Further research must be performed on the clinical and therapeutic aspects of the VZV disease. Although both the vaccine and systemic antivirals have brought tremendous improvements, the disease persists. Therapy lessens but does not eliminate many of the complications. The disease may manifest in unpredictable patterns in this era of vaccination.

Clinically, the patient was in excellent condition until the development of acute hepatitis during the lamivudine therapy period, 765 days post-OLT. Until this terminal event, serum transaminase activity was only 1-2 times the upper limit of normal with serum bilirubin and prothrombin time within the normal range. Subsequent liver biopsies showed chronic active hepatitis with no signs of fibrosis. The post-mortem biopsy showed severe acute hepatitis B with massive necrosis. The HBV polymerase gene was sequenced during HBIg, famciclovir and lamivudine treatment. One mutation I533L was detected during HBIg treatment. No amino acid changes were selected during famciclovir treatment. Three amino acid changes were selected while the patient was on lamivudine treatment, which include L533I, S559T and M550I.

Hepatitis B constitutes a serious public health problem. It has been estimated that 350 million people--approximately 5% of the world population--have been infected by this virus. Of the people infected, in 90% to 95% of them there will be a spontaneous resolution of the disease. In 5% to 10% of the cases, though, the infection will persist and a chronic hepatitis will develop that may evolve leading, in the end, to liver cirrhosis, liver failure and/or carcinoma of the liver. The diagnosis of the different stages of the disease (i.e., acute, chronic infection) is performed using modern serologic techniques. Physicians, more recently, are having access to a series of laboratory tests which permit them to evaluate the viral load, replication of the virus and to testing of the efficacy of new anti-viral drugs. For the treatment of chronic hepatitis B new agents have been tested and some are being used with different degrees of success, such as, alfa-interferon, lamivudine, famciclovir, and adefovir dipivoxil, among others. Active immunization, using modern recombinant vaccines, are lately, the most important instrument of control of the infection caused by the hepatitis B virus.

The economic impact of famciclovir therapy for postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) in patients with acute herpes zoster was studied. A decision-analytic model of the treatment of herpes zoster and PHN was used to compare the cost of PHN between patients treated with oral famciclovir 500 mg three times daily for seven days and patients not receiving any antiviral therapy. The effects of famciclovir on PHN in the model were based on the results of a randomized, double-blind trial in 419 adult outpatients. The cost of the course of famciclovir therapy (21 tablets) was estimated as the sum of the drug's wholesale acquisition cost and the pharmacy dispensing cost. The cost of treating PHN (physician visits, medications, and miscellaneous nondrug therapy) was estimated by consulting a panel of physicians. According to the model, the cost of treating PHN was $85 lower per famciclovir recipient ($294 for famciclovir versus $379 for no antiviral therapy). The net cost of famciclovir therapy was $23 per patient ($108 for acquisition and dispensing minus the $85 savings). Among patients 50 years of age or older, famciclovir reduced the average cost of PHN by $155 ($414 for famciclovir versus $569 for no antiviral therapy) and yielded a net savings of $7 per patient. A model for the use of famciclovir to treat acute herpes zoster showed that the cost of such therapy was largely offset by savings in the cost of treating this complication.

Genital herpes and herpes labialis are prevalent, physically and psychologically painful, and often disabling. Herpes zoster is often very painful and may result in months or years of postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). Over the past two decades, the treatment of these conditions has been transformed by guanosine nucleoside antivirals such as valacyclovir (Valtrex, a highly bioavailable prodrug of acyclovir (Zovirax, and famciclovir (Famvir), a highly bioavailable prodrug of penciclovir (Denavir).

Until recently, interferon monotherapy has been the only available therapeutic option for patients with chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Lamivudine has emerged as another effective first-line therapy for chronic hepatitis B as well as a beneficial treatment option for patients with decompensated hepatitis B cirrhosis. Viral resistance with long-term lamivudine therapy remains a major concern but new data continue to show benefits despite the development of YMDD mutations. Combination therapy with ribavirin and pegylated interferon-alpha has revolutionized the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. The rate of sustained virological response can now be expected to be as high as nearly 50% for genotype 1 and 80% for non-1 genotypes of hepatitis C.

