A pathogen of the herpes virus group, which can play a role in chronic diseases, is the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV). More than 90% of humans have experienced an EBV infection by the end of their puberty and will have produced antibodies that continue to exist for their entire lifetime. In a weakened immune system with the presence of particular bacteria (e,g, mycoplasma), reactivation of EBV with symptoms may occur.
