Apes are tailless nonhuman primates that diverged from the cercopithecine
monkeys about 25,000,000 years ago.
B virus, also known as Cercopithecine
herpesvirus 1 (CHV-1), Herpesvirus simiae, Herpes simiae, or Simian B disease, is considered endemic among monkeys of the genus Macaca.

An additional finding was the taxonomic affinity of EHV-9 and other equine alphaherpesviruses to herpes simplex virus 1 and cercopithecine
SFV was conjugated to beads as previously described for simian retrovirus, simian T-cell leukemia virus, simian immunodeficiency virus, and Cercopithecine
herpesvirus 1 (22).

herpesvirus 1 (herpes B virus) is an alpha herpesvirus endemic to Asian macaques, which mostly carry this virus without overt signs of disease.