Despite the existence of vaccines, chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains a major health problem worldwide. Interferon therapy successfully controls infection in only a small percentage of chronically infected individuals. The recent approval of the nucleoside analogue lamivudine for the treatment of chronic HBV infection has ushered in a new era of antiviral therapy. While lamivudine is highly effective at controlling viral infection short-term, prolonged therapy has been associated with an increasing incidence of viral resistance. Thus, it appears that lamivudine alone will not be sufficient to control chronic viral infection in the majority of individuals. In addition to lamivudine, several new nucleoside and nucleotide analogues that show promising antihepadnaviral activity are in various stages of development. Lamivudine resistance has been found to confer cross-resistance to some of these compounds and it is likely that resistance to newer antivirals may also develop during prolonged use. Drug resistance therefore poses a major threat to nucleoside analogue-based therapies for chronic HBV infection. Fortunately, combination chemotherapy (antiviral therapy with two or more agents) can minimize the chance that resistance will develop and can be expected to achieve sustained reductions in viral load, provided that suitable combinations of agents are chosen. Here we review the basis of drug resistance in HBV, with emphasis on aspects that are likely to affect drug choice in future.

In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that was performed at 11 university and 9 private ambulatory care referral centers, 375 women who were 18 years of age or older and had a history of 6 or more episodes of genital herpes during 12 of the last 24 months in the absence of suppressive therapy were treated for 4 months with oral famciclovir, 125 mg once daily or twice daily, 250 mg once daily or twice daily, 500 mg once daily, or placebo. The primary outcome measures included the time to first clinically and virologically confirmed recurrences, and safety as measured by clinical laboratory tests and adverse experiences.

Geographic and racial factors have been reported in studies of the epidemiology of varicella and herpes zoster. To clarify further these relationships, data from five multicenter clinical trials of the antiviral agent famciclovir were examined (total N = 2074). Non-Caucasian racial group and tropical region were each significantly associated with younger age at zoster onset. In analyses of the non-Caucasian subgroups, Black and Asian patients did not significantly differ in age or sex; however, Black and Asian patients from tropical regions had significantly younger mean ages at onset and greater rash duration at enrollment than those from temperate regions. Controlling for sex and rash duration at enrollment, both tropical region and non-Caucasian racial group were found to be independently associated with a younger age at zoster onset. These results suggest that racial group and geographic region may be independent factors associated with age at onset in patients with herpes zoster.

Sorivudine provides a unique nucleoside analog with significantly enhanced both in vitro as in vitro activity toward VZV and enhanced oral bioavailability, as compared with existing antivirals. Early indications from controlled studies, while not peer reviewed, indicate that sorivudine therapy is superior to acyclovir for the treatment of localized zoster in individuals with HIV infection and chicken pox in adults. These studies await peer evaluation. One might question, as these data unfold, the relative clinical value of antivirals with such enhanced in vitro activity and oral bioavailability as compared to standard compounds. Should these drugs induce accelerated healing, but not as dramatically as would have been anticipated from the in vitro data, new approaches to the management of herpes zoster will need to be developed if further improvement is desired. Despite this provision, sorivudine therapy does appear to result in significantly accelerated healing of cutaneous zoster as compared to acyclovir, and sorivudine can be administered once daily in a dose that is one-hundredth that of acyclovir, and less than one tenth of the doses of valacuyclovir or famciclovir. These findings in and of themselves should allow for licensure of the compound in developed societies.

A balanced crossover design was used. Phase I consisted of a single administration (62.5 mg, PO) of famciclovir. Phase II consisted of multiple doses of famciclovir (62.5 mg, PO) given every 8 or 12 hours for 3 days. Plasma penciclovir concentrations were assayed via liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry at fixed time points after famciclovir administration.

Eight hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-positive patients who received allogeneic bone marrow transplantation were given oral famciclovir 250 mg three times daily, starting at least 1 week prior to bone marrow transplantation and continuing for 24 weeks after transplantation. Clinical and serological outcomes in these patients were compared with 24 HBsAg-positive recipients of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation who did not receive famciclovir (historical controls).

