An assay method for the determination of acyclovir from pharmaceutical preparations has been developed for assessment of product quality utilising high-performance liquid chromatography. The chromatographic conditions comprised a reversed-phase C18 column (250 x 4.6 mm i.d.) with a mobile phase of acetonitrile-20 mmol l(-1) aqueous ammonium acetate buffer of pH 4.5 (40:60). The flow rate was 0.8 ml min(-1) and UV detection was used at 250 nm. Calibration graph was linear in the range 1.98-59.4 microg ml(-1). The method has been validated according to current guidelines including assay of pharmacopoeial standard tablets. Recoveries ranged from 96.64 to 99.53%. The exipients present in the tablets did not interfere with the method.

We report two CMV naïve children who received deceased donor renal transplants from a CMV IgG-negative single donor. CMV IgG in both recipients and the donor were negative immediately prior to transplant. Both recipients had early recurrences of their original disease in their transplants, requiring multiple sessions of plasmapheresis. All blood products used were leukoreduced or CMV seronegative. A few days post-transplant, both recipients developed significant positive CMV viremia. Both required initiation of oral valganciclovir. Case 1 responded to oral valganciclovir only while the case 2 had a delayed response to it and hence required intravenous ganciclovir with good response. When checked retrospectively, CMV IgM in the donor was positive along with positive CMV DNA PCR from the white cells. Here we describe a very unusual scenario of CMV transmission in two pediatric renal transplant recipients from a single donor during the CMV window period.

A Markov model was developed using a randomized, placebo-controlled trial of valaciclovir prophylaxis, together with a published epidemiological study and national renal transplant registry data. The model's population was stratified into two risk groups by donor/recipient cytomegalovirus (CMV) serostatus at transplantation: donor-positive/recipient-negative (D+R-) and recipient-positive (R+) patients. The model estimated costs and health outcomes over a 30-yr period from the perspective of Australian health care providers.

We found a significant difference among all 3 groups in numbers of cytomegaloviral disease episodes in the 1st year after transplantation. The number of rejection episodes in the 3 groups during the 1st post-transplant year gradually decreased from Group 1 to Group 3. We identified no statistically significant benefit in the time to BOS occurrence or in actuarial survival.

Human herpesvirus virus type 7 (HHV-7) is a T-lymphotropic herpesvirus which uses the CD4 receptor as main receptor to infect its target cells. Measuring the decrease of CD4 expression during HHV-7 infection is a convenient and accurate method to monitor the efficacy of antiviral agents against HHV-7 infection. Different classes of compounds, such as heparin, pentosan polysulfate (PS), dextran sulfate (DS), aurintricarboxylic acid (ATA), phosphonoformic acid (PFA), 9-(2-phosphonylmethoxyethyl)adenine (PMEA), 2-amino-7-[(1,3-dihydroxy-2-propoxy) methyl] purine (S2242), polyvinylalcohol sulfate (PVAS) and the co-polymer of vinylalcohol sulfate with acrylic acid (PAVAS), acyclovir (ACV), ganciclovir (GCV), penciclovir (PCV), brivudin (BVDU), cidofovir (HPMPC), lobucavir, (R)-9-[4-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)butyl]guanine] (H2G), (R)-9-(2-phosphonylmethoxypropyl)adenine (PMPA) and sorivudine (BVaraU), were evaluated for their anti-HHV-7 activity in the SupT1 T cell line and in purified CD4+ T lymphocytes. Antiviral activity was monitored by inhibition of: (i) CD4 expression down-regulation; (ii) giant cell formation and (iii) apoptosis induction. In general, PS, DS, PVAS, PAVAS, ATA, PFA, PMEA, S2242, lobucavir and HPMPC had comparable anti-HHV-7 activity in the two cell lines, irrespective of the parameters followed to monitor antiviral activity. One of the exceptions was heparin which had an IC50 of 9.6 microg/ml in SupT1 cells and >250 microg/ml in CD4+ T lymphocytes. The compounds PCV, GCV, H2G and PMPA showed some activity in CD4+ T lymphocytes, but not in SupT1 cells. ACV, BVDU and BVaraU did not show activity in either cell system. None of the chemokines tested, such as platelet factor-4 (PF-4), eotaxin, stromal cell-derived factor 1alpha(SDF-1alpha) and RANTES, had detectable activity against HHV-7. In contrast, the HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein, gp120, and the two anti-CD4 mAbs, 13B8-2 and OKT4, were clearly active against HHV-7 infection.

Moderate-quality evidence from randomised controlled trials showed no additional benefit from the combination of antivirals with corticosteroids compared to corticosteroids alone for the treatment of Bell's palsy of various degrees of severity. Moderate-quality evidence showed a small but just significant benefit of combination therapy compared with corticosteroids alone in severe Bell's palsy. Corticosteroids alone were more effective than antivirals alone and antivirals plus corticosteroids were more effective than placebo or no treatment. There was no benefit from antivirals alone over placebo.Moderate-quality evidence indicated that the combination of antivirals and corticosteroids reduced sequelae of Bell's palsy compared with corticosteroids alone.We found no significant increase in adverse events from the use of antivirals compared with either placebo or corticosteroids, based on moderate-quality evidence.

