What Is The Difference Between Hsv 1 And Hsv 2

While both herpes 1 and 2 cause the same type of painful cold sore, the key difference between the two types is recurrence risk. While you can certainly get herpes 2 on your lips and herpes 1 on your labia or penis, this is mostly likely going to be a one shot deal. The primary difference between the two viral types is in where they typically establish latency in the body- their site of preference. HSV-1 usually establishes latency in the trigeminal ganglion, a collection of nerve cells near the ear. The herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a double-stranded DNA virus with an enveloped, icosahedral capsid. The virus infects more than 40 million Americans between the ages of 15 and 75, and in extreme cases, can appear in and about the eyes, esophagus, trachea, brain, and arms and legs (see below).

My understanding on HSV 1 is that the vast majority of people have it and caught it as children and had the usual cold sore outbreaks. One major difference between the two viruses is their site of preference: oral versus genital. I sometimes get herpes blisters (HSV-1) next to or on my lips and this is the case with my girlfriend as well. Is there a difference between cold sores and genital herpes? How the HSV1 and HSV2 strains are different from one another and the similarities they share.

Once Is Enough For Herpes Simplex Virus 1 (HSV1)

He is very interested in the herpes simplex virus and is a member of the Herpes Simplex Virus Advisory Panel, which is a sub-group of the prestigious British Association for Sexual Health and HIV. The difference between types 1 and 2. Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2) , also known as human herpesvirus 1 and 2 (HHV-1 and HHV-2) , are two members of the herpesvirus family, Herpesviridae, that infect humans. However, a more recent prospective study published in 2008 with a cohort of 591 people showed a statistically significant difference between patients with antibodies indicating recent reactivation of HSV and those without these antibodies in the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, without direct correlation to the APOE-epsilon4 allele.

I have HSV1 (oral) , basically a cold sore 2 or 3 times a year. The primary difference between HSV 1 and 2 are where they tend to establish latency. Ever notice how friends or coworkers will complain that they are getting a cold sore, but no one ever announces when they are suffering from a genital herpes outbreak? There is a stigma attached to genital herpes, while oral herpes is the subject of casual conversation and benignly referred to as cold sores. To set the facts straight, people should know the real difference between HSV1 and HSV2, between oral and genital herpes, and the causes and symptoms of each kind of infection. What are symptoms of the herpes virus? Planned Parenthood answers your questions about what testing and treatment options are available for this STD. Abstract. Serological tests for herpes simplex virus (HSV) that can accurately distinguish between HSV-1 and HSV-2 are now commercially available.

Antigenic Differences Between HSV-1 And HSV-2 Glycoproteins And Their Importance For Type-specific Serology

The main difference between the two types of herpes virus is in where they typically establish latency (lie dormant) in the body – their site of preference. Yes Jeane, Chickenpox is one form of a Herpes Virus. The biggest difference between all types of herpes is where the blister forms and the specific virus that caused it. The serum herpes simplex antibodies test also allows your physician to differentiate between HSV-1 and HSV-2, which is not always possible through a visual examination of the sores. Two types of herpes simplex virus infections can cause genital herpes: HSV-1. This is the type that usually causes cold sores or fever blisters around your mouth, though it can be spread to your genital area during oral sex. Many HSV serology assays, however, are not type-specific. The HerpeSelect IgG assays distinguish between HSV-1 and HSV-2 on the basis of differences in the patient’s immune response to HSV glycoprotein G (gG). This results in considerable cross-reactivity between the HSV-1 and HSV-2 glycoproteins, although unique antigenic determinants exist for each virus. Recognizing the differences among these reports both in the original case-definition of HSE and in the methodology of PCR employed, it is nevertheless useful to calculate a cumulate sensitivity and specificity of PCR in the diagnosis of HSE, with a relatively recent review of the literature suggesting that overall sensitivity is 96 and overall specificity is 99 (226). The genomes of human herpes virus type-1 and type-2 share a high degree of sequence identity; yet, they exhibit important differences in pathology in their natural human host as well as in animal host and cell cultures. We discuss the relevance of these findings and whether they may have potential roles in the pathological differences of HSV-1 and HSV-2.
