Herpes virus infections are some of the most contagious infections in the world. Of the 115 strains that have been discovered to infect more than 50 animal species, 8 strains are known to infect humans. The word “herpes” comes from the Greek meaning “to creep”.
The two most common forms of herpes virus are Herpes Simplex type 1, associated with fever blisters and cold sores in and around the mouth and Herpes simplex type 2, which most commonly infects the ano-genital region, causing genital herpes. Herpes simplex-type viruses are also able to infect the throat, eyes, lungs and brain (encephalitis). Scientists have discovered links between herpes simplex viruses and the development of Alzheimer’s disease (type 1) and cervical cancer (type 2). Herpes Simplex type 2 can be transmitted to a newborn at birth through contact with active lesions in the birth canal. Serious cases in newborns can lead to systemic disease causing brain damage or death.
Herpes virus is a DNA type virus which infects the nerve cells of the body. Infection begins with attachment to and penetration of, a host cell (usually a post-mitotic cell), followed by integration of the viral DNA with the host DNA. Herpes virus encode enzymes involved in nucleic acid metabolism and DNA synthesis, allowing them to replicate in the nucleus of the host cell.