Entecavir (ETV) exhibits potent antiviral activity in patients chronically infected with wild-type or lamivudine (3TC)-resistant (3TC(r)) hepatitis B virus (HBV). Among the patients treated in phase II ETV clinical trials, two patients for whom previous therapies had failed exhibited virologic breakthrough while on ETV. Isolates from these patients (arbitrarily designated patients A and B) were analyzed genotypically for emergent substitutions in HBV reverse transcriptase (RT) and phenotypically for reduced susceptibility in cultures and in HBV polymerase assays. After 54 weeks of 3TC therapy, patient A (AI463901-A) received 0.5 mg of ETV for 52 weeks followed by a combination of ETV and 100 mg of 3TC for 89 weeks. Viral rebound occurred at 133 weeks after ETV was started. The 3TC(r) RT substitutions rtV173L, rtL180M, and rtM204V were present at study entry, and the additional substitutions rtI169T and rtM250V emerged during ETV-3TC combination treatment. Reduced ETV susceptibility in vitro required the rtM250V substitution in addition to the 3TC(r) substitutions. For liver transplant patient B (AI463015-B), previous famciclovir, ganciclovir, foscarnet, and 3TC therapies had failed, and RT changes rtS78S/T, rtV173L, rtL180M, rtT184S, and rtM204V were present at study entry. Viral rebound occurred after 76 weeks of therapy with ETV at 1.0 mg, with the emergence of rtT184G, rtI169T, and rtS202I substitutions within the preexisting 3TC(r) background. Reduced susceptibility in vitro was highest when both the rtT184G and the rtS202I changes were combined with the 3TC(r) substitutions. In summary, infrequent ETV resistance can emerge during prolonged therapy, with selection of additional RT substitutions within a 3TC(r) HBV background, leading to reduced ETV susceptibility and treatment failure.

None of the patients had a complete biochemical response, with a near complete normalization of ALT levels being observed in 3/6 patients. There was a lack of correlation between virological and biochemical responses. None of the patients seroconverted to anti-HBs or anti-HBe. A virological clearance was observed in only two patients, whereas a moderate reduction in HBV DNA levels was present in one. HBV DNA levels were higher than levels during pretreatment in the three remaining patients. Histological improvement was only observed in one patient.

Neonatal herpes is a potentially devastating consequence of perinatal transmission of the herpes simplex virus (HSV), with significant morbidity and mortality. Treatment options are available, but must begin early in disease with manifestations that are often protean. Thus, preventive measures need to be optimised. Antiviral suppression in late pregnancy of women with a history of recurrent genital herpes will decrease symptomatic recurrence at delivery and appears to reduce caesarian section rates. However, primary HSV Type 2 and primary HSV Type 1 episodes have the highest neonatal transmission rates and thus, effective prevention may require the identification and suppression of the discordant partner. Significant experience has been gained with the use of acyclovir in pregnancy and it is recommended for both episodic and suppressive therapy in pregnant women. Its use has been demonstrated to be cost-effective in suppressive therapy, although issues regarding compliance and the potential for neonatal neutropenia need to be addressed. The more conveniently dosed prodrugs valacyclovir and famciclovir are being evaluated for use in pregnancy.

Famciclovir and valaciclovir were approved for use in the treatment of herpes zoster despite controversy over antiviral therapy in zoster due to high costs and uncertain benefits. To explore these issues, a Markov decision model was developed, and the incremental cost effectiveness of antiviral treatment for herpes zoster was estimated using these agents compared with no antiviral therapy. A third-party payer perspective was taken. Sensitivity analyses were performed, modeling differences in antiviral efficacy, postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) risk, and other illness parameters. Treatment of severely symptomatic acute zoster was found reasonable from a cost-effectiveness standpoint in base-case and worst-case scenarios. Treatment of mildly symptomatic acute zoster was more expensive but would likely be considered cost effective in scenarios where PHN risk was higher, PHN duration longer, or antiviral shortening of PHN greater. Further research comparing antiviral efficacy in herpes zoster is needed.

