Although vidarabine was the first systemic antiviral drug for the treatment of acute herpes zoster, the agent now used most frequently is acyclovir, a far safer drug that became available a decade ago. However, even with widespread use of acyclovir, postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) remains a principal cause of postinfectious morbidity. Newer antiviral agents, such as famciclovir and valacyclovir, have recently been introduced for the treatment of uncomplicated herpes zoster. In a double-blind, randomized study, 500 mg of famciclovir three times daily for 7 days was compared with placebo; in a second study, 500 mg of famciclovir three times daily for 7 days was compared with 800 mg of acyclovir five times daily for 7 days. Famciclovir significantly reduced duration of viral shedding (P = 0.0001) and accelerated lesion resolution compared with placebo. Famciclovir was comparable to acyclovir for these acute parameters. Most importantly, famciclovir recipients lost PHN two times faster than those receiving placebo (P = 0.02 all patients; P = 0.004 patients > or = 50 years) resulting in a reduction in the median duration of PHN (56 days all patients; 100 days patients > or = 50 years). This reduction translated to a 3.5-month reduction in the median duration of PHN for patients 50 years or older, those at greatest risk for developing the most common complication of herpes zoster. Famciclovir 500 mg administered three times a day for 7 days is an effective and well-tolerated treatment for acute herpes zoster, and is the only oral antiviral agent proven to reduce the duration of PHN when administered during acute zoster infection.

A high-performance liquid chromatographic method and a UV derivative spectrophotometric method for the determination of famciclovir, a highly active antiviral agent, in tablets were developed in the present work. The various parameters, such as linearity, precision, accuracy, specificity, robustness, limit of detection and limit of quantitation were studied according to International Conference on Harmonization guidelines. HPLC was carried out by using the reversed-phase technique on an RP-18 column with a mobile phase composed of 50 mM monobasic phosphate buffer and methanol (50 : 50; v/v), adjusted to pH 3.05 with orthophosphoric acid. The mobile phase was pumped at a flow rate of 1 ml/min and detection was made at 242 nm with UV dual absorbance detector. The first derivative UV spectrophotometric method was performed at 226.5 nm. Statistical analysis was done by Student's t-test and F-test, which showed no significant difference between the results obtained by the two methods. The proposed methods are highly sensitive, precise and accurate and therefore can be used for its Intended purpose.

Currently, the only therapy of proven benefit in chronic hepatitis B is interferon-alpha which leads to a long-term benefit in only one-third of patients. New therapies for hepatitis B fall into three categories; antiviral chemotherapy, immunomodulation with cell-based therapies, vaccines or cytokines, and gene therapy such as with antisense oligonucleotides, ribozymes or viral mutants. The most promising immediate approach to therapy is with the new nucleoside antivirals--lamivudine and famciclovir. These drugs are well absorbed orally, result in profound inhibition of circulating hepatitis B virus, and, in some cases, loss of hepatitis B e antigen and improvement in serum aminotransferases. Controlled trials of long-term famciclovir and lamivudine therapy currently underway aim to show whether these drugs are safe and can provide sustained inhibition of viral replication and attentant improvement in liver disease.

A 9-yr-old male cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) housed at the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia developed cutaneous lesions consisting of alopecia, erythema, ulceration, and crusting on the left fore and hind limbs. Histopathology of skin biopsies in conjunction with indirect fluorescent antibody and polymerase chain reaction testing confirmed a diagnosis of feline herpesvirus-1 dermatitis; microbial culture indicated secondary bacterial infection. Therapy included targeted systemic antimicrobial and antiviral treatment, topical medications, and repeated cryotherapy. Lesions exhibited varying degrees of clinical improvement but, overall, progressed in extent, size, and severity during the subsequent 2.5 yr of intense treatment. The cheetah was ultimately euthanized due to a guarded prognosis and concerns about poor quality of life. Potential factors initiating or contributing (or both) to the severity and nonhealing nature of the cutaneous lesions include chronic unidentified stress, altered immune system function, and other environmental influences.

