Herpes Simplex Infection

There are two main types of herpes simplex viruses (HSV). HSV type 1 infects the tissues around the lips and mouth (and rarely the eye), while hSv type 2 causes genital infections. Herpes produces recurrent clusters of small, painful blisters containing the virus. HSV infections are common it is estimated that 20-40 of the US population have recurrent infections of one or both forms. HSV type 1, in otherwise healthy adults, is not dangerous, but genital herpes occuring during pregnancy and delivery can produce a life-threatening infection in the newborn. Although most people are exposed to herpes viruses (contact with HSV type 1 is nearly universal), not everyone develops a recurrent

Potential contraindications to breastfeeding

Cytomegalovirus and rubella have been found in milk of infected mothers. The presence of these viruses in human milk is not considered a contraindication to breastfeeding since in the term infant they cause asymptomatic infections (Goldfarb, 1993). If present in the mother, hepatitis B is most likely to be transmitted during delivery, although it has been isolated from breast milk. For the nursing mother who acquires hepatitis while nursing, an important preventative measure for the infant is prompt immunization with the hepatitis B vaccine. Breastfeeding can then be encouraged. Although herpes simplex virus is unlikely to be shed into breast milk, breastfeeding would be contra-indicated in women who have active herpetic lesions on or near the nipple (Sullivan-Bolyai

Epidemiology and predisposing conditions

In the course of diseases promoting development of opportunistic infections. Transplant recipients are candidates for infectious esophagitis through different mechanisms drug-induced immunosuppression, chemotherapy and neutropenia. Furthermore, whereas bacterial and fungal infections predominate in the early phases following transplantation, when granulocyte number and function are more compromised, the cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection occurs a few months after transplantation when T-cell function is more impaired. In HIV-infected patients opportunistic infections develop and increase in frequency as immunodeficiency worsens. Esophageal and other opportunistic infections do not occur until immunodeficiency is severe, usually when the CD4 lymphocyte count is below 100-200 mm3, according to references 1-3. More recently, however, the widespread availability of highly active antiretro-viral therapy has been associated with an apparent decline in opportunistic infections in HIV-infected...

Immune Suppression and Inflammation

Respiratory tract, (2) loss of microvilli in the gastointestinal tract, (3) loss of mucin and goblet cells in the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary tracts, (4) squamous metaplasia with abnormal keratinization in the respiratory tract, (5) alterations in antigen-specific secretory immunoglobulin (Ig)A concentrations, (6) impairment of alveolar monocyte macrophage function, and (7) decreased integrity of the gut. In early studies of vitamin A deficiency in autopsy studies of humans and experimental animals, the findings included widespread pathological alterations in the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary tracts (87,368,369). During vitamin A deficiency, there is loss of mucin and goblet cells from the conjunctiva and squamous metaplasia of the conjunctiva and cornea (285,370) and impaired wound healing (298). Vitamin A is involved in the expression of both mucins (248,371) and keratins (249,372,373). Lactoferrin, an iron-binding glycoprotein involved in...

Phytochemical Diversity And Associated Biological Activities

The alkamides (isobutylamides) (Figure 2.2) and related polyacetylenes are fatty-acid derived molecules with unsaturated double and triple bond systems and are distributed in roots and flowers. E. angustifolia roots are an especially rich source of these compounds. The isobutylamides are the taste-tingling components of Echinacea that have analgesic properties and provide relief for sore throat symptoms. The isolated alkamides are also known to be mammalian lipoxygenase (LOX) and cyclo-oxygenase (COX) inhibitors (Muller-Jakic et al., 1994) which confer an anti-inflammatory activity. New research from our group has shown that lipophilic extracts of Echinacea containing isobutylamides and polyacetylenes are toxic to a variety of pathogenic fungi, including multidrug-resistant Candida spp. (Binns et al., 2000). This activity is enhanced by light and is relevant to traditional uses for treatments of sores and wounds and modern uses of Echinacea as a topical agent. Further studies by J....

