Abstract: A new immunoblot assay, composed of four Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)- encoded recombinant proteins (virus capsid antigen [VCA] p23, early antigen [EA] p138, EA p54, and EBNA-1 p72), was compared with an immunofluorescence assay on a total of 291 sera. The test was accurate in 94.5% of cases of primary EBV infection, while an immunoglobulin G anti-VCA p23 band with strong intensity correlated with reactivation.
