What is Glandular fever?

(1) Those who become infected with EBV usually get adaptive immunity. Most people get EBV during their teen or young adult years, as it is most commonly transmitted by kissing. The Epstein-Barr (EB) virus is only transmitted through the exchange of body fluids like saliva, blood or semen. Other common methods of infection include sharing drinking glasses, eating utensils, toothbrushes or other close contact.
