Abstract:

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections of humans have been documented since the advent of writing. The spectrum of disease was expanded to include primary and recurrent infections of mucous membranes (gingivostomatitis, herpes labialis, and genital HSV infections), keratoconjunctivitis, neonatal HSV infection, visceral HSV infections of the immunocompromised host, HSV encephalitis, Kaposi's varicella-like eruption, and an association with erythema multiforme. Cumulative experience suggests that factors associated with pregnancy may place both the mother and fetus at increased risk for severe infection, possibly because of altered cell-mediated immunity. The major risk to the fetus is with primary or initial genital HSV infection of the mother. PCR evaluation of cerebrospinal fluid can be utilized to monitor therapeutic outcome in patients with herpes simplex encephalitis. The use of HSV for gene therapy heralds a new era of herpes biology, the conversion of a hazardous foe into a user-friendly surgical tool. Asymptomatic shedding of virus can continue despite clinically effective suppression with acyclovir, so the possibility of person-to-person transmission persists. Newborns with HSV infections can be classified as having disease that is localized to the skin, eyes, and mouth; affects the central nervous system (CNS); or is disseminated. Drug resistance was considered rare and resistant isolates were thought to be less pathogenic until a series of acyclovir-resistant HSV isolates from patients with AIDS were characterized. The risk of nephrotoxicity can be minimized by administering acyclovir by slow infusion and ensuring adequate hydration.

FIGURE 1

Schematic representation of the replication of HSVs in susceptible cells. 1, The virus initiates infection by fusion of the viral envelope with the plasma membrane following attachment to the cell surface. 2, Fusion of the membranes releases two proteins from the virion. VHS shuts off protein synthesis (broken RNA in open polyribosomes). α-TIF (the α gene -inducing factor) is transported to the nucleus. 3, The capsid is transported to the nuclear pore, where viral DNA is released into the nucleus and immediately circularizes. 4, The transcription of α genes by cellular enzymes is induced by α-TIF. 5, The five α mRNAs are transported into the cytoplasm and translated (filled polyribosome); the proteins are transported into the nucleus. 6, A new round of transcription results in the synthesis of β proteins. 7, At this stage in the infection, the chromatin (c) is degraded and displaced toward the nuclear membrane, whereas the nucleoli (round hatched structures) become disaggregated. 8, Viral DNA is replicated by a rolling-circle mechanism which yields head-to-tail concatemers of unit length viral DNA. 9, A new round of transcription/translation yields the γ proteins, consisting primarily of structural proteins of the virus. 10, The capsid proteins form empty capsids. 11, Unit length viral DNA is cleaved from concatemers and packaged into the preformed capsids. 12, Capsids containing viral DNA acquire a new protein. 13, Viral glycoproteins and tegument proteins accumulate and form patches in cellular membranes. The capsids containing DNA and the additional protein attach to the underside of the membrane patches containing viral proteins and are enveloped. 14, The enveloped proteins accumulate in the endoplasmic reticulum and are transported into the extracellular space.
