Detailed Description:

Epstein-Barr virus has been implicated in a range of malignant neoplasms, including in some studies, in the aetiology of oral squamous cell carcinoma but the influence of EBV in oral cancer remains unclear. This study will examine the prevalence of EBV infection in oral cancer by means of nested polymerase chain reaction.
