A team of virologists and metabolomics specialists collaborated to demonstrate how chromosomally integrated HHV-6 can be stimulated to secrete factors that simultaneously cause mitochondrial fragmentation, a reduction in intracellular ATP reserve and an expanded antiviral defense by their neighboring cells.
Antibodies to HHV-6 and VZV dUTPases were significantly elevated in Gulf War Illness patients compared to controls, and EBV dUTPase antibodies were elevated in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients.
Researchers at the University Of South Florida’s Morsani College Of Medicine have published findings that suggest ciHHV-6 is the possible cause of some CFS cases
A new theory suggests CFS may be the result of a pathological infection of the vagus nerve.
This new assay will hopefully open the door for increased exploration into the seroepidemiology of HHV-6A and HHV-6B infection.
Findings indicate that HHV-6 infection leads to decreased glutathione production, increased oxidative stress, and induces chlamydial persistence during co-infection
