We found 54% (113 of 210) of lung transplant patients developed CMV infection over a 4-year study period with ganciclovir-resistant CMV infection occurring in >5% of patients (6 of 113). The demographic and clinical characteristics of patients who developed ganciclovir-resistant vs -sensitive CMV infection were similar, although 50% (3 of 6) patients who developed resistance were CMV mismatched (D(+)/R(-) serology). All patients' CMV isolates had mutations in the UL97 gene. In addition, the 3 mismatch patients also had CMV with mutations in the UL54 gene.

Herpes simplex virus resistant to acyclovir (ACV) is a major concern among immunocompromised patients. ACV resistance might be due to mutations located in one of the two genes involved in ACV mechanism of action, the thymidine kinase gene (TK, involved in 95% of the cases) and the DNA polymerase gene. TK gene mutations consist, in half of the cases, in nucleotide insertion or deletion, occurring most of the time in G or C homopolymers considered as hot spots. Half of the other cases involves nucleotide substitutions leading to amino acids substitutions. Studies of sensitive strains revealed a high degree of TK polymorphism, many mutations being not implied in ACV resistance. At the present time, resistance detection can be performed by phenotypic tests that require virus culture and results cannot be given to the physician before 7 to 10 days. Genotyping diagnosis performed directly from clinical samples would allow to detect resistance more rapidly, in order to switch quickly to an appropriate treatment by foscarnet or cidofovir.

In case 1, a 24-year-old man presented with decreased vision and an irritated feeling in his eye. He did not wear contact lenses. His initial diagnosis was adenoviral conjunctivitis. One month later, he was diagnosed with atypical herpes simplex keratitis and started on acyclovir. Two weeks later, he was referred to the Cornea Service. Further history revealed the patient to be a professional triathlete who trained by swimming in a fresh water pond. He was found to have an unusually high pain tolerance. Biopsy revealed Acanthamoeba. He was admitted for intensive therapy with neomycin, propamidine isethionate, and polyhexamethylene biguanide. Two years after diagnosis, he has best-corrected visual acuity of 20/100. In case 2, a 28-year-old man with known herpes simplex keratitis presented with decreased vision. He was started on topical trifluridine. After 6 weeks without improvement, he was referred for corneal evaluation. His eye always remained comfortable. Corneal sensation was markedly decreased. Further history revealed that he swam in fresh water. Biopsy was positive for Acanthamoeba. After 1 year of therapy with polyhexamethylene biguanide and neomycin, visual acuity was 20/200, and the patient underwent a corneal transplant.

The ability to monitor tumor responses during prodrug activation gene therapy and other anticancer gene therapies is critical for their translation into clinical practice. Previously, we demonstrated the feasibility of noninvasive in vivo imaging with 131I-5-iodo-2'-fluoro-1-beta-D-arabinofuranosyluracil (131I-FIAU) for monitoring herpes simplex virus type 1 thymidine kinase (HSV1-tk) cancer gene expression in an experimental animal model. Here we tested the efficacy of SPECT with 123I-FIAU and PET with 5-18F-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (18F-FUdR), 2-18F-fluoroethyl-L-tyrosine (18F-FET), and 18F-FDG for monitoring tumor responses during prodrug activation gene therapy with HSV1-tk and ganciclovir (GCV).

