Epstein-Barr Virus Infection (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Almost all people who are infected with EBV recover completely in about one to three months. Neurological changes usually completely resolve, although a few adults may have some deficits. Although most infections become latent, most remain asymptomatic. There are ongoing efforts to develop a vaccine against EBV, but these have not been successful to date. New medications are being developed to treat mononucleosis and EBV.
