    Igenex mentions the cross reaction of Rhematoid factors and EB virus on there site. Can these cause a False positive??

    I don't know, you might want to email them and ask.

    I DO know that a significant number of people have gotten better with the same abx that are used for lyme, however, which would of course indicate there is a bacterial basis for RA... so maybe it doesn't matter. So if you do have RA you may want to look at the Road Back foundation online, they have a lot of information and links for that.

    hope that helps a bit,
