Positive Epstein Barr Virus Test
No: They are separate viruses that stimulate the production of different antibodies that do not cross react. ...Read more
The epstein–barr virus (ebv) is a virus in the herpesvirus family and is one of the most common viruses in humans. Ebv is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis, and infection with ebv occurs by the oral transfer of saliva and/or genital secretions, hence the moniker "the kissing disease". In the us, about 90 to 95 percent of all adults have ...Read more
Why would my epstein barr virus continue to be high. Dont test positive for mono, it has been pn high side for over a year? Is this worrisome
EBV: If you mean your antibody titers are high this is not uncommon and may stay that way for lifetime. It also depends upon which component of the EBV the antibodies are forming to, and also whether these are IgG or IgM antibodies. These tests are not easy to interpret and in the absent of symptoms would not worry about them. ...Read more
Had EBV test came back EBV nuc IgG ser qi eia positive and EBV vac IgG eia postive. Ebv capsid IgM eia negative. I'm so tired what do this mean?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ebv panel. Ebv nuc antigen igg=157, early ag igg=12.7, EBV VCA igg=112, EBV VCA igm=10.6. Please explain. Concerned about spleen. Symp=fatigue/fog?
? Active infection: It's impossible for me to answer with certainty since i don't know the normal ranges your lab uses. If early ag & vca igm are elevated above normal this indicates active ebv infection.I don't know if it is acute or chronic without knowing your history. If chronic i see that as a sign of poor immune function.Immune-boosting herbs/supplements & IV vit c drips may help, but find why immunity is poor. ...Read more
What does a high EBV viral nuclear capsid antibody, a high EBV viral capsid antibody IgG and a high IgM EBV viral capsid antibody mean, what's it mean?
Likely immunity,,: You've got antibodies to the ebv which likely means you were infected at some time in your life and you recovered and now your body has circulating antibodies to it. An igg antibody in particular indicates long term resistance. This virus usually causes asymptomatic infection so you probably fought it off and weren't aware of it. Best of luck. ...Read more
One and a half year epstein barr virus, did many lab test for antibodies. Only IgG present but no igm. Test with VCA gp125, p19 ebna-1 p22 all postive?
Only indicates you..: Indicates you've had mono. The mono virus is permanently inserted into your b-lymphocytes and hepatocytes (liver tissue) forever! legacy of the "kissing disease! however, you did not specify your titer of "early antigen, " which can indicate chronic mono. See if this test was done! but form the data you present, nothing is abnormal and indicates you have had mono in the past! ...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
Past EBV infection: The presence of igg to the ebv capsule means that your body was exposed at some time in the past to ebv and made antibodies against it. It is at its highest level 2-3 months after the initial infection, and it will always be present. An elevated igm level would be consistent with current/recent infection. ...Read more
VZV IgG titer= 1926, VZV IgM titer >3.91 with reactivated shingles present. What does test mean? Active VZV infection? Is 1926 dangerously high.
