Description

DescriptionThe EBV-VCA IgA ELISA test system is an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of IgA class antibodies to EBV-VCA in human serum or plasma. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a herpes virus known to cause infectious mononucleosis (IM). EBV infection may demonstrate a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms. The majorities of primary EBV infections are transmitted via saliva, occur during childhood, and are sub-clinical. In the U.S., 50% of the population demonstrate EBV antibodies before the age of 5 years; 80% by adulthood. Transfusion-associated EBV infections have also been reported. Epstein-Barr virus has also been associated in the pathogenisis of two human cancers, Burkitt's lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Burkitt's lymphoma is primarily observed in Sub-Sahara Africa, especially in African children, and in New Guinea. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is observed in Asia, most notably in Southern China.
