The HSV I + II dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for qPCR detection of both Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-I) and type 2 (HSV-II). Herpes simplex is aviral disease from the herpes viridae family caused by bothvirus types 1 and 2. Infection with the herpes virus is categorized into one of several distinct disorders based on the site of infection. Oral herpes, the visible symptoms of which are colloquially called cold soresor fever blisters, is an infection of the face or mouth. Oral herpes is the most common form of infection. Genital herpes, known simply as herpes, is the second most common form of herpes. Other disorders such as herpetic whit low,herpes gladiatorum,ocular herpes, cerebral herpes infectionencephalitis, Mollaret’s meningitis, neonatal herpes, and possibly Bell’s palsyare all caused by herpes simplex viruses. Following active infection, herpes viruses establish alatentinfection in sensory and autonomicganglia of the nervous system. The double-stranded DNA of the virus is incorporated into the cell physiology by infection of the nucleus of a nerve’scell body. HSV latency is static—no virus is produced—and is controlled by a number of viral genes, including Latency Associated Transcript (LAT).