Ulcerative colitis (UC) in adult age requires more careful examination because more often it turns out to be a complication related to the precancer condition. The onset of colitis in older age is predicted to follow a more aggressive clinical course and requires more frequent hospitalizations and steroids prescription in contrast to its onset in young patients. Even as this remains unclear, we present here a clinical case of late onset of acute severe UC to represent interesting clinical peculiarities and response to the therapy. Patient P., a 57-year-old male complained of 8 days of bloody diarrhea and lower abdominal pain. He reported having up to 3-5 urgent stool per day and 3-4 stool per night weight loss with dehydration. Stool culture was negative for infection, but fecal leukocytes were present. Flexible colonoscopy and biopsies were performed, which showed friable and erythematous mucosa with erosions and ulcers in a diffuse circumferential distribution from the anal verge to the cecum. There were no pseudomembranes. Histological evaluation revealed acute inflammation without architectural distortion consistent with either acute infectious colitis or new inflammatory bowel disease, favoring UC. Treatment for presumed UC is initiated with mesalazine 8 g daily: 4 g orally, 4 g per rectum and prednisone at 40 mg orally daily. After 48 h, stool frequency was 12 times per day (2 per night) with urgency, and blood was seen in stool occasionally. Intravenous steroids were prescribed - 16 mg of dexamethasone. After 48 h, stool frequency reduced to 8 per day, 1-2 per night, with traces of blood in stool and general well-being was increased. But after 14 days, the condition did not change significantly. Infliximab 5 mg/kg was administered and after the first infusion, stool frequency reduced to 4 times per day without urgency and night diarrhea. Azathioprine 100 mg per day was prescribed after steroid (prednisone) withdrawal. But after the third infusion of infliximab, the patient felt pain along the intercostal nerves along with skin redness and itching. Herpes zoster virus infection was diagnosed. Famciclovir 750 mg per day was prescribed, azathioprine was stopped, infusions of infliximab were continued and after 12 months, patient was started on a monotherapy of infliximab 1 time per 8 weeks and he had stable remission.

Over the last few years we have seen the advent of effective antiviral drug therapy, the major ramifications being in the area of herpes infections. Acyclovir has become an established buy famvir part of clinical practice, and other compounds are being increasingly used in the immunocompromised host. An effective vaccine is available for chickenpox, but herpes simplex and cytomegalovirus vaccines are still in early development. Thus, antiviral agents will continue to play a major role in the management of all herpesvirus infections for the foreseeable future. Current work includes the development of increased bioavailability prodrugs (BW 256, famciclovir), which are converted to active drug once absorbed, enabling rapid high serum levels, and hence may turn out to have increased efficacy in HSV- and VZV-induced diseases, for which oral acyclovir currently is the treatment of choice. Markedly increased efficacy against VZV in vitro has been demonstrated by two current agents under study (BVaraU, BW 882). HPMPC is now entering clinical trials with a markedly improved efficacy profile against CMV and HSV in animal models. Finally, drug combinations that are being investigated in AIDS may offer a means to avoid resistance in herpes infections in immunocompromised patients.

Despite hepatitis B immunoprophylaxis hepatitis B virus (HBV) recurrence is a frequent and often fatal complication after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). The purine nucleoside analogues penciclovir and its oral form famciclovir (FCV) proved to be well tolerated and effective against herpes simplex and zoster virus infections. In addition, an effective reduction of duck and human HBV replication was observed. Therefore, we conducted an uncontrolled pilot study of famciclovir in patients with HBV recurrence after OLT. Twelve patients have received famciclovir for at least 3 months in an open compassionate-use protocol. FCV was administered orally 500 mg three times a day for all patients (except one patient who was started on 750 mg three times a day for the first 2 weeks). Immediately after starting famciclovir, serum HBV DNA levels declined in 9 of 12 patients (75%) with a mean reduction from baseline levels of 80% after 3 months, 90% after 6 months, and > 95% after 12 months of treatment. With continued treatment, 5 of these 9 patients became negative by conventional hybridization assay, and in one of these HBV DNA became undetectable by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) 28 weeks after the start of treatment. Three patients showed no (sustained) Asacol Medication Discontinued reduction in HBV DNA after at least 3 months of treatment; therefore, FCV was stopped. Latest serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels decreased in 6 of 12 patients (50%) with a median decrease of 80% (range, 40%-95%) in comparison to pretreatment ALT values. ALT levels normalized in 4 patients (33%). One patient died due to sepsis and peritonitis in week 13 of treatment. This event was not related to FCV. No clinically significant side effects were noticed in any patient. The oral nucleoside analog famciclovir reduces HBV replication and transaminase levels in patients with HBV recurrence after liver transplantation. Because long-term FCV treatment is well tolerated, famciclovir appears to be a promising antiviral strategy in the treatment of HBV in immunocompromised patients.

