Herpes virus monoclonal antibodies

Herpes simplex viruses (HSV) types 1 and 2 cause both oral and genital infections. The resulting skin blisters are painful and can last two or more weeks before healing. These viruses lay dormant in nerve cells and can reactivate, causing a return of blisters. Infection lasts a lifetime and currently there is no cure.

The viruses produce a number of diagnostically significant antigens including glycoproteins D and G. ViroStat has just released new Monoclonal Antibodies to HSV glycoproteins D and G. These are useful tools for developing rapid assays to detect these viral antigens. 

Data sheets on these new antibodies are available on the ViroStat website.
