While the concept linking herpes simplex virus (HSV) shedding to transmission is plausible, few data support shedding as a surrogate marker. If shedding is to be used as a surrogate marker in future clinical studies, it must be clear how far shedding must be reduced, and what the shape of the transmission:viral load curve (or transmission:detection frequency curve) is before transmission is reduced. It remains unclear whether peak virus load, frequency of detection of virus, or the area under curve of the time:virus load plot is the critical parameter in the transmission of HSV. This paper reports on an international meeting of experts and a debate at the International Herpes Management Forum (IHMF) Annual Meeting (2004), convened to examine whether a surrogate marker for HSV transmission is necessary, and whether there is any evidence, either in studies involving HSV or other viral infections, to suggest that viral shedding could be used as such a surrogate.

Viral pathogens have emerged as the most important microbial agents having deleterious effects on solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients. Antiviral chemoprophylaxis involves the administration of medications to abort transmission of, avoid reactivation of, or prevent progression to disease from, active viral infection. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the major microbial pathogen having a negative effect on SOT recipients. CMV causes infectious disease syndromes, augments iatrogenic immunosuppression and is commonly associated with opportunistic superinfection. CMV has also been implicated in the pathogenesis of rejection. Chemoprophylactic regimens for CMV have included oral aciclovir (acyclovir) at medium and high doses, intravenous and oral ganciclovir, and the prodrugs valaciclovir (valacyclovir) and valganciclovir. CMV prophylactic strategies should be stratified, with the highest-risk patients receiving the most 'potent' prophylactic regimens. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) reactivation in SOT recipients is more frequent, may become more invasive, takes longer to heal, and has greater potential for dissemination to visceral organs than it does in the immunocompetent host. Prophylactic regimens for CMV are also effective chemoprophylaxis against HSV; in the absence of CMV prophylaxis, aciclovir, valaciclovir or famciclovir should be used as HSV prophylaxis in seropositive recipients. Primary varicella-zoster virus (VZV) after SOT is rare and most commonly seen in the paediatric transplant population because of VZV epidemiology. Zoster occurs in 5-15% of patients, usually after the sixth post-transplant month. Prophylactic regimens for zoster are neither practical nor cost effective after SOT because of the late onset of disease and low proportion of affected individuals. All SOT recipients should receive VZV immune globulin after contact with either varicella or zoster. Epstein-Barr virus has its most significant effect in SOT as the precipitating factor in the development of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders. Antiviral agents that could be effective are the same as those used for CMV, but indications for and effectiveness of prophylaxis are poorly established. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are important pathogens in the SOT population as indications for transplantation. So-called 'prophylaxis' for recurrent HBV and HCV after liver transplantation is controversial, suppressive rather than preventive, and potentially lifelong. Influenza infection after SOT is acquired by person-to-person contact. During epidemic periods of influenza, transplant populations experience a relatively high frequency of infection, and influenza may affect immunosuppressed SOT recipients more adversely than immunocompetent individuals. Antiviral medications for prevention of influenza are administered as post-exposure prophylaxis to SOT recipients, in addition to yearly vaccine, in circumstances such as influenza epidemics and nosocomial outbreaks, and after exposure to a symptomatic individual during 'flu season'.

famvir 250mg tablet

Until recently aciclovir has been the only licensed drug for the treatment of herpes zoster. A number of new drugs have emerged over the past few years which offered the potential for improved efficacy or ease of administration. With the completion of the first efficacy trials for each of these agents it has become apparent that, whilst less frequent dosing can he accomplished, it is not easy to significantly improve on the efficacy of aciclovir. Increasing age, the presence of prodromal pain and more severe pain at presentation have, however, been found to predispose to a longer duration of pain. Taking cessation of pain as the single most important parameter, at least for the older immunocompetent population as a whole, only valaciclovir has, to date, been shown to be superior to standard therapy with aciclovir. This review utilises primarily intent-to-treat data to illustrate the relative efficacy of the different therapies.

