“…In our study, we have also noticed a dominance of HHV6-B over HHV6-A, in accordance to the findings presented by Ward (2005). It is interesting to notice that a previous study from our group showed the opposite profile in healthy subjects, in which these agents are often shed without clinical signs (Magalhães et al 2010). Nevertheless, due to the small sample studied, divergences were expected.…”

“…The rate of oral excretion of HHV-6 in the healthy population is low (i.e. about 10%), while oral shedding rates of HHV-7 can vary from 12.6% to 90% depending on the population group [34,37]. HHV-6 and HHV-7 can be observed not only in healthy patients, but also in immunocompromised ones.…”

“…O HHV-6 é o agente etiológico do exantema súbito, enquanto a infecção por HHV-7 é geralmente assintomática (Ward et al, 2005;Pinheiro et al, 2013). A taxa de excreção oral do HHV-6 na população geral é baixa, girando em torno de 10% (Biganzoli et al, 2010;Magalhães et al, 2010). As taxas de excreção oral de HHV-7 são bastante diferentes, variando de 12.6% a 90% (Biganzoli et al, 2010) dependendo da população estudada.…”
