A recent study from investigators at Chongqing University in China explored the involvement of three viruses in the progression of pituitary adenomas (PA). The authors suggest that the HPV-16 and HHV-6 viruses activate the TLR3/ NF-kB signaling pathway which in turn contributes to the progression and proliferation of invasive pituitary adenomas.
Since the discovery of chromosomally integrated HHV-6 (ciHHV-6), investigators have wondered about the potential consequences of having chromosome integrated HHV-6 in the genome.
Scottish study finds inheritance of ciHHV-6 does not increase the risk of developing cHL
A group from Finland’s Helsinki University Hospital has published preliminary evidence to suggest HHV-6B may be involved in the development of adenomatous gastrointestinal polyps
A research team from Riga Stradins University in Latvia has reported that the activation of HHV-6B and HHV-7 in patients with gastrointestinal cancer may lead to a marked decrease in lymphocytes and worsening of immunosuppression.
Investigators from Nanjing Medical University have found HHV-6 latent infection in glioma tissues, and have isolated a strain of HHV-6A from the glioma cyst.
A thorough investigation of the association between HHV-6 and Hodgkin’s lymphoma finds the presence of HHV-6 in a majority of nodular sclerosis cases of HL.
