famvir 500mg dosage

We investigated the pharmacokinetics of penciclovir after oral administration of its prodrug famciclovir to horses. Following an oral dose of famciclovir at 20 mg/kg, maximum plasma concentrations of penciclovir occurred between 0.75 and 1.5 hr (mean 0.94 + or - 0.38 hr) after dosing and were in the range 2.22 to 3.56 microg/ml (mean 2.87 + or - 0.61 microg/ml). The concentrations of penciclovir declined in a biphasic manner after the peak concentration was attained. The mean half-life of the rapid elimination phase was 1.73 + or - 0.34 hr whereas that of the slow elimination phase was 34.34 + or - 13.93 hr. These pharmacokinetic profiles observed were similar to those of another antiherpesvirus drug, acyclovir, previously reported in horses following oral dosing of its prodrug valacyclovir.

A simple, sensitive and reliable HPLC ion-pairing method with fluorescence detection, was developed for penciclovir determination in plasma and aqueous humor, with a Zorbax SB-aq C18 (100 mmx2.1 mm) column. Plasma samples were treated by solid-phase extraction with Oasis MCX (30 mg) cartridges. Ganciclovir, an antiviral drug structurally related to penciclovir, was used as internal standard (I.S.). Aqueous humor samples were directly injected into the chromatographic system. Separation was performed by a gradient elution with a mobile phase consisting of a mixture of acetonitrile and phosphate buffer 50mM containing 5mM of sodium octanesulfonate, pH 2.0, at a flow rate of 0.3 ml/min. The method was validated and showed good performances in terms of linearity, sensitivity, precision and trueness. Quantification limit was obtained at 0.05 microg/ml for aqueous humor and at 0.1 microg/ml for plasma. Finally, the proposed analytical method was used to measure penciclovir in clinical samples for a pharmacokinetic study, after oral administration of famciclovir.

For 4 patients with relatively indolent cases of ARN, oral antiviral therapy alone was effective in eliminating signs and symptoms of the disease. In particular, oral valacyclovir and famciclovir appeared to be effective, although further study is necessary to determine whether these drugs are as effective as intravenous acyclovir for initial treatment of ARN.

These recommendations represent the first statement by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on the use of a live attenuated vaccine for the prevention of herpes zoster (zoster) (i.e., shingles) and its sequelae, which was licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on May 25, 2006. This report summarizes the epidemiology of zoster and its sequelae, describes the zoster vaccine, and provides recommendations for its use among adults aged > or =60 years in the United States. Zoster is a localized, generally painful cutaneous eruption that occurs most frequently among older adults and immunocompromised persons. It is caused by reactivation of latent varicella zoster virus (VZV) decades after initial VZV infection is established. Approximately one in three persons will develop zoster during their lifetime, resulting in an estimated 1 million episodes in the United States annually. A common complication of zoster is postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), a chronic, often debilitating pain condition that can last months or even years. The risk for PHN in patients with zoster is 10%-18%. Another complication of zoster is eye involvement, which occurs in 10%-25% of zoster episodes and can result in prolonged or permanent pain, facial scarring, and loss of vision. Approximately 3% of patients with zoster are hospitalized; many of these episodes involved persons with one or more immunocompromising conditions. Deaths attributable to zoster are uncommon among persons who are not immunocompromised. Prompt treatment with the oral antiviral agents acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir decreases the severity and duration of acute pain from zoster. Additional pain control can be achieved in certain patients by supplementing antiviral agents with corticosteroids and with analgesics. Established PHN can be managed in certain patients with analgesics, tricyclic antidepressants, and other agents. Licensed zoster vaccine is a lyophilized preparation of a live, attenuated strain of VZV, the same strain used in the varicella vaccines. However, its minimum potency is at least 14-times the potency of single-antigen varicella vaccine. In a large clinical trial, zoster vaccine was partially efficacious at preventing zoster. It also was partially efficacious at reducing the severity and duration of pain and at preventing PHN among those developing zoster. Zoster vaccine is recommended for all persons aged > or =60 years who have no contraindications, including persons who report a previous episode of zoster or who have chronic medical conditions. The vaccine should be offered at the patient's first clinical encounter with his or her health-care provider. It is administered as a single 0.65 mL dose subcutaneously in the deltoid region of the arm. A booster dose is not licensed for the vaccine. Zoster vaccination is not indicated to treat acute zoster, to prevent persons with acute zoster from developing PHN, or to treat ongoing PHN. Before administration of zoster vaccine, patients do not need to be asked about their history of varicella (chickenpox) or to have serologic testing conducted to determine varicella immunity.

