Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Genital herpes infections are a major source of morbidity. These infections are responsible for significant health problems, including direct physical discomfort associated with outbreaks, potential complications such as neonatal transmission, and the often devastating psychological effects of a chronic illness. In addition, herpes infections have been identified as a significant co-factor in the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus infection. Accurate and rapid diagnosis and treatment are important steps necessary to minimize these effects.
