    Abstract : Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a widespread infection affecting 50-90% of the human population. A typical silent primary infection is followed by life-long persistence in the host under control by virus-specific CD8 (“killer”) and CD4 (“helper”) T cells. READ MORE

    Abstract : Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a β-herpesvirus that, after primary infection, establishes a life-long persistence in the human host. Up to 90% of humans are infected with CMV, that is kept under control by CMV-specific CD8+ and CD4+ T cells. In patients with an impaired cellular immunity, however, CMV infections can be life-threatening. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards understanding of Human Cytomegalovirus in Glioblastoma

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a widely prevalent herpesvirus. Following an active primary infection, often asymptomatic or subclinical in immunocompetent individuals, the virus establishes latency. READ MORE

  5. 5. Herpesvirus infections in transplant recipients

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Abstract : Abstract Herpesvirus infections are common and can cause serious and life-threatening conditions in transplanted individuals. In this thesis, consisting of 4 papers (I-IV), we investigated primary infection and reactivation of Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Human Herpesvirus type 6 (HHV-6), Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) and Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) in transplant patients.
