It's time to change the name of HHV-6 to AIDS Spectrum Virus 1 (ASV-1).

It's time to recognize that HHV-6A, HHV-6B, HHV-7 and HHV-8 all belong in a viral category of their own. Leaving them in the herpesvirus family trivializes their impact on public health and turns them into some kind of biomedical joke.

Here are the proposed new names for HHV-6A, HHV-6B, HHV-7 and HHV-8:

The AIDS Spectrum Viruses

HHV-6A should be called AIDS Spectrum Virus 1 (ARV-1)

HHV-6B should be called AIDS Spectrum Virus 2 (ARV-2)

HHV-7 should be called AIDS Spectrum Virus 3 (ARV-3)

HHV-8 should be called AIDS Spectrum Virus 4 (ARV-4)

 The name of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome should be changed to AIDS Spectrum Virus Syndrome 
(AIDS Virus Syndrome or ASVS.)