Shingles (herpes zoster) affects 20% of the population at some stage during their lives. The economic consequences can be significant. For example, in the UK, the costs of post-herpetic neuralgia, a complication that affects between 10 and 14% of patients with shingles, have been estimated between 4.8 million and 17.9 million pounds sterling (Pounds). This study is the first formal assessment of the cost-effectiveness of the 2 most commonly used oral antiviral treatments that have proven efficacy in patients with shingles: famciclovir and aciclovir (acyclovir). It shows that the clinical advantages of famciclovir over aciclovir are accompanied by potential economic advantages in the form of savings in direct costs to the UK National Health Service of between 2.04 pounds and 16.85 pounds per patient treated. Future economic research to validate the benefits of antiviral treatment should focus on prospective assessments alongside controlled trials incorporating resource use analysis, quality-of-life appraisal, assessments of pain severity, and long term follow-up with continuation protocols.

The features of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) related liver diseases and the aim of their therapy have briefly discussed, then treatment modalities are listed. In Hungary, between 1994 and 1996, a total of 68 patients with chronic hepatitis B have been treated with interferon (IFN). IFN resulted in complete clinical-biochemical remission in 50% of the patients, and in 32% the HBV replication was also eliminated. There are various nucleoside analogues, among them mostly famciclovir and lamivudine have been intensively studied as potentially effective treatment for HBV infection, and controlled clinical trials are in progress with these drugs. Nucleoside analogues in combination with IFN possibly improve treatment results in this disease. Various immunomodulatory agents--such as levamisole, thymosine, interleukin-2, and other cytokines--as well as the prednisolon-withdrawal induced rebound phenomenon have also been tested in HBV infection, but with no generally established benefit. A recombinant HBsAg vaccine is under investigation for therapeutic use. For end-stage HBV liver cirrhosis, liver transplantation is the only treatment, but the problem of reinfection is not still solved for more reasons.

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

Equivalence was defined prospectively and famciclovir was equivalent to acyclovir in preventing new lesion formation: new lesions occurred in 16.7% and 13.3% of patients, respectively [difference, 3.4%; 95% confidence interval (CI), -4.8-11.5]. The groups were comparable in time to complete healing (median 7 days for both groups; hazard ratio, 1.01; 95% CI, 0.79-1.29; P = 0.95), cessation of viral shedding (median of 2 days [hazard ratio = 0.93; 95% C.I. 0.68, 1.27; p = 0.64]), and loss of lesion-associated symptoms (median 4 days; hazard ratio, 0.99; 95% CI, 0.75-1.30; P = 0.93). Similar numbers in each group withdrew because of treatment failure. There were no differences between groups in the incidence of adverse events.

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

A single-day regimen of patient-initiated famciclovir treatment was well tolerated and safe, and the healing of recurrent genital herpes lesions occurred approximately 2 days faster than with placebo. Moreover, single-day famciclovir treatment stopped the development or progression of lesions beyond the papule stage. This convenient single-day regimen has the potential for improving patient compliance and satisfaction with therapy.

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.

The median CD4 cell count at study entry was 384 cells/mm3. In the intention-to-treat analysis of the first study period, HSV was isolated on 122 of 1114 (11%) placebo days compared with 9 of 1071 (1%) famciclovir days (relative risk, 0.15; P < 0.001). For patients who completed the crossover, the median difference in days with symptoms between placebo and famciclovir was 13.8% of days and the median difference in days on which HSV was isolated was 5.4% of days (P < 0.001 for both). Percentage of days with HSV-2 shedding was reduced from 9.7% to 1.3%. Breakthrough reactivations that occurred while patients were receiving famciclovir were infrequent, short, and often asymptomatic, HSV-2 isolates from these reactivations were susceptible to penciclovir in vitro.