Chronic Infection as a Cause of Atherosclerosis

Other infectious organisms are also suspect. One of the most obvious is the cytomegalovirus, a member of the herpes virus family. Many people carry this virus silently within their cells. When the immune system is impaired, the virus can activate and cause significant illness and even result in death. On some occasions, the virus can, instead of causing an acute illness with fever, chills, and muscle aches, result in a chronic infection that produces slow pathological changes in tissues, such as we see with atherosclerosis. One study looked at patients with coronary heart disease and found that these patients were positive for the virus in 90 percent of cases, versus 60 percent in controls. Finally, chickens infected with a cancer-causing herpes virus were also found to have profound atherosclerosis throughout all their blood vessels.303

Mercury and Multiple Sclerosis

Based on compelling evidence, the consensus in the medical community is that MS is an autoimmune disease. The big question is what triggers this autoimmunity There is growing evidence that a chronic viral infection (Herpes virus 7) plays a major role in this disorder, yet we also know that environmental and nutritional conditions can alter the course of the disease. High-fat diets, low in omega-3 fatty acids (from seafood) and high in omega-6 fatty acids (from vegetable oils), promote the disease and increase the severity of complications. Likewise, high antioxidant intake combined with a low-fat diet and increased DHA intake can reduce the severity of MS.

Evaluation of diarrheal diseases

Direct examination of the stool for the presence of mucus, blood, or leukocytes may be helpful in classifying infectious agents. For example, profusely watery stools without mucus, blood or leukocytes are characteristic of cholera, Salmonella, ETEC, C. parvum, Giardia and most viral agents. The presence of mucus, blood and leukocytes in the stool are more consistent with inflammatory infections such as Campylobacter, EIEC, Shigella, C. difficile, Yersinia, Entamoeba and cytomegalovirus.

Hivaids Complications

Contributing to weight loss and wasting is malabsorption (the failure of nutritional substances to be absorbed in the intestines). Malabsorption occurs in advanced cases of HIV infection when gastrointestinal disease is present. Diseases that can cause malabsorption in HIV AIDS patients include Kaposi's sarcoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, cytomegalovirus, Mycobacterium avium complex, and cryptosporidiosis. Malabsorption may require an alternative to oral nutrition.

Probiotic effects on innate cell defences

Studies in murine models have shown that the cytocidal activity of splenic leucocytes can also be increased following delivery of certain strains of probi-otics. Systemic priming of mice with viable L. casei (Shirota strain) can enhance ex vivo tumoricidal activity of splenic NK cells and macrophages (Kato et al., 1983, 1984) and can also increase cytocidal activity against cytomegalovirus-infected target T-cells (Ohashi et al., 1988). Oral delivery of L. rhamnosus HN001 or L. casei Shirota to mice has also been shown to increase ex vivo NK-cell tumoricidal activity (Gill et al., 2000 Matsuzaki and Chin, 2000). In human studies, feeding of L. rhamnosus (strain HN001) or Bifidobacterium lactis (strain HN019) has been demonstrated to up-regulate peripheral blood NK-cell-mediated cytotoxicity against tumour cells (Chiang et al., 2000 Gill et al., 2001a, b, c Sheih et al., 2001 Table 13.1).

Other viral pathogens

Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a relatively uncommon agent of infectious esophagitis in immunologically normal subjects, but it causes a severe esophagitis in immunocompromised patients, usually accompanied by other signs of systemic dissemination (e.g. pneumonitis, hepatitis, encephalitis).37 The endoscopic appearance ranges from vesicles to necrotic ulcerations. Definite diagnosis requires biopsies both for routine histology (ballooning degeneration, multinucleated giant cells, intranuclear eosinophilic inclusion bodies) and for culture and immunohistochemical staining. The infection is treated with acyclovir or famciclovir foscarnet is used for resistant viruses. In a subject with clinical features consistent with infectious mononucleosis due to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), the occurrence of nausea, dysphagia or hematemesis should raise the possibility of an infectious esophagitis. This however, develops only in a small minority of immunocompetent individuals, whereas in...

