Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) transmission. We developed two nested-PCR methods for amplifying distinct regions of EBV DNA (BNRF1 and BamHI W) in circulating lymphocytes. Nested PCR was applied to samples obtained from 67 mother-infant pairs within 1 week of birth. We also tested samples from 16 neonates born to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected mothers to determine whether HIV increases the potential risk of vertical EBV… CONTINUE READING
