Antibody titers to Epstein-Barr virus antigens were determined in the sera of 372 atomic bomb survivors to evaluate the effect of the previous radiation exposure on immune competence against the latent infection of the virus. The proportion of persons with high titers (> or = 1:40) of IgG antibodies to the early antigen was significantly elevated in the… CONTINUE READING
