N Engl J Med. 1999 Nov 4;341(19):1432-8. A prospective study of new infections with herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2. Chiron HSV Vaccine Study Group. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are the most common cause of genital ulcers in adults but acquisition and chronic infection are more commonly asymptomatic than symptomatic. Experimental data suggest that reactivation in the ganglia leading to release of virus in the genital tract is limited by T lymphocyte and cytokine signaling within the ganglia 25. A prospective study of new infections with herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2. Genital herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are a major global public health problem:A dramatic upsurge in genital HSV infections has been documented from seroprevalence studies. Bradley H, Markowitz LE, Gibson T, McQuillan GM. A prospective study of new infections with herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2. Chiron HSV Vaccine Study Group.
It is counterintuitive that sexual transmission of herpes simplex virus (HSV) more commonly results from contact during a short episode of asymptomatic shedding than from contact with lesions. In this study, we estimated the seroprevalence of HSV-1 and HSV-2 infection using the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data. A prospective study of new infections with herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2. A 12-Year Prospective Study of Childhood Herpes Simplex Encephalitis: Is There a Broader Spectrum of Disease?. Of 322 cases of acute encephalitis, 5 were caused by herpes simplex virus.
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection is a common cause of ulcerative mucocutaneous disease in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals. Prospective studies have shown that oral and genital shedding of HSV (both HSV-1 and HSV-2) occurs more frequently among those who are also infected with HIV-1 than among HSV-infected/HIV-1-uninfected persons. Schacker T, Zeh J, Hu HL, Hill E, Corey L. Frequency of symptomatic and asymptomatic herpes simplex virus type 2 reactivations among human immunodeficiency virus-infected men. Strick LB, Wald A. Diagnostics for herpes simplex virus: is PCR the new gold standard? Among those infected with HSV-2, the percentage who reported having been diagnosed with genital herpes was statistically different (14. A prospective study of new infections with herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is a highly infectious virus which is primarily transmitted by oral-oral contact and causes orolabial herpes (notably cold sores ) in those infected 1. The estimates assume that the proportions of new HSV-1 infections that are genital versus oral are the same for both symptomatic and asymptomatic people.

Asymptomatic Shedding Of Herpes Simplex Virus 1 And 2: Implications For Prevention Of Transmission
Studies investigating the interaction between HSV-1 and HSV-2 infection have produced conflicting results, and other studies have collected the relevant data but not investigated this interaction. Lowhagen GB, Tunback P, Bergstrom T. Proportion of herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and type 2 among genital and extragenital HSV isolates. A prospective study of new infections with herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2. Herpes simplex viruses are evolutionarily ancient and ubiquitous. In the past 20 years, there has been increasing recognition of a worldwide pandemic of HSV-2 infection. A prospective study of new infections. HSV-1. In univariate analysis, an independent two-sample t test was used for the normally distributed continuous variables and 2 test was used to compare categorical variables. A prospective study is needed to demonstrate that HSV-1 infection associate with the subsequent development of type 2 diabetes. Jun HS, Yoon JW: A new look at viruses in type 1 diabetes.

Opens Table in new tab. Symptoms of herpes simplex virus infection include watery blisters in the skin or mucous membranes of the mouth, lips or genitals. In an outbreak, the virus in a nerve cell becomes active and is transported via the neuron’s axon to the skin, where virus replication and shedding occur and cause new sores.