Genital herpes is a Hyzaar Drug Interactions lifelong incurable viral infection that can have a significant psychological and emotional impact on patients. A common therapy for treating recurrent outbreaks is the episodic use of nucleoside analogues for 3-5 days. However, since maximum viral replication occurs within 24 h after symptoms first appear, the best option may be short-term, patient-initiated episodic therapy, administered during the onset of prodromal symptoms. This commentary will examine the results of a recent clinical trial of patient-initiated episodic famciclovir therapy that is administered for a single day and compare efficacy data from that trial with data from trials of currently prescribed antiviral therapies.

The virological profile of infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) is changing in many parts of the world from the classical hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)-positive serological pattern to a HBeAg-negative pattern, linked to the replacement of wild-type HBV by HBV variants with mutations in the core-promoter and in the precore region that prevent the secretion of HBeAg. The wild-type HBV disease is characterised by steady levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and high HBV-DNA levels, responding relatively well to IFN treatment (3 - 5 MU/day or 10 MU every other day for 16 weeks), which induces anti-HBe seroconversion and normalises ALT levels in Bactrim Mrsa Dose approximately 30% of the adults, with a minimal risk of relapse. Pegylated-IFN appears to have superior efficacy over conventional IFN-alpha. Mutant-type disease (anti-HBe-positive/HBeAg-negative) is less responsive to IFN given for 6 - 12 months. This has led to the use of novel nucleoside analogues, of which the prototype is lamivudine. The response to lamivudine therapy shares with IFN a rapid decline in ALT accompanied by an improvement in histology; at variance with IFN, in HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B (CHB) there is delayed seroconversion to anti-HBe which accumulates over time, the switch to anti-HBs is more rare and in the long-term, the activity of the drug is abolished by the emergence of viral mutations (YMDD-motif mutants) that may rekindle the disease. The combination of IFN plus lamivudine may be more efficacious than IFN or lamivudine monotherapy. Lamivudine therapy needs to be prolonged in HBeAg-negative CHB. Short-term lamivudine-therapy is highly efficacious in preventing HBV reinfection in liver transplants. Recent data suggest that long-term IFN therapy (24 months) may achieve a response in 30% of HBeAg-negative patients. The advent of adefovir, an analogue of adenosine monophosphate, may provide a safer alternative to lamivudine in the control of HBV disease; the drug is well-tolerated and treatment raises drug-resistant mutants in < 2% of the patients over 2 years of therapy. Adefovir provides rescue therapy against YMDD mutants raised by lamivudine therapy.

Over the past 15 years, acyclovir has become established as standard therapy for the management of herpes simplex virus infections, but there are Vermox Buy areas where improvements might be made. Acyclovir has a relatively low oral bioavailability. As a result, valaciclovir, the L-valine ester of acyclovir, is being developed. This new drug produces enhanced plasma levels of acyclovir following oral dosing, which will not only allow more convenient dosing for the treatment of herpes simplex virus and varicella zoster virus (VZV) infections, but also mean that valaciclovir has the potential for superior clinical efficacy over acyclovir. This may broaden the potential utility of the drug to include human cytomegalovirus prophylaxis. Other new drugs in the antiherpes area include penciclovir and its pro-drug famciclovir, which have antiviral characteristics similar to acyclovir but no clinical benefit over and above that seen with acyclovir has been demonstrated. The synthesis of new specific antiherpes compounds has led to the discovery of a novel nucleoside analogue, 882C87, which has significantly greater activity against VZV than acyclovir. The compound also has a longer plasma half-life than acyclovir which may permit less frequent dosing.

