Cloud, M.S. For the Nationwide Institute of Allergy and Infectious Illnesses Collaborative Antiviral Research Group: Oral Acyclovir Suppression and Neurodevelopment after Neonatal Herpes The outcomes of neonatal herpes virus disease are reliant on the extent of the disease.1 Approximately 30 percent of babies with disseminated disease die, but only 20 percent of survivors have neurologic sequelae.2 On the other hand, only 6 percent of babies with central nervous program disease die, but approximately 70 percent have long term neurologic impairment.2 Skin, eye, and mouth area disease is not connected with loss of life, and neurologic impairment is rare with this manifestation of neonatal herpes.3 HSV establishes in sensory ganglia latency, with periodic recurrence and reactivation of localized disease.4,5 Whether the virus subclinically reactivates in the mind after neonatal HSV disease is not known.Our data suggest that approximately half the persons presenting with airflow limitation followed the paradigm that implied a rapid decline in FEV1 from a standard level of lung function in early adulthood, whereas the spouse had a rather normal decline in FEV1 but started from a low initial worth of FEV1. We acknowledge that dichotomizing persons with COPD into two specific trajectories, although ideal for understanding the organic history of the condition conceptually, is artificial. Instead, there exists a wide range of individual trajectories, in a way that both low maximally attained lung function in early adulthood and a subsequent quick decline may contribute to COPD.21 In addition, it is possible that a single person over time can have intervals of rapid decline in FEV1 accompanied by periods when the decline is normal or almost normal.
