ATO decreased cell viability and growth in EBV-positive cells but not in EBV-negative cells. a EBV-positive cells (Mutu+, Akata+) and EBV-negative cells (Mutu-, Akata-) were treated with ATO alone at the indicated concentrations (0.1 nM – 5 nM) or with 45 μM of ganciclovir (GCV) for 3 days and cell viability was determined using trypan blue (AG indicates the combination of 0.5 nM of ATO and 45 μM of GCV). * p < 0.05 vs no treatment (NT). b Mutu and Akata cells were treated with 1 nM of ATO and a MTT assay was performed daily for 3 days (+ represents EBV-positive cells, − indicates EBV-negative cells, NT denote no treatment). * p < 0.05 vs NT
