Epstein-barr tst rslts - what do they mean? Ref rng <0.91, VCA ab in rng, VCA ab IgG 4.46 out +, nucl ag (ebna)(igg) >5.00 +, cyto ab (igg) 3.91 +
Possible exposure: Igg positive antibodies which you have, indicate a past infection and not recent i.e. Active. Positive i gm antibodies usually indicate current infection. This means you may be have been exposed to mono in the past, the debate still goes on whether there's any correlation between this and chronic fatigue syndrome as many patients who have positive igg or igm do not have chronic fatigue symptoms. ...Read more
Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?
Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
EBV early antigen Ab, IgG <9; EBV Eb, VcA, IgG >600; EBV nuclear antigen Ab IgG 108. Diagnossed with CAEBV infection. Does this sound right to you?
Maybe.: The profile is of a past infection. I am not sure if it can be diagnosed just by symptoms and evidence of past infection. I think you would need the second criteria of diagnosis which is DNA of EBV in peripheral tissue or blood detectable through PCR test with a low anti-EA. Have other diagnoses like Lyme's been tested for? ID specialist. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3245398/ ...Read more
Help with blood results: EBV VCA IgG >8.0, EBV IgM neg. CMV antibody IgG 38, EBV NA antibody >8.0. Can it explain my body aches? Why or why not?
Old infection: with EBV is the pattern of IgG positive (including NA) and IgM negative. I assume the CMV which is a different infection is also the IgG? If so, both are old infections and do not usually explain your current symptoms. This is a pattern that shows immunity to these infections. Look for other causes. ...Read more

See details: It means you had EB viral infection in the past but do not have active disease. ...Read more
Had HSV DNA PCR test with CSF? Negative. Also had HSV 1/2 antibody (IgM), IFA with reflex to Titer, CSF. Negative. Can I still have HSV 1 or 2?
No HSV in CNS: With these tests, you're obviously under a doctor's care, maybe including an infectious diseases specialist or neurologist. They can answer these questions best. But these results effectively rule out HSV infection of your central nervous system. Something else is causing the problem. That said, the HSV IgM test is notoriously unreliable. You probably also had an IgG test, probably negative. ...Read more

Results : You need to discuss these results with the physician that ordered the test as he needs to consider them in conjunction with your clinical presentation ...Read more
Reactivated EBV 9 months after first infection. Could i be immunodeficient? Antibody count: 65 ab VCA igm; 53 ea ab igg; 431 ab VCA igg; 289 ebna igg.
No: Unfortunately ebv stays alive forever in one's lymphocytes and can get activated easily in susceptible people without known immunodeficiency. However you may call that an immunodeficiency given that all people have been infected with it yet only few would have recurrent ebv problem. ...Read more
Alkaline Phosphatase 129 / C-Reactive Protein 13.2 / Ebv Nuclear Antigen Ab & Ebv Ab Vca, Igg >600 / Dr. says no worries but should I be concerned?
Depends: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your C-reactive protein is elevated suggesting inflammation. you may wish to repeat the test in 6 months or so. Your doctor knows more about your health and you should follow his/her advice. ...Read more

Confused by results bc had mono 15 yr ago..
Epstein barr VCA ab (igm) < or = 0.90 epstein virus VCA ab (igg) 3.51
epstein virus (ebna) ab (igg) >5.
Makes perfect sense: Igm antibodies rise only during the actual, acute infection. They then fade away and are replaced by the various igg antibodies, which are the ones that provide lifetime protection against the same strain of the virus. So your numbers are consistent with the fact you had mono years ago. There is no igm, and positive igg levels. So you are immune and do not currently have mono. ...Read more
I have positive ANA sm, ssa (ro), ssb (la) , ro52, jo-1, sci-70, ribosomal p antibodies what are the levels for each antibody that signify lupus ?
Level not important: If these antibodies are truly positive the degree of positivity is not that important. ...Read more
Hi, ive got elevated alpha 2 macro glob, apolipo protein, alt and not immune to hep b reactive to a, chronic hcv and weight loss, muscle loss.. Wrong?
On ceruplasmin test hep A AB Total reactive ref range U mean? Also Hep A AB (IGM) nonreactive ref range U mean? What am I testing positive for?
Lab tests: You do not give a value for the ceruloplasm. If you have antibodies to Hepatitis A virus and the IgG is positive and the IgM negative it suggests that you were immunized for hepatitis A or had infection in the past. Why not discuss these values with the doctor who ordered them? ...Read more
