polyDNA answers new questions on herpes, HSV, herpes virus, genital sores, etc. collected from the public in its March, 2013 survey. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March 13, 2013 Genital herpes can spread from one area in the body to another via touching active lesions, as well as through oral sex. One survey respondent commented, “I mean I don´t know“¦can herpes really travel from one spot on your genitals to say, your legs or someplace else on your body? Sometimes I get...

A team of researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have successfully flushed latent HIV infection from hiding, with a drug used to treat certain types of lymphoma. Tackling latent HIV in the immune system is critical to finding a cure for AIDS. The results were presented today at the 19th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Seattle, Washington. While current antiretroviral therapies can very effectively control virus levels, they can never...

In what may prove to be a major step forward for the treatment of HIV-1 infection, scientists have discovered an effective way to eliminate a notoriously persistent form of the virus that does not respond to current therapies. The research, published online by Cell Press on March 8th from the journal Immunity, describes a vaccination strategy that may be essential for successful eradication efforts and should therefore be considered for future clinical trials. Current antiretroviral...

--Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Study Sheds Light on How HIV Takes Over Cell Cycle -- PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New research enhances the current knowledge of how human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1), which causes AIDS, controls the cell cycle of cells that it infects. The new findings may shed light on how the virus reactivates after entering a dormant state, called latency. "As we better understand the biological events that revive HIV from...

New research identifies a molecular mechanism that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) appears to utilize for generating random fluctuations called "noise" in its gene expression. The study, published by Cell Press in the April 20th issue of the Biophysical Journal, pinpoints the likely source of HIV gene-expression noise and provides intriguing insight into the role of this noise in driving HIV's fate decision between active replication and latency. After infecting a human cell, HIV...

Random fluctuations in gene expression can influence the fates of cells infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) far more than previously thought, according to new research from Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) researchers at the University of California, Berkeley. By combining experimental and computational studies of HIV's replication cycle, the researchers found evidence that the virus may become latent in some cells by harnessing the random molecular behavior of the cell....

Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2), are two members of the virus family Herpesviridae that infect humans. They are both ubiquitous and contagious and can spread when an infected person is producing and shedding the virus. Symptoms include watery blisters in the skin, mouth, lips, or genitals. Lesions usually heal with a scab characteristic of herpetic disease. HSV-1 and -2 remain latent in the body hiding from the immune system in the cell bodies of nerves. Some people do...

Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
This word was invented in 1926 by H.P. Lovecraft for his short story, 'The Call of Cthulhu.' 'Cthulhu' may be based on the word 'chthonic,' which in Greek mythology refers to the underworld.
