Infections with human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6), a ß-herpesvirus of which two variant groups (A and B) are recognized, is very common, approaching 100% in seroprevalence. Primary infection with HHV-6B causes roseola infantum or exanthem subitum, a common childhood disease that resolves spontaneously. After primary infection, the virus replicates in the salivary glands and is shed in saliva, the recognized route of transmission for variant B strains; it remains latent in lymphocytes and monocytes and persists at low levels in cells and tissues. Not usually associated with disease in the immunocompetent, HHV-6 infection is a major cause of opportunistic viral infections in the immunosuppressed, typically AIDS patients and transplant recipients, in whom HHV-6 infection/reactivation may culminate in rejection of transplanted organs and death. Other opportunistic viruses, human cytomegalovirus and HHV-7, also infect or reactivate in persons at risk. Another disease whose pathogenesis may be correlated with

What is Roseola Infantum: Roseola infantum is the sixth of the traditional exanthems of childhood. The condition is an acute benign disease of childhood characterized by a history of a prodromal febrile illness lasting approximately 3 days, followed by defervescence and the appearance of a faint pink maculopapular rash.
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) was the sixth herpesvirus discovered. Isolated in 1986 during attempts to find novel viruses in patients with lymphoproliferative diseases, HHV-6 is now recognized as a T-cell lymphotropic virus with high affinity for CD4 lymphocytes.
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6A and HHV-6B) can cause primary infection or reactivate from latency in liver transplant recipients, which can result in a variety of clinical syndromes, including fever, hepatitis, encephalitis and higher rates of graft dysfunction as well as indirect effects including increased risks of mortality, CMV disease, hepatitis C progression and greater fibrosis scores. Although HHV-6 infection is currently diagnosed by quantifying viral DNA in plasma or blood, biopsy to demonstrate histopathological effects of HHV-6 remains the gold standard for diagnosis of end-organ disease. HHV-6 reactivation may be restricted to the infected organ with no evidence of active infection in the blood. Read More ...

Professional antigen presenting cells (APC), i.e., dendritic cells, monocytes/macrophages, and B lymphocytes, are critically important in the recognition of an invading pathogen and presentation of antigens to the T cell-mediated arm of immunity. Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) is one of the few human viruses that primarily targets these APC for infection, altering their cytokine profiles, manipulating their surface expression of MHC molecules and altering their ability to activate HHV-8 specific T cells. This could be why T cell responses to HHV-8 antigens are not very robust. Of these APC, only B cells support complete, lytic HHV-8 infection. However, both complete and abortive virus replication cycles in APC could directly affect viral pathogenesis and progression to Kaposis sarcoma (KS) and HHV-8 associated B cell cancers. In this review, we discuss the effects of HHV-8 infection on professional APC and their relationship to the development of KS and B cell lymphomas.

Integration of the complete human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) genome into the telomere of a chromosome has been reported in some individuals (inherited chromosomally integrated HHV-6; iciHHV-6). Since the proportion of iciHHV-6-positive individuals with integration in chromosome 22 is high in Japan, we hypothesized a founder effect. In this study, we sought to elucidate the reason for the high proportion of viral integrations into chromosome 22. We analyzed six cases of iciHHV-6A and two cases of iciHHV-6B, including one iciHHV-6A case with a matched sample from a father and one iciHHV-6B case with a matched sample from a mother. In iciHHV-6A, the same copy numbers of viral telomeric repeat sequences (TRS) and the same five microsatellite markers were detected in both the index case and paternal sample. Moreover, the same five microsatellite markers were demonstrated in four cases and the same copy numbers of viral TRS were demonstrated in two pairs of two cases. The present microsatellite analysis suggested

