Washington: A 3D herpes infection model has been developed – raising hope for development of effective treatments of the viral infection. Active ingredients and new treatments can be reliably tested with this new model and animal tests could soon be a thing of the past. “About 90 percent of the world’s population carry it in them all their lives, once infected, and become sick again in stress situations,” Anke Burger-Kentischer of the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB in Stuttgart, said.
Just like in the human nerve cells, the particles of the virus itself cannot be seen; only the presence of its DNA can be proven by means of a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) analysis,” Burger-Kentischer added. ANI
