The presence of herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) shedding episodes correlates with transmission to sexual partners and neonates, and some episodes correlate with disease manifestations. HSV-2-targeted guanosine analogues are effective when given on a prophylactic basis, but do not completely eliminate recurrences, asymptomatic shedding or transmission. We sought to describe the impact of twice-daily aciclovir and famciclovir on shedding episodes.

We have established practical synthetic methods for penciclovir (PCV, 1) and famciclovir (FCV, 2) from N2-acetyl-7-benzylguanine (NAc7BnG, 3) and 6,6-dimethyl-5, 7-dioxaspiro[2.5]octane-4,8-dione (4)--the latter being a more easily prepared cyclic precursor of the diacetate side chain (5) used in the conventional process. The coupling of 4 with 3 proceeded regioselectively at the N9 position of guanine in good yield. The coupling product was then successfully transformed into the known antiviral agents in a short number of steps.

Famciclovir was administered orally or rectally in accordance with an incomplete crossover design. Three treatment groups, each comprising 4 elephants, received single doses of famciclovir (5 mg/kg, PO, or 5 or 15 mg/kg, rectally); there was a minimum 12-week washout period between subsequent famciclovir administrations. Serial blood samples were collected after each administration. Samples were analyzed for famciclovir and penciclovir with a validated liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy assay.

Herpes simplex virus is one of the most common causes of genital ulcer disease worldwide. Herpes simplex virus-2 is the more common cause of genital herpes, a chronic infection that is characterised by periodic reactivation, with the capacity to produce recurrent symptomatic disease in the host (e.g., vesicular eruption), as well as intermittent asymptomatic shedding. Relapsing episodes may be physically and psychologically distressing. Shedding accounts for the majority of cases of transmission of genital herpes to sexual partners. Pregnant women who are shedding may transmit the virus at the time of delivery, with severe and potentially fatal consequences to the baby. Famciclovir, a synthetic acyclic guanine derivative, is the prodrug of penciclovir, which demonstrates in vitro antiviral activity against various types of herpes virus, including herpes simplex virus-2. Its pharmacokinetics allow for administration in a convenient dosing regimen compared with acyclovir, which may improve compliance. Clinical studies have demonstrated its efficacy in the episodic treatment of relapses, with the most recent report demonstrating its efficacy and tolerance as a single-day treatment. It is also efficacious and well tolerated for the suppression of frequently recurring episodes. These results have been demonstrated in various patient populations, including immunocompetent patients and those infected with HIV. Famciclovir is well tolerated, with an adverse events profile similar to placebo.

Herpes genitalis is one of the most common viral sexually transmitted diseases in the world, with an estimated seroprevalence in the US of greater than 20%. Two viruses of the same family cause herpes genitalis: herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. After the resolution of primary infection, the virus persists in the nerve roots of the sacral plexus, often causing recurrent (though generally less severe) outbreaks. These outbreaks, as well as the infectious potential to the patient's sexual partners, results in significant psychological stress on the patient, and has a tremendous negative impact on QOL. Current treatment modalities may result in a reduction in the number of outbreaks and viral shedding, but no cure exists. Although studies have clearly demonstrated the negative impact of recurrent genital herpes on QOL, an assessment scale specific to herpes was not developed until recently. Earlier studies indicated that patients did not perceive a significant benefit from episodic treatment with antivirals, but studies using the Recurrent Genital Herpes Quality of Life Questionnaire (RGHQoL) have now demonstrated that suppressive antiviral therapy improves quality of life in patients with frequent recurrences of genital herpes. However, not all patients with recurrent genital herpes need suppressive therapy, and proposed factors to consider include frequency of recurrence, physical and psychological distress caused by recurrences, and the potential for transmission to the patient's sexual partner. Newer therapeutic modalities, including the topical immune response modifier resiquimod and herpes vaccines, may eventually be shown to further decrease the psychological morbidity of recurrent genital herpes.

the prognosis of acute retinal necrosis syndrome or RNA is usually severe. The patient should be treated as early as possible in order to limit bilateralization and the occurrence of complications. This study confirms that oral antiviral (valacyclovir, famciclovir and valganciclovir) and intravitreal therapies without initial intravenous treatment are an effective treatment for RNA.

Varicella-zoster virus has developed a complex strategy that allows it to remain latent in the body and avoid destruction by the immune system. Although varicella and zoster have been recognized since antiquity, several new clinical syndromes--including chronic chickenpox with persistent verrucous lesions and disseminated varicella without skin lesions--have been noted in patients with AIDS. Acyclovir has been the mainstay for treating severe varicella-zoster virus infections; however, newer antiviral agents, including valacyclovir and famciclovir, have expanded therapeutic options for treating adults with herpes zoster. The recently licensed live attenuated vaccine for varicella-zoster virus is effective in preventing chickenpox, and the vaccine's ability to stimulate immunity in seropositive adults suggests a promising strategy with which to modify the course of herpes zoster.

