Which neonatal herpes strains are most prevalent?
Neonatal herpes is a virus that can cause life-threatening infections.
The most common neonatal HSV type is HSV-2, which causes moderate to severe skin lesions.
HSV3 causes serious outbreaks of skin lesions and death, including in babies.
HSF is the most common HSV strain in newborns.
The new study found that neonatal neonates who were infected with neonatal and adult HSV types were more likely to be infected with HSV1, which is the virus that causes neonatal genital herpes.
Neonatal HS1 is the dominant HSV variant.
Neonates with HS1 were three times more likely than neonates with other HSV variants to have the common neonate herpes, the study found.
The researchers also found that more than 90 percent of newborns who were tested for neonatal symptoms of HSV infection were positive for HSV.
This is likely because neonates carry a virus present in their bloodstream that is able to cause symptoms in newborn infants.
