Antibody titers against EBNA1 and EBNA2 in relation to Hodgkin lymphoma and history of infectious mononucleosis
International Journal of Cancer, 04/25/2012
Mueller NE et al. – Epstein Barr virus (EBV) nuclear antigens (EBNA) antibodies were not significantly associated with infectious mononucleosis (IM) history in Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) cases or siblings. These associations suggest that chronic or more severe EBV infection is a risk factor for HL, independent of IM history.
