Viral reactivation a likely link between stress and heart disease

Viral reactivation a likely link between stress and heart disease

Jan. 22, 2013 — A new study could provide the link that scientists have been looking for to confirm that reactivation of a latent herpes virus is a cause of some heart problems. Looking at blood samples from 299 heart patients, researchers at Ohio State University found that those who had suffered a heart attack were the most likely to have inflammatory proteins circulating in their blood compared to patients with less acute symptoms Continue reading
