Effect of cytomegalovirus reactivation on the time course of systemic host response biomarkers in previously immunocompetent critically ill patients with sepsis: a matched cohort study
The authors of this journal article state thatcytomegalovirus (CMV) reactivation in previously immunocompetent critically ill patients is associated with increased mortality, which has been hypothesized to result from virus-induced immunomodulation. They studied the effects of CMV reactivation on the temporal course of host response biomarkers in patients with sepsis. CMV reactivation was not independently associated with changes in the temporal trends of host response biomarkers in comparison with non-reactivating patients. They therefore conclude that these markers should not be used as surrogate clinical endpoints for i...

Scientists learn how common virus reactivates after transplantation
(Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center) A new study in Science challenges long-held theories of why a common virus -- cytomegalovirus, or CMV -- can reactivate and become a life-threatening infection in people with a compromised immune system, including blood cancer patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation.

Strain-specific antibody therapy prevents cytomegalovirus reactivation after transplantation
Cytomegalovirus infection is a frequent and life-threatening complication that significantly limits positive transplantation outcomes. We developed preclinical mouse models of cytomegalovirus reactivation after transplantation and found that humoral immunity is essential for preventing viral recrudescence. Preexisting antiviral antibodies decreased after transplant in the presence of graft-versus-host disease and were not replaced, owing to poor reconstitution of donor B cells and elimination of recipient plasma cells. Viral reactivation was prevented by the transfer of immune serum, without a need to identify and target s...

(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) NIAID scientists studying herpes simplex virus infection have unexpectedly found that inhibiting a cellular enzyme complex, EZH2/1, suppresses viral infection. The researchers then demonstrated that EZH2/1 inhibitors also enhanced the cellular antiviral response in cultured cells and mice. They then showed that EZH2/1 inhibitors suppressed HSV infection, spread, and reactivation in mice and, in cell culture, suppressed human cytomegalovirus, adenovirus, and Zika virus infections. They suggest that EZH2/1 inhibitors have considerable potential as broad-spectrum ant...

Atomic structure of the human cytomegalovirus capsid with its securing tegument layer of pp150
Herpesviruses possess a genome-pressurized capsid. The 235-kilobase genome of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is by far the largest of any herpesvirus, yet it has been unclear how its capsid, which is similar in size to those of other herpesviruses, is stabilized. Here we report a HCMV atomic structure consisting of the herpesvirus-conserved capsid proteins MCP, Tri1, Tri2, and SCP and the HCMV-specific tegument protein pp150—totaling ~4000 molecules and 62 different conformers. MCPs manifest as a complex of insertions around a bacteriophage HK97 gp5–like domain, which gives rise to three classes of capsid floor&n...

Panuveitis involves all 3 compartments. Duration can also be used to classify uveitis. Acute is 6 weeks and> 3 months is chronic persistent uveitis. Episodic periods of inactivity and reactivity that last more than 3 months are called recurrent uveitis. A third way to characterize uveitis is if it is granulomatous or not. Uveitis increase...
