Cytomegalovirus (CMV) (Coming soon)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV), also known as HCMV or Human Herpesvirus 5 (HHV-5), is a member of the Betaherpesvirinae subfamily of Herpesviridae. CMV can aggravate gastrointestinal mucosal illnesses, and staining with Anti-CMV is the best means of diagnosis. The antibody stains immediate early and early protein antigens that are present during CMV infection. Although this staining is generally localized to the nuclei, cytoplasmic and diffuse nuclear staining may be seen in late stage infection. Recent research has found that Anti-CMV does not stain for herpes simplex virus (HSV) or human papilloma virus (HPV).
