Confirmation now comes from a study conducted on experimental animals by Italian researchers, with Dr. Giovanna De Chiara of the National Research Council in Rome as the first name.

A model of recurrent herpes simplex virus 1 infections in mice that were subjected to repeated cycles of viral reactivation was used in this study. In the course of the study, a spread of the herpes simplex virus 1 also in different brain areas that resulted in the appearance in the brains of animals of some typical features of Alzheimer’s disease, including, most importantly, the protein-beta amyloid constantly present in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease. According to the authors, in mice infected with herpes simplex virus 1 The progressive accumulation of typical molecular changes in certain brain areas, including the cortex and hippocampus, correlates with the appearance and increase of cognitive deficits which become irreversible after seven cycles of virus reactivation. The authors conclude that repeated herpes simplex 1 infections could be considered as a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.
