Abstract
Recent study by Joel Dudley and colleagues published in Neuron on July 11, demonstrated that both HHV-6A and HHV-7 could be key causal contributors to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, among various biological and technical issues, we review how complicate to demonstrate the link of HHV-6A and HHV-7 infection with AD in current situation, and highlight the potential open research directions of follow-up studies in the future.
