There is a growing appreciation of the importance of T cell costimulation at inflammatory sites. Here, we briefly review the literature on the subject, and describe recent pertinent findings in our model of herpes simplex keratitis.

    Herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1 keratitis (HSK) is a sight-threatening ocular infection with worldwide occurrence. A prompt laboratory diagnosis is often very useful. The purpose of this study was to evaluate molecular methods as rapid diagnostic tools compared with cell culture of HSK. Corneal...

    The human T-cell leukemia virus type I Tax protein (HTLV-I Tax) is known as a trans-activating factor for a variety of genes, including those of cytokines. Here, we show that Tax is capable of activating the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (HSV-TK) promoter in certain mammalian cell lines....

    Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is a neurotropic double-stranded DNA virus that causes cold sores, keratitis, and rarely encephalitis in humans. Nonpathogenic HSV-1 gene transfer vectors have been generated by elimination of viral functions necessary for replication. The life cycle of the...

    The prevalence and molecular characteristics of isolates from 173 immunocompetent patients with herpetic keratitis (HK) who were infected with acyclovir (ACV)-resistant(ACVR) corneal herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1 was determined. Isolates from 11 (6.4%) of the patients were ACVR, and 9 of these 11...