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections can be treated efficiently by the application of antiviral drugs. The herpes family of viruses is responsible for causing a wide variety of diseases in humans. The standard therapy for the management of such infections includes acyclovir (ACV) and penciclovir (PCV) with their respective prodrugs valaciclovir and famciclovir. Though effective, long term prophylaxis with the current drugs leads to development of drug-resistant viral isolates, particularly in immunocompromised patients. Moreover, some drugs are associated with dose-limiting toxicities which limit their further utility. Therefore, there is a need to develop new antiherpetic compounds with different mechanisms of action which will be safe and effective against emerging drug resistant viral isolates. Significant advances have been made towards the design and development of novel antiviral therapeutics during the last decade. As evident by their excellent antiviral activities, pharmaceutical companies are moving forward with several new compounds into various phases of clinical trials. This review provides an overview of structure and life cycle of HSV, progress in the development of new therapies, update on the advances in emerging therapeutics under clinical development and related recent patents for the treatment of Herpes simplex virus infections.

The in vitro antihepadnavirus activities of the purine nucleoside analogs ganciclovir (9-[2-hydroxy-1-(hydroxymethyl)ethoxymethyl]guanine) and penciclovir [9-(4-hydroxy-3-hydroxymethylbut-1-yl)guanine; BRL 39123] were compared in primary duck hepatocyte cultures congenitally infected with the duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV). Both compounds inhibited DHBV DNA replication to a comparable extent during continuous short-term treatment of the cultures. However penciclovir was more active both during longer-term continuous treatment (50% inhibitory concentrations: penciclovir, 0.7 +/- 0.1 microM; ganciclovir, 4.0 +/- 0.2 microM) and in washout experiments (50% inhibitory concentrations: penciclovir, 3.0 +/- 0.4 microM; ganciclovir, 46 +/- 1.5 microM) designed to compare the persistence of inhibitory activity after removal of the extracellular compound. The effects on viral protein synthesis were similar to the effects on viral DNA replication. These data suggest that penciclovir or its oral form, famciclovir, may have clinical utility in the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus infection.

So what is the take-home message from these studies? The first question, about fetal and neonatal safety, appears to be answered positively. With more than 1,812 infants reported to have been exposed to varying amounts and duration of maternal acyclovir suppression, there has not been any apparent, short-term adverse fetal or neonatal effect. Use of acyclovir in infants, even in those that are premature, is very well tolerated, with a wide margin of safety. In addition, the pharmacokinetics studies by Frenkel et al and Kimberlin et al, as well as the animal studies, suggest that maternal use of acyclovir may actually provide a prophylactic and therapeutic benefit to an infant who is exposed to HSV. The second question, as to whether acyclovir suppression would simply change symptomatic outbreaks into asymptomatic ones, also appears to have some answers. The information provided by Wald et al indicated that acyclovir suppression actually decreases asymptomatic shedding, along with decreasing clinical recurrences. Because asymptomatic shedding seems to be similar in pregnant and nonpregnant patients, it would be reasonable to assume that asymptomatic shedding also would be decreased at delivery in pregnant women with HSV infection. This supposition is supported by the data from the randomized trials and cohort studies that demonstrated a lower than expected asymptomatic shedding rate. As yet, however, there has been no randomized trial in pregnant women that has had an adequate sample size to confirm this on a statistically significant basis. The third question, whether acyclovir suppression would lower the frequency of symptomatic recurrences at parturition, reducing the need for cesarean in these patients, has answers as well, although they may not be as clear cut as one would like. Women who experience their first genital herpes outbreak while they are pregnant seem to benefit from acyclovir suppression, with both a decrease in the risk of clinical recurrences at delivery and a decreased need for cesarean delivery. This is well documented by a randomized trial and other cohort studies. Acyclovir's efficacy in patients who have a history of genital herpes infections antedating their pregnancy is less clear. The data appear to indicate a clinically important decrease in the likelihood of symptomatic reactivations at the time of delivery, although the sample sizes in the randomized studies have been too small to draw a statistically significant conclusion one way or the other. Unfortunately, a definitive trial for this group of women may never be done. Assuming a 13% recurrence risk at the time of delivery and a 50% decrease in recurrences with the use of acyclovir, 652 women would have to complete the study to achieve a power of 80%. Conducting the study at the largest, single institution, prenatal center in the United States, Scott et al were only able to enroll 222 women during a period of 6 years. Likewise, Brocklehurst et al terminated their trial early because of recruitment difficulties. They enrolled only 63 women during a period of 4 years using two different sites in the United Kingdom. Unless a multicenter trial is conducted or a meta-analysis performed on the available data, we will probably have to be content with the data as it now stands. With valacyclovir and famciclovir now available, it is unlikely that any further work will be done with acyclovir. Information from the valacyclovir trials, however, may reach statistical significance because of changes in the study design that will allow smaller sample sizes to reach adequate power. Famciclovir treatment holds promise because of its longer intracellular half-life, but until concerns about potential mutagenicity are resolved and more information on its efficacy for suppressive therapy becomes available, it should not be considered for maternal suppressive therapy. Acyclovir appears to be effective, at least in some cohorts, and is probably safe for the fetus. (AB

