Relative contribution of the different HSV-1 modes of transmission to HSV-1 incidence in the US. a Projected contribution to HSV-1 oral herpes incidence of oral-to-oral transmission versus genital-to-oral (through oral sex) transmission. b Projected contribution to HSV-1 genital herpes incidence of oral-to-genital (through oral sex) transmission versus genital-to-genital (through sexual intercourse) transmission. c New HSV-1 oral herpes acquisitions by mode of transmission versus age in 2050. d New HSV-1 genital herpes acquisitions by mode of transmission versus age in 2050. HSV-1 oral herpes is defined as any HSV-1 infection acquired orally, regardless of the presence or absence of disease or clinical manifestations. HSV-1 genital herpes is defined as any HSV-1 infection acquired genitally, regardless of the presence or absence of disease or clinical manifestations
