Discovery shows how herpes simplex virus reactivates in neurons to trigger disease

from University of North Carolina Health Care via Medical Xpress

When we get cold sores, the reason is likely related to stress. In particular, the neurons in which the herpes simplex virus reside, are under stress. For the first time, researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine discovered a cellular mechanism that allows the virus to reactivate. They also found how brain cells are duped into allowing bits of virus to escape the very repressive environment in neurons and cause disease. more
