LP14558-8     Herpes simplex virus

DESCRIPTION
  Part: Herpes simplex virus
  Description: The herpes simplex virus (HSV) manifests itself in two common viral infections, each marked by painful, watery blisters in the skin or mucous membranes (such as the mouth or lips) or on the genitals. The disease is contagious, particularly during an outbreak, and is incurable with present technology. An infection on the lips is commonly known as a cold sore or fever blister. These are sometimes confused with canker sores or aphthous ulcers, which have a similar appearance; these appear inside the mouth and are not caused by the herpes simplex virus. When not symptomatic HSV lies dormant in nerve cells, growing along the axons of the skin during an outbreak. When the outbreak has passed, the virus 'dies back' along the nerve until it is only present in the nerve body. The dormancy of the virus within the nerve bodies contributes to the difficulty of treatment.

  Part: Herpes simplex virus
  Description: Herpes viruses may cause a wide variety of lesions. Approximately 85% of primary genital HSV infections and 99% of recurrent disease are caused by HSV-2. Immunocompromised patients are at higher risk for development of severe infections. HSV infection causes expression of a beta-galactosidase "reporter gene." Expression of this gene can be used to monitor HSV infection. Information from LOINC partner 1 and Jacobs and DeMott Laboratory Test Handbook, 5th edition, DS Jacobs, WR DeMott and DK Oxley, 2001.
