From: EBV latent membrane protein 1 abundance correlates with patient age but not with metastatic behavior in north African nasopharyngeal carcinomas

  Age category (patient number)
EBV-antibody titles < 30 years (n = 21) ≥ 30 years (n = 47) pa
IgG VCA < 320 7 (33,3%) 4 (8,5%) 0,03
IgG EA < 40 12 (57,1%) 6 (12,8%) 2.7 × 10 -4
IgA VCA < 10 15 (75%) 7 (14,9%) < 10 -5
