WICHITA, Kan., June 4, 2014 The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a member of the herpes family that targets lymphocytes and epithelial cells. While the infection is usually benign, it can in some cases lead to acute infectious mononucleosis and can impair the immune system. EBV is also linked to several malignancies. There is currently no cure for removing EBV infections and very little success treating acute EBV infection and mononucleosis with drugs. Riordan Clinic Director of Research Dr. Nina...

Antibody prevalence (for EBV), adjusted for age and sex in non-Hispanic blacks is 74%, much higher than other segments of the population, according to an article published on May 11, 2014 in Clinical Infectious Diseases(1). polyDNA recommends Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin against the Epstein Barr Virus, a virus that studies show infects African Americans at high rates. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) May 26, 2014 polyDNA has learned that African Americans are infected with the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV)...

There is “an increased frequency of latent EBV-infected B cells in MS,” according to a study published in Acta Neurologica Scandinavica on March 31, 2014 (1). polyDNA reviews the study and recommends that patients with MS talk to their doctors about Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) May 19, 2014 Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection is associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). One recent study found that “Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) have elevated antibodies...

Development of a vaccine against Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has taken a step forward with the Canadian discovery of how EBV infection evades detection by the immune system. EBV causes infectious mononucleosis and cancers such as Hodgkin’s lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma, which is the most common cancer in China, as well as opportunistic cancers in people with weakened immune systems. A member of the herpes virus family that remains in the body for life, the virus infects epithelial...

Large families and smoking have an independent impact on EBV infection that is not accounted for by other sociodemographic factors, according to a new study published in PLoS One in May, 2013. (1) polyDNA recommends Gene-Eden-VIR to help prevent the kissing disease in these populations. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) July 21, 2013 A new study has shown that people living in large households or in families with smokers are at a significantly higher risk of Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) infection. EBV is...

NEW YORK -- Though mononucleosis is known as the "kissing disease," sexual intercourse may increase the odds of contracting the virus, a UK study suggests. The findings, say researchers, could have implications for the vaccines now being tested against Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), the cause of mono. Their study found that of 510 college students who were initially free of EBV, nearly half became infected with the virus over the next three years, with sexually active students being at greater...

Cytomegalovirus, a herpes viral genus, is known in humans as HCMV. It is part of the Betaherpesvirinae subfamily. Other herpesviruses fall into the subfamilies of Alphaherpesvirinae or Gammaherpesvirinae. xHCMV infections are frequently associated with salivary glands. It can be lethal for people who are immunocompromised. Other CMV viruses are found in several mammal species, but species isolated from animals differ from HCMV in terms of genomic structure. HCMV is found all over the...