N-methanocarbathymidine ((N)-MCT), a thymidine analog incorporating a pseudosugar with a fixed Northern conformation, exhibits potent antiherpetic activity against herpes simplex virus types 1 (HSV-1) and 2 (HSV-2). This study contrasts the metabolic pathway of (N)-MCT and the well-known antiherpetic agent ganciclovir (GCV) in HSV-1-infected and uninfected Vero cells. Treatment of HSV-1 infected Vero cells immediately after viral infection with (N)-MCT profoundly inhibited the development of HSV-1 infection. Using standard plaque reduction assay to measure viral infection, (N)-MCT showed a potency greater than that of ganciclovir (GCV), the IC50s were 0.02 and 0.25 microM for (N)-MCT and GCV, respectively. (N)-MCT showed no cytotoxic effect on uninfected Vero cells (CC50>100 microM). Dose and time dependence studies showed high levels of (N)-MCT-triphosphate ((N)-MCT-TP), and GCV-triphosphate (GCV-TP) in HSV-1-infected cells incubated with (N)-MCT or GCV, respectively. In contrast, uninfected cells incubated with (N)-MCT showed elevated levels of (N)-MCT-monophosphate only, while low levels of mono, di- and triphosphates of GCV were found following incubation with GCV. Although the accumulation rate of (N)-MCT and GCV phosphates in HSV-1-infected cells were similar, the decay rate of (N)-MCT-TP was slower than that of GCV-TP. These results suggest that: (1) the antiviral activity of (N)-MCT against herpes viruses is mediated through its triphosphate metabolite; (2) in contrast to GCV, the diphosphorylation of (N)-MCT in HSV-1- infected cells is the rate limiting step; (3) (N)-MCT-TP accumulates rapidly and has a long half-life in HSV-1-infected cells; and (4) HSV-tk catalyzed the mono, and diphosphorylation of (N)-MCT while monophosphorylating GCV only. These results provide a biochemical rational for the highly selective and effective inhibition of HSV-1 by (N)-MCT.

A previously healthy boy aged 9 years and 11 months was admitted due to herpetic gingivostomatitis with poor intake. He also had fever, neutropenia, and elevated serum aminotransferase level (> 1000 IU/mL). Prolonged prothrombin time, mild gastrointestinal hemorrhage and transient decreased conscious level were noted during hospital days 2 and 3. Intravenous acyclovir therapy commenced on hospital day 2 and his serum aminotransferase level peaked (> 4000 IU/mL) on hospital day 3 and then improved gradually. A throat swab was positive for human herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1, serological test was positive for acute primary HSV-1 infection, and a blood specimen was also strongly positive for HSV-1 by polymerase chain reaction. He received a 14-day course of intravenous acyclovir and recovered uneventfully. Herpetic gingivostomatitis, although mostly benign and self-limited, may be complicated with severe hepatitis, even in immunocompetent hosts.

We conducted a randomized, placebo-controlled trial of valganciclovir therapy in neonates with symptomatic congenital CMV disease, comparing 6 months of therapy with 6 weeks of therapy. The primary end point was the change in hearing in the better ear ("best-ear" hearing) from baseline to 6 months. Secondary end points included the change in hearing from baseline to follow-up at 12 and 24 months and neurodevelopmental outcomes, with each end point adjusted for central nervous system involvement at baseline.

Using a replication-defective adenoviral vector (cytomegalovirus, CMV) containing the beta-galactosidase gene (Ad-CMV-beta-gal) as a control and Ad-CMV-TK as the therapeutic vector under the transcriptional control of the CMV promoter, transduction efficiency was assessed in vitro by infecting LNCaP and PC-3 androgen-dependent and independent human prostate cancer cells with Ad-CMV-beta-gal, and using X-gal staining. The TK activity in prostate cancer cells infected with Ad-CMV-TK was determined by measuring TK-mediated [3H]-gancyclovir phosphorylation. The sensitivity of LNCaP and PC-3 cells to Ad-CMV-TK in vitro was determined after infection with the therapeutic vector with or without acyclovir. The inhibition of PC-3 tumour growth in vivo induced by the Ad-CMV-TK/acyclovir suicide-gene system was assessed in separate and controlled experiments using human prostate cancer mouse models. Ki-67 proliferative antigen and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), both useful proliferative indices, were evaluated using immunohistochemical staining (MIB-1 monoclonal antibody and monoclonal anti-PCNA antibody) in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues from gene therapy-treated and control animals.

Two apparently immunocompetent adult patients developed acute fulminant hepatitis during presumptive primary herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection without any visible mucocutaneous lesions. HSV hepatitis was not suspected in the case of patient 1, who died without treatment. Patient 2 was empirically treated with acyclovir because of the triad of high fever, leukopenia, and markedly elevated levels of aminotransferases, and this patient survived. Most immunocompetent patients with fulminant HSV hepatitis do not have visible mucocutaneous ulcers, and HSV is frequently not considered as a cause of acute hepatitis. In summary, fulminant hepatitis can occur during HSV infections, the diagnosis is frequently missed or delayed because of the absence of mucocutaneous ulcerations, and patients who receive early empirical treatment with acyclovir can survive this illness.

