The researchers then discovered that HHV6
and 7 were preferentially interacting with genes that have already been identified as increasing the risk for AD.
To date, this is the first study that analyzed the presence of all eight types of human herpesviruses (HSV-1, HSV-2, EBV, CMV, VZV, HHV6
, HHV7, and HHV8) in the saliva of subjects with peri-implantitis.
Virus DNA was detected in the CSF of 45/55 cases as follows: 62 % JCV, 44 % EBV, 25 % CMV, 36 % VZV, 18 % HSV-1 and 18 % HHV6
. A single virus was detectable in 20 cases, 19 cases were coinfected with two viruses, and 6 cases were positive for the three viruses.
KJ396198) and predicted amino acid sequence of the corresponding region of HSV-1 (HHV-1 ; AFI98948), HSV-2 (HHV-2; AGI44412), MaHV-1 (AAT67222); PaHV-2 (YP_443877), HHV-3 (varicella zoster virus; ABF21820), HHV-4 (Epstein-Barr virus; YP_401712), HHV-5 (human cytomegalovirus; AAP37469), HHV6
(BAF93477), HHV-8 (Kaposi sarcoma virus; ACY00400), and EHV-1 (ADI96155).
Diagnostic assays for active infection with human herpesvirus 6 (HHV6
(17) A recent study identified high intrahepatic HHV6
viral load, suggesting that HHV-6 reactivation in the liver graft is of clinical relevance.
Santos et al., "Human herpes virus type 6 (HHV6
) and human herpes virus type 7 (HHV7) may increase the susceptibility to Graves disease in individuals with inherited diminished TP53 apoptotic function," in Proceedings of the 33rd annual meeting of the European Thyroid Association, Thessalonique, 2008.
Statistical analysis was performed using Fisher test comparing the incidence of HHV6
in controls and MS patients.
Thus, we propose that chronic CMV and/or EBV and/or human herpes virus 6 (HHV6
) that infect TCD4 cells and TCD8 cells and that can respond to ganciclovir treatment (HHV-6 was not investigated in these patients), should be kept in mind during the differential diagnosis of idiopathic CD4 lymphocytopenia (ICL).
Association of HHV6
infection with drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms.
Some studies have shown that there is a high prevalence of DNA virus such as CMV, HHV6
and EBV in CD (Wakefield et al.
