The EBV viral glycoprotein gp350 has been proposed as a candidate antigen for an EBV vaccine. However, the proposed formulations of these vaccines have not taken into account the presence of two unique EBV strains (EBV-1 and EBV-2) present in areas of high incidence of the EBV associated cancer, Burkitt's lymphoma.

Epstein-Barr virus is a worldwide disease that can cause a wide range of human diseases, the person will become a lifelong carrier of the virus once infected. To investigate the mechanism of Epstein-B...
Chromogenic Epstein-Barr virus-encoded RNA (EBER) in situ hybridization (EBER-ISH) is the gold standard to detect Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) but it is difficult to use in conjunction with immunohistoche...
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a causative agent of infectious mononucleosis and is associated with 200,000 new cases of cancer and 140,000 deaths annually. Subunit vaccines against this pathogen have fo...
Some patients with genetic defects develop Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD)/lymphoma as the main feature. Hypomophic mutations can cause different clinical and la...
RATIONALE: Donor lymphocytes that have been exposed to Epstein-Barr virus may be able to help the body kill cancers associated with this virus. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effecti...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the immune responses associated with Epstein-Barr virus infections, and to find out the possible immunodeficiencies that may be linked to severe...
RATIONALE: White blood cells that are treated in the laboratory with Epstein-Barr virus may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Biological therapies, such...
RATIONALE: T lymphocytes treated in the laboratory may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells in patients with Epstein-Barr virus infection. PURPOSE: This ph...
RATIONALE: The Epstein-Barr virus can cause cancer and lymphoproliferative disorders. Valganciclovir is an antiviral drug that acts against the Epstein-Barr virus. Phenylbutyrate may make ...
A common, acute infection usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN). There is an increase in mononuclear white blood cells and other atypical lymphocytes, generalized lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, and occasionally hepatomegaly with hepatitis.
Epithelial hyperplasia of the oral mucosa associated with Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) and found almost exclusively in persons with HIV infection. The lesion consists of a white patch that is often corrugated or hairy.
A genus of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, subfamily GAMMAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting B-cells in humans and new world primates. The type species human herpesvirus 4 (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) is better known as the Epstein-Barr virus.
An angiocentric and angiodestructive lymphoproliferative disorder primarily involving the lungs. It is caused by an Epstein-Barr virus-induced transformation of the B-cells, in a T-cell rich environment. Clinically and pathologically it resembles EXTRANODAL NK-T-CELL LYMPHOMA.
Nuclear antigens encoded by VIRAL GENES found in HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 4. At least six nuclear antigens have been identified.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
