To comment on your most recent test:

3/05/12
EBV Ab VCA, IgM: 1.8 ---IgM indicates active or recently active infection.
EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG: >8.0 ---This indicates without a doubt infection is currenntly active. This is positive in the early stage of EBV reactivation.

These are the two you want to see go negative. The other two will be positive forever. Hope this helps!
