Western blot assays have been described for detecting antibodies to herpes simplex virus (HSV). A predominance of antibody binding to either the HSV-1 or the HSV-2-containing blot has been reported to indicate infection with HSV-1 or HSV-2, respectively. By densitometry, differential binding of total antibody on HSV-1 versus HSV-2 strips can be expressed as a ratio. To determine the clinical correlation of these ratios, sera from 81 patients with culture-proven oral or genital herpes were… CONTINUE READING
