Scientists found a way to treat herpes

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Specialists at Harvard Medical School have developed the world’s first herpes treatment technology.

Scientists conducted an experiment on infected human cells. As a result, physicians destroyed both active viruses and their sleeping copies.

Before this development, herpes was considered incurable, since it was considered impossible to completely rid the body of viruses. Thus, they remained in the body throughout life, only symptoms were overcome.

A connection between the incidence of herpes and the development of multiple sclerosis has been sought since the 90s of the last century. But research has been controversial for many years.

In addition, the virus itself has two varieties – HHV6A and HHV6B. For a long time, science was not able to distinguish between types of infection.
