Human herpesvirus 8 (Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus) DNA in Kaposi's sarcoma lesions, AIDS Kaposi's sarcoma cell lines, endothelial Kaposi's sarcoma simulators, and the skin of immunosuppressed patients


American Journal of Pathology 148(6): 2009-2016
Human herpesvirus 8 (Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus) DNA in Kaposi's sarcoma lesions, AIDS Kaposi's sarcoma cell lines, endothelial Kaposi's sarcoma simulators, and the skin of immunosuppressed patients
We used the polymerase chain reaction on 63 tissue specimens of histologically staged classic Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) from 40 patients, 14 specimens from 14 acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-KS cases (all from the same geographic area over a 10-year period), and peripheral blood mononuclear cells from 1 of the non-AIDS KS patients to amplify a specific 210-bp genomic sequence of the newly discovered KS-associated herpesvirus (KSHV).
