Address Your Epstein Barr Virus

If you are dealing with arthritis, it’s time to get real about getting an Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) Test. EBV is a highly contractable and common virus that most popularly presents itself as mononucleosis, although having mono isn't required to contract EBV and there are several strains. Research has shown that patients with established RA seem to have elevated levels of anti-EBV antibodies and viral loads. This is significant despite what your practitioner may tell you about no longer having the virus.

Currently, there is only one test for detecting EBV. This test allows your doctor to tell if you had EBV. Because EBV is so common, many practitioners may take a positive EBV result lightly. However, EBV is a virus that stays with you, once you get it, and it houses up in your body for life, laying in wait to strike slowly and chronically. Chances are if you’re suffering from arthritis later in life, EBV is behind the assault, according to the latest research published in the scientific journal Joint Bone Spine.

“EBV, a widespread virus, highly recognized by antibodies but never eliminated, is an ideal candidate to trigger chronic immune complex disease. Anti-EBV antibody responses should be considered as one of the chronic autoantibody responses linked to the development of RA, in the same way as anti-citrullinated protein antibodies.”
