Epstein-Barr Virus Antibodies Blood Test
Immunity (3 Biomarkers)
From the expert
EBV causes glandular fever in up to 50% of those who are infected. Symptoms of glandular fever include a very high temperature, a severe sore throat, swollen glands, extreme fatigue. There are several EBV antibodies that can be produced by the body in an immune response to several different EBV antigens. These include IgM and IgG antibodies to the viral capsid antigen (VCA) and antibodies to the nuclear antigen (EBNA). This blood test checks for all 3 of these antibodies, the results of which will help one of our doctors identify whether it is a current, recent, or past infection when commenting on your results.