VZV DNA was detected in cerebrospinal fluid of four patients (and in vitreous fluid of one of the four) and in vitreous fluid of one other. One patient refused therapy and rapidly became blind. Four patients received intravenous foscarnet with intravenous aciclovir for 6 weeks: three subsequently received oral famciclovir and one oral valaciclovir; two patients also had intravitreal injections of foscarnet. In none of the four did treatment bring about improvement in visual acuity, but in all four visual loss from retinitis was halted.

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 buy famvir stable below 100 pg/ml, transaminases have normalized and clinical symptoms of polyarteritis nodosa have disappeared.

A nummular headache (NH) is a type of primary headache that results buy famvir from cranial neuralgia without a known cause. We herein report the case of a woman who suffered two episodes of focal headache in the left parietal area with identical characteristics that were compatible with NH. During the recovery phase of the second NH episode, the pain resurged with shingles coinciding with the painful area. The patient's NH subsided in parallel with resolution of the shingles. These findings support a diagnosis of peripheral neuralgia with NH. Latent virus infections, such as Varicella-zoster virus, that frequently cause distal nerve damage in patients with zoster sine herpete may be associated with epicranial neuralgia and NH.

The present clinical trials concerning prevention of postherpetic neuralgia were analyzed. Only for the antiviral drugs have valid clinical studies been performed. Using acyclovir a considerable reduction of acute pain and time to healing could clearly be demonstrated. However, there was no significant effect on prevention of buy famvir postherpetic neuralgia. The second-generation antiviral drugs valaciclovir and famciclovir may be more effective when applied early in the disease course. Preliminary studies indicate that the early onset of therapy with the antidepressant agent amitriptyline may reduce the incidence of postherpetic neuralgia. These results need to be confirmed in further studies.

Almost all of the approved antiviral drugs have become available during the past two decades. buy famvir Approximately one half of these agents are for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections and comprise five classes. The first three classes all act to inhibit reverse transcriptase: nucleoside analogs; nonnucleoside analogs; and nucleotide analogs. The fourth class, protease inhibitors, prevent viral packaging; the fifth class, fusion inhibitors, prevent fusion between HIV and the target cell. Four nucleoside analogs, acyclovir, valacyclovir, famciclovir and penciclovir, are approved for the therapy of herpes simplex and varicella zoster infections. Interferon alpha is approved in the injectable form for condyloma acuminatum and Kaposi's sarcoma, but the more efficient method of delivering this agent is via interferon induction following topical use of imiquimod cream. Antiviral agents are also approved for infections with cytomegalovirus, hepatitis B and C, respiratory syncytial virus, and influenza viruses. Most of these antiviral drugs are virastatic and not viracidal. Vaccines and public health measures are much more effective and cost effective than antiviral drugs and must be promoted accordingly in the defense against viral infections.

A 21-year-old woman who wore soft contact lenses for management of keratoconus presented with a painful suppurative corneal infiltrate and epithelial defect. The patient was initially seen in an emergency department where she was given a bottle of topical anesthetic drops (proparacaine) to use for pain. When she was seen by the authors 18 hr after presenting to the emergency department, the proparacaine was immediately discontinued, and she was treated with fortified antibiotic (vancomycin and tobramycin) eye drops and oral antiviral medications (famciclovir). Despite an initial improvement and complete resolution of ocular discomfort, the patient went on to develop a dense, peripheral stromal infiltrate that failed to improve despite intensive treatment. Confocal microscopy and corneal buy famvir biopsy were definitive for acanthamoeba infection. The patient subsequently failed medical therapy and underwent large diameter penetrating keratoplasty.

