Pilot study of antibodies against varicella zoster virus and human immunodeficiency virus in relation to the risk of developing stroke, nested within a rural cohort in Uganda
The risk of stroke rises after episodes of herpes zoster and chickenpox, which are caused by varicella zoster virus (VZV). We conducted a pilot case–control study of stroke, nested within a long‐standing cohort in Uganda (the General Population Cohort), to examine antibodies against VZV prior to diagnosis.
