Abstract

There are presently seven known and characterized human herpesviruses: herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), HSV-2, cytomegalovirus (CMV), varicella zoster virus (VZV), Epstein—Barr virus (EBV), human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6), and HHV-7. Recently, another human herpesvirus has been linked to Kaposi’s sarcoma and designated HHV-8; studies are still under way to characterize this virus.
