Abstract

This seminar referred to latent herpes virus infections in veterinary medicine, with emphasis on the domestic animals. It was the first occasion on which scientists from different countries and faculties investigating herpes virus latency had the opportunity to present and exchange their latest results. The establishment, maintenance, and reactivation of latency were discussed including considerations of the virology, pathology, pathogenesis, immunology and molecular biology of the diseases. Comparisons could be made between the results obtained with herpes viruses which are usually not investigated in their natural host, e.g. herpes simplex virus, and herpes viruses which allow experiments in their natural host. In this respect, veterinary medicine has the edge on human medicine. The seminar comprehensively reflected the present state of research on herpes virus latency and revealed some future trends and perspectives.