Oral famciclovir was initiated in a health care worker immediately after an accidental percutaneous injury involving a needle freshly removed from a patient's herpes labialis vesicles. In follow-up, the health care worker remained seronegative for herpes simplex I and II antibodies (IgG and IgM) and did not develop herpetic whitlow, supporting the potential role of famciclovir in the prevention of herpetic whitlow in a health care setting.

Over the past several years there have been many advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cutaneous infectious diseases. This review focuses on the three major topics of interest in the geriatric population: herpes zoster and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), onychomycosis, and recent advances in antibacterial therapy. Herpes zoster in adults is caused by reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) that causes chickenpox in children. For many years acyclovir was the gold standard of antiviral therapy for the treatment of patients with herpes zoster. Famciclovir and valacyclovir, newer antivirals for herpes zoster, offer less frequent dosing. PHN refers to pain lasting > or = 2 months after an acute attack of herpes zoster. The pain may be constant or intermittent and may occur spontaneously or be caused by seemingly innocuous stimuli such as a light touch. Treatment of established PHN through pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapy will be discussed. In addition, therapeutic strategies to prevent PHN will be reviewed. These include the use of oral corticosteroids, nerve blocks, and treatment with standard antiviral therapy. Onychomycosis, or tinea unguium, is caused by dermatophytes in the majority of cases, but can also be caused by Candida and nondermatophyte molds. Onychomycosis is found more frequently in the elderly and in more males than females. There are four types of onychomycosis: distal subungual onychomycosis, proximal subungual onychomycosis, white superficial onychomycosis, and candidal onychomycosis. Over the past several years, new treatments for this disorder have emerged which offer shorter courses of therapy and greater efficacy than previous therapies. The treatment of bacterial skin and skin structure infections in the elderly is an important issue. There has been an alarming increase in the incidence of gram-positive infections, including resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and drug-resistant pneumococci. While vancomycin has been considered the drug of last defense against gram-positive multidrug-resistant bacteria, the late 1980s saw an increase in vancomycin-resistant bacteria, including vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). More recently, strains of vancomycin-intermediate resistant S. aureus (VISA) have been isolated. Gram-positive bacteria, such as S. aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes are often the cause of skin and skin structure infections, ranging from mild pyodermas to complicated infections including postsurgical wound infections, severe carbunculosis, and erysipelas. With limited treatment options, it has become critical to identify antibiotics with novel mechanisms of activity. Several new drugs have emerged as possible therapeutic alternatives, including linezolid and quinupristin/dalfopristin.

Famciclovir (FCV, the oral form of penciclovir, PCV) is a potent antiviral agent of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and is currently in phase III clinical trials. In this review, we examine the outcome of FCV treatment in preventing recurrent HBV in patients post transplantation. Resistance to FCV has now been documented in this setting, in which reduced sensitivity to FCV was associated with mutations upstream from the conserved 'YMDD' motif in the HBV polymerase gene. These mutations are in a region which has been designated as the B domain in RNA-dependent polymerases. To understand these mutations we have developed a model of the catalytic regions of the HBV polymerase and located mutations selected during antiviral treatment on this model.

Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a painful and refractory complication of herpes zoster. Treatments are either partially or totally ineffective for many people with PHN. Antiviral agents, used at the time of the rash, are one of the best-established approaches that may prevent the development of PHN.

