This company has launched a new educational Web site at www.herpeselect.com The site provides information about genital herpes and diagnostic testing for herpes simplex virus (HSV).
This information is organized to answer questions that may arise from three major audiences: patients who inquire about being tested; healthcare providers who order the test; and laboratories who perform the testing. Healthcare professionals address questions relevant to each audience. A nurse practitioner addresses patient questions; an infectious disease physician informs healthcare providers and a PhD virologist discusses laboratory questions.
The site includes links to other herpes-related sites sponsored by professional organizations and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (CDC).
