Abstract

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) causes varicella upon primary infection and subsequently becomes latent in the sensory ganglia. Reactivation of latent VZV in the sensory ganglion results in herpes zoster, which usually begins with pain and dysesthesia. Pain that persists long after healing of the rash is termed postherpetic neuralgia. VZV inoculation into rats induces mechanical allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia without causing herpes zoster. As with VZV, herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1) is an alphaherpesvirus. HSV1 also becomes latent in the sensory ganglia after primary infection, and reactivation of latent HSV1 in the sensory ganglion results in herpes simplex. HSV1 inoculation into mice causes zoster-like skin lesions together with mechanical allodynia and mechanical hyperalgesia. A marked difference between the two rodent models is whether the herpes virus proliferates in the nervous system after inoculation. VZV-inoculated rats are useful for investigating mechanical allodynia induced by latent infection with herpes virus. HSV1-inoculated mice are useful for investigating mechanical allodynia induced by the proliferation of herpes virus in sensory neurons and for assessing the effects of acute herpetic pain on the incidence of postherpetic allodynia.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 February 2014.
All research outputs
#3,060,549
of 4,507,509 outputs
Outputs from Current topics in behavioral neurosciences
#88
of 126 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#72,670
of 107,083 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current topics in behavioral neurosciences
#6
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,509 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 126 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 107,083 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