Human Herpes virus-8 (HHV-8) is the known etiologic agent for several malignant pathologies, including Kaposis sarcoma (KS), the most common tumor in children in sub-Saharan Africa. Saliva is implicated as the culprit of transmission; however there is a paucity of information regarding transmission to young children. In this study, we investigated the hypothesis that household behaviors exposing the susceptible child to saliva increase the risk of transmission of HHV-8 to that child. To test our hypothesis a large prospective cohort study in Lusaka, Zambia, enrolling 464 young children and their households, was followed for 48 months. Socio-demographics, health histories, feeding and child-rearing behaviors were assessed. At enrollment, 75 HHV-8 positive children were analyzed for existing risk factors contributing to HHV-8 seropositivity. Analysis for independent variables found that for each additional HHV-8 positive household member, there was 2.5 greater odds for the child to be HHV-8 positive (P |

Herpesviruses 6, 7, and 8 are the most recently described members of the human herpesvirus family. Like other herpesviruses, they have the ability to establish a latent or persistent infection following primary infection, and reactivation may occur in healthy and immunocompromised people in response to different stimuli. A variety of methods are available or under development for the laboratory diagnosis of each virus, including viral isolation in cell culture, demonstration of viral antigens or nucleic acids in body fluids or tissues, and serology for detection of virus-specific antibodies. This chapter focuses on the immunologic and molecular diagnosis and monitoring of infections with human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6), HHV-7, and HHV-8, and provides information on the unique features of the epidemiology and biological and clinical characteristics of these viruses.
Our colleagues have developed a technique for rapidly and quantitatively detecting antibody responses in sera to a variety of antigens using recombinant proteins. We would like to apply this technique to develop an assay for detecting antibodies to HHV- 8 (KSHV, the etiologic agent of Kaposi s sarcoma, an AIDS-defining condition). In addition we would like to potentially measure antibody responses to HIV, other infectious agents, and human antigens, to see if antibodies (or high antibody titers) to these antigens are associated with Kaposi s sarcoma or HIV infection. We initially plan to examine samples from patients with Kaposi s sarcoma, since all those patients are almost certainly infected with HHV-8. We would subsequently plan to examine samples from HIV positive and HIV negative patients without known Kaposi s sarcoma. We are thus requesting permission to use samples from patients with and without previously diagnosed Kaposis Sarcoma. In addition to antibody testing, we would also like to ...

Human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8) appears to be transmitted mainly by sexual contact. However, several studies suggest that in developing countries the infection may be acquired early in life by routes other than sexual transmission. The present study estimated the seroprevalence of HHV-8 in Brazilian children born to HIV-1-infected mothers. The serum samples were collected in a cross-sectional cohort study from 99 children born to HIV-infected mothers (median age 3.27 years; range 1.5-13.8 years) attending the outpatient clinic of the Federal University of São Paulo. IgG antibodies to HHV-8 latency-associated nuclear antigen and lytic phase antigens were detected by immunofluorescence assays. The samples tested were collected from children aged 12 months or older to exclude the possibility of cross-placental antibody transport. The total prevalence of anti-lytic antibodies in this population (5/99; 5%) reveals that HHV-8 infection can occur during childhood. Children aged 1.5 to 2 years had a ...

The various methods used for the diagnosis of HHV-6 include PCR, serology, viral culture, in situ hybridization, and immunohistochemistry. Since HHV-6 has the ability to persist and establish latency, the problem arises that diagnostic tests must be able to distinguish active viral replication from latent infection. Reverse transcription-PCR assays have been developed to detect the presence of viral mRNA, which constitutes a marker for active infection (44). The detection of immunoglobulin M or immunoglobulin G antibodies to HHV-6 in serum or CSF does not discriminate between active infection and latent/chronic persistent infection. The same is true for the detection of HHV-6 DNA by PCR in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), the site where the virus establishes latency. In these cases, HHV-6 DNA can be detected by PCR in PBMCs at low levels (9). Viral culture is a difficult and time-consuming process and is not routinely used in clinical laboratories to detect virus in CSF specimens. ...
Transcriptional activator of immediate-early (IE) gene products (alpha genes). Acts as a key activator of lytic infection by initiating the lytic program through the assembly of the transcriptional regulatory VP16-induced complex composed of VP16 and two cellular factors, HCFC1 and POU2F 1. VP16-induced complex represents a regulatory switch: when it is on, it promotes IE-gene expression and thus lytic infection, and when it is off, it limits IE-gene transcription favoring latent infection.
Forms a portal in the viral capsid through which viral DNA is translocated during DNA packaging. Assembles as a dodecamer at a single fivefold axe of the T=16 icosahedric capsid. Binds to the molecular motor that translocates the viral DNA, termed terminase.

