Epstein-Barr virus

A four-year, $5.5 million program will assess whether circulating cell-free DNA testing can improve diagnosis and outcomes for a type of EBV-associated cancer.

Researchers are making improvements to viral-DNA detection methods and are exploring applications not just for screening but also disease monitoring.

In PNAS this week: genomic analysis of the venomous Hispaniolan solenodon, Epstein-Barr virus amplification in replication compartments, and more.

In PNAS this week: intronic STAT3 splice site linked to autosomal dominant primary immunodeficiency condition, human B lymphocyte changes following Epstein-Barr virus exposure, and more.

NeuMoDx's tests are designed for central laboratory use and run on the company's fully automated NeuMoDx 96 or 288 real-time PCR systems.

In Nature this week: study of value diversity in GWAS, Epstein-Barr virus subtypes linked to nasopharyngeal carcinoma risk, and more.

By comparing viruses in parts of China with or without endemic EBV-associated nasal cancers, researchers narrowed in on two viral variants associated with increased cancer risk.

The company plans to take a tiered approach to assay development, targeting its first test to 10 viruses commonly detected in transplant patients.

The newly launched RT-PCR-based molecular diagnostic kits are designed for use in monitoring post-transplantation and immunosuppressed patients.

The NGS-based test improves on a previous PCR-based version and detects circulating DNA from Epstein Barr virus that is shed from cancer cells.
