Iron metabolism markers and haptoglobin phenotypes in susceptibility to HSV-1 or/and HSV-2 lesion relapses.


Different haptoglobin (Hp) phenotypes play a role in several pathologic processes including infectious diseases. In order to evaluate the role of iron storage and metabolism in susceptibility to herpetic manifestations, we studied the frequency of the Hp phenotypes and iron metabolism in patients affected by H. Simplex virus 1 or 2 (HSV-1 or HSV-2… (More)
