During the month of June, which is Congenital Cytomegalovirus Awareness Month, polyDNA highlights the dangers newborns face when CMV is passed from the mother to the child during childbirth. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) June 14, 2013 During the month of June, polyDNA will be lowering the price of Gene-Eden-VIR by 50% for women planning to become pregnant and who have a latent cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection verified by a doctor. polyDNA is a leading producer of natural CMV remedies. As the CDC...

La Jolla Institute and Cardiff University discovery aids efforts toward cytomegalovirus vaccine A virus most people probably have never heard of, but that the majority of us carry, is the No. 1 infectious cause of congenital birth defects in the U.S. today. Because of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection during in utero development, 1 in 750 children are born with or develop permanent disabilities such as hearing loss or brain damage. But efforts to develop a first-ever CMV vaccine are gaining...

Ribosome-mapping technique may provide insights into other viral proteomes as well New findings reveal the surprisingly complex protein-coding capacity of the human cytomegalovirus, or HCMV, and provide the first steps toward understanding how the virus manipulates human cells during infection. The genome of the HCMV was first sequenced over 20 years ago, but researchers have now investigated the proteome–the complete set of expressed proteins–of this common pathogen as well....

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A common, yet normally dormant virus has been found to cause diabetes later in life in people who are infected with it. The virus, known as cytomegalovirus (CMV), can infect anyone and once a person is infected, he or she has the virus for life. However, in most people, CMV causes no ill effects. The link was found by researchers from Leiden University Medical Center (the Netherlands) and University of Tubingen Medical School...

Cytomegalovirus, a herpes viral genus, is known in humans as HCMV. It is part of the Betaherpesvirinae subfamily. Other herpesviruses fall into the subfamilies of Alphaherpesvirinae or Gammaherpesvirinae. xHCMV infections are frequently associated with salivary glands. It can be lethal for people who are immunocompromised. Other CMV viruses are found in several mammal species, but species isolated from animals differ from HCMV in terms of genomic structure. HCMV is found all over the...
