ELVIS® HSV was developed using a transgenic baby hamster kidney-21 cell line.In this cell line, HSV infection causes the expression of a beta-galactosidase “reporter gene”, and it is the expression of this gene that can be used to monitor infection by HSV.Deaths were classified as HSV-related if certificates listed (1) any HSV ICD-9/ICD-10 codes for deaths ≤42 days of age, (2) any HSV ICD-9/ICD-10 codes and an ICD code for perinatal infection for deaths at 43 to 365 days of age, or (3) an ICD-10 code for congenital HSV.CS- and HIV-related deaths were those listing any ICD code for syphilis or HIV.All occurred from January 1, 1981, through December 31, 2013, in NYC.Stillbirths were defined as fetal deaths occurring after the 20th week of gestational age in which no evidence of life was detected after birth.International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9), codes were used to assign cause of death until 1999, after which International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10), codes were used.We identified certificates of stillbirth and death for infants Maternal race/ethnicity was classified as white non-Hispanic (NH), black NH, Hispanic, Asian, and other and unknown.
There were no CS-related deaths after 1996, and only 1 HIV-related infant death after 2004.
Neonatal infection with herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 (HSV-1) or HSV type 2 (HSV-2) causes serious illness with potentially devastating consequences, often resulting in death or long-term disability.
The incidence of neonatal HSV in the United States has been noted to be similar to the incidence of perinatal HIV infection before the routine use of antiretroviral medications in pregnancy and greater than that of congenital syphilis (CS) in nonepidemic years.
