A quantitative real-time PCR assay was developed for the determination of antiviral drug susceptibility and growth kinetics of human herpesvirus 6. The susceptibility and fitness of a sensitive strain, HST, and its ganciclovir-resistant derivative, GCVR1, were then characterized, leading us to conclude that the mutations of this latter virus did not alter its fitness significantly
