EBER-in situ hybridization demonstrated the presence of EBV in germinal centre B-cells of a reactive lymph node. The entire germinal centre is packed with proliferating EBV-infected cells. In the absence of antigenic stimulation, these cells would normally be destined to undergo apoptosis. However, their survival and proliferation in this case would imply that EBV may be providing a rescue signal (Khan Exp Hematol 2006; 34: 695-696.)

Microbiology (from Greek ????, mikros, "small"; ???, bios, "life"; and -????a, -logia) is the study of microorganisms, which are microscopic, unicellular, and cell-cluster organisms.This includes eukaryotes such as fungi and protists, and prokaryotes. Viruses and prions, though not strictly classed as living organisms, are also studied. Microbiology typically includes the study of the immune system, or Immunology. Generally, immune systems interact with pathogenic microbes; these two disciplines often intersect which is why many colleges offer a paired degree such as "Microbiology and Immunology".
