In an attempt to study the frequency and distribution of human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) infection both in normal and neoplastic brain tissues in vivo, polymerase chain reaction was used to look for HHV-6 genomes: 1) in samples, obtained at necropsy, from different regions of the brain of immunocompetent adult subjects and of patients who died of AIDS; 2) in the surgical biopsies of a well-characterized series of primary brain tumors of neuroglial origin. HHV-6-specific sequences were identified in… CONTINUE READING
