Herpes research web site

accelerate the response

This new web site contains a series of research articles about HSV and I am very pleased to see that access to the articles themselves is free, and that an open access policy is the cornerstone of this new Academic Journal. I hope it is an encouraging sign that the enormous damage, both physical and psychological, caused by the Herpes Virus is now being recognised and addressed much more closely by the scientific community:

"About Herpesviridae

This page includes information about the aims and scope of Herpesviridae, editorial policies, open access and article-processing charges, the peer-review process and other information. For details of how to prepare and submit a manuscript through the online submission system, please see the instructions for authors.

Aims and scope

Herpesviridae is an open access journal created by scientists in the field, publishing high quality articles that contribute to the overall knowledge of the role of herpes viruses in health and disease. The eight viruses belonging to the family of human Herpesviridae are: Herpes simplex 1 and 2, Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Varicella-Zoster and Human herpes virus 6, 7 and 8. The ability to establish life-long latency after primary infection is a common denominator for these large species-specific DNA viruses, as is their ability to reactivate during life and cause morbidity and mortality. These viruses are endemic worldwide and many of them are carried by 70-100% of the world's population. Recognition of the significance of herpes viruses as potential pathogens has increased during the past three decades, due to the escalation in the number of patients undergoing immunosuppressive therapy following organ or bone marrow transplantation, as well as to the increasing incidence of AIDS. The ability of these viruses to control various cellular and immunological functions in order to ensure their survival has focused attention on the potential role of these viruses in the development of vascular and autoimmune syndromes as well as various cancers.

Herpesviridae also welcomes studies on animal herpes viruses as well as studies utilizing animal models to gain knowledge of the role of herpes viruses in health and disease.

Open access

All articles published by Herpesviridae are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Further information about open access can be found here.

Authors of articles published in Herpesviridae are the copyright holders of their articles and have granted to any third party, in advance and in perpetuity, the right to use, reproduce or disseminate the article, according to the BioMed Central copyright and license agreement."

      Hi everyone  I have Ghsv1. 3 months I receive frequent outbreaks. There are no lesion redness, burning and itching as just a rash. I know that herpes trigger opportunistic infections. How do I know this mushroom or that herpes ?  Do you have frequent outbreaks is living Ghsv1? I feel alone

      I have been positive for about 8 months and I’ve generally been open to friends and family about my status. I’ve tried a brief stint with dating other H+ folks from Postive Singles and it hasn’t really worked out.  There’s this guy who works security at my gym and he’s been chatting me up a lot recently. I like him and I haven’t made any moves but I get the vibe he’s getting ready to ask me out. It sucks because he’s obviously interested and I would love to go out on a date with him.  I’ve never had to disclose to a new person before and I’m really really really dreading this. I’m dreading it to the point where Im wondering if I should turn him down if he does ask me. I hate this. You know I could handle the symptoms of herpes, the only thing that sucks about this thing is that it’s contagious. I have zero problem taking drugs everyday, but valtrex is so fucking inadequate with providing me any reassurance of reducing transmission.  I’m so frustrated. Just give me some better fucking drugs so I can feel confident again.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.