A 14-year-old girl presented with a 3-week history of mucosal erosions, injected conjunctiva, dehydration, and respiratory distress. She had been treated with intravenous acyclovir for herpes simplex infection with positive herpes simplex virus immunoglobulin M and immunoglobulin G. Physical examination and imaging revealed a large abdominal mass. Incisional biopsy was obtained, and pathology demonstrated angiofollicular hyperplasia with hyalinized germinal centers and Castleman's syndrome-like features. Based on the mucosal erosions, herpes simplex virus serology and positive herpes simplex virus-1 direct fluorescent antibody, Castleman's disease secondary to overwhelming herpes simplex virus infection was the initial impression. The poor response to antivirals and subsequent development of a bullous eruption on the hands resulted in dermatology consultation. Skin biopsy was obtained from a bullae and revealed suprabasilar acantholysis with necrosis as well as upper dermal, perivascular, and interface infiltrate of lymphocytes and eosinophils. No viropathic changes were present. Direct immunofluorescence was significant for immunoglobulin G deposition intercellularly and along the dermoepidermal junction and focal trace C3 deposition along the dermoepidermal junction consistent with paraneoplastic pemphigus, later confirmed by indirect immunofluorescence. We report this case of paraneoplastic pemphigus secondary to Castleman's syndrome confounded by herpes simplex virus-1 positive mucosal erosions.

Therapeutic cells producing amphotropic retrovirus, which are able to transduce in vivo thymidine kinase gene of Herpes simplex virus were prepared. Single-cell clone cells with high virus productivity (PA-3 17JH5c113) were obtained by cell cloning. The cells were found free of replication competent retrovirus, they were non-tumorigenic in xenogeneic host and highly sensitive to ganciclovir treatment in vitro and in vivo. The therapeutic efficacy of PA-317JH5c113 cells was tested in rat brain tumor model. Increase in survival in the group of treated versus untreated rats was observed. Therefore, these cells are suitable for application in human clinical trial.

Late-onset cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease is a significant problem with a standard 3-month prophylaxis regimen. This multicentre, double-blind, randomized controlled trial compared the efficacy and safety of 200 days' versus 100 days' valganciclovir prophylaxis (900 mg once daily) in 326 high-risk (D+/R-) kidney allograft recipients. Significantly fewer patients in the 200-day group versus the 100-day group developed confirmed CMV disease up to month 12 posttransplant (16.1% vs. 36.8%; p < 0.0001). Confirmed CMV viremia was also significantly lower in the 200-day group (37.4% vs. 50.9%; p = 0.015 at month 12). There was no significant difference in the rate of biopsy-proven acute rejection between the groups (11% vs. 17%, respectively, p = 0.114). Adverse events occurred at similar rates between the groups and the majority were rated mild-to-moderate in intensity and not related to study medication. In conclusion, this study demonstrates that extending valganciclovir prophylaxis (900 mg once daily) to 200 days significantly reduces the incidence of CMV disease and viremia through to 12 months compared with 100 days' prophylaxis, without significant additional safety concerns associated with longer treatment. The number needed to treat to avoid one additional patient with CMV disease up to 12 months posttransplant is approximately 5.

Herpetic gingivostomatitis is the most common specific, clinical manifestation of primary herpes simplex type I infection. It is prevalent in the 1-3-year age group. The disease involves the buccal and gingival mucosa, and tongue and lasts approximately 2 weeks. Two recent open studies reported a more rapid regression of symptoms after treatment with acyclovir suspension. Three randomized double-blind placebo-control trials have clearly demonstrated that early acyclovir treatment significantly shortens the duration of all clinical manifestations and infectivity of affected children compared to placebo.

From 2004 to 2006, we conducted a cross-sectional analysis of baseline data from patients presenting with GUD at a reference STI clinic in Lilongwe, Malawi. Participants were enrolled in a randomized clinical trial of acyclovir added to syndromic management and followed up for up to 28 days. Serologies for HIV (using parallel rapid tests), herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2; using Focus HerpeSelect IgG2 ELISA [Focus Technologies, Cypress Hill, CA]), and syphilis (rapid plasma reagin confirmed by Treponema pallidum hemagglutination) were determined, with plasma HIV-1 RNA and CD4 count in HIV-positive patients. Genital ulcer disease etiology was determined by real-time multiplex polymerase chain reaction from lesional swabs.

Kaposis varicelliform eruption (KVE) represents widespread cutaneous herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection in patients with preexisting dermatoses. Occasionally, this infection can present as a nosocomial infection in skin wards, if adequate bed-spacing and barrier nursing methods are not followed. We are reporting five cases of KVE; four cases acquired the infection in a makeshift ward after admission of the first case in May 2005, due to the renovation work of the regular skin ward.

