OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to investigate the presence of viral DNAs of HSV-1, HSV-2, HHV-6, HHV-8, and CMV in hippocampus of the patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) syndrome. METHODS Pathological specimens were obtained from 33 patients with MTLE undergone temporal lobectomy with amygdalo-hippocampectomy due to intractable seizures. Autopsy materials from the hippocampus of 7 patients without neurological disease were used as controls. The data was also… Expand
Detection of human herpes virus 6B in patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy in West China and the possible association with elevated NF-κB expression
TLDR
This study is the first to find HHV-6B in MTLE patients from West China and demonstrate a possible association between HHV -6B positivity and activation of NF-κB in the development of chronic MTLE. Expand
Presence of human herpes virus 6 DNA exclusively in temporal lobe epilepsy brain tissue of patients with history of encephalitis
TLDR
The data argue against HHV‐6 as a major local pathogenetic factor in MTS hippocampi after CFS, and suggest a potential pathogenetics role of HHv‐6 in TLE patients with a history of encephalitis. Expand
Human Herpes Virus 6 and Epilepsy.
TLDR
A potential role for HHV-6 in the etiology of MTS is supported, with patients with MTS having significantly lower seizure onset age than those with other pathologies and having higher binding in their seizure foci, suggesting inflammation. Expand
Temporal lobe epilepsy associated with human herpes virus 6
Human herpes virus 6 (HHV-6) is a ubiquitous and most common pathogen that affects humans. Human herpes virus 6B (HHV-6B) is a wide spread human herpesvirus that infects most people when they areExpand
Pathogenic Role of Human Herpesvirus 6B Infection in Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy.
TLDR
It is suggested that HHV-6B may play an important role in the pathogenesis of MTS via modification of host gene expression. Expand
Human Herpes Virus 6B in Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
TLDR
A review of the literature shows increased HHV-6B detection in biopsy samples from MTLE patients with febrile seizures in childhood or a history of encephalitis, which may be explained by differences in patient populations, PCR techniques, and tissue preparation. Expand
Human herpes virus 6B: A possible role in epilepsy?
TLDR
If the link between early viral infection, complex or prolonged febrile seizures, and later development of intractable temporal lobe epilepsy is confirmed, new therapeutic approaches to a common intractables epilepsy syndrome may be possible. Expand
The Viral Hypothesis of Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy – Is Human Herpes Virus-6 the Missing Link? A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis indicate an association between HHV-6 DNA and MTLE surgically resected tissue samples, unspecified if A or B or both, which provides a basis for future studies continuing the investigation into pathological implications of HHv-6. Expand
HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 6 A AND 6 B : ASSAY VALIDATION , VIRUS-HOST INTERACTION AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE
Human herpesvirus (HHV)-6A and HHV-6B are two ubiquitous herpesviruses that after primary infection can stay latent in the host. The two viruses can reactivate from latency and cause secondaryExpand
Persistent Infection by HSV-1 Is Associated With Changes in Functional Architecture of iPSC-Derived Neurons and Brain Activation Patterns Underlying Working Memory Performance
TLDR
The lytic/quiescent cycles in iPSC-derived neurons indicate that persistent neuronal infection can occur, altering cellular function and affirm the associations between nonencephalitic HSV-1 infection and functional brain changes linked with working memory impairment. Expand

Detection of human herpesvirus-6 in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy surgical brain resections
TLDR
HHV-6B is present in brain specimens from a subset of patients with MTLE and localized to astrocytes in the absence of inflammation and warrants further investigation into the possible role of HHV- 6 in the development of MTLE. Expand
Presence of human herpesvirus 6 and herpes simplex virus detected by polymerase chain reaction in surgical tissue from temporal lobe epileptic patients
TLDR
Mild encephalitis/meningitis induced by HHV‐6, a condition sometimes not recognized as encephalitic/mensitis, may be one of the most frequent causes of temporal lobe epilepsy. Expand
Presence of herpes simplex DNA in surgical tissue from human epileptic seizure foci detected by polymerase chain reaction: preliminary study.
TLDR
There was a statistically significant difference in the frequency of HSV-positive surgical specimens from monofocal seizure epicenters compared with nonepilepsy control specimens, which suggest an association of the virus with seizure activity. Expand
Human herpesvirus‐6: A survey of presence and distribution of genomic sequences in normal brain and neuroglial tumors
TLDR
Molecular evidence of a wide distribution of HHV‐6 infection in the brain tissues of a high proportion of subjects, both in normal and in impaired immunity is provided, arguing against a major role of this herpesvirus in the pathogenesis of primary brain tumors of neuroglial origin in immunocompetent subjects. Expand
Use of PCR for the diagnosis of herpesvirus infections of the central nervous system.
TLDR
The role of CSF PCR in the diagnosis and therapeutic management of herpesvirus infections of the nervous system, particularly those caused by HSV and VZV is summarized. Expand
Investigating the presence of human herpesvirus 7 and 8 in multiple sclerosis and normal control brain tissue
TLDR
There is little evidence in this particular sample cohort to suggest involvement of eitherHHV-7 or HHV-8 in MS, and the aetiology of which is thought to have a possible viral component. Expand
Human herpesvirus 6 infection in neoplastic and normal brain tissue
TLDR
Seroepidemiological data indicated a frequency distribution of anti‐HHV‐6 antibodies in patients with brain tumors similar to that found in healthy donors. Expand
Chronic encephalitis and epilepsy (Rasmussen's encephalitis)
TLDR
It is suggested that PCR allows detection of viral sequences in some cases of chronic encephalitis associated with epilepsy that may be missed by in situ hybridization. Expand
Presence of human herpesviruses 6, 7, and 8 DNA sequences in normal brain tissue
TLDR
The results provide molecular evidence of the presence of the three newly identified herpesviruses in brain tissue and the pathogenic role for HHV‐7 andHHV‐8, as with HHV-6, in neurological diseases should not be overlooked. Expand
Herpesviruses in brain and Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
Three other herpesviruses are sought in brain of elderly normal subjects and Alzheimer's disease patients: human herpesvirus 6 (HHV6)—types A and B, herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV2) and cytomegalovirus (CMV); HHV6 is present in a much higher proportion of the AD than of age‐matched normal brains, but there is extensive overlap with the presence of HSV1 in AD brains.
