Angeloni, Antonio and Masala, Maria Vittoria and Montesu, Maria Antonia and Santarelli, Roberta and Satta, Rosanna Rita and Ceccherini Nelli, Luca and Valdivieso, Paola and Faggioni, Alberto and Cottoni, Francesca Maria Giovanna (2006) Environmental factors influence the rate of human herpesvirus type 8 infection in a population with high incidence of classic Kaposi sarcoma. Clinical Infectious Diseases, Vol. 42 (7), p. 66-68. eISSN 1537-6591. Article.
High prevalence of human herpesvirus type 8 (HHV-8) infection has been reported on the island of Sardinia. Among emigrants from Sardinia, rates of HHV-8 infection are lower than they are in Sardinia and are similar to those observed in the local population. Thus, environmental factors seem to play a relevant role in affecting the prevalence of HHV-8 infection.
