Description: 95% of all Americans contract mononucleosis (mono) over the course of their lives, caused by the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). In about 5% of CLL cases, EBV causes Richter's Transformation, a progression of CLL into an aggressive lymphoma. Dr. Helen Heslop, from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, is researching how viruses like EBV, HPV, HCV and others may play a role in the fight against CLL, using the virus as a signal for immunotherapy drugs to identify and attack tumorous cells.
