Chronic infection with hepatitis and herpes viruses in patients with Sjogren's disease

The prevalence of hepatites B, C, E, and G viruses, Epstein-Barr virus, and type 6 herpesvirus was studied in Russian and Norwegian patients with Sjogren's disease. The incidence of HBV, HCV, HEV, and HGV markers in Russian patients was higher than in donors. The incidence of serological markers of Epstein-Barr and type 6 herpesvirus was virtually the same in the patients with Sjogren's disease and donors. Epstein-Barr virus DNA was less frequently detected in patients with Sjogren's disease than in donors, as was shown by blood and salivary DNA testing.