Studies were carried out, for the first time, to investigate the charge-transfer reactions of ganciclovir as n-electron donor with the sigma-acceptor iodine and various pi-acceptors: 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane; tetracyanoethylene; 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone; p-chloranilic acid; 2,3,5,6-tetrabromo-1,4-benzoquinone; 2,3,5,6-tetrachloro-1,4-benzoquinone and 2,4,7-trinitro-9-fluorenone. The formation of the colored charge-transfer complexes was utilized in the development of simple, rapid and accurate spectrophotometric methods for the analysis of ganciclovir in pure form as well as in its pharmaceutical formulation (capsules). Different variables affecting the reactions were studied and optimized. Under the optimum reaction conditions, linear relationships with good correlation coefficients (0.9993-0.9998) were found between the absorbance and the concentration of ganciclovir in the range of 2.0-240 microg mL(-1). For more accurate analysis, Ringbom optimum concentration range was found to be between 5.0 and 225 microg mL(-1). The limits of detection ranged from 0.36 to 2.45 microg mL(-1) and the limits of quantification ranged from 1.20 to 8.17 microg mL(-1). A Job's plot of the absorbance versus the molar ratio of ganciclovir to each of acceptors under consideration indicated (1:1) ratio. The proposed methods were applied successfully for simultaneous determination of ganciclovir in capsules with good accuracy and precision and without interferences from common additives. The recovery percentages ranged from 99.45+/-0.73% to 100.35+/-1.40%. The results were compared favourably with the reported method.

Interactions between pharmaceutical ingredients play an important role in the development of drug formulations. It was the aim of our present studies to investigate drug-polymer interactions. Interaction of the antiviral drug acyclovir with polyethylenimines, polyvinylamines and the non-ionic PVP was investigated using a modified equilibrium dialysis. The membrane was only permeable to free acyclovir, while polymers and acyclovir-polymer-associates did not pass through. Significant amounts of acyclovir were bound with the polyethylenimines. The formation of associates consisting of acyclovir and either PVP or polyvinylamine could not be demonstrated. In solutions of acyclovir and polyethylenimine (Mr=25,000) the amount of bound drug is increased with increasing concentration of acyclovir. Between 7.9 µg and 31.7 µg take part in the formation of associates. Differences in the osmotic pressure of the solutions do not play an important role in the permeation of acyclovir. In solutions containing acyclovir and high molecular weight polyethylenimine (Mr=750,000) the bound amount of drug increases with increasing acyclovir concentration up to c(0)=400 µg/100 ml. Further addition of free drug to the solution does not change the amount of bound drug significantly, due to possible limitations in the binding capacity. Molecular modeling investigations were performed. According to the calculations, about 85% of the interactions can be attributed to electrostatic interactions.

Podophyllotoxin and its derivatives were examined for inhibitory effects on the replication of herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2), including acyclovir-resistant virus and clinical isolates. Deoxypodophyllotoxin (RD4-6266) proved to be a highly potent and selective inhibitor of all HSV strains in MRC-5 cells. EC50 values of RD4-6283 (in which the methylenedioxy ring A is modified) for HSV-1 and -2 were inferior to those of deoxypodophyllotoxin. However, podorhizol (RD4-6277) and 5'-methoxy-podorhizol (RD4-6276), in which ring C is absent, did not inhibit HSV replication. Moreover, RD4-6266 also inhibited the production of infectious virus particles of HSV-1 KOS strain and HSV-2 G strain. In contrast, none of the podophyllotoxin derivatives were found to have an antiviral effect against influenza A virus, respiratory syncytial virus or human cytomegalovirus in doses not toxic to the cells.

The aim of this study was to investigate the selective killing effect of the herpes simplex virus-thymidine kinase/ganciclovir (TK/GCV) suicide gene system controlled by the survivin promoter on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells in vitro. Recombinant plasmid vectors driven by the survivin promoter were constructed. HepG2 HCC and LO2 normal human liver cells were transfected with the recombinant plasmids, green fluorescent protein (GFP)/pSURV, TK/pSURV and TAT-TK/pSURV. GFP expression was detected by fluoroscopy and flow cytometry (FCM). TK gene expression was detected using RT-PCR and western blot analysis. The selective killing effects after GCV application were evaluated by tetrazolium assay, FCM and western blot analysis. Statistical analysis was performed by ANOVA. After transfection with GFP/pSURV, TK/pSURV and TAT-TK/pSURV for 48 h, GFP expression was observed in the HepG2 cells, but not in the L02 cells and TK gene expression was evidently detected by RT-PCR and western blot analysis in the HepG2 cells. Three stably transfected cell lines (HepG2/pSURV, HepG2/TK/pSURV and HepG2/TAT-TK/pSURV) were successfully established. Compared with the HepG2/TK/pSURV group, a significant 'bystander effect' was observed in the HepG2/TAT-TK/pSURV group with the incorporation of unmodifed HepG2 cells at different ratios. Following transfection with TK/pSURV and TAT-TK/pSURV, the growth of HepG2 cells in the presence of GCV was markedly inhibited. This finding was further corroborated by FCM and immunoblot analysis revealed the repressed expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA). Our results showed that the plasmid vectors carrying the TK and TAT-TK fusion protein gene driven by the survivin promoter were successfully constructed and their specific expression in HepG2 cells provided the basis for the targeted gene therapy of HCC.

