Brief Communication Antibody Response to Epstein-Barr Virus-Specific DNase in Thirteen Patients with Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is one of the major neoplastic malignancies of Southern Chinese males. In Taiwan, it has been reported as the most common cancer of males (Yeh, 1966). A recent long-term study established that the survival rate over a 10-year period could be as high as 77% if the treatments were initiated at stage I of the disease (Hsu et al, 1981) and therefore an early diagnosis method is required.