Epidemiology and etiology

During the past three decades, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of newly recognized etiological agents of gastroenteritis. Before 1970, a pathogen could be identified in fewer than 10 of patients hospitalized with diarrhea the remaining 90 of cases represented a 'diagnostic void' consisting of various idiopathic, poorly defined conditions. Since 1970, more than 20 different micro-organisms - bacteria, parasites and viruses - have been recognized as etiological agents, and most cases of gastroenteritis are now presumed to have an infectious etiology. Nevertheless, a pathogen is currently identified in only a small proportion of cases. Although numerous viruses have been identified in fecal samples of patients with diarrhea, causal relationships have been determined for relatively few (Table 9.1). Most children are infected with viruses belonging to four distinct families rotaviruses, caliciviruses, astroviruses and enteric adenoviruses. Other viruses, such as the...

Etiology and pathophysiology

Echogenicity Pancreas Ultrasound

Cytomegalovirus Children with AIDS are at higher risk for developing acute pancreatitis. One Italian study in symptomatic HIV-infected children demonstrated pancreatic biochemical abnormalities in 15 of the patients.20 However, the elevated enzymes did not correlate with clinical evidence of acute pancreatitis. Although an adult autopsy series showed pancreatic lesions in about 30 of AIDS patients, fewer than 10 had clinical symptoms.21 In children with HIV at autopsy, pancreatic involvement, defined as edema, inflammation, fibrosis, inspissated material and enlarged Langerhan's islets, was frequent.22 However, tumors and involvement of opportunistic infectious was rare. HIV-positive patients can develop elevated enzymes, owing to the HIV infection itself, or owing to other co-infections, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV), Toxoplasma, mycobacte-ria and Cryptosporidium.17 Many of the pharmacological agents used to inhibit HIV can cause pancreatitis (see Medications). Hyperamylasemia...

Disorders of the enteric nervous system

Functional obstructive episodes have also been observed with a variety of other infectious agents, including acute Lyme disease and the neurotrophic viruses from the herpes virus family, including cytomegalovirus, varicella zoster virus, Epstein-Barr virus and herpes simplex virus type

AA Concentrations in Serum and Muscle mmoldl

On bone growth also may be related to its ability to enhance calcium absorption and renal conservation, as well as to its participation in the cross-linking process of bone collagen formation.35-37 Additionally, lysine competes with the AA ARG for tissue uptake, which provides some of the basis for its clinical applications in the treatment and prevention of recurrent herpes simplex infections.38

Enteric infections in HIVinfected children

Parvum and cytomegalovirus (CMV) these usually cause oropharyngeal lesions and invasive lesions elsewhere in the gut or persistent diarrhea. Additional pathogens, which occasionally cause diarrhea or other symptoms in children with symptomatic HIV disease, may include herpes simplex virus and Mycobacterium avium intracellulare. Mycobacterium tuberculosis may be isolated from stools in both adults and children with no evidence of pulmonary TB. Perhaps surprisingly, there is little to suggest any association between shigellosis and HIV. One study from North America described an increase in prevalence in HIV-infected homosexuals however, numerous reports from the African continent do not support this finding. It may be that the virulence of Shigella readily overcomes even the intact mucosal defense system and so the immunocom-promised individual is not at any greater risk. Another possibility is that because Shigella must be taken up by enteric immune cells in order to be invasive, an...

Diet HSV

See the recommendations on pages 196 for maintaining the strength of the immune system. The dietary ratio of two amino acids may influence herpes infections. High intakes of arginine promote growth of the virus (the herpes virus requires arginine for growth), while higher intakes of lysine may inhibit growth,18 mainly by reducing the amount of arginine available to the virus. Therefore, a ly-sine-rich, arginine-poor diet can help reduce recurrence and severity of herpes infections. Foods that have a particularly high ratio of ar-ginine lysine should be avoided by individuals with recurrent herpes. These include


Because depression of immunity accompanies aging (especially cell-mediated immunity responsible for protection from viruses, bacteria and other nasties), the elderly also are more likely to experience reactivation of quiescent tuberculosis and herpes zoster, and have a reduced response to vaccination.513


