  • Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy

    PML; John Cunningham virus; JCV Berger JR, Nath A. Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and slow virus infections of the central nervous system.[nlm.nih.gov] Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and slow virus infections of the central nervous system. In: Goldman L, Schafer AI, eds. Goldman's Cecil Medicine. 25th ed.[ufhealth.org]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Autosomal dominant inheritance seems probable, but infection with a slow virus may play a role in the pathogenesis.[whonamedit.com] Some scientists believe that an unusual "slow virus" or another organism causes CJD, but they have not yet isolated a specific virus or organism in people with the disease[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • Kuru

    Later studies showed the slow virus hypothesis to be a misinterpretation as well.[cs.mcgill.ca] (For the discovery of the first human “slow virus”—a new cause of human disease—he was awarded the 1976 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine.)[press.jhu.edu] It was once thought to be due to a slow virus, but it is now believed to be caused by a tiny protein particle called a prion.[webmd.com]

  • Subacute Adenoviral Encephalitis

    In other forms of encephalitis slowing is more diffuse.[slideplayer.com] Examples include measles virus (subacute sclerosing panencephalitis) and Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (West African sleeping sickness).[clinicaladvisor.com] […] encephalitis because periodic spikes and slow waves often localize to the infected temporal lobe.[slideplayer.com]

  • Tropical Spastic Paraparesis

    Tropical spastic paraparesis (TSP) or human T-cell leukemia virus-type 1 (HTLV-I)-associated myelopathy is caused by human T-lymphotropic virus type 1.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract In previous studies of human T-lymphotropic virus type 1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP), areas of slow blood flow in the spinal cord[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is a slow, progressive spastic paraparesis with significant morbidity and causing profound repercussions on quality of life.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchitis

    Complete elimination of cigarette smoking is essential and has been proven to slow the rate of decline in pulmonary function that occurs over time.[encyclopedia.com] […] chronic bronchitis includes general measures such as patient education, smoking cessation, improved nutrition, exercise, and immunization against infection by influenza virus[encyclopedia.com]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Complete elimination of cigarette smoking is essential and has been proven to slow the rate of decline in pulmonary function that occurs over time.[encyclopedia.com] […] chronic bronchitis includes general measures such as patient education, smoking cessation, improved nutrition, exercise, and immunization against infection by influenza virus[encyclopedia.com]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    On the other hand, B12 has been shown to slow down the replication of the hepatitis C virus.[dietvsdisease.org]

  • Adenovirus Infection

    […] and steadily working process of spontaneous release of virus into the medium.[link.springer.com] Some other possible causes, like impurities in the inoculum or slow and asynchronous early stages of infection, have been ruled out by appropriate experiments.[link.springer.com] The data suggest that the long duration of the “incubation period” is fully explained by a burst size of 200, a cycle length of 40 to 48 hours and the assumption of a slow[link.springer.com]

  • Sexually Transmitted Disease

    After these symptoms subside, the virus persists in a “stealth mode” and causes slow damage to the immune system.[historyofvaccines.org] […] immunodeficiency virus continues Daily chart: HIV’s slow retrenchment May 31st 2016, 4:30 from Graphic detail blog Death and money: Looking up May 12th 2016, 2:56 from Print[economist.com] For hepatitis B, immune system modulators (interferon) and antiviral medications can help to fight the virus and slow damage to the liver.[web.archive.org]