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

The effect of penciclovir and acyclovir on the replication of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2) strains was determined in MRC-5 cells infected with 0.01 pfu/cell and exposed to the drugs for 72 h to allow multiple cycles of replication. Penciclovir was significantly more active than acyclovir against three strains of HSV-1 and three strains of HSV-2 at 1 mg/L (P = 0.009), 3 mg/L (P < 0.001) and 10 mg/L (P = 0.001). Further comparisons between the compounds were made in MRC-5 cells infected with HSV-1 strain SC16 using four different antiviral assays namely, the 24 h virus yield reduction assay, plaque reduction assay, viral antigen inhibition assay, and a viral DNA inhibition assay, to determine the relative merits of each. Penciclovir and acyclovir shared similar activities in the plaque reduction assay (with 50% effective concentrations, EC50, being 0.8 and 0.6 mg/L, respectively) and in the viral antigen inhibition assay (EC50s. 0.6 and 0.7 mg/L, respectively). The EC50 of penciclovir in the 24 h viral DNA inhibition assay was 0.01 mg/L compared with 0.06 mg/L of acyclovir. In the 24 h virus yield reduction assay in which MRC-5 cells were infected with 0.3 pfu/cell, penciclovir was more active than acyclovir with 99% effective concentrations Zanaflex Recreational Dosage of 0.6 mg/L and 1.1 mg/L, respectively. The activity of penciclovir in the 24 h virus yield reduction and antigen inhibition assays was inversely related to the multiplicity of infection, whereas this had considerably less effect on the inhibition of viral DNA synthesis. These results suggest that famciclovir, which is the oral form of penciclovir, will be at least as effective as acyclovir in treating infections caused by HSV-1 and HSV-2.

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

Famciclovir was well tolerated, with a safety profile similar to that of placebo. Famciclovir accelerated lesion healing and reduced the duration of viral shedding. Most importantly, famciclovir recipients had faster resolution of postherpetic neuralgia (approximately twofold faster) than placebo recipients; differences between the placebo group and both the 500-mg famciclovir group (hazard ratio, 1.7 [95% CI, 1.1 to 2.7]) and the 750-mg famciclovir group (hazard ratio, 1.9 [CI, 1.2 to 2.9]) were Diflucan Pill Otc statistically significant (P = 0.02 and 0.01, respectively). The median duration of postherpetic neuralgia was reduced by approximately 2 months.

Agents available to treat herpesvirus infections include Flomax Dosage Medication 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 total of 118 liver transplant recipients were treated with alemtuzumab between August 2002 and August 2005. Twelve patients developed HZ infection, and the cumulative probability of a patient developing HZ infection by 36 months post-transplant +/-1 SE was estimated as 16.5 +/- 5.0%. The median time for Effexor Tablet onset of the infection was 10.2 months (range 4.7-30.7) after the transplant. All patients had only one dermatomal distribution, and none developed systemic infection or complications such as postherpetic neuropathy. All patients except one were treated with systemic intravenous acyclovir. One patient received famciclovir. All of the patients had received ganciclovir during the post-transplant period but were not receiving any other antiviral medication at the time of the infection.

Persistence of significant levels of viremia that are not detected by the branched Cordarone 500 Mg DNA assay may be observed after anti-HBe seroconversion. A precise monitoring of viremia levels with more sensitive assays and HBV mutant strains is warranted in patients undergoing antiviral therapy.

Two recent studies have demonstrated single-day regimens of high-dose antiviral therapy (famciclovir 1000 mg twice daily for genital herpes, and famciclovir 1500 mg single dose for herpes labialis) to be Naprosyn 500mg Tablets effective episodic treatment strategies. Both have the potential to improve patient compliance and therapeutic satisfaction. Patient-initiated episodic therapy (PIE) regimens such as these may improve the time to treatment initiation, which can halt lesion development: PIE allows antiviral drugs to be administered in the narrow therapeutic window that occurs early in the course of a herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection episode. This review article discusses short-course antiviral therapy, which may offer an effective alternative to traditional episodic or suppressive antiviral regimens for HSV-related disease outbreaks.

