    I find this v v interesting. I did an M.Sc project ~10 years ago now looking at betaherpes viral loads in brain tissue using RT qPCR. I only found HHV6A but I didn’t get results published cos due to ME I didn’t get to finish and had to crash out with diploma.

    From what I learnt and have followed since, there is gently building interest in the latent virus’ immune modulatory effects. Plus with modern techniques along side the old “wet lab” type stuff ,advances in systems biology, big data sets in the omics, etc, etc , it’s all building up to some very interesting ideas around.

    HHV6 Foundation and Dr Ablashi and Dr Prusty are all amazing and very impressive I feel.
