“…Using IFA, HHV-8 antibodies were found in 16/16 French KS patients but in only 3/83 patients with non-KS dermatologic diseases and in 2/100 healthy controls 39 . Likewise, only 5/ 169 (3%) of HIV negative patients from Honduras were found to be HHV-8 positive when using a cutoff point of 1:40 40 .…”

“…It could well be that the patients from Texas have a similar heritage and that there is no cause and effect between HHV-8 and pemphigus, but both have a high frequency in this unique population that traces its origin to the Mediterranean basin. Other investigators have failed to identify an association between KSHV infection and pemphigus (20,45,81,83). …”

“…Latency is characterized by the expression of a small subset of viral genes (12,25,26,43). The latency-associated nuclear antigen (LANA) has been detected in almost all KSHV-infected cells by immunofluorescence and is characterized by a punctate nuclear pattern (13,24,34,41,43). cDNA library screening with serum from a human herpesvirus 8-positive patient identified LANA as the product of viral gene open reading frame 73 (ORF73) (25,26,43).…”