In immunocompetent patients, HSV is controlled rapidly by the human host's immune system, and recurrent lesions are small and short lived. When treated with antiviral agents, these patients rarely develop resistance to these drugs. In contrast immunocompromised patients might not be able to control HSV infection. Thus, frequent and severe reactivations are often seen and might lead to fatal herpetic encephalitis or disseminated HSV infection. Treatment in these patients is limited because immunocompromised hosts often develop severe herpes disease refractory to antiviral drug therapy. It is therefore imperative that physicians develop regimens to deal with both receptive and refractory HSV disease. The following treatment protocol (modified from Balfour and colleagues) might serve as a guide until further investigation of new drugs is performed. In all patients standard oral ACV therapy should be initiated at a dose of 200 mg orally, five times a day for the first 3 to 5 days. Prior to treatment, cultures the lesions should be obtained to verify HSV etiology. If the response is poor, the dose of oral ACV should be increased to 800 mg five times a day. If no response seen after 5 to 7 days, it is unlikely that the lesion will respond to intravenous ACV (or chemically and structurally related drugs such as VCV or famciclovir), so an alternative regimen must be assigned. First, repeat cultures for vital, fungal, and bacterial pathogens must be performed. In addition, ACV susceptibility studies should be ordered, if available. If the mucocutaneous lesion is accessible for topical treatment, TFT (as ophthalmic solution) should be applied to the area three to four times a day until the lesion is completely healed. If the lesion is inaccessible or if the response to TFT is poor, therapy with intravenous foscarnet should be given for 10 days or until complete resolution of the lesions. The dosage of foscarnet should be 40 milligrams per kilogram three times per day or 60 milligrams per kilogram twice daily. If foscarnet fails to achieve clinical clearing, consideration should be given to use of intravenous cidofovir (or application of compounded 1% to 3% topical cidofovir ointment). Vidarabine is reserved for situations in which all of these therapies fail. If lesions reoccur in the same location following clearing, the patient should started on high-dose oral ACV (800 mg, five times daily) or intravenous foscarnet (40 mg/kg tid or 60 mg/kg bid) as soon as possible. When lesions occur in a different location, the patient should be treated initially with standard doses of oral ACV (200 mg, five times daily) and the above protocol should be followed should there be clinical failure. In the future, new treatment options for patients with documented HSV resistance will be important in reducing the clinical impact of HSV.

Recurrent hepatitis B infection after orthotopic liver transplantation remains problematic despite prophylaxis with hepatitis B immune globulin (anti-HBs IgG). Recently, famciclovir (an oral nucleoside analog) has been shown to have potent antiviral activity against hepatitis B in vitro as well as in patients with chronic hepatitis B. We present two patients who developed recurrent hepatitis B after orthotopic liver transplantation and were treated with famciclovir, 500 mg t.i.d. Both patients subsequently responded with marked improvement in biochemical liver tests and histology, with subsequent loss of hepatitis B surface antigen. Famciclovir is a useful agent in the treatment of hepatitis B in the liver transplant recipient.

Prophylaxis of Recurrent Hepatitis B. 1. Although standard prophylaxis with antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen immunoglobulins (HBIG) is effective, it is difficult to administer and must be administered indefinitely. 2. Preemptive therapy with lamivudine reduces the early risk for recurrence after transplantation, but maintenance with either famciclovir or lamivudine has been ineffective in sustaining remission. 3. The combination of preemptive lamivudine with HBIG prophylaxis may be the most effective treatment to prevent hepatitis B virus reinfection. Treatment of Recurrent Hepatitis B. 1. Interferon-alpha, ganciclovir, and famciclovir have not been helpful. 2. Lamivudine appears promising, but its long-term efficacy is unproven; in immunosuppressed transplant recipients, the rate of emergence of YMDD mutants is high and accelerated, and their emergence is aggravated by consistent liver morbidity.

BAY 57-1293 represents a new class of potent inhibitors of herpes simplex virus (HSV) that target the virus helicase primase complex. 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 small number of severely immunocompromised athymic-nude BALB/c mice.

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 buy famvir . 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.

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 buy famvir 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.

Herpes simplex ocular infection is the leading cause of infectious corneal blindness in the United States and presents a frequent challenge to ophthalmologists. The epithelial infections are usually readily controlled with trifluridine or vidarabine, but clinical resistance may be emerging, and host toxicity remains a problem in chronic cases. Acyclovir offers an alternative, and the oral form appears to be an effective antiviral prophylaxis in stromal keratitis and post-penetrating keratoplasty, as well as a treatment for epithelial infections in patients where administration of topical therapy is difficult. Valacyclovir and perhaps famciclovir may provide similar efficacy as acyclovir at reduced doses. In addition, better control of inflammation with potent steroids used at the appropriate phases of HSV infection can minimize scarring and vascularization. Newer agents attempt to provide more specific therapy for both the infectious and inflammatory components of HSV ocular buy famvir infections.

Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection imposes an enormous public health burden. In patients with chronic hepatitis and high levels of viral replication, inhibitors of the virus polymerase can reduce serum titre and favourably affect the inflammatory process in the liver. Lamivudine, a reverse transcriptase inhibitor, is the first nucleoside analogue to be licensed for treatment of chronic HBV infection. Treatment effects a rapid and profound decrease of serum virus titre, with attendant clinical benefit. Unfortunately drug buy famvir -resistant species may emerge after 6 months of suppressive therapy. Lamivudine-resistant species have specific amino acid substitutions in the HBV-encoded polymerase. Emergence of these species is frequently associated with loss of clinical benefit. Published data suggest that lamivudine-resistant species exhibit cross-resistance to famciclovir, thereby limiting the potential use of famciclovir with lamivudine as combination therapy. Adefovir is under clinical evaluation for treatment of wild-type and lamivudine-resistant HBV. Preliminary data suggest that adefovir achieves potent inhibition of both species. Studies of drug resistance have followed hot-on-the-heels of the development of potent antiviral therapy for chronic HBV.

