Reactivation Of Ebv
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
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
Had EBV reactivation in Nov, now IGM is - but IGG early antigen is high 42.4 (0-8.9). read this means EBV still active. What are possibilities?
Doubt reactivation: While it is very common to shed EBV during stress and illness as in Herpes simplex, EBV almost never " reactivates" except in patients with profound immunosuppressive, like a bone marrow transplant patient. Hi antibody tigers do not correlate with active disease. Even positive EBV cultures almost always reflect shedding and not invasive disease. Most patients are asymptomatically infected asbabies ...Read more
Why would I have accute mono/ebv currently when i've had it before in the past? Why would it re-activate?
May recur: Generally, people will only contract mononucleosis once. Once infected, the patient carries the dormant virus in b lymphocytes for the rest of life. Immune system normally keeps the virus under control. However, under certain circumstances when the immune system is under stress, the virus may become reactive and cause vague symptoms of general illness and person becomes contagious. ...Read more
Doc's keep telling me its muscle but i know my liver.Sgot was low :-) EBV ie: viral reactivation caused by low immunity, is exercise ok, after 7weeks?
Few contraindication: I'll admit i'm not clever enough to understand exactly what ur saying, but i'm guessing you have a poorly-defined systemic flu-like illness that seems to have come back. There are very few contraindications to good aerobic physical exercise, especially if the heart seems okay (& i trust yours is). Glad u want to run / have a runner photo. I actually still ran through my own bout of ebv. Enjoy. ...Read more
I was just diagnosed with chronic active ebv. I've had severe symptoms for over 2years. Should I be concerned?
Yes/NIH study: Chronic active EBV infection is a rare and serious condition. Recent treatments include immunomodulators such as interferon gamma, and pre-clinical studies of bortezomib, and valproic acid are promising. Reduced intensity hematopoetic stem cell transplantation with nondestructive pretreatment is curative. http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00032513 Please consider signing up for this study. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can I be causing EBV flare up around the same time each year when i increase my daily workout as summer approaches?
Epstein Barr virus +: A person has been exposed to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). This is the cause of infectious mononucleosis (Mono) and is associated with certain cancers. A POSITIVE blood test (antibody test) only means exposure to the virus but not necessarily active disease. Seroepidemiologic survey indicates that over 95% of adults worldwide are infected with EBV. Transplant registry for instance will prove this ...Read more
