El virus de Epstein-Barr, miembro de la familia de los herpesvirus, suele subestimarse a pesar de que infecta aproximadamente al 90% de la población. En algunas personas, el organismo es resistente al virus sin causar efectos significativos, mientras que otras experimentan complicaciones. Rebecca Dekker recomienda el uso del medicamento preventivo Valtrex 1000 mg para reducir el riesgo.
