Immunobiology and Prophylaxis of Human Herpesvirus Infections. Editors (view affiliations) Carlos Lopez; Ryoichi Mori; Bernard Roizman; There is no loftier aim than to cure or prevent human infections with these viruses.

The objective of much of the current research on herpesviruses is directed toward an understanding of the molecular. This volume summarizes the current knowledge of the pathogenesis and immunobiology of herpesvirus infections in man and describes new and developing approaches to prophylaxis and treatment.

It contains con­ tributions from distinguished research scientists presently engaged at the forefront of these scientific investigations. Book Title Immunobiology and Prophylaxis of Human Herpesvirus Infections Editors.

At least eight types of human herpesviruses have been identified till today (Raab-Traub, ; Mesri et al., ).They are HSV-1, HSV-2, varicella zoster virus (VZV), Epstein–Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, roseolo viruses HHV-6 (A and B) and HHV-7, and Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (HHV-8).

Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a ubiquitous Herpesviridae virus with a wide spectrum of pathology in humans. Host immunity is a major determinant of the clinical manifestation of CMV and can vary widely in the gastroenterology and hepatology practice setting.

Immunocompetent patients generally develop a benign, self-limited mononucleosis-like syndrome whereas gastrointestinal tissue-invasive. Bernard Roizman has 15 books on Goodreads with 47 ratings.

Drugs Used to Treat Herpesvirus Infections Eight types of herpesviruses infect humans (see (EBV) and human herpesvirus type 8 (HHV-8), also known as Kaposi sarcoma–associated herpesvirus (KSHV), can cause certain cancers.

Roseola infantum is a childhood disease caused by herpesvirus 6 (and sometimes 7). InFrenkel et al. 1 isolated a novel human herpes virus, human herpesvirus 7, from CD4 + lymphocytes of a healthy adult.

Seroepidemiologic studies have indicated that the primary infection of HHV-7 occurs during childhood, as for human herpesvirus 6, the causative agent of exanthem subitum, 2 but the age of infection with HHV-7 appears to be somewhat later than that with.

Lung transplant recipients are at high risk for cytomegalovirus (CMV) and other herpesvirus (HV) infections. Among herpesviruses, some beta-herpesviruses, including human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) and HHV-7, and gamma-herpesvirus, including Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), have been frequently isolated in the pulmonary alveolar microenvironment following lung transplantation.

The work of the American Society of Transplantation Infectious Diseases Community of Practice, this reference exclusively uses tables and flowcharts to speed up decision making.

Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) was the sixth herpesvirus discovered. Isolated in during attempts to find novel viruses in patients with lymphoproliferative diseases, HHV-6 is now recognized as a T-cell lymphotropic virus with high affinity for CD4 lymphocytes. Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is the etiologic agent of exanthema subitum, a febrile rash illness that can occur during early childhood and that is occasionally accompanied by convulsions.

After resolution of primary infection, HHV-6 remains latent in the host and may reactivate during immunosuppression [ 1 ], inducing end-organ diseases. EPIDEMIOLOGY OF VIRAL INFECTIONS.

The list of viral pathogens that have led to significant infections in pediatric patients with malignancy or those undergoing HCT is lengthy [].The growth of this list is multi-factorial including improved diagnostic modalities to identify previously existing but unrecognized viral pathogens (e.g., human metapneumovirus (HMPV)) as well as previously .
