First study of Oncolytic HSV-1 in children & young adults with cancer indicates safety, tolerability
Thu, 11 May 2017 11:00:00 +0800 | EurekAlert! - Cancer
(Nationwide Children's Hospital) HSV1716 -- an oncolytic herpes simplex virus-1 -- has been studied in adults via injection into the brain and superficial tumors. Now, a team of researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have completed the first phase 1 trial of the virus in the pediatric population, published online in Clinical Cancer Research.

Why is herpes simplex virus disease risk so much greater for newborns?
Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:00:00 +0800 | EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) Interferon is a crucial component of the human immune system's response to infection by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), but how important a role it plays in determining the severity of disease and explaining why newborns are so much more susceptible to HSV-1 infection than adults remains unclear.

Understanding of herpesvirus infection advanced by new research
Thu, 13 Apr 2017 00:23:54 +0800 | ScienceDaily Headlines
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections last a lifetime. Once a person has been infected, the virus can remain dormant (latent) for years before periodically reactivating to cause recurrent disease. This poorly understood cycle has frustrated scientists for years. Now, scientists have identified a set of protein complexes that are recruited to viral genes and stimulate both initial infection and reactivation from latency. Environmental stresses known to regulate these proteins also induce reactivation. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

What Causes Uveitis?
Mon, 03 Apr 2017 20:34:44 +0800 | PediatricEducation.org
Discussion Inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, or uvea, is termed uveitis. Uveitis can be divided into anterior, intermediate or posterior uveitis by involving the anterior (iris and ciliary body), intermediate (vitreous) or posterior (choroid and usually retina) compartments. Panuveitis involves all 3 compartments. Duration can also be used to classify uveitis. Acute is 6 weeks and > 3 months is chronic persistent uveitis. Episodic periods of inactivity and reactivity that last more than 3 months are called recurrent uveitis. A third way to characterize uveitis is if it is granulomatous or not. Uveitis increases with age with the highest incidence and prevalence in > 65 year olds. Only ~10% of uveitis occurs in the pediatric age group. Uveitis can be difficult to identify i...

Herpes STDs: From chimps to humans to cold sore cousin mixing before worldwide spread
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 11:00:00 +0800 | EurekAlert! - Infectious and Emerging Diseases
(Molecular Biology and Evolution (Oxford University Press)) Evolutionarily, Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 are considered cousins, and are thought to have evolved independently, Now, an entirely new picture is emerging. While scientists did not find evidence of chimpanzee herpes virus fragments in HSV-2 genomes, they show the history of HSV-2 was marked by recombination with HSV-1. In addition, they determined two main lineages of HSV-2, one globally distributed and another restricted to sub-Saharan Africa, which both started diversifying about 30,000 years ago.
