Viral Strain: Induced P3HR-1 Cells packaged in Glycine pH 9 - 9.5,   approx 1.5-3.0 mgs/ml (40-60% Viral Protein) Store -70 DEG C.

Epstein-Barr Virus antigen is prepared by extraction of P3HR-1 cells that have been induced to produce viral proteins by TPA and sodium butyrate. The preparation contains all major EBV antigens and has been partially purified to reduce host cell components. These antigens are inactivated and yield high sensitivity and low background in the ELISA and other solid phase immunoassays.

Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) is one of the most common and widely disseminated human viruses, and is the etiological agent of infectious mononucleosis (IM). IM, also called kissing disease because of its prevalence in young adults, may vary from mild to severe - but it is rarely fatal.  Mononucleosis must be distinguished from a variety of other infectious diseases that cause fever and inflammation of the upper respiratory tract.  A syndrome similar to EBV-induced mononucleosis may be the result of a cytomegalovirus or toxoplasma infection.

Serologic tests are an important aid in diagnosis of EBV infection. The presence of IgG antibody to capsid antigen and to the Epstein-Barr nuclear antigen (EBNA) indicates past infection. Current infection is usually detected by presence of IgM antibody to capsid antigen.