We searched the Cochrane Neuromuscular Disease Group Trials Register (January 13 2009), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library 2008, Issue 4), MEDLINE (January 1966 to November Week 3 2008), EMBASE (January 1980 to Week 02 2009), LILACS (January 1982 to 13 January 2009), and the Chinese Biomedical Retrieval System (January 1978 to 13 January 2009). We checked the references of published studies to identify additional trials.

We obtained data from the British Columbia PharmaNet database on all outpatient oral antimicrobial prescriptions from 1996 to 2000 and converted them to their defined daily dose (DDD) equivalents according to the ATC system. Trends in utilization associated with a changing formulary status of new antimicrobial agents were analysed. Maximum likelihood estimation was used to determine the rate of increase in utilization resulting from addition to the formulary. Models were adjusted for seasonal and temporal trends as well as serial correlation.

An updated review of the antiviral agents currently available or under trial for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B is presented. There are two broad groups: (1) immunomodulators including interferon a (which also has a direct antiviral effect), thymosin a1 and Theradigm-HBV and (2) viral suppressors such as famciclovir and lamivudine. These agents are still in clinical trial worldwide, singly or in combination. Their long term efficacy in the treatment of hepatitis B remains to be evaluated.

Recurrent genital herpes is a major problem for patients worldwide. Early episodic treatment with short-course therapy is effective, often stopping progression of outbreaks. This study is the first head-to-head comparison of single-day famciclovir (1000 mg administered twice daily) versus 3-day valacyclovir (500 mg administered twice daily) for episodic therapy in immunocompetent patients.

The NFHS guidelines are inadequate to prevent and control outbreaks of HG. The focus of preventive efforts needs to change from mat cleanliness to more rapid detection of outbreaks by requiring culture results and appropriate therapy for all suspected bacterial and herpes lesions before allowing return to contact. To minimize and control spread of HG, treatment and isolation should be implemented based not only on vesicle formation but also on systemic signs and symptoms.

In older patients, prophylaxis of herpesvirus infections mainly involves preventing the recurrence of herpes simplex virus (HSV) and complications of herpes zoster in immunocompetent patients, while in immunocompromised patients it is more concerned with the prevention of opportunistic virus reactivation. HSV ocular infection is the most frequent cause of corneal blindness in the US. The effectiveness of aciclovir 400mg twice daily in preventing the recurrence of HSV eye disease in immunocompetent patients has been well demonstrated. The issue of treatment duration for patients with highly recurrent ocular herpes remains unresolved. Post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) is one of the most common neuralgic illnesses worldwide. Some progress in prevention of PHN has been made with a combination of antiviral therapy (famciclovir or valaciclovir), started within 72 hours of onset of the rash, and analgesic treatment. However, the best prevention of PHN is the prevention of herpes zoster disease, and the varicella vaccine is an option which over the next few years will be tested in clinical trials. For immunocompromised patients of any age, restoring immunity prevents herpesvirus disease, as demonstrated for cytomegalovirus (CMV) in AIDS patients receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy. Specific antiviral therapy during the initial period after transplantation could prevent reactivation of HSV or CMV in seropositive recipients. Whether pre-emptive therapy or prophylaxis with ganciclovir is the optimal approach against CMV remains controversial, and the relative merits and limitations of each approach may guide the choice. In stem cell transplantation, pre-emptive therapy with foscarnet avoids the neutropenia and related complications associated with ganciclovir. In renal transplant recipients, universal prophylaxis of CMV infection with valaciclovir has the same efficacy as ganciclovir. Although it is relatively toxic, cidofovir should be further evaluated because of its in vitro activity against most DNA viruses.

