When the immune system cannot keep diseases in check, some of these herpes viruses
can cause cancers.

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE HERPES VIRUSES
POST-TEST Choose the one best answer.
The risk of cerebral palsy was almost doubled with exposure to herpes viruses
VZV is characteristic of the alpha herpes viruses
and establishes latency in the cells of the dorsal root ganglia after primary infection (Arvin 1996).
These results suggest that a drug based on the compound could seek and destroy herpes viruses
hiding in people's bodies.
That's according to new research from the Herpes Viruses
Association (HVA), which has carried out studies around the country.
It inhibits the growth of herpes viruses
(both herpes simplex 1, which results in cold sores, and herpes simplex 2, which causes genital herpes).
The Moseley-based company, which has developed a platform of treatment for herpes viruses
from common roadside weeds, has asked Ofex market marker JP Jenkins to suspend its shares until the fundraising completes and it moves to AIM.
Gram stain was negative, as were bacterial culture, cryptococcal antigen, and results of a polymerase chain reaction test for herpes viruses
. IgM antibodies against West Nile virus were positive in both serum and CSF.
HHV-6 should not be confused with genital herpes or other herpes viruses
Tests on Zovirax have shown it can reduce the life of a cold sore but the Herpes Viruses
Association says ice cubes and cold tea bags also hit the spot.