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) replicates in quiescent T cells, neurons, and skin cells. In cultured fibroblasts (HFFs), VZV induces host cyclin expression and cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) activity without causing cell cycle progression. CDK1/cyclin B1 phosphorylates the major viral transactivator, and the CDK inhibitor roscovitine prevents VZV mRNA transcription. We investigated the antiviral effects of additional compounds that target CDKs or other cell cycle enzymes in culture, ex vivo, and in vivo. Cytotoxicity and cell growth arrest doses were determined by Neutral Red assay. Antiviral effects were evaluated in HFFs by plaque assay, genome copy number, and bioluminescence. Positive controls were acyclovir (400 microM) and phosphonoacetic acid (PAA, 1 mM). Test compounds were roscovitine, aloisine A, and purvalanol A (CDK inhibitors), aphidicolin (inhibits human and herpesvirus DNA polymerase), l-mimosine (indirectly inhibits human DNA polymerase), and DRB (inhibits casein kinase 2). All had antiviral effects below the concentrations required for cell growth arrest. Compounds were tested in skin organ culture at EC(99) doses; all prevented VZV replication in skin, except for aloisine A and purvalanol A. In SCID mice with skin xenografts, roscovitine (0.7 mg/kg/day) was as effective as PAA (36 mg/kg/day). The screening systems described here are useful models for evaluating novel antiviral drugs for VZV.

In solid organ transplant recipients and patients with AIDS, HCMV symptomatic infections mostly appear when antigenemia values are > 300 pp65-positive PBL/2 x 10(5) examined. To avoid the appearance of overt HCMV disease antiviral treatment could be administered when antigenemia levels are > 100 pp65-positive PBL/2 x 10(5) examined. Bone marrow transplant recipients show symptomatic HCMV infections when antigenemia values are > 100 pp65-positive PBL/2 x 10(5) examined. This group of patients should be treated when antigenemia levels are < 10 pp65-positive PBL/2 x 10(5) examined due to the higher mortality rate associated with HCMV complications. A decrease in antigenemia levels during therapy indicates a good response to antiviral drug, while stable or increasing values document a treatment failure and the emergence of drug-resistant HCMV strains.

We studied six cases of CMV replication in solid organ transplant patients whose genotypic testing showed mutations associated with different levels of resistance to ganciclovir buy zovirax online . All were treated with high-dose intravenous ganciclovir (7.5-10 mg/kg/12 hr) or oral valganciclovir (1350-1800 mg/12 hr) corrected according to creatinine clearance. The virologic response was considered positive if the CMV plasma viral load was undetectable. Safety was evaluated by clinical assessment, including the review of vital signs and laboratory tests.

Herpes simplex virus-thymidine kinase/ganciclovir (HSV-TK/GCV) gene therapy was performed in five cases of recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. The mean age of cases, three males and two females, was 60 +/- 5 years old. All of the tumors were confirmed pathologically as glioblastoma multiforme and recurred buy zovirax online after the initial treatments (surgery and irradiation). A total number of 1 x 10(9) vector producer cells (VPCs), which produce retroviral vectors containing the HSV-TK gene, was inoculated into the tumor-bed spaces after removal of the recurrent tumors. From the following 14th day to the 27th day, GCV was transfused 5 mg/kg i.v. twice a day. The effect of the HSV-TK/GCV gene therapy was evaluated by the Karnofsky performance scale and MRI findings sequentially, before the therapy and in the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th month after the VPCs inoculation. During the follow-up period of 12 months, two cases died (survival period; 8.4 and 9.9 months), whereas the other three are still alive for over 12 months (1-year survival; 60%). Karnofsky performance scale showed the maximum at the 2nd and 4th month in all cases; the mean performance rating of living cases was 80% and that of dead cases was 70%. MRI revealed progression in none of the cases until the 2nd month. These results obtained in five cases suggest that the HSV-TK/GCV gene therapy may promise a feasible approach against glioblastoma multiforme.

The five tautomers of the drug acyclovir (ACV) were determined and optimised at the MP2 and B3LYP quantum chemical levels of theory. The stability of the tautomers was correlated with different parameters. On the most stable tautomer N1 was carried out a comprehensive conformational analysis, and the whole conformational parameters (R, β, Φ, φ1, φ2, φ3, φ4, φ5) were studied as well as the NBO Natural atomic charges. The calculations were carried out with full relaxation of all geometrical parameters. The search located at least 78 stable structures within 8.5 kcal/mol electronic energy range of the global minimum, and classified in buy zovirax online two groups according to the positive or negative value of the torsional angle j1. In the nitrogen atoms and in the O2' and O5' oxygen atoms of the most stable conformer appear a higher reactivity than in the natural nucleoside deoxyguanosine. The solid state was simulated through a dimer and tetramer forms and the structural parameters were compared with the X-ray crystal data available. Several general conclusions were emphasized.

The dermatomal site of viral replication during secondary infection--the basal epidermis--was successfully targeted. Topical delivery of these compounds is highly promising as a new first line treatment of VZV infections. By attacking the virus at the first sign of reactivation, it is proposed that the extent of damage caused by the buy zovirax online virus would be significantly lowered, thereby limiting the extent and severity of post-herpetic neuralgia.