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) variant strains may develop during therapy for chronic infection with the nucleoside analog 2',3'-dideoxy-3'-thiacytidine (3TC). HBV mutants result from isoleucine (I) or valine (V) substitutions in the methionine (M) of the YMDD motif in the viral reverse-transcriptase catalytic domain. In addition, other mutations in the reverse-transcriptase "B domain" involving either a phenylalanine (F)-to-leucine (L) at amino acid 501 (F501L) or an L-to-M substitution at amino acid 515 (L515M) have been observed during 3TC and Famciclovir therapy as well. To determine the biologic consequences of these mutations on viral replication, variant viral genomes were constructed and transiently transfected into hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and HEK 293 human embryo kidney-derived cell lines. In transiently transfected HCC cells, the viruses bearing the YI/VDD or F501L mutations had greatly impaired replication as compared to wild-type virus, whereas the virus carrying the L515M substitution showed the least defect. Double mutants with the L515M substitution showed intermediate defect between the YI/VDD or F501L and the L515M single-mutant strains. In contrast, when transfected into HEK 293 cells, the viruses bearing the YI/VDD or L515M mutation replicated as wild-type. However, under conditions of deoxynucleotide depletion produced by hydroxyurea treatment of HEK 293 cells, all mutants but not the wild-type virus exhibited a reduced replication phenotype similar to that observed in HCC cells. In both HCC and HEK 293 cells, the mutant viruses carrying the F501L substitution showed a decreased pregenomic RNA encapsidation level, suggesting that the defect in HBV DNA synthesis occurs at the RNA packaging level. These findings show that 3TC and Famciclovir selected mutations alter the properties of the HBV reverse transcriptase, resulting in impaired viral replication within the cell.

famvir reviews

In the past decade, significant progress has been achieved in the battle against hepatitis B virus. In addition to the immunomodulating agents such as interferon-alpha and thymosin, many novel antiviral agents have been discovered, among which nucleoside analogues are the mainstay. New-generation compounds such as 3TC and famciclovir have shown promise in the treatment of patients chronically infected by this virus, and are on the line for approval. However, viral rebound after cessation of therapy still remains a major problem. Additionally, the reports on the drug resistance to these antiviral agents suggest that combination therapy will be the eventual strategy (Bartholomew et al., 1997; Tipples et al., 1996). Therefore, developments of safe and effective antiviral agents which do not cross-resist with currently available antiviral drugs are still much needed.

Penciclovir (9-[2-hydroxy-1-(hydroxymethyl)-ethoxymethyl]guanine [PCV]), lamivudine ([-]-beta-L-2',3'-dideoxy-3'-thiacytidine [3TC]), and adefovir (9-[2-phosphonylmethoxyethyl]-adenine [PMEA]) are potent inhibitors of hepatitis B virus (HBV) replication. Lamivudine has recently received approval for clinical use against chronic human HBV infection, and both PCV and PMEA have undergone clinical trials against HBV in their respective prodrug forms (famciclovir and adefovir dipivoxil [bis-(POM)-PMEA]). Since multidrug combinations are likely to be used to control HBV infection, investigation of potential interactions between PCV, 3TC, and PMEA is important. Primary duck hepatocyte cultures which were either acutely or congenitally infected with the duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV) were used to investigate in vitro interactions between PCV, 3TC, and PMEA. Here we show that the anti-DHBV effects of all the combinations containing PCV, 3TC, and PMEA are greater than that of each of the individual components and that their combined activities are approximately additive or synergistic. These results may underestimate the potential in vivo usefulness of PMEA-containing combinations, since there is evidence that PMEA has immunomodulatory activity and, at least in the duck model of chronic HBV infection, is capable of inhibiting DHBV replication in cells other than hepatocytes, the latter being unaffected by treatment with either PCV or 3TC. Further investigation of the antiviral activities of these drug combinations is therefore required, particularly since each of the component drugs is already in clinical use.

The ability of prior infection from one elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV) type to protect against clinical or lethal infection from others remains an important question. This report describes viremia and subsequent shedding of EEHV1B in two juvenile 4-yr-old Asian elephants within 3 wk or 2 mo following significant infections caused by the rarely seen EEHV4. High levels of EEHV1B shedding were detected in the first elephant prior to emergence of infection and viremia in the second animal. The EEHV1B virus associated with both infections was famvir buy identical to the strain causing infection in two herd mates previously. High EEHV viremia correlated with leukopenia and thrombocytopenia, which was followed by leukocytosis and thrombocytosis when clinical signs started to resolve. The observations from these cases should be beneficial for helping other institutions monitor and treat elephants infected with EEHV1, the most common virus associated with lethal hemorrhagic disease.

The standard treatment of an HBeAg-positive, HBV-DNA-positive chronic hepatitis B patient is a 16-week course of 10 MU alpha-interferon thrice weekly. However, the overall therapeutic effect, as measured by disappearance of the HBe-antigen, is estimated at 30%. Improvement is possible by better selection of the patient, modifications in the treatment schedule, or combination therapy. In the selection of possible candidates for combination therapy, the second generation nucleoside analogues with activity against hepatitis B are good candidates. In clinical studies, lamivudine and famciclovir are used, both of which can reduce serum HBV-DNA to levels below 1 pg/ml within weeks.

