BACKGROUND In a previous investigation, we found an association between reduced cognitive functioning and the prevalence of antibodies to herpes simplex virus type 1 in individuals with schizophrenia. The current study was undertaken to determine if this association also occurs in individuals with bipolar disorder. METHODS Cognitive functioning and serologic evidence of infection with potentially neurotropic herpesviruses were measured in 117 individuals with bipolar disorder and in 100… Expand

InterventionDrug
Association between cognitive functioning, exposure to Herpes Simplex Virus type 1, and the COMT Val158Met genetic polymorphism in adults without a psychiatric disorder
TLDR
Serological evidence of HSV-1 infection was associated with an 18-fold increased odds of having a severe impairment in this domain of delayed memory and the Val/Val genotype of the COMT Val158Met polymorphism was significantly associated with the RBANS total score and with a moderate decrease in the domain of attention. Expand
Impaired functioning in euthymic patients with bipolar disorder — HSV-1 as a predictor
TLDR
Findings confirm previous findings suggesting that HSV-1 affects cognitive functions in patients with bipolar disorder, which may also result in more impaired functioning, less quality of life and difficulties in social adjustment. Expand
Persistent infection with neurotropic herpes viruses and cognitive impairment
TLDR
Latent/persistent herpes virus infections can be associated with cognitive impairments regardless of other health status, including schizophrenia patients or older community dwellers. Expand
The association between exposure to herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and cognitive functioning in schizophrenia: A meta-analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis was undertaken to determine the relationship of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) exposure and cognitive functioning in schizophrenia and increased understanding of HSV- 1 exposure might lead to improved methods for the prevention and treatment of cognitive deficits in schizophrenia. Expand
Exposure to herpes simplex virus type 1 and cognitive impairments in individuals with schizophrenia.
TLDR
Two cross-sectional studies fulfill several Bradford-Hill criteria, suggesting etiological links between HSV1 exposure and cognitive impairment, and a proof-of-concept double-blind placebo-controlled trial indicated improvement in cognitive performance following supplemental anti-herpes-specific medication among HSV 1 seropositive schizophrenia patients. Expand
Exploring the associations of herpes simplex virus infection and cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia: Studies in India
TLDR
Indian studies are consistent with a causative role for HSV-1 in cognitive dysfunction regardless of SZ diagnosis; more rigorous studies of the causal hypothesis are needed, particularly larger randomized controlled trials. Expand
Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 infection is associated with suicidal behavior and first registered psychiatric diagnosis in a healthy population
TLDR
The finding that HSV-1 was associated with suicidal behavior and first psychiatric disorder indicates that infection may play a role in the etiology and pathogenesis of suicidalbehavior and development of psychiatric disorders. Expand
The catechol O-methyltransferase Val158Met polymorphism and herpes simplex virus type 1 infection are risk factors for cognitive impairment in bipolar disorder: additive gene-environmental effects in a complex human psychiatric disorder.
TLDR
The COMT Val158Val genotype and serological evidence of infection with HSV-1 are independent risk factors for cognitive impairment in individuals with bipolar disorder, particularly in the domains of immediate and delayed memory. Expand
Exposure to herpes simplex virus, type 1 and reduced cognitive function.
TLDR
HSV-1 exposure is associated with reduced cognitive function in specific cognitive domains regardless of SZ diagnostic status, and an 'epidiagnostic' model for the association is proposed to explain the results. Expand
The association among smoking, HSV-1 exposure, and cognitive functioning in schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and non-psychiatric controls
TLDR
While experimental studies show that nicotine transiently improves functioning on sensory gating and attention tasks known to be deficient in schizophrenia, long-term nicotine exposure via smoking appears to have an adverse effect on cognitive functioning. Expand

Association of serum antibodies to herpes simplex virus 1 with cognitive deficits in individuals with schizophrenia.
TLDR
Serologic evidence of herpes simplex virus 1 infection is associated with cognitive impairment in schizophrenia and is an independent predictor of cognitive dysfunction in individuals with schizophrenia. Expand
Cognitive and psychiatric impairment in herpes simplex virus encephalitis suggest involvement of the amygdalo-frontal pathways
TLDR
MRI volumetric measurements in HSVE could be a good indicator of long-term prognosis for behavioural changes related to an amygdala and frontal dysfunction and detection of HSV DNA in the cerebrospinal fluid by polymerase chain reaction. Expand
Neuropsychology of bipolar disorder: a review.
TLDR
The profile of cognitive deficits in BD at different phases of the illness is described to determine whether it is different from that of schizophrenia and unipolar (UP) depression. Expand
Neuropsychology of bipolar disorder
TLDR
This research has demonstrated biases for processing positive and negative stimuli in patients with mania and depression, respectively, and neuroimaging studies of the neural regions that underlie cognitive processing of affective meaning suggest the medial and orbitofrontal prefrontal cortex may be particularly involved. Expand
Neuropsychological function in euthymic patients with bipolar disorder.
TLDR
Findings provide good evidence for the existence of neuropsychological impairment in patients with euthymic bipolar disorder, although the possible effect of medication should not be overlooked. Expand
Cognitive impairment in euthymic bipolar patients with and without prior alcohol dependence. A preliminary study.
TLDR
The findings support the presence of persistent neurocognitive difficulties in patients with long-standing bipolar disorder who are not in the psychiatrically acute state or who are suffering the effects of alcohol abuse and suggest that there may be an aggregate negative effect of lifetime duration of bipolar illness on memory and frontal or executive systems.

TLDR
This case stresses the possibility of herpes simplex encephalitis in patients with an acute mental change with a history of a schizo-affective disorder. Expand

TLDR
Results suggest that outcome is improved with treatment; they provide more support for the use of brain biopsy to diagnose the infection and indicate a need for better therapy. Expand