With the advent of gene therapy, herpes simplex virus type I (HSV-1) thymidine kinase (TK) has garnered much interest as a suicide gene for cancer ablation. As a means to improve the overall efficacy of the prodrug-gene activation approach, as well as to reduce ganciclovir-mediated toxicity, a large library of mutant thymidine kinases was generated and screened for the ability to enhance in vitro cell sensitivity to the prodrugs, ganciclovir (GCV) and acyclovir (ACV). Enzyme kinetics of one thymidine kinase mutant from this library that contains six amino acid substitutions at or near the active site reveals a distinct mechanism for providing enhanced prodrug-mediated killing in mammalian cells. In in vitro rat C6 cell prodrug sensitivity assays the TK mutant (mutant 30) achieves nanomolar IC50 values with GCV and ACV, in contrast to IC50values of 30 microM and >100 microM, respectively, for wild-type TK. In a mouse xenograft tumor model, growth of mutant 30 expressing tumors is restricted by ganciclovir at a dose at least 10- fold lower than one that impedes growth of wild-type TK-expressing tumors. Furthermore, in the presence of GCV a substantial bystander effect is observable when only 20% of the tumor cells express mutant 30 whereas no restriction in tumor growth is seen in tumors bearing the wild-type TK under the same conditions. The enhanced sensitization to prodrugs conferred by mutant 30 is apparently due to a 35-fold increase in thymidine Km which results in reduced competition between prodrug and thymidine at the active site. This provides mutant 30 a substantial kinetic advantage despite buy zovirax online very high Kms for both ganciclovir and acyclovir. Molecular modeling of the mutations within the active site suggests that a tyrosine substitution at alanine 168 (A168) alters thymidine and prodrug interactions by causing catalytically important residues to move. The use of mutant 30 in place of the wild-type TK should provide a more effective gene therapy of cancer.

Inhibition of type-1 herpes simplex strains resistant to acyclovir, phosphonoacetic acid and their combination by combined use of three drugs with different mechanisms of action capable of suppressing reproduction of the acyclovir resistant strain was studied. The combinations used were the following: Ara-A + ribavirin + phosphonoformic acid, Xylo-A + ribavirin + phosphonoformic acid and Ph-ACH + Ara-A + ribavirin. The former two combinations had a synergistic action on the buy zovirax online standard strain L2 whose drug susceptibility had not undergone changes as well as on the acyclovir resistant strain. As for the strain resistant to phosphonoacetic acid and to acyclovir + phosphonoacetic acid the effect was additive. Ph-ACH + Ara-A + ribavirin had a marked synergistic action on all the strains tested.

Herpes simplex virus encephalitis (HSE) is a rare but often fatal disease if left untreated. MRI typically shows the characteristic findings of medial temporal lobe and insular involvement, while diagnosis in confirmed by CSF PCR. In immunocompromised state, HSE may have atypical clinical and radiological features. We report a MS patient under natalizumab treatment with HSE, who presented with MRI lesions exclusively in the right parietal lobe. The patient was timely started on acyclovir resulting in marked improvement. A high index of suspicion for HSE should be maintained when a patient presents with fever and extratemporal lesions, even more in buy zovirax online immunocompromised subjects.

A case of recurrent unilateral varicella-zoster virus (VZV) retinitis is reported. The retinitis was characterized by arteriolitis and retinal necrosis with secondary chorioretinal atrophy localized in the periphery of the supratemporal quadrant of the retina. Polymerase chain reaction analysis of aqueous humor demonstrated VZV DNA in buy zovirax online both the initial and recurrent episode. The Goldmann-Witmer coefficient for VZV IgG was elevated. The initial VZV retinitis was successfully treated with acyclovir and corticosteroids. Three years later, high-dose corticosteroids alone were used to treat idiopathic facial nerve palsy. One month after concluding corticosteroids therapy, the VZV retinitis recurred in the same eye, suggesting that administration of the high-dose corticosteroids caused VZV reactivation and induced recurrence of VZV retinitis.

Multiple antitumor modalities may be necessary to overcome lung tumor-mediated immunosuppression and effectively treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). To evaluate a multimodality gene therapy approach for control of local tumor growth, a weakly immunogenic murine alveolar cell carcinoma, L1C2, was transduced with either the interleukin-7/hygromycin-herpes simplex thymidine kinase (IL-7/HyHSVtk) internal ribosome entry site (IRES) retroviral vector or a vector containing the HyHSVtk, but not the IL-7 gene. Of the many cytokines available for gene transfer, IL-7 was chosen for these studies because it both stimulates CTL responses and down buy zovirax online -regulates tumor production of the immunosuppressive peptide TGF-beta. Following selection in hygromycin, IL-7 transduction was confirmed by ELISA. Clones produced 1.25 to 10 ng of IL-7/ml/10(6) cells per 24 h. In vitro, genetically modified tumor cells were significantly more sensitive to ganciclovir (GCV) than unmodified parental tumor cells. The in vivo growth of ex vivo modified L1C2 cells was evaluated. There was a dose-response relationship between the amount of IL-7 secreted in vitro and the growth of genetically modified murine tumor in vivo. Transduced tumor cells regressed in mice following GCV therapy. Although ex vivo gene modification of tumor cells led to complete resolution of the tumor following implantation in vivo, IL-7 and HSVtk gene modified tumor cells were not effective in treating established parental tumors. However when 5 x 10(5) bone marrow-derived, in vitro activated dendritic cells (DC) were administered in combination with transduced tumor and GCV, 5 day old established tumors were eradicated in 80% of mice. These studies suggest that multicomponent vaccines may facilitate improved host responses by replacing host immune deficits and thus could have a role in adjuvant therapy and local control of NSCLC.

