  1. Herbal medicine use, Epstein-Barr virus, and risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

    Article - En anglais

    Herbal medicine use is thought to be linked to nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) either through its ability to reactivate the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) or through a direct promoting effect on EBV-transformed cells.

    To investigate this, 104 histologically confirmed NPC cases and 205 matched controls were studied in The Philippines.

    Blood was collected to assess antibody titers against EBV, and an interview was administered which elicited information concerning herbal medicine use and other risk factors for NPC.
