  1. 1. Functions of glycoprotein G of herpes simplex virus type 2

    Author : Staffan Görander; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Herpes simplex virus type 2; glycoprotein G-2; type specific serology; vaccine; Tanzania;

    Abstract : Background: Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is a common sexually transmitted infection with more than 500 million individuals infected world-wide. A major global health problem is that HSV-2 infection facilitates the spread of HIV. This epidemiological situation warrants the development of a vaccine to reduce the spread of HSV-2. READ MORE

  2. 2. Innate and acquired immunity to herpes simplex virus type 2 glycoprotein G in humans

    Author : Lars Bellner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : herpes simplex virus type 2; glycoprotein G-2; T-cell proliferation; Th1 cytokines; phagocytes; NK cells; reactive oxygen species; formyl peptide receptors;

    Abstract : Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is a sexually transmitted pathogen that infects the human genital tract mucosa and is the most common cause of genital ulcer disease in humans. The infection exhibits a broad clinical spectrum, ranging from severe recurrent episodes of genital herpes to being completely asymptomatic. READ MORE

  3. 3. Glycoprotein G of Herpes simplex virus type 2. Antigenicity and genetic variability

    Author : Jan-Åke Liljeqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Herpes simplex virus type 2; glycoprotein G; antigenic regions; sequence variability;

    Abstract : Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) causes genital lesions, meningitis and occasionally, severe neonatal infections. Globally HSV-2 infection is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic variants of herpes simplex virus type 1

    Author : Elham Rekabdar; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; s simplex virus type 1; glycoprotein G; genovariants; intrastrain diversity;

    Abstract : Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) virus causes oral as well as genital lesions, and, on rare occasions, focal encephalitis and severe neonatal infections. Due to the partly overlapping clinical manifestations of infection with HSV-1 and its closest relative among herpesviruses, HSV-2, diagnostic methods are required to discriminate between infections with these two viruses.

  5. 5. Herpes simplex virus infection: epidemiological aspects and analysis of the type-specific antibody response

    Author : Petra Tunbäck; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; herpes simplex virus; first episode genital herpes; seroepidemiology type-specific antibody-response; glycoprotein G-1; epitope-mapping;

    Abstract : Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2) are ubiquitous viruses, often leading to asymptomatic infections in humans. However, different clinical presentations can be seen including recurrent oral or genital lesions, meningitis and neonatal herpes. READ MORE