Bioactivity-guided fractionation of the hot water extract from the brown alga Sargassun patens led to the isolation of buy zovirax online a polysaccharide as an antiviral component against herpes simplex viruses which are the cause of cold sores (HSV-1) and genital herpes (HSV-2). The polysaccharide contained a sulfur group that could be present as a sulfate ester. It is thus a sulfated polysaccharide with a molecular mass of about 424 kDa, and is designated SP-2a. Gas chromatographic assay showed that the polysaccharide consisted of fucose, galactose, mannose, xylose, glucose, and galactosamine. The fucose is the major constituent sugar (35.3%), followed by galactose (18.4%). The 50% effective concentration (EC50) against HSV-2, HSV-1, and HSV-1 acyclovir resistant strain was 1.3, 5.5, and 4.1 microg/mL, respectively. The 50% cytotoxic concentration (CC50) of SP-2a on the growth of normal Vero cell line was more than 4000 microg/mL. Therefore SP-2a of S. patens may be a potent agent for treating HSV infections.

Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a serious complication of herpes zoster that has a predilection for older individuals. PHN is often associated with significant morbidity, and it can cause insomnia, fatigue, depression and interference with daily activities in affected individuals. Treatment for PHN is initiated with antivirals during the acute herpes zoster outbreak. Acyclovir (Zoviraxr, GlaxoSmithKline), valacyclovir (Valtrex, GlaxoSmithKline) or famciclovir (Famvir, Novartis) can be used to treat herpes zoster, and all three have been shown to reduce the duration of the herpetic rash and zoster-associated pain. These antivirals are most effective when used Duphaston Online within the first 72 hours of the onset of the rash. Side-effects of these antivirals are low and include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and headache. Other treatment options for PHN include topical analgesics, opioid analgesics, tricyclic antidepressants and gabapentin. Because of the complexity of PHN, most patients require a combination of treatment modalities for adequate pain relief.

The aim of this study was to examine the frequency and the course of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection and CMV disease in a group of pediatric and adolescent patients after allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Patients were treated according to a protocol including prophylactic high-dose acyclovir in combination with preemptive administration of ganciclovir, based on weekly examinations of CMV antigenemia. A total of 110 consecutively transplanted patients, with a mean age of 9 yr (range 0-20) were treated according to the protocol. All patients were transplanted between March 1993 and January 2000 at the only Danish allotransplantation center. CMV infection occurred Nizoral Dosage Directions in 21.8% (24 of 110) of the patients. Three patients [12.5% (3/24)] developed CMV disease, all with pneumonitis and one with gastrointestinal disease as well. Mean time of disease onset was day +58. Treatment with ganciclovir was in general well tolerated. Late onset CMV disease was not documented. Multivariate analysis revealed that the use of unrelated donor transplants was significantly associated with an increased risk for CMV infection [hazard ratio (HR) 2.90, p = 0.03] and CMV infection was found to be a risk factor for transplant related mortality before day +100 (HR 10.70, p = 0.0015). Although high-dose acyclovir in combination with antigenemia based preemptive treatment with ganciclovir resulted in a low incidence of CMV disease in pediatric and adolescent patients, CMV infection was a significant risk factor in stem cell transplantation with unrelated donors.

We treated 14 patients with advanced, resistant chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) including three with >10% prolymphocytes (CLL/PL) with high dose methyl prednisolone (HDMP). All patients had stage C CLL or bulky stage B disease. There were 11 males Vasotec Drug Class and 3 females with a median age of 58.5 years (range: 49-69). Six out of eleven CLL patients had a partial response as defined by the NCI guidelines, no patient had a complete remission. The mean duration of PR was 19.6 months with a median of 8 months (range 6-78). Seven patients have died including the 5 non-responders. None of the 3 patients with CLL/PL had a measurable response. Previous treatments included chlorambucil, fludarabine, deoxycoformycin, anthracycline containing regimens such as CHOP and Campath-1H. HDMP was given at a dose of 1 g/m2 for five days, at monthly intervals for one to seven courses depending on the response. H2 antagonists and antimicrobial prophylaxis were given concurrently. Acyclovir prophylaxis was given if there was a recent history of herpes infection. HDMP was generally well tolerated. Side effects included fluid retention, hyperglycaemia, bradycardia (1 patient), herpes simplex (1), and pneumonia (1) in a patient with a previous history of recurrent chest infection and pneumonia. These results suggest that HDMP may be beneficial in the treatment of refractory CLL but is of no value in CLL/PL.

