The interplay between the host and HSV-1 infection

Edited by Chunfu Zheng

This article collection, published in Virology Journal, is to help us not only improve our knowledge of virus-host interactions but also develop novel antiviral approaches and vaccines against Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection. HSV-1 is a typical human-restricted pathogen, which is carried by 50-90% of the population worldwide, with higher frequencies in developing countries. HSV-1 is well known for its ability to establish a lifelong latent infection in neurons and trigger reactivation and lytic infection, mainly in epithelial or mucosal cells.

Although HSV-1 was identified over 100 years ago, the battle between HSV-1 and the host continues, as there is no vaccine yet available, and HSV-1 is still one of the major infectious diseases worldwide.

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Guest Editors declare no competing interests.
