Study: Latent Viruses Change Cells in the Human Body; the Study Supports the Link between Latent Viruses and Disease
Date:12/8/2013

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) December 08, 2013

The CBCD believes that those scientists, who view latent viruses as harmless, are wrong. One can find an example of such a view in a study published as recent as 2012 in the journal of Medical Microbiology and Immunology. Researchers wrote that the Human Cytomegalovirus (CMV), “stays for the lifetime of the host in a non-infectious, replicatively dormant state known as 'viral latency' (2).” Notice that the researchers equate ‘dormancy’ with ‘latency.’ Even the CDC considers the two as one and the same. On its website published on May 16. 2006, the CDC stated that “EBV remains dormant or latent in a few cells…” (2). Note that the website uses the word ‘or’, meaning according to the CDC, ‘dormant’ and ‘latent’ are interchangeable.

This is a misconception.

There is much research, which shows that latent viruses are not dormant. In fact, as a new study found, “…advances in techniques to study global changes in gene expression have begun to show that HCMV latency is a highly active process which involves expression of specific latency-associated viral gene products which orchestrate major changes in the latently infected cell (1).” In addition, “as techniques for studying HCMV at a molecular level have become increasingly powerful, it is now emerging that latent HCMV infection profoundly modulates the latently infected cell and the surrounding cellular environment (1).”

In particular, researchers wrote that all of the herpes viruses, which are responsible for much of the viral disease burden in humans, affect the body while latent. Research shows the existence of “a common unifying theme in the biology of herpesvirus latency and reactivation (1).”

Thus, all herpes viruses, including the Human Cytomegalovirus (CMV), oral herpes (HSV-1), genital herpes (HSV-2), and the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), have a similar impact on the body, specifically during latency
