Summary of "The epidemiology of herpes simplex virus type 1 in Asia: systematic review, meta-analyses, and meta-regressions."

To characterize herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) epidemiology in Asia by assessing seroprevalence levels and extent to which HSV-1 is isolated from clinically-diagnosed genital ulcer disease (GUD) and genital herpes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A group of acute infections caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 or type 2 that is characterized by the development of one or more small fluid-filled vesicles with a raised erythematous base on the skin or mucous membrane. It occurs as a primary infection or recurs due to a reactivation of a latent infection. (Dorland, 27th ed.)

Trans-acting protein that combines with host factors to induce immediate early gene transcription in herpes simplex virus.

A cellular transcriptional coactivator that was originally identified by its requirement for the stable assembly IMMEDIATE-EARLY PROTEINS of the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS. It is a nuclear protein that is a transcriptional coactivator for a number of transcription factors including VP16 PROTEIN; GA-BINDING PROTEIN; EARLY GROWTH RESPONSE PROTEIN 2; and E2F4 TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR. It also interacts with and stabilizes HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS PROTEIN VMW65 and helps regulate GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of IMMEDIATE-EARLY GENES in HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS.

Infection of the genitals (GENITALIA) with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in either the males or the females.

Herpes simplex, caused by type 1 virus, primarily spread by oral secretions and usually occurring as a concomitant of fever. It may also develop in the absence of fever or prior illness. It commonly involves the facial region, especially the lips and the nares. (Dorland, 27th ed.)
