Abstract

The 9th International Conference on Human herpesviruses 6 and 7 (HHV-6A, HHV-6B, and HHV-7) was held at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts from November 9 to 11, 2015. Important new information was presented regarding: the biology of these viruses, particularly HHV-6A and HHV-6B; the biology and epidemiology of inherited chromosomally integrated HHV-6A/B; improved diagnostic tests; animal models for studying HHV-6 and HHV-7, and animal viruses with similarities to HHV-6 and HHV-7; established and possible disease associations; and new approaches to treatment. Here, we summarize work of particular interest. J. Med. Virol. 88:2038-2043, 2016. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
