  1. Epidemiology of herpes simplex virus type 2 infections in a high-risk adolescent population.

    Article - En anglais

    The seroprevalence of infection with type 2 herpes simplex virus (HSV-2) was determined in 135 adolescents detained in a juvenile detention facility.

    A total of 16% of enrollees were seropositive for HSV-2.

    Age of onset of sexual intercourse, number of lifetime partners, frequency of condom use, and history of sexually transmitted diseases did not predict HSV-2 seropositivity.