Chronic oral aphthae, recurrent genital ulcers and uveitis are the three main manifestations of Behçet's disease (BD). The aetiopathogenesis of BD is still obscure, but herpes simplex virus (HSV) is one of the possible causal factors. Various kinds of drugs, including immunosuppressants and aciclovir have been used in treatment, but effectiveness is variable.

The purpose of this study was to investigate possible resistance mutations which arose in the polymerase gene of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in a patient with severe recurrent HBV infection following liver transplantation. The patient's management included antiviral chemotherapy for almost 4 years comprising ganciclovir, foscarnet and famciclovir. In the last 2.5 years of famciclovir treatment, an increase in serum HBV DNA levels and a reduced sensitivity of the virion-associated DNA polymerase to penciclovir triphosphate were observed.

Plasma and aqueous penciclovir concentrations showed significant variability that could only be partially explained by renal function, body weight and comedication. Concentrations in the aqueous humour were much lower than in plasma, suggesting that factors in the blood-aqueous humour barrier might prevent its ocular penetration or that redistribution occurs in other ocular compartments.

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are very common in the general population and can be treated with the nucleoside analogue acyclovir. Acyclovir is initially phosphorylated intracellularly in HSV-infected cells by a viral-specific thymidine kinase to acyclovir-monophosphate. The monophosphate is subsequently di- and triphosphorylated by host cellular kinases to the active form of the drug, which inhibits HSV DNA polymerase and incorporates into the elongating viral DNA and causes chain termination. Acyclovir resistance has been increasingly described and is caused by mutations in either the thymidine kinase or the DNA polymerase genes. These mutations result in decreased or absent HSV thymidine kinase production, altered affinity of the thymidine kinase for acyclovir-triphosphate, or altered affinity of the HSV DNA polymerase for acyclovir-triphosphate. Thymidine kinase deficiency accounts for approximately 95% of acyclovir-resistant isolates. Clinical disease due to acyclovir-resistant HSV occurs primarily in immunocompromised patients and is usually characterized by a chronic, progressive ulcerative mucocutaneous disease with prolonged shedding of virus. Several large surveys have been done in an effort to determine the incidence of in vitro and clinical acyclovir resistance. Among immunocompetent hosts, even those who have received > or = 6 years of continuous acyclovir, the prevalence of acyclovir-resistant isolates has remained stable at approximately 3%. Only three cases of clinical resistance of HSV to acyclovir have been reported. However, the incidence in immunocompromised patients, particularly those with AIDS and those who have had bone marrow transplants, is increasing. Transmission of acyclovir-resistant isolates from person to person has not been documented, but due to the increased use of acyclovir and newer drugs, such as famciclovir, there is great concern that this transmission might occur in the future. Continued surveillance in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised hosts for the development of clinical acyclovir-resistant HSV disease is necessary.

