  1. Prevalence of human herpesvirus 6 in thai people and its correlation with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection.

    Article - En anglais

    Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is a human herpesvirus isolated from patients with various lymphoproliferative disorders and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

    The prevalence of HHV-6 infection and its correlation as a cofactor in pathogenicity of HIV infection was investigated in serum samples from 365 healthy volunteers at various age groups, 50 persons at risk for HIV-1 infection, and 90 HIV-1 seropositive individuals.

    Sera were screened and titrated for antibodies against HHV-6 by a standard indirect immunofluorescence assay on an acetone fixed HHV-6 infected HSB2 cells.

    The data show high prevalence of HHV-6 in Thailand (71.7%) and the infection is acquired early in life.
