How is EBV treated?

Treatment of EBV depends on the results of the tests.

  • No treatment is needed if neither EBV nor EBV antibodies are present in the blood
  • If there are antibodies but no EBV, a patient is usually monitored over time
  • If there is evidence of EBV in the patient’s blood, sometimes transplant doctors  may lower the dose of immunosuppression to allow the body to clear the virus on its own
  • Drugs to treat EBV are available, but often they are poorly effective or have side effects