Twenty healthy male volunteers received single oral doses of famciclovir (125-750 mg), in a Celebrex 800 Mg randomized, single-blind, crossover study. Plasma and urine concentrations of penciclovir and its 6-deoxy precursor, BRL 42359, were determined and penciclovir plasma concentration-time data submitted to model-independent pharmacokinetic analysis. Peak plasma concentrations of penciclovir were obtained at median times of 0.5-0.75 h after dosing. The areas under the concentration versus time curves (AUC) and the peak penciclovir concentration (Cmax) increased linearly with dose of famciclovir. Time to Cmax, elimination half-life, urinary recovery and renal clearance of penciclovir did not change with increasing dose. Famciclovir was excreted via the kidneys as penciclovir (60%) and BRL 42359 (5%), respectively. Famciclovir was well tolerated by all subjects with a low incidence of adverse effects. In conclusion, penciclovir thus displays linear pharmacokinetics in the anticipated therapeutic dose range of famciclovir.

Therapy for infectious diseases resulting from alpha-herpesvirus infections has been dramatically improved by the development of acyclovir (ACV). ACV is highly specific against herpes simplex virus type 1(HSV-1), herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) and varicella-zoster virus (VZV) as ACV is specifically phosphorylated by the thymidine kinases (TKs) of these viruses. These viral TKs are important enzymes for viral replication in vivo; therefore, the growth of TK-deficient mutants is impaired. ACV-resistant viruses are rarely isolated from immunocompetent patients but are frequently obtained from immunocompromised patients. Recently, other anti alpha-herpesvirus drugs, such as valacyclovir and famciclovir, have become available for use in Japan, but the need to develop new antiherpetic compounds with different mechanisms of action remains.

A 75-year-old previously healthy woman was referred for evaluation of pain and foreign body sensation in her left eye of 4 days' duration. Two weeks before presentation she was diagnosed with herpes zoster involving the left forehead and temple area and started on famciclovir treatment. Examination of her left cornea revealed inferior superficial punctate keratitis, but no dendrites or pseudodendrites. Upper eyelid eversion disclosed unusual raised palpebral subconjunctival hemorrhages on the left side. She was started on topical prednisolone eyedrops in the left eye, and her symptoms improved over the following week. Herpes zoster ophthalmicus can initially present in the eyelids. Careful follow-up with particular attention to the eyelids and eyelid eversion is recommended in any patient presenting with herpes zoster to detect early ocular involvement.

Univariate and multivariate analyses indicated that older age, female sex, presence of a prodrome, greater rash severity, and greater acute pain severity made independent contributions to identifying which patients developed PHN. Patients with subacute herpetic neuralgia who did not develop PHN were significantly younger and had less severe acute pain than PHN patients but were significantly more likely to have severe and widespread rash than patients without persisting pain.

The limited oral absorption in rodents of the antiherpesvirus agent 9-(4-hydroxy-3-hydroxymethylbut-l-yl)guanine (BRL 39123 [penciclovir; British approved name]) prompted a search for oral prodrugs. The 6-deoxy derivative of penciclovir (BRL 42359) and the corresponding diacetyl and dipropionyl 6-deoxy derivatives (BRL 42810 [famciclovir; British approved name] and BRL 43599) were tested as oral prodrugs. The in vivo absorption (dose, 0.2 mmol/kg) and the conversion to the active compound, penciclovir, were determined in rats. Compared with the sodium salt of penciclovir given intravenously, the bioavailabilities of penciclovir from orally administered penciclovir, BRL 42359, famciclovir, and BRL 43599 were 1.5, 9, 41, and 27%, respectively. These prodrugs and 6-deoxyacyclovir were tested for stability in rat duodenal contents and for metabolism in rat intestinal wall homogenate, liver homogenate, and blood and in the corresponding human fluids and tissues. Famciclovir was much more stable than BRL 43599 in human duodenal contents (half-lives, greater than 2 h and 7 min, respectively) yet was efficiently converted to penciclovir by the tissue homogenates. The major metabolic pathway was by deacetylation followed by oxidation at the 6 position. The rate of oxidation was comparable to that of 6-deoxyacyclovir, which is known to be converted efficiently to acyclovir in humans. Famciclovir was selected for further evaluation and progression to studies in humans. These subsequent studies confirmed that, after oral dosing with famciclovir, more than half the dose was absorbed and rapidly converted to penciclovir.
