I'm looking for latest research on neonatal infection of herpes simplex
virus.  My wife is 30+ weeks pregnant, has had recurrent outbreaks for
over 10 years.  i am also HSV positive but have nowhere near the frequency
of outbreaks.  I have read the seminal article neonatal HSV by Prober et
al.  in the New England Journal of M dated 1987 #316 pages 240-244.  Does
anyone know what the latest info on this topic is.  She/we would like to
avoid a C-section if possible.  The Prober et al. article is very
encouraging but I haven't seen any subsequent research.  Any info on this
would be appreciated.
