Abstract

Seroepidemiological and molecular biological studies have established an association of Hodgkin's disease with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Recently, EBV genomes and gene products, most notably the latent membrane protein (LMP), have been detected in approximately 50% of the cases. The findings suggest that EBV may contribute to the pathoetiology of a sizable proportion of Hodgkin's disease cases.
