What does the test include?
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) antibodies are a group of tests that are ordered to help diagnose a current, recent, or past EBV infection. EBV is a member of the herpes virus family. Passed through the saliva, the virus causes an infection that is very common. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as 95% of people in the United States will have been infected by EBV by the time they are 40 years old. After exposure to the virus, there is an incubation period of several weeks. EBV then causes an acute primary infection, followed by resolution and dormancy. Latent EBV remains in the person's body for the rest of his life, reactivating intermittently, but causing few problems unless the person's immune system is significantly compromised.
This test provides a positive or negative result for the presence of EBV in the blood. Intended to detect the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA in a sample of blood to aid in the diagnosis of EBV infections.