A 32-year-old woman in the 16th week of pregnancy was admitted to our hospital because of high fever. Laboratory findings disclosed pancytopenia and extremely elevated serum LDH and ferritin levels. Coagulation tests showed disseminated intravascular coagulation. Serum soluble interleukin-2 receptor, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and interleukin-6 levels were high, but serum interferon-gamma was below the detectable limit. Reactive Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection was diagnosed on the basis of a high titer of IgG antibodies to the EBV capsid antigen and early antigen. EBV was demonstrated in the peripheral blood and bone marrow cells by polymerase chain reaction. Mature histiocytosis and hemophagocytosis were detected in the bone marrow. A diagnosis of EBV-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (EBV-AHS) was made. Neither prednisolone (PSL 30 mg/day, P.O.) nor methylprednisolone (m-PSL) pulse therapy (1,000 mg/day for 3 days) induced a response. Thereafter, treatment with m-PSL pulse therapy (1,000 mg/day for 3 days) and i.v. administrations of high-dose immunoglobulin (20 g/day for 3 days) in combination with acyclovir (750 mg/day) and gabexate mesilate (2 g/day) induced remission of the disease. Maintenance therapy consisted of PSL (5 mg/day, P.O.) and camostat Cost Of Azulfidine mesilate (600 mg/day, P.O.). The patient delivered a healthy male infant in the 35th week of pregnancy via natural birth. Reports of pregnant women with EBV-AHS are rare, and the choice of therapy has not yet been established. The present case study suggested the above combination treatment is useful and safe, and capable of changing the fulminant course of EBV-AHS during pregnancy without the use of anticancer drugs.

In the present work, we used a novel albumin-associated lipoplex formulation, containing the cationic lipid 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-ethylphosphocholine (EPOPC) and cholesterol (Chol), to evaluate the antitumoral efficacy of two gene therapy strategies: immuno-gene therapy, mediated by IL-12 gene expression, and "suicide" gene therapy, mediated by HSV-tk gene expression followed by ganciclovir (GCV) treatment. Our data show that, in an animal model bearing a subcutaneous TSA (mouse mammary adenocarcinoma) tumor, intratumoral administration of the albumin-associated complexes containing the plasmid encoding IL-12 Aldactone Buy results in a strong antitumoral effect, as demonstrated by the smaller tumor size, the higher T-lymphocyte tumor infiltration and the more extensive tumor necrotic and hemorrhagic areas, as compared to that observed in animals treated with control complexes. On the other hand, the application of the "suicide" gene therapy strategy results in a significant antitumoral activity, which is similar to that achieved with the immuno-gene therapy strategy, although involving different antineoplastic mechanisms. For the tested model, albumin-associated complexes were shown to efficiently mediate intratumoral delivery of therapeutic genes, thus leading to a significant antitumoral effect. This finding is particularly relevant since TSA tumors are characterized for being poorly immunogenic, aggressive and exhibiting high proliferation capacity.

There were 300 HIV/CMV-coinfected participants who contributed a total of 426.4 person-years with a median follow-up time of 1.81 years. Compared with the lowest CMV IgG tertile group at baseline, the highest CMV IgG tertile group was associated with an increased risk to reach a primary endpoint independent of acyclovir use, age, CD4 T-cell count, and HIV viral load at baseline [adjusted hazard ratio = 1.59; (95% CI = 1.05-2.39); P = 0.027]. Among pre-ART visits (n = 1200), women in the highest baseline CMV IgG tertile had increasing annual rates of soluble CD14 and CRP levels, which was not observed for the low CMV IgG tertile group. Compared with pre-ART visits, CMV IgG antibody levels were higher post-ART initiation, and concurrent levels remained associated with soluble CD14 and CRP during suppressive ART (n = 88 person-visits).

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.

More corrective measures were required in eyes with higher risk scores. During a follow-up of 61.2 months (standard deviation [SD], 18.2; range, 36-91 months) after KLAL, postoperative epithelial breakdown due to exposure occurred late in the period after PKP and remained a primary risk. Mean daily doses of 1.4 g of mycophenolate mofetil and 1.6 mg of tacrolimus were administered for 52.7 months (SD, 22.5; range, 23-91 months) with few adverse effects and reached trough levels of 1.6 microg/mL (SD, 0.6 microg/mL) and 4.5 ng/mL (SD, 2 ng/mL), respectively. Keratolimbal allograft and PKP rejection was noted in 2 and 3 eyes, respectively, though there was a reversal in 1 eye in each group, yielding final KLAL and PKP survivals in 10 and 8 eyes, respectively, and ambulatory visual acuity of up to 20/20 in 10 eyes for 67.2% of the entire follow-up period.

Head and neck infectious disease emergencies can be rapidly fatal without prompt recognition and treatment. Empiric intravenous (IV) antibiotics should be initiated immediately in any patient with suspected bacterial meningitis, and IV acyclovir in any patient with suspected encephalitis. Surgical intervention is often necessary for brain abscesses, epiglottitis, and Ludwig's angina. A high index of suspicion is often needed to diagnose epiglottitis, Ludwig's angina, and Lemierre's syndrome. Brain infections can have high morbidity among survivors. In this article, the causes, diagnostic tests, treatment, and prognosis are reviewed for some of the more common head and neck infectious disease emergencies.

A morphological change of differentiation was observed in C6 glioma cells after exposure to each concentration of ATRA. The proliferation of C6 cells was also significantly inhibited by ATRA, majority of living cells being arrested at G1 phase, especially at the concentration of 100 mumol/L. At the concentration of 100 mumol/L, ATRA also induced significant apoptosis in C6 glioma cells. The GJIC was significantly enhanced in C6 cells after ARTA treatment at each concentration, while there was no ATRA induced effect observed upon Cx43 transcription. The results of bystander effect assay revealed that ATRA at each concentration exerted a significant augmentation effect on bystander effect.
