Viral Infections
chevron_left chevron_right

Several studies have reported a possible link between HHV-6 and multiple sclerosis (MS).Expression of HHV-6 proteins is observed at the site of MS lesions; cell-free HHV-6 DNA has been detected in the serum of MS patients. Reactivation of HHV-6 is also suspected to contribute to the pathogenesis of CFS.

It has been suggested that HHV-7 could reactivate HHV-6 from latency. Increased prevalence has been reported in people with autoimmune disease.

EBV (HHV-4) infects more than 90% of the world’s adult population. In most individuals persistence of the virus has no consequences; in some people however EBV is associated with the development of cancer. There is evidence that multiple sclerosis may sometimes occur as a consequence of an EBV infection.
