Mode of infection and some diseases caused by Epstein Barr virus: The most ubiquitous, common malignant and characteristic virus

PDF Full Text


Epstein Barr virus (EBV) was detected for the first time by electron microscopy (EM) in a malignant Burkitt’s lymphoma. EBV has a worldwide distribution and its prevalence is more than 90%. It is a malignant virus, symptoms vary from mild or find no symptoms in some individuals and serious symptoms or cancers in others. EBV is a characteristic one since it has a lot of properties to become latent and modulate the host immune system in a serious manner in some conditions where it has many proteins having sequence and functional homology with many human proteins. EBV could be transmitted through saliva or contact with the air borne, blood transfusion, organ transplantation semen or cervical secretions. EBV Causes a lot of diseases which varies according to some factors. Rediagnosis For COVID-19 is recommended by considering it EBV or ovine herpes virus 2 (OvHV-2) where I think that they are the same virus With two names according to human or veterinary medicine because accurate diagnosis is the first and most important step for controlling COVID-19 and I show that the obtained RNA and considered as corona Virus is mainly one of the messenger RNA (s) of EBV (0vHV-2) to be translated for proteins demanded by this herpesvirus. This false diagnosis may be performed with other RNA viruses named previously. Proper diagnosis will be achieved by electron microscopy for detection of herpes viral particles and sequencing of glycoprotein B complete gene. Another recommendation is taking in consideration that stool is among routes of infection as well as milk and colostrum with special care during management for all animals or birds ( because all species are susceptible ) which also give good chance for experimental application of vaccines, antibodies as well as studying pathogenesis and pathology of the virus.