Human herpesvirus 6B (HHV-6B) is a DNA virus that infects most children within the first few years of life. After primary infection, HHV-6B persists as a chronic, latent infection in many cell types. Additionally, HHV-6B can integrate into germ line chromosomes, resulting in individuals with viral DNA in every nucleated cell. Given that PCR to detect viral DNA is the mainstay for diagnosing HHV-6B infection, the characteristics of HHV-... ...
Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8), a lymphotropic gammaherpesvirus, is the etiologic agent of Kaposis sarcoma (KS). Results from serologic assays for HHV-8 infection have variable concordance, primarily in low risk populations. The detection of HHV-8 infection could be improved by optimization of existing serologic tests, development of new assays and effective algorithms, better understanding of the immune response, and identification of new diagnostic antigens. To address this, a number of HHV-8 serologic tests were developed or modified and compared to existing methods. IgG, IgK and IgA isotype seroprevalences against the Orf 65 antigen were 93%, 87%, and 40% in KS samples, respectively---much higher than observed in USA blood donors (BDs: ,3%). In comparison studies, the K8.1 IgG ELISA had the best overall diagnostic performance. For seropositive BDs, there was poor agreement among multiple tests. HHV-8 seroprevalence in non-KS samples was highest in Africa (9%--42%), followed by the Middle East ...

By contrast, human parvovirus B19 (B19), a causative agent for anemia, is most frequently detected in IDUs. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between HHV-8 infection and human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), and between B-19 and HIV-1 among MSM and IDUs patients. Methods: Serum samples from 553 IDUs and 231 MSM were analyzed for anti-HHV-8 lytic and anti-B19 viral structural capsid protein 2 (VP-2) antibodies ...
Human herpesvirus 7 (HHV-7) is one of nine known members of the Herpesviridae family that infects humans. HHV-7 is a member of Betaherpesviridae, a subfamily of the Herpesviridae that also includes HHV-6 and cytomegalovirus (HHV-5 or HCMV). HHV-7 often acts together with HHV-6, and the viruses together are sometimes referred to by their genus, Roseolovirus. HHV-7 was first isolated in 1990 from CD4+ T cells taken from peripheral blood lymphocytes. Both HHV-6B and HHV-7, as well as other viruses, can cause a skin condition in infants known as exanthema subitum, although HHV-7 causes the disease less frequently than HHV-6B. HHV-7 infection also leads to or is associated with a number of other symptoms, including acute febrile respiratory disease, fever, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, low lymphocyte counts, and febrile seizures, though most often no symptoms present at all. There are indications that HHV-7 can contribute to the development of drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome, encephalopathy, ...

Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) belongs to the subfamily Betaherpesvirinae (30), which is represented by Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV). Both HHV-6 and HCMV establish latency in the monocyte/macrophage lineage (9, 17-19, 25, 33, 38), and during latent infection HHV-6 and HCMV express latency-associated transcripts that show similar features: (i) both transcripts contain open reading frames (ORFs) encoding immediate-early proteins IE1 and IE2 (20, 21) and (ii) both transcripts are expressed in a small proportion of latently infected cells (19, 20, 32). The function and expression profile of these transcripts have been unknown (24, 39).. In the present study, we first developed a sensitive method to detect the latency-associated transcripts of HHV-6 (H6LTs). Because productive-phase IE1 and IE2 transcripts share their entire sequences with H6LTs (Fig. 1), we previously used the 5′ rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) method to distinguish H6LTs from IE1 and IE2 transcripts (20). To increase the ...
