The first thing the researchers discovered was that chemotherapy brought out the virus. Nucleoside analogues are nucleosides which contain a nucleic acid analogue and a sugar. Nucleotide analogs are nucleotides which contain a nucleic acid analogue, a sugar, and a phosphate groups with one to three phosphates.. Nucleoside and nucleotide analogues can be used in therapeutic drugs, include a range of antiviral products used to prevent viral replication in infected cells.

      Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a lifelong virus that is categorized into two distinct herpesvirus species, herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2). HSV-1 is typically transmitted by oral-oral contact to cause oral herpes but can also cause genital herpes through oral-genital contact.   Introduction. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV‐1) causes a variety of infections that involve mucocutaneous surfaces, the central nervous system and, occasionally, visceral organs such as the lung [1, 2].The virus has been reported to be associated with pulmonary disease since [], but until two decades ago, HSV pneumonia was considered to be rare.

      The varicella zoster virus is another herpes virus that follows the pattern of the herpes simplex virus, that is, infection, latency and reactivation; however, the primary infection with the VZV is typically a case of childhood chickenpox. Recurrence of the infection is more localized and is known as herpes zoster, more commonly called shingles.
