On the basis of both molecular and biological analyses, HHV-6, which is very similar to CMV, is the prototypic member of the Betaherpesvirinae [21, 22].
The subfamily Betaherpesvirinae consists of the genera Cytomegalovirus, Muromegalovirus, and Roseolovirus.
Herpesviruses are large (160 to 180 nm), enveloped DNA viruses that can be divided into three subfamilies (Alphaherpesvirinae, Betaherpesvirinae, and Gammaherpesvirinae).
These included the following: 1) vaccination against hepatitis A (genus Hepatovirus) and measles (genus Morbillivirus); 2) serologic testing for cytomegalovirus (subfamily Betaherpesvirinae; positive), herpesvirus B (family Herpesviridae, negative), simian type D virus (simian retrovirus; SRV-1, -2, and-3; negative), simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV, genus Lentivirus; negative), simian T-lymphotropic virus (STLV, genus BLV-HTLV retroviruses; negative); 3) testing by polymerase chain reaction for SRV-1, -2, and -3 (negative); 4) Mantoux skin test for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (negative x4); and 5) treatment for endoparasites with albendazole and avermectin, for ectoparasites with insecticide dust, and for Plasmodium spp.
El virus presente fue caracterizado por sus dimensiones y demas caracteristicas morfologicas, como perteneciente a la familia de los Herperviridae, subfamilia Betaherpesvirinae o grupo de los Citomegalovirus.
