Help with this EBV panel, I have no clue how to interpret this.

I went and got copies of my blood work yesterday and I'm kind of confused as to what they mean. I had an EBV panel done and it says abnormal on some, but not on others. Here are the results.
EBV VGA IgG antibodies:
1:160 titer.............(Abn.)................ ....<1:10 titer

EBV VCA IgM Antibodies:
<1:10 titer..............(norm.).............. ....<1:10 titer

*this is the one I really don't understand*
EBV Nuclear Antigen IgG Antibodies:
>=1:80 titer..............(Abn.)............... ....<1:5 titer
<0.91 ISR.................(Norm.)............. .....<0.91 ISR

Re: Help with this EBV panel, I have no clue how to interpret this.

Have you been sick recently? From what I read it has to do with possible Mono..Strep and a few other viruses. Usually it is a common virus which shows you may or may not have been exposed to it or even had it in the past. Do a search on it. Hopefully someone else can give you more info., as that is all I could find.

Good luck...JJ....
