Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection persists for life in humans, similar to other gammaherpesviruses in the same lymphocryptovirus (LCV) genus that naturally infect Old World nonhuman primates. The specific immune elements required for control of EBV infection and potential immune evasion strategies essential for persistent EBV infection are not well defined. We evaluated the cellular immune response to latent infection proteins in rhesus macaques with naturally and experimentally acquired… CONTINUE READING
