Contents Genital herpes
The signs of herpes appear about 2-10 days after sexual contact with an infected person.
Herpes sores heal after 3-4 days but often recur. Treatment relieves pain and discomfort but cannot prevent recurrence. A woman with herpes may infect her newborn at childbirth causing blindness or mental retardation.
- itching/burning-feeling in the genital area
- water blisters (vesicles) or open sores
- discharge of fluid from the vagina.
Herpes simplex is caused by the Herpes simplex virus (HSV) 1 & 2 (HSV-1 & HSV-2), diagnosed with the herpes type-specific blood test

Delineation of vagal emetic pathways: intragastric copper sulfate-induced emesis and viral tract tracing in musk shrews
Sat, 01 Mar 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | AJP: Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology
Signals from the vestibular system, area postrema, and forebrain elicit nausea and vomiting, but gastrointestinal (GI) vagal afferent input arguably plays the most prominent role in defense against food poisoning. It is difficult to determine the contribution of GI vagal afferent input on emesis because various agents (e.g., chemotherapy) often act on multiple sensory pathways. Intragastric copper sulfate (CuSO4) potentially provides a specific vagal emetic stimulus, but its actions are not well defined in musk shrews (Suncus murinus), a primary small animal model used to study emesis. The aims of the current study were 1) to investigate the effects of subdiaphragmatic vagotomy on CuSO4-induced emesis and 2) to conduct preliminary transneuronal tracing of the GI-brain pathways in musk shre...
Mechanical Allodynia Induced by Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor Is Suppressed by p55TNFSR Mediated by Herpes Simplex Virus Vector Through the SDF1 alpha/CXCR4 System in Rats.
Wed, 26 Feb 2014 22:00:40 +0100 | Anesthesia and Analgesia
CONCLUSIONS: Our studies demonstrate that TNF-α through the SDF1/CXCR4 system is involved in the NRTIs-related neuropathic pain state and that blocking the signaling of these proinflammatory molecules is able to reduce NRTIs-related neuropathic pain. These results provide a novel mechanism-based approach (gene therapy) to treating HIV-associated neuropathic pain.
Shingles: A common and painful virus
Wed, 26 Feb 2014 18:27:52 +0100 | ScienceDaily Headlines
Shingles is a painful viral infection that affects almost one million people worldwide and 30 percent of Americans every year. Known as herpes zoster, it’s caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox, the varicella-zoster virus. The outbreak occurs mostly in people older than 50 because the virus can lay dormant in the nerve tissue of the body for many years then become activated and cause shingles later in life. A new article gives advice and guidance for those at risk. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)
Chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale, genital herpes simplex infection, and molluscum contagiosum
Fri, 21 Feb 2014 20:59:45 +0100 | Clinics in Dermatology
Abstract: Chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum, and granuloma inguinale may be considered as tropical venereal diseases. These diseases were a major diagnostic and therapeutic challenge in past centuries. Currently, patients with these bacterial infections that are endemic to the tropics occasionally consult with dermatologists in temperate climates. Due to the increasing frequency of travel to the tropics for tourism and work, as well as the increasing number of immigrants from these areas, it is important for dermatologists practicing in temperate climates to be familiar with the dermatologic manifestations of such infections, to be prepared to diagnose these diseases, and to treat these patients. All three “tropical” infections respond well to prompt and appropriate antimicrobial tre...
One‐year follow‐up of zoster‐associated pain in 764 immunocompetent patients with acute herpes zoster treated with famciclovir (FAMILIAR study)
Fri, 21 Feb 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology
Conclusion & InferenceThis study, with an exceptionally high follow‐up rate, revealed several new findings, including the influence of disease severity on the delay between the onset of symptoms and seeking medical attention. Six adverse drug reactions were reported in five of 721 patients in the safety analysis, including two severe cases of vomiting and convulsions.

Reactivation of herpes simplex virus infection in a patient undergoing ruxolitinib treatment
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 16:08:06 +0100 | Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
To the Editor: Ruxolitinib (Jakafi), a selective JAK-1 and -2 inhibitor, is the first agent approved by the Food and Drug Administration for myelofibrosis. Previously noted side effects include anemia, thrombocytopenia, and neutropenia. It is also known that ruxolitinib can predispose to serious infections with varicella zoster virus (VZV).

Research Gaps in Defining the Biological Link between HIV Risk and Hormonal Contraception
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 15:05:26 +0100 | American Journal of Reproductive Immunology
Epidemiologic data suggest an association between depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA), a progesterone‐based hormonal contraceptive, and increased risk of HIV acquisition and transmission. DMPA is highly effective and is among the most commonly used form of hormonal contraception in areas of high HIV prevalence. Thus, defining the biological mechanisms that contribute to the potential negative synergy between DMPA and HIV is key and may facilitate the identification of alternative contraceptive strategies. Proposed mechanisms include thinning or disruption of the cervicovaginal epithelial barrier, induction of mucosal inflammation, interference with innate and adaptive soluble and cellular immune responses, and/or alterations in the vaginal microbiome. DMPA may also indirectly increa...
