Active Epstein Barr

May 26, 2003

How reliable is the pcr test for active epstein barr? Is there a good treatment for the symptoms?

Response from Dr. Young

The PCR test is very reliable, though I'd venture that it might be too sensitive in some cases-- that is to say, it can detect virus in some persons who don't have active illness.

There aren't good antiviral therapies for EBV. BY

Desperate, I don't know what to do.