The mainstay of therapy for patients with chronic hepatitis B is inhibition of the replicative cycle of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in hepatocytes. Antiviral agents have different potencies. The measurement of HBV DNA in serum can monitor the potency of these therapeutic agents. Viral breakthrough may occur during therapy, which is defined as an abrupt increase in serum HBV DNA levels after a period of persistent suppression. The accuracy of HBV DNA detection depends on the sensitivity of assays. The third-generation quantitative assays have a lower limit of detection in ranges similar to those of quantitative PCR reaching 2 log10 copies/ml. The sensitive assays also give insight into the pathophysiology of chronic hepatitis B. Monotherapy usually suppresses the viral replication inadequately. It only brings about a reduction of serum HBV DNA levels from 8 to 4 log10 copies/ml. In other words, HBV is not completely eliminated. Viral breakthrough occurs with noncompliance to therapy and, also, when drug-resistant mutants emerge. Mutations in the YMDD motif of HBV polymerase lead to resistance to antivirals, such as lamivudine and famciclovir. In clinical practice, the diagnosis and management of viral breakthroughs are problematic and controversial. Due to advances in therapy, more potent agents are available such as adefovir dipivoxil that seldom induce viral breakthroughs for up to 134 weeks of therapy. Potent antiviral agents also lead to the decline of cccDNA in hepatocytes. Combination therapies may further improve efficacy and avoid viral breakthroughs.

Between 1988 and 1998 in total 179 patients were transplanted due to hepatitis B related liver failure at our centre. All patients received passive immunoprophylaxis with hepatitis B immunoglobulin. In case of reinfection after 1993 an antiviral therapy with famciclovir 1500 mg daily was initiated (n = 26), since 1996 lamivudine (100-150 mg daily) was used (n = 12). In case of viral breakthrough under famciclovir treatment or prophylaxis therapy was switched to lamivudine (n = 22). In case of ineffectiveness of lamivudine an antiviral combination therapy with lamivudine and interferon (n = 4) or lamivudine and famciclovir (n = 4) was initiated. Before availability of antiviral agents or in case of viral breakthrough in total 12 patients were retransplanted due to acute or chronic reinfection.

Famciclovir is the diacetyl 6-deoxy derivative of the active antiviral penciclovir that is for use in the treatment of infections caused by the herpes family of viruses. The major pathway of conversion is via di-deacetylation to BRL 42359, followed by oxidation to penciclovir. On oral dosing of famciclovir to humans, only penciclovir and BRL 42359 can be detected consistently in the plasma; thus, attention was focused on the oxidation reaction. This 6-oxidation occurred rapidly in human liver cytosol, had no requirement for cofactors, and followed simple Michaelis-Menten kinetics with a KM of 115 microM +/- 23 (N = 3). Using inhibitors of xanthine oxidase (allopurinol) and aldehyde oxidase (menadione and isovanillin), the relative roles of these enzymes in this process were determined. At a concentration of BRL 42359 that reflected plasma concentrations observed in humans (4 microM), both menadione (IC50 7 microM) and isovanillin (IC50 15 microM) caused extensive inhibition of the 6-oxidation reaction. In contrast, allopurinol caused no significant inhibition, confirming earlier in vivo work. At higher substrate concentrations (50 and 200 microM), the results with these inhibitors were broadly similar. These results provide strong evidence that aldehyde oxidase and not xanthine oxidase is responsible for the 6-oxidation of BRL 42359 to penciclovir in human liver cytosol, and this is likely to reflect the in vivo situation.

