To be honest with you, I really think that you won’t see kissing the same way, after reading this article. Yes, and you will be shocked when you find out that the female infertility has been linked to a virus found in the human saliva.
Here’s what you need to know – two famous experts and researchers, Professor Dario Di Luca of the Department of Medical Sciences and Professor Roberto Marci Department of Morphology, Surgery and Experimental Medicine at the University of Ferrara (Italy), conducted a study, which was published in the prestigious scientific journal PLOS ONE.
Roberta Rizzo was the coordinator of this amazing research. Robertasaid that the experts have found evidence that the response of the immune system to the virus HHV-6A may contribute to making the uterus less hospitable to a fertilized egg. Women with HHV-6A, while not showing any obvious sign of infection, have significant alterations in uterine secretions of cytokines, molecules that are important in preparing the intrauterine environment for fertilized egg.
You should also know that this scientific study is also very important, from a virologic point of view. In fact, the HHV-6 includes two viral species and HHV-6B causes roseola (a pediatric disease) and is extremely widespread in the human population. HHV-6A is much rare, and it is not yet clear what its role is in causing diseases. The hypothesis that HHV-6A is associated with female infertility opens the way to possible new clinical treatment applications.
The experts say that this harmful virus was discovered back in 1986. Two years later, the researchers have discovered that this virus can cause roseola in children (otherwise known as a three-day fever), a disease that goes away spontaneously after 3-4 days. In adults, it does not cause any symptoms, although elevated levels were found in patients with multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome. The virus is also a problem in people with weakened immune systems.
Note: there aren’t any medications or drugs that can help you treat this virus, but you should know that it’s related to the cytomegalovirus (also known as HHV-5, human herpesvirus 5) virus. Drugs against the latter are used for infections caused by HHV-6 in patients with weakened immune systems.
