Mannose-binding lectin genotypes and susceptibility to epstein-barr virus infection in infancy
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
In a cohort study of children <4 years of age in Greenland, mannose-binding lectin (MBL2) genotypes and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) antibody levels were determined. EBV seropositivity was significantly lower and time to seroconversion increased in MBL-insufficient compared with MBL-sufficient children, indicating that MBL may be involved in primary EBV infection in infancy.
