Review Article
Possible Role of Human Herpesvirus 6 as a Trigger of Autoimmune Disease

In the recent years, several reports have provided important information linking HHV-6A/B to autoimmune diseases (AD) including multiple sclerosis [1–7], autoimmune connective tissue diseases [8–11], and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis [12]. In addition, it has been suggested that HHV-6A/B infection might be related to the onset of autoimmune disorders, including Sjogren’s syndrome [13], purpura fulminans, severe autoimmune acquired protein S deficiency [14], severe and acute autoimmune hepatitis [15, 16], and autoimmune hemolytic anemia/neutropenia [17]

Contaminomics: Why Some Microbiome Studies May Be Wrong

 "Contamination can also waste valuable time and money and, when it applies to medical research, create false hope for patients. The most egregious recent example involved a virus called XMRV, which was touted as a possible cause of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), after a 2009 paper identified it in samples from CFS patients. After a long saga involving much follow-up work, allegations of misconduct, the retraction of the original paper, and much angst for patients, it is now clear that XMRV was a contaminant."

European Journal of Heart Failure,  Clinical Article


Kühl U, et al. – Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV–6) A and B are two betaherpesviruses that are associated with many conditions including roseola, drug–induced hypersensitivity syndrome, limbic encephalitis, and myocarditis. The data suggest that virus replication in cardiac tissue of ciHHV–6 heart failure patients suggests that ciHHV–6 reactivation causes persistence of unexplained heart failure symptoms. The authors demonstrated that antiviral treatment, effective in decreasing viral transcripts and clinical complaints of cardiomyopathies, is a new therapeutic option for ciHHV–6–associated diseases.
