    In the century preceding the discovery of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), physicians speculated that a common clinical syndrome characterized by fever, tonsillar adenopathy, splenomegaly, and mononuclear leukocytosis termed glandular fever was caused by a pathogen (1). In , the name infectious mononucleosis (IM) was introduced by Thomas P. Sprunt and Frank A. Evans Cited by: 1. The human herpesvirus, Epstein–Barr virus (EBV), has classically been associated with two pathologies with frequencies approaching %. One of these, Burkitt's lymphoma (BL), is of B-cell origin and the other, nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), is Cited by:

      the epstein-barr virus (ebv) is best known for causing mononucleosis, but less often it can lead to other diseases, including: * ear infections and diarrhea in . HE Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) was discovered 36 years ago by electron microscopy of cells cultured from Burkitt’s lymphoma tissue by Epstein, Achong, and Barr. 1 Four years later, in , EBV was shown to be the etiologic agent of hetero-phile-positive infectious mononucleosis. 2 EBV DNA was detected in tissues from patients with nasopha-.

      EBV has been a virus of interest since almost day one in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). In fact, at one point, EBV was such a hot topic that ME/CFS was called for a time “chronic Epstein-Barr virus” disease. While studies have generally failed to find evidence of EBV reactivation, EBV has never fallen out of . The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), also called Human herpesvirus 4 (HHV-4), is a virus of the herpes family (which includes Herpes simplex virus and Cytomegalovirus), and .

Ablashi, A. Faggioni, et al. | 4 Oct Researchers found a mechanism that may explain why the Epstein-Barr virus is associated with certain autoimmune illnesses such as lupus. A better understanding of how the virus infection contributes to autoimmune diseases in some people could lead to therapies that interrupt or reverse the process.

Introduction. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is classified in the family Herpesviridae, subfamily Gamaherpesvirinae, genus Lymphocryptovirus and species Human herpesvirus 4. (1,2) Sequencing-based studies revealed the existence of two types of EBV.() It is estimated that this ubiquitous virus has infected more than 90% of the world's population() According to the Center for Disease.

The discovery of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) by Epstein, Achong, and Barr, reported in (Lancet ), was stimulated by Denis Burkitt's rec- nition of a novel African childhood lymphoma and his postulation that an infectious agent was involved in the tumor's etiology (Nature, ).

Since then, molecular and cellular biological and computational technologies have. Epstein-Barr virus was first reported by British scientists M.A. Epstein, Y.M. Barr, and B.G. Achong, who found viruslike particles in cells grown from tissues involved with a newly described lymphatic Epstein-Barr virus is known to be able to infect only two different types of cells in the body: some salivary gland cells and one special type of white blood cell ().

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a human herpesvirus which infects almost all of the world's population subclinically during childhood and thereafter remains in the body for life.

The virus colonizes antibody-producing (B) cells, which, as relatively long-lived resting cells, are an ideal site for long-term by: Abstract.

The association of Burkitt’s lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is well known. In recent years other EBV associated tumors, such as diffuse polymorphic lymphomas have been seen in renal transplant patients by Hanto and others (1) and in various organ transplant patients by Starzl and others (2).Cited by: Abstracts.

The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a well-known example of a human virus which interacts most intimately with the immune system.

EBV is a polyclonal B lymphocyte activator, can immortalize B cells and, depending on situations, can also induce different T Cited by: 1. Epstein-Barr virus or EBV, as the first oncogenic human virus to be identified, has been at the vanguard of these studies and even 40 years after its discovery the virus continues to fascinate and surprise as it yields up its : Lawrence Young.

Abstract. EBV is unique among the human herpesviruses in its selective infection of B lymphocytes and epithelial cells. The tropism of EBV for B lymphocytes was shown by Jondal and Klein in (1), the same year that three laboratories independently described the existence of a B lymphocyte receptor for the C3d fragment of C3, the third complement component.