The animal model of necrotic hepatitis caused by HSV-1 infection buy famvir in juvenile mice was used to compare the efficacies of the oral antiherpes agents famciclovir (FCV), valaciclovir (VACV) and brivudin (BVDU). The experimental infection allows the measurement of viral replication in the liver by macroscopic lesions and the evaluation of mortality from encephalitis. Mice intravenously inoculated with a highly virulent clinical HSV-1 isolate were orally treated by gavage over a period of 3 days starting on day 2 post infection. The reference drug acyclovir (ACV) was administered subcutaneously. Necrotic hepatitis was significantly (p < 0.01) reduced by treatment with FCV, VACV and ACV at a dose of 50 mg/kg per day divided into 3 doses. No significant effect was achieved with BVDU at 200 mg/kg per day. Treatment with FCV at 50 mg/kg per day, ACV at 100 mg/kg per day, and VACV at 200 mg/kg per day significantly (p < 0.001) decreased mortality in mice. BVDU treatment at 200 mg/kg per day did not reduce mortality but significantly prolonged (p < 0.05) the survival time.

Famciclovir significantly reduced duration but not incidence of PHN in one placebo-controlled trial of 419 patients. Valacyclovir significantly reduced duration but not incidence of PHN in one acyclovir-controlled trial of 1141 patients. Steroids had no effect on PHN. Amitriptyline for 90 days reduced pain incidence at 6 months in one placebo-controlled trial of 80 patients. A single trial of percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS) in 50 patients suggested a decrease in pain incidence at 3 and 6 months compared with famciclovir.

Famciclovir, the well absorbed oral pro-drug of penciclovir, is effective in the treatment of herpes zoster when given three times daily. Because the intracellular half-life of penciclovir triphosphate in varicella-zoster virus (VZV)-infected cells (7h) is considerably longer than that of aciclovir triphosphate (1h), it may be Vermox Dosing possible to administer famciclovir less frequently than three times daily for herpes zoster: aciclovir is administered five times daily.

Reactivation of hepatitis B infection (HBV) is known to occur in liver graft recipients and in chronic carriers of the surface antigen of HBV who receive immunosuppressive therapy. The use of hepatitis B immune globulin alone or in combination with Coreg Overdose antiviral agents such as lamivudine, adefovir, tenofovir, entecavir, famciclovir, ganciclovir, as prophylaxis in HBV liver transplants, has been well documented. In terms of HBV positive carriers undergoing cytotoxic chemotherapy, the preemptive use of nucleoside or nucleotide analogues seems to be effective. Monotherapy or combination of antiviral drugs, as well as the optimal duration of HBV prophylaxis, is to be determined.

Both herpes simplex virus (HSV) type I and HSV type 2 can cause genital herpes. Because the infection is chronic, genital herpes has become the most common sexually transmitted disease among women. The prevalence of the HSV-2 antibody among women in the United States is Prandin Tab 1mg 26%, although genital herpes has been diagnosed in only a small proportion (10-25%) of individuals with HSV-2 antibodies. Herpes simplex virus type I is becoming a more frequent cause of genital herpes, especially among young women. Overall,HSV-I seroprevalence in the United States is estimated at 67%, although sero-logic data do not provide information about site of infection. Recent advances in diagnostic methods and therapeutic options are likely to change the management of genital herpes.

Herpes genitalis is one of the most common viral sexually transmitted diseases in the world, with an estimated seroprevalence in the US of greater than 20%. Two viruses of the same family cause herpes genitalis: herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. After the resolution of primary infection, the virus persists in the nerve roots of the sacral plexus, often causing recurrent (though generally less severe) outbreaks. These outbreaks, as well as the infectious potential to the patient's sexual partners, results in significant psychological stress on the patient, and has a tremendous negative impact on QOL. Current treatment modalities may result in a reduction in the number of outbreaks and viral shedding, but no cure exists. Although studies have clearly demonstrated the negative impact of recurrent genital herpes on QOL, an assessment scale specific to herpes was not developed until recently. Earlier studies indicated Zovirax Topical Dosage that patients did not perceive a significant benefit from episodic treatment with antivirals, but studies using the Recurrent Genital Herpes Quality of Life Questionnaire (RGHQoL) have now demonstrated that suppressive antiviral therapy improves quality of life in patients with frequent recurrences of genital herpes. However, not all patients with recurrent genital herpes need suppressive therapy, and proposed factors to consider include frequency of recurrence, physical and psychological distress caused by recurrences, and the potential for transmission to the patient's sexual partner. Newer therapeutic modalities, including the topical immune response modifier resiquimod and herpes vaccines, may eventually be shown to further decrease the psychological morbidity of recurrent genital herpes.