We examined the incidence of herpes varicella-zoster virus (VZV) infection in 151 patients undergoing allogeneic BMT between August 1990 and September 1997 and who survived at least 3 months. Median follow-up was 17 (range 3.3-80.7) months. Herpes simplex virus antibody positive (HSV+) patients received aciclovir 1200 mg p.o. daily or 750 mg i.v. daily, in divided doses from day 0 to engraftment. Ganciclovir (5 mg/kg i.v. three times per week) was given in CMV+ patients (or if the donor was CMV+) from engraftment to day 84. Ganciclovir was continued or recommenced if a dose of greater than 20 mg of prednisone was used for the treatment of GVHD otherwise aciclovir was recommenced. In HSV+ patients not receiving ganciclovir, aciclovir 600 mg p.o. daily in divided doses was given until at least 6 months after BMT. Thirty-two patients developed VZV infection from 4.1 to 28 months after transplant. The estimated cumulative incidence of VZV was 13% (95% confidence interval 6-19%) at buy famvir online 12 months, 32% (22-42%) at 24 months and 38% (27-50%) at 28 months, with no further cases beyond that time. No patient developed VZV whilst receiving aciclovir or ganciclovir (P < 0.0001). However, there was a rapid onset of VZV following cessation of antiviral therapy (33% (20-46%) at 1 year post cessation). The presence of GVHD and the prior duration of antiviral prophylaxis were significant and independent risk factors for the development of VZV. Age, underlying disease, conditioning therapy or donor type were not. We conclude that 3-6 months of low-dose aciclovir and ganciclovir are effective at delaying the onset of VZV after allogeneic BMT, but may not affect the overall incidence of infection. Prolonged prophylaxis may be warranted in patients at high risk of infection, for example those patients with GVHD.

The incidence of genital herpes continues to increase in epidemic-like fashion. Aciclovir (acyclovir) has been the original gold standard of therapy. The recent addition of famciclovir and valaciclovir as antiherpes drugs has improved convenience as well as the efficacy of treatment. Although aciclovir remains a widely buy famvir online prescribed and reliable drug, its administration schedule falls short of the ease of usage that the newer nucleoside analogues offer, for both episodic and suppressive therapy. Suppression of symptomatic disease and asymptomatic shedding from the genitalia have both become popular approaches, if not the primary targets of antiviral therapy. Knowing that asymptomatic disease leads to most cases of transmission strongly suggests that suppression with antiviral agents could reduce transmission risk in discordant couples. Unfortunately, the role for antivirals in reducing transmission remains to be proven in clinical trials. Neonatal herpes is now successfully treated using aciclovir. Current randomised clinical trials are examining aciclovir and valaciclovir administration, as well as safety and efficacy for post-acute suppressive therapy. Prevention of recurrences in pregnancy is also a topic under investigation, with a view to reducing the medical need for Cesarean section, or alternatively (and far less likely to be accomplished) to protect the neonate. Although resistance is largely limited to the immunocompromised and a change in resistance patterns is not expected, several drugs are available for the treatment of aciclovir-resistant strains of herpes simplex. Foscarnet is the main alternative with proven efficacy in this setting. Unfortunately, administration of foscarnet requires intravenous therapy, although a single anecdote of topical foscarnet efficacy in this setting has been published. Alternatives include cidofovir gel, which is not commercially available but can be formulated locally from the intravenous preparation. Less effective alternatives include trifluridine and interferon. Future possibilities for treatment of genital herpes include a microparticle-based controlled-release formulation of aciclovir and resiquimod (VML-600; R-848). The search for an effective therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes has not been successful to date, although a live virus glycoprotein H-deficient (DISC) vaccine is currently in clinical trials. Recent data suggest that seronegative women are protected (albeit, not fully) by a glycoprotein D recombinant vaccine with adjuvant. Despite the established safety and convenience of current treatment options, better suppressive options and topical treatment options are much needed. Studies using existing agents as potential tools to avoid Cesarean section, or transmission to neonate or partner are ongoing. Both vaccines and antivirals may eventually play a role in prevention of infection.

