Connections Between Herpes and Alzheimer

Hi everyone, today i read a bad new about herpes it was found in brain of Alzheimer patients. 

Chasing this unexpected finding, the researchers looked for genes from any virus, finding the greatest quantity of genes from HHV-6A and HHV-7, two incredibly common and closely related herpesviruses that are known to cause childhood rashes and fevers (there are nine known types of human-infecting herpesviruses, including the microbe that causes chicken pox). HHV-6 and -7 infection rates are thought to be close to 100 percent; that is to say, almost everyone carries these microbes.

They also found plenty of other viral DNA, Dudley says, and the amount of HHV wasn’t dramatically higher than for other viruses. DNA from HSV-1 and HSV-2 was also present in comparatively high quantities, although less so than the other herpes strains.

I hope this will help to accelerate herpes cure process.

As per my understanding they are saying they found more hhv6a and hhv7 dna in deceased patients brain.

I think it has nothing to do with hsv1 and hsv2.

am I right?

Sorry I was wrong.

I don't think you need to pay attention to so many complications now. In the current situation, you need to let more fund managers know that hsv exists.

Hsv is not important for fund managers i think. Thats why there was not even a better treatment in 30 years and this virus existed for 1000 years maybe more.

Hsv对于我认为的基金经理来说并不重要。这就是为什么在30年内甚至没有更好的治疗方法,并且这种病毒可能存在1000年以上。

So far there have been 1000 years

This news is probably as accurate as the ones that say drinking alcohol improves life expectancy, and then two weeks later another one comes out saying drinking alcohol reduces life expectancy etc etc. There seems to be a very low bar set for these articles in terms of correlation implying causation.

Actually they looked into brain and tried to find any virus dna and their finding was yes there is were viruses not just herpes but herpes was found 3/1 of brain thats why so much

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