Genital herpes is the most prevalent sexually transmitted infection in the USA. While sometimes mild in severity, it can be a distressing and painful chronic condition. Likewise, herpes labialis and herpes zoster can be both physically and psychologically painful. While there is no cure for these conditions, treatment to alleviate symptoms, suppress recurrences and reduce transmission has been drastically improved over the past 20 years with the use of guanine nucleoside antivirals, such as valacyclovir hydrochloride (Valtrex), GlaxoSmithKline) the highly bioavailable prodrug of acyclovir (Zovirax((R)), GlaxoSmithKline), and famciclovir (Famvir, Novartis), a highly bioavailable prodrug of penciclovir (Denavir, Novartis). Clinical trials involving approximately 10,000 patients (including patients from nongenital herpes studies, such as herpes zoster) have assessed the safety and efficacy of valacyclovir in the treatment of initial genital herpes outbreaks, episodic treatment of recurrent episodes and daily suppressive therapy. It was shown that valacyclovir has similar efficacy to acyclovir in the episodic and suppressive treatment of genital herpes. Valacyclovir is the only antiviral drug approved for a once-daily dose of suppressive therapy for genital herpes, as well as the only antiviral drug US FDA approved for a 3-day regimen of episodic treatment of recurrent genital herpes. In addition, valacyclovir is also indicated in the reduction of the sexual transmission of herpes simplex virus infection and for the treatment of herpes labialis. In herpes zoster, valacyclovir is more effective than acyclovir or placebo (and as equally effective as famciclovir) in shortening the length and severity of herpes zoster-associated pain and postherpetic neuralgia. Valacyclovir has an acceptable safety profile in patients with herpes simplex and herpes zoster. The less frequent dosing regimen makes it an attractive option in the treatment of genital herpes and other viral infections, and may contribute to increased patient adherence to therapy.

Treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in an individual with periarteritis nodosum is described. A combination of famciclovir, granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and interferon alpha 2b was utilized. The periarteritis, but not the HBV infection, responded to immunosuppressive therapy consisting of cyclophosphamide and glucocorticoids. Moreover, the patient failed to clear this HBV infection, despite a full year of interferon therapy at 5 MU daily. With the addition of famciclovir and GM-CSF, the HBV infection rapidly resolved and he converted from HBsAg and eAg positive to HBsAb and eAb positive. No exacerbation of his periarteritis nodosum occurred during the course of his antiviral therapy.

Liver transplantation in hepatitis B virus (HBV)-infected patients is very commonly followed by recurrence of infection in the transplanted liver. Most recipients with HBV recurrence will develop chronic hepatitis that follows a more aggressive course than is seen in non-immuno-compromized subjects and this frequently results in graft failure. The presence of hepatitis B e antigen or significant levels of HBV-DNA in the serum is highly predictive of recurrence and this has led to the view that patients, whose serum is positive for these conventional markers of replication, should be excluded from transplantation. The key to improving the results of transplantation in patients with HBV infection lies in the development of effective strategies to prevent reinfection. High dose anti-HBs immunoglobulin is effective in patients who are coinfected with hepatitis D, those transplanted for fulminant hepatitis and cirrhotic patients who have very low levels of viral replication prior to transplantation. Unfortunately, immunoprophylaxis does not seem to influence the outcome in those patients with higher levels of replication. There are several new orally active nucleoside analogues that and potent inhibitors of hepatitis B replication that may be effective for both the prevention and treatment of recurrent disease. The most promising are lamivudine (2',3',dideoxy,3',thiacytidine) and famciclovir (a guanosine analogue). Both agents have been extensively evaluated in animal models of HBV and have been shown to rapidly suppress viral replication. The initial experience with these agents in liver transplant recipients has been promising and a number of studies are currently underway to determine whether these drugs, used alone or in combination with immunoprophylaxis, are able to prevent recurrence in those patients at highest risk of post-transplant HBV recurrence.