Nucleoside analogues have been recently introduced in the management of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. They mainly act by inhibition of HBV polymerase activity resulting in decrease of viral replication. They are administered orally, and most of them have an excellent tolerance and safety profile. Lamivudine is the only nucleoside analogue licensed for chronic hepatitis B. It has potent activity against HBV, and a 12-month course achieves clearance of hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) in 20-30% of HBeAg-positive patients and both biochemical and virological remission in more than 65-70% of HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B patients. Famciclovir and ganciclovir are less effective, whereas other nucleoside or nucleotide analogues, such as adefovir, entecavir, and emtricitabine, are currently under evaluation. Prolonged effective antiviral therapy is required for eradication of chronic HBV infection, but long-term treatment with nucleoside analogues has been found to be associated with progressively increasing rates of viral resistance because of emergence of resistant HBV mutant strains. Virological breakthroughs usually develop after the first 6 months of lamivudine monotherapy, and their rate ranges between 15% and 30% at 12 months Lexapro Generic Reviews and exceeds 50% after 3 yr of therapy. Resistant HBV mutant strains harbor point mutations in the HBV polymerase gene and predominantly in the well-conserved YMDD motif. Although resistant HBV strains may have impaired replication capacity compared with the wild HBV, their clinical significance has not been completely clarified yet. No significant biochemical or clinical event may develop in some cases, whereas severe biochemical breakthroughs with or without deterioration of liver function may develop in others. To date, there is no proven effective therapy for the resistant HBV mutant strains, although adefovir and entecavir seem to be interesting candidates.

The present study was conducted using the zosteriform infection model in BALB/c mice. The helicase primase inhibitor, BAY 57-1293 was shown to be highly efficacious in this model. The beneficial effects of therapy were obtained rapidly (within 2 days) although the onset of treatment was delayed for 1 day after virus inoculation. The compound given orally, or intraperitoneally once per day at a dose of 15 mg/kg for 4 successive days was equally effective or superior to a much higher dose of famciclovir (1mg/ml, i.e. approximately 140-200mg/kg/day) given in the drinking water for 7 consecutive days, which, in our hands, is the most effective method for administering famciclovir to mice. In contrast to the vehicle-treated infected mice, all mice that received antiviral therapy looked normal and active with no mortality, no detectable loss of weight and no marked change in ear thickness. BAY 57-1293 and famciclovir reduced the virus titers in the skin to below the level of detection by days 3 and 7 post infection, respectively. In both BAY 57-1293 and famciclovir-treated mice, infectious virus titers in the ear pinna and brainstem remained below the level of detection. Consistent with these findings, BAY 57-1293 also showed a potent antiviral effect in an experiment involving a Risperdal Generic Name small number of severely immunocompromised athymic-nude BALB/c mice.

The herpesviruses continue to produce considerable morbidity in man. Once infected with herpes simplex (HSV), the virus remains dormant within the nervous system and may reactivate if provoked by stress, trauma and/or other factors. To date, there is no cure, but antiviral medication can reduce duration and severity of symptoms and prophylaxis can suppress recurrent episodes of disease. The second-generation guanosine nucleosides, acyclovir and penciclovir, are effective inhibitors with low toxicity; both, however, have relatively low oral bioavailability. Subsequently, the orally bioavailable prodrugs valaciclovir and famciclovir have been introduced. These compounds offer Topamax Usual Dosage high oral bioavailabilty and deliver acyclovir and penciclovir, respectively, to the target cells by means of more convenient dosing schedules. This short review points to recent experience with famciclovir in the management of HSV and varicella-zoster virus.

Antiviral management options for recurrent herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection include daily suppressive and episodic therapy. New data on patient-initiated, short-course, high-dose antiviral therapy provide a new, more convenient option for patients who choose episodic therapy. A head-to-head comparison of suppressive valaciclovir versus famciclovir treatment indicates that both drugs have comparable clinical benefits, but that valaciclovir may have a greater impact on virological end-points. However, a more recent study shows that famciclovir effectively reduces the frequency of Cymbalta Order Online total and subclinical HSV shedding compared with placebo, as well as the percentage of days with genital lesions for subjects with or without a history of genital herpes. This article reports on presentations given at the IHMF Annual Meeting and International Congress of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, both of which took place in late 2006.
