Cold sores treatment & testing in USA
Herpes simplex virus infection (Cold Sores)
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) can cause an infection that appears as small clear fluid blisters in a limited area on the skin or mucous membranes. Colloquially called this the "herpes". There are two types of viruses: type 1 (Cold Sores) is the most common cause of cold sores (herpes labialis) and type 2 is usually the cause of genital herpes (genital herpes).
HSV1 (Cold Sores) is found in blisters around the mouth, and herpes transfers typically from person-to-person by direct skin or mucosal contact, such as by kissing or sexual contact. In rare cases, infections occur from mother to child during birth.
Herpes Cold sores
Herpes Cold Sores (Herpes labialis) is typically represented by sores on the lips. Upper respiratory tract infections, dryness of the lips, strong sunlight and stress are some of the factors that can put an outbreak started.
The first infection with HSV, either type 1 or type 2 is called a primary infection. After searching virus via nerve pathways to the nerve cell, the virus stays for life. Here the virus can lie dormant and undetected for the immune system, known as the latent stage. At the reactivation of the virus can be new fluid bladders, for example in the form of "cold sores". The number and nature of these reactivation are highly variable, but both volume and frequency typically declines with time. More significant reactivation occur in patients with weakened immune systems.
You can not tell the difference between an outbreak caused by a primary infection or reactivation, as both forms may be no visible symptoms, the virus can be excreted from saliva or secretions from the genitals, outside there are blisters or ulcers. Herpes infection is very common and about 80% of the adult US population has antibodies to HSV (Cold Sores). Most individuals with antibodies against type 1 are infected during the first five years of life.

Tell me about the Herpes Test Simplex (HSV-1) Antibody Test.
The HSV-1 Rapid Test Device detects antibodies to HSV-1 through visual interpretation of color development. Recombinant antigens of HSV-1 and anti-human Iantibodies are used to detect the specific antibodies in the human whole blood samples. When a sample is added to the sample well on the test panel, HSV-1 antibodies, if present, will bind to the anti-human conjugated to colored particles on the sample pad. As the specimen migrates along the strip by capillary action and interacts with reagents on the membrane, the complex will be captured by recombinant HSV-1 antigens immobilized at the detection zone. Excess colored particle are captured at the internal control zone.
The presence of a red band in the test region (T) indicates a positive result for the particular antibodies, while its absence indicates a negative result. A red band at the control region (C) serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking is working.
What kind of sample is required?
A simple blood sample collect in the privacy of your home.
What do the Cold Sores HSV1 test results mean?
Herpes HSV-1 Antibodies Present (positive): This means you have a herpes colde sores HSV1 infection, cold sores, which are small and somewhat painful blisters that usually show up on or around a person’s lips,
Herpes colde sores antibodies can take up to ten days to develop after primary infection with the virus. If you believe you have been exposed, but have no symptoms, you should therefore wait at least two weeks before getting tested, you may also want to go for a repeat test after 6 months if you do not undergo regular screening.
Limitations of the test
The HSV-1 Rapid Test Device is for home in vitro diagnostic use, and should only be used for the qualitative detection of antibodies to HSV-1. The color intensity in a positive band should not be evaluated as “quantitative or semi-quantitative”.
Failure to follow the TEST PROCEDURE and RESULT INTERPRETATION may adversely affect test performance and/or invalidate the test result.
Results obtained with this assay, particularly in the case of weak test lines that are difficult to interpret should be used in conjunction with other clinical information available to the physician.
A high dose “hook effect” may occur where the color intensity of test band decreases as the concentration of antibodies increases. If a “hook effect” is suspected, dilution of specimens may increase color intensity of the test band.
Clinical sensitivity and specificity The HSV-1 Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) has been evaluated with specimens obtained from a population of symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. A commercial HSV-1 EIA test was used as comparison. The overall agreement both tests is 90%.
Precision Intra-Assay Within-run precision has been determined by using 10 replicates of negative and positive specimens. The specimens were correctly identified >99% of the time. Inter-Assay Between-run precision has been determined by 10 independent assays on the negative and positive specimens.Three different lots of the HSV-1 Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) have been tested using these specimens. The specimens were correctly identified >99% of the time.
