herpes family of virus

herpesvirus

2

human herpesvirus also include

herpes simplex (type 1and 2)

varicella-zoster

epstein barr virus

3

Those at the highest risk of developing CMV infection are

fetus and immunocompromised

4

the most common virus transmitted to the fetus is

cytomegalovirus s

5

Peripheral blood leukocytes and transplanted tissues are strongly incriminated as sources o

cmv

6

Transmission of CMV is by

transfusion of blood, blood components containing white blood cells has been assuming increased importance in patients with severely impaired immunity who require supportive therapy

7

A fourfold rise in IgG antibody titer suggest but does not prove

recent CMV infection

8

the presence of IgG antibody in infant complicates the interpretation of serologic results during the first

6 months of life because the antibody may be maternal in origin

9

the preferred method for diagnosis of CMV infection is

culture or PCR

10

Three types of CMV infections are possible

in blood transfusions recipients

primary infection

reactivated infection

reinfection

11

the presence of antibodies against immediate

early and early antigens is associated with active infection

primary

reactivated

12

The presence of antibody to early antigen is strongly

associated with viral shedding

13

Antibodies to alte antigens presis in high titer long after the recovery from an active i

infection