The effects of famciclovir (FCV) and valaciclovir (VACV) were compared in a cutaneous infection model for herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). The compounds were administered orally from day 1 to day 5 postinfection. Both Indocin Reviews compounds reduced local inflammation and virus replication in the skin. FCV markedly reduced mortality and virus replication in the nervous system. On the cessation of therapy after 5 days, when the levels of infectious virus in the tissues were reduced to below the level of detection, there followed a rebound of virus replication in the ganglia and brain stems of mice that had been treated with VACV. The recurrence of infection in the brain stem occurred on three separate occasions. No such recurrences were observed following FCV treatment. When ganglia were explanted from survivors 6 weeks later, latent virus was shown to be reactivated in all 10 of 10 control, untreated mice. The number of mice whose ganglia yielded virus was reduced to 60% in mice that had been treated with VACV, whereas no mice that had been treated with FCV had evidence of latent infection by this test.

Chronic herpes simplex virus (CHSV) and chronic varicella zoster virus (CVZV) are defined as atypical mucocutaneous wart-like and/or ulcerative HSV or VZV infections, persisting for at least 1 month. Both are commonly associated with HIV infection and may occasionally present with other types of immunosuppression. CHSV and CVZV occur despite the immune restoration effect of highly active antiretroviral therapy for HIV. The clinical polymorphism of CHSV and CVZV makes recognition difficult. Histology, immunohistology, PCR and viral culture all help to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment is frequently complicated by resistance to thymidine kinase (TK)-dependent antivirals, including acyclovir, valacyclovir and famciclovir. Viral culture remains an essential tool for antiviral drug susceptibility testing. Therapeutic alternatives include non-TK-dependent antivirals, such as foscarnet Aricept Positive Reviews or cidofovir, which directly target viral DNA polymerase. With few exceptions, CHSV and CVZV infections do not constitute significant risk factors for disseminated cutaneous or systemic infection. This review compares the similarities of and differences between CHSV and CVZV infections.

The natural history of liver disease caused by persistent infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) can be quite variable. The wide range of liver injury suggests a great degree of variability in the interaction between the replicating virus and possible immune responses. At the current time, Interferon is the most extensively studied antiviral agent for chronic hepatitis B, but because of the substantial number of nonresponders, relapses and side events, it Sinemet Dosage continues the search of alternative therapies. Many nucleoside analogues agents have been found to have antiviral activity in vitro or in vivo. The second generation nucleoside analogues with the most promising potential at present include Famciclovir.

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.

Herpes labialis is a common skin infective condition, worldwide, which is primarily caused by HSV-1. Recurrent episodes of herpes labialis, also known as cold sores, can be frequent, painful, long-lasting and disfiguring for infected patients. At present, there are two types of antivirals for the treatment of herpes labialis, topical and oral, which are available over the counter or as prescription-only. The aim of antiviral therapy is to block viral replication to enable shortening the duration of symptoms and to accelerate healing of the lesions associated with herpes labialis. This review examines the evidence for the effectiveness of current topical and oral antivirals in the management of recurrent episodes of herpes labialis. In most countries, oral antivirals for herpes labialis are available as prescription-only. However, in early 2010, the oral antiviral famciclovir was reclassified from prescription-only medicine to pharmacist-controlled status in New Zealand. The benefits and risks associated with moving an antiviral therapy for herpes labialis from prescription-only to pharmacist-controlled status are reviewed here, and the implications for patients, general physicians and pharmacists are considered.

The frequent occurrence of genital herpes continues to be a serious clinical problem. Although not life threatening, the physical symptoms of the disease, and the ensuing psychosocial complications, can be overwhelming to patients. The life cycle of the herpes simplex virus is complex, comprising multiple stages. Following infection, the virus establishes life-long latency in its host and can reactivate at any time as a recurrent infection. Successful management of genital herpes simplex infections involves patient education and psychological support, as well as antiviral agents. The antiviral agent famciclovir has been shown to shorten the course and decrease the severity of episodes of recurrent genital herpes. In addition, famciclovir has been shown to be effective in suppressing recurrent genital herpes. A review of the clinical experience with famciclovir in the treatment of genital herpes is presented.

Epstein-Barr virus is an ubiquitous member of the human herpes virus family. A specific antigen structure of the Epstein-Barr virus was discovered in the last decade. It was possible to diagnose some unusual clinical manifestations of EBV infections and its clinical course by different serologic analyses (immunofluorescent tests, immunoenzyme assay and polymerase chain reaction). This is very important in cases of atypical primary infections (hepatitis, meningoencephalitis), chronic mononucleosis and lymphoproliferative disorders and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Famciclovir, a new antiviral agent (peroral form of penciclovir) may play an important role in the therapy of these infections.
