Epstein-Barr virus in nasopharyngeal and salivary gland carcinomas of Greenland Eskimoes.

Abstract

Biopsy specimens from nasopharyngeal carcinomas (NPC) or salivary-gland carcinomas (SGC) in Greenland Eskimoes were examined for the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA and sera from the patients were tested for EBV-specific antibody titres. Six out of 7 NPCs and one from an undifferentiated SGG were positive for EBV DNA. The EBV-specific antibody spectra and titres of the patients with NPC or undifferentiated SGG conformed to the results of earlier studies in other high-incidence areas.