Approximately 20% to 40% of the population experience recurrent herpes labialis caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). Benicar Overdose Since there is no cure, patients typically use antiviral therapy to treat outbreaks as they occur. A large proportion of patients self-administer topical antiviral therapies at the onset of symptoms, but lack of efficacy, frequent dosing, and inconvenient long-term treatment regimens have made the use of oral antiviral therapies more common. Valacyclovir is currently the only oral antiviral approved for the treatment of herpes labialis in immunocompetent individuals. The pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic profile of famciclovir suggests that it could be utilized for episodic treatment for immunocompetent individuals as well.

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 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 Coumadin 6mg Tab 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.

In herpes zoster infection, neurological complications may be overlooked because pain is a more prominent symptom and because peripheral polyneuropathy associated with weakness is rare. A 57-year-old male visited our hospital, complaining of pain and skin eruptions on the right flank. He was diagnosed as having herpes zoster and the symptoms were alleviated by administration of acyclovir for a week. After three weeks, the herpes zoster relapsed. He was re-admitted and diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and imatinib mesylate was prescribed for five weeks. Ten weeks after the onset of herpes zoster, bilateral foot drops and numbness of the right foot dorsum developed. Through an electrodiagnostic study, he was diagnosed as having peripheral polyneuropathy that was suspected to be caused by neural invasion by varicella zoster virus. After administration of famciclovir, not only the pain but also the neurologic symptoms improved. We herein report a case of peripheral polyneuropathy that was supposed to be related to herpes zoster. Cefixime Dose Uses

Agents available to treat herpesvirus infections include idoxuridine, trifluridine, vidarabine and acyclovir for the topical treatment of herpetic eye infections; vidarabine and acyclovir for the systemic (intravenous) treatment of herpes encephalitis; acyclovir for the topical and systemic (oral) treatment of genital herpes; acyclovir for the systemic (intravenous, oral) treatment of HSV or varicella-zoster (VZV) infections in immunosuppressed patients; brivudin for the systemic (oral) treatment of HSV-1 or VZV infections in immunosuppressed patients; and ganciclovir and foscarnet for the systemic (intravenous) treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in AIDS patients. Brivudin is also effective in the treatment of herpetic eye infections that no longer respond to idoxuridine, trifluridine, vidarabine or acyclovir; and foscarnet is effective in the treatment of infections with acyclovir-resistant, thymidine kinase-deficient (TK-) HSV or VZV mutants. Other antiviral agents considered for use in herpesvirus infections include brovavir, penciclovir (and its prodrug famciclovir), desciclovir (a prodrug of acyclovir), bishydroxymethylcyclobutylguanine (BHCG) and, in particular, 1-(3-hydroxy-2-phosphonylmethoxypropyl)cytosine (HPMPC). The latter is more active than either acyclovir or ganciclovir in the chemotherapy and prophylaxis of various HSV-1, HSV-2, TK- HSV, VZV or CMV infections in animal models.

A 56-year-old man with hepatitis B-related polyarteritis nodosa presented with symptoms correlating to high levels of HBV DNA. The patient did not respond to treatment with steroids (prednisolone started with 100 mg daily) and two courses of interferon alfa-2b (5 x 10(6) units 3 times per week for 6 months). Therefore, a combination therapy of interferon alfa-2b (5 x 10(6) units 3 times per week) and famciclovir (500 mg tid, orally) was started; 5 mg daily prednisolone was given at this time. Under this regimen HBV DNA rapidly declined, with a reduction of 79% after the first week (HBV DNA 53 pg/ml), and 88% after the second week (29 pg/ml), accompanied by a significant improvement in clinical symptoms. After 1 year of famciclovir treatment, HBeAg-anti-HBe seroconversion was noted; HBsAg still remained positive. Long-term famciclovir therapy has been continued at a reduced dose of 125 mg tid for 3 years now. HBV DNA values have been stable below 100 pg/ml, transaminases have normalized and clinical symptoms of polyarteritis nodosa have disappeared.
