Herpes simplex virus (HSV)-specific immunoglobulin A, immunoglobulin G, and secretory-component-containing immunoglobulins were identified in cervical and salivary secretions from six subjects with oral HSV type 1 (HSV-1) infections. Anamnestic cervical and salivary antibody responses were detected in two HSV-1-seropositive women with newly acquired genital HSV-2 infections. These data implicate the common mucosal immune system in antibody responses to HSV.