Ings in HIV-infected children.39,52 Protein maldigestion and malabsorption are seen in children with severe carbohydrate malabsorption and indicate a profound disruption of normal gastrointestinal function and absorptive capacity. Enteric cytomegalovirus or bacterial infections, and occasionally intestinal Kaposi's sarcoma, may present in adults as a protein-losing enteropathy.53,54 In children, protein-losing enteropathy, suggested by increased fecal a antitrypsin, has also been reported, but specific enteric pathogens were not identified.39 Iron malabsorption has been reported in children with symptomatic HIV with decreased D-xylose absorption, suggesting a general loss of absorptive capacity rather than a specific iron transport defect.55 Vitamin A is absorbed even in the presence of severe diarrhea 56 health-care personnel should aim, therefore, to provide vitamin A supplements, according to the WHO UNICEF Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses protocol, to all children...

Viral infections

Hsv Esophageal Ulcers

HSV esophagitis usually presents with a sudden onset of severe odynophagia, with inability to swallow liquids or solids. Herpes labialis and herpetic oropharyngeal ulcers can occur during the esophageal infection, whereas skin lesions are rarely present.20 Although HSV esophagitis has a spontaneous resolution in a normal host, antiviral therapy is commonly used both in immunocompetent and immunocompromised subjects. Several uncontrolled trials and clinical experience indicate the efficacy of acyclovir, a nucleoside analog, for the treatment of HSV esophagitis.25 Parenteral acyclovir should be initiated until the patient can be converted to oral therapy (when dysphagia or odynophagia is resolved). Generally, patients are treated with acyclovir for 7-10 days. Because resistance to acyclovir has been reported, therapy with foscarnet should be considered in case of clinical failure with acyclovir.25 Acyclovir is efficacious in prophylaxis for patients undergoing transplantation and those...

Deplete DHA

John Martin discovered that the polio vaccine was also contaminated with another green monkey virus called cytomegalovirus. The unusual thing about this virus is that it has become fused with another virus found in humans, producing a hybrid with very dangerous properties. It seems that when animals were infected with this virus they lacked the usual inflammatory immune response normally seen with viral invasions. Dr. Martin labeled this a stealth virus, for its ability to evade the immune system. There is also question as to contamination of these vaccines with another pathogenic virus linked to multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome, called the human herpes virus-6 or HHV-6. There is even serious question as to HHV-6 being the major culprit in the AIDS syndrome, with HIV merely being a secondary invader.

Dr Hyla Cass

A large number of patients who come to see me have thyroiditis. I really can't emphasize it enough because this can lead to the mixed infection syndrome that we see so much of parasites, candida, and even the viral syndromes--the Epstein Barr virus and the cytomegalovirus.

Causes of Cancer

Several infectious agents have also been implicated in cancer. Evidence suggests that chronic viral infections are associated with up to one-fifth of all cancers. These include hepatitis B virus (HBV), which can lead to cancer of the liver the Epstein-Barr virus, a type of herpes virus that causes infectious mononucleosis and has been associated with Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, and nasopharyngeal cancer the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which is associated with an increased risk of developing several cancers, especially Kaposi's sarcoma and non-Hodgkin's


HIV infection increases energy needs due to an increase in REE, as previously stated. This increased REE coupled with HIV-related infections and complications, such as anorexia, place HIV-infected pregnant women at greater nutritional risk than the uninfected woman 23, 24 . Current energy recommendations for HIV-infected pregnant and lactating women are an increase of 10 over baseline energy needs during the asymptomatic phase and an increase of 20-30 over baseline energy needs during the symptomatic phase 25 . Early symptomatic HIV infection is defined as the stage of viral infection caused by HIV when symptoms have begun, but before the development of AIDS. Symptoms may include but are not limited to mouth disorders (oral hairy leukoplakia, oral thrush, gingivitis), prolonged diarrhea, swollen lymph glands, prolonged fever, malaise, weight loss, bacterial pneumonia, joint pain, and recurrent herpes zoster. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends an intake of an...
