Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)
Company : Innominata dba GenBio
UMDC Code : 405964
Interpretations of EBV serologies, unlike standard viral serologies on paired sera, are based on the differential profiles of antibodies in a single serum against multiple antigens. EBV causes infectious mononucleosis (IM) or mononucleosis-like syndrome (MLS) Viral capsid antigen complex (VCA), IgG and IgM responses are rapid and occur almost simultaneously. VCA-IgM antibodies are reliably detectable only during primary infections. Due to the variable incubation period and intensity of symptoms, by the time patients consult their physicians, nearly all have reached peak titers of IgG. In general, both IgG and IgM become detectable within 2.3 weeks of onset and peak at 4.6 weeks. VCA-IgM disappears rapidly thereafter, while IgG wanes slightly and then varies little for life.
