Evidence of Epstein-Barr-like virus found in dogs with lymphoma

Research from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine found evidence of a virus similar to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in some dogs with lymphoma. EBV was previously thought to infect only humans, but scientists hypothesize that the approximately 15,000 years of cohabitation between dogs and people prompted the virus to adapt and infect some dogs. The research, done with Penn's Perelman School of Medicine, provides new avenues for studying the connection between EBV and lymphoma in humans.