In a previous study of prevalidation, a standard operating procedure (SOP) for two independent in vitro tests (human and mouse) had been developed, to evaluate the potential hematotoxicity of xenobiotics from their direct and the adverse effects on granulocyte-macrophages (CFU-GM). A predictive model to calculate the human maximum tolerated dose (MTD) was set up, by adjusting a mouse-derived MTD for the differential interspecies sensitivity. In this paper, we describe an international blind trial designed to apply this model to the clinical neutropenia, by testing 20 drugs, including 14 antineoplastics (Cytosar-U, 5-Fluorouracil, Myleran, Thioguanine, Fludarabine, Bleomycin, Methotrexate, Gemcitabine, Carmustine, Etoposide, Teniposide, Cytoxan, Taxol, Adriamycin); two antivirals (Retrovir, Zovirax,); three drugs for other therapeutic indications (Cyclosporin, Thorazine, Indocin); and one pesticide (Lindane). The results confirmed that the SOP developed generates reproducible IC90 values with both human and murine GM-CFU. For 10 drugs (Adriamycin, Bleomycin, Etoposide, Fludarabine, 5-Fluorouracil, Myleran, Taxol, Teniposide, Thioguanine, and Thorazine), IC90 values were found within the range of the actual drug doses tested (defined as the actual IC90). For the other 10 drugs (Carmustine, Cyclosporin, Cytosar-U, Cytoxan, Gemcitabine, Indocin, Lindane, Methotrexate, Retrovir, and Zovirax) extrapolation on the regression curve out of the range of the actual doses tested was required to derive IC90 values (extrapolated IC90). The model correctly predicted the human MTD for 10 drugs out of 10 that had "actual IC90 values" and 7 drugs out of 10 for those having only an extrapolated IC90. Two of the incorrect predictions (Gemcitabine and Zovirax) were within 6-fold of the correct MTD, instead of the 4-fold range required by the model, whereas the prediction with Cytosar-U was approximately 10-fold in error. A possible explanation for the failure in the prediction of these three drugs, which are pyrimidine analogs, is discussed. We concluded that our model correctly predicted the human MTD for 20 drugs out of 23, since the other three drugs (Topotecan, PZA, and Flavopiridol) were tested in the prevalidation study. The high percentage of predicitivity (87%), as well as the reproducibility of the SOP testing, confirm that the model can be considered scientifically validated in this study, suggesting promising applications to other areas of research in developing validated hematotoxicological in vitro methods.

The present study was designed to develop and compare acyclovir containing nano-vesicular liposomes and niosomes based on cholesterol, soya L-alpha-lecithin and nonionic surfactant, span 20. The effort was made to study in vitro whether acyclovir-loaded nanovesicles could sustain the release of the drug by increasing residence time and thus, acyclovir could reduce its dose-related systemic toxicity. There were good vesicular distributions in both of the niosomes and the liposomes. The obtained vesicles were within 1 microm and about 35% of them were within a size of 100 nm. The percentage of drug loading varied and the niosomal vesicles contained more drug as compared with the liposomes. When the in vitro drug release was compared, it was found that the liposomes released about 90% drug in 150 min whereas the drug release was just 50% from the niosomal vesicles in 200 min. Again, the niosomes showed better stability compared with the liposomes. Thus, niosome could be a better choice for intravenous delivery of acyclovir.

We investigated the effect of acyclovir to the evolution of cutaneous changes and acute herpetic neuralgia at the time of herpes zoster infection. The examined group of 47 patients predominantly consisted of women in older ages, with anamnestic data usually referring to the chronic disease or stress as a provoking factor. In case of 19 patients the therapy was initiated in the phase of maculopapular changes, in 24 patients it was in the phase of vesicular changes and in 4 patients in the phase of encrustation. The evolution of cutaneous changes was accelerated under the acyclovir therapy regardless of the phase in which it was initiated. The intensity and duration of acute herpetic neuralgia directly depended on the time of therapy initiation. The patients who were given the therapy in time (not later than 6 days after the disease onset) reported the pain of lower intensity which completely ceased at the time of hospital discharge.

Orbital apex syndrome is a rare complication of herpes zoster ophthalmicus. In addition to our case, we review the clinical presentation, imaging findings, treatment options, and prognosis of 14 other reported cases. Magnetic resonance imaging of our patient demonstrated diffuse enhancement of the orbit involving the orbital apex, optic nerve and/or nerve sheath, extraocular muscles, and orbital soft tissues. There was significant clinical improvement with acyclovir and systemic corticosteroids, which seems to be preferred treatment for this disorder.

Herpes simplex virus (HSV), a member of the Herpesviridae family, is a significant human pathogen that results in mucocutaneous lesions in the oral cavity or genital infections. Acyclovir (ACV) and related nucleoside analogues can successfully treat HSV infections, but the emergence of drug resistance to ACV has created a barrier for the treatment of HSV infections, especially in immunocompromised patients. There is an urgent need to explore new and effective tactics to circumvent drug resistance to HSV. This review summarises the current strategies in the development of new targets (the DNA helicase/primase (H/P) complex), new types of molecules (nature products) and new antiviral mechanisms (lethal mutagenesis of Janus-type nucleosides) to fight the drug resistance of HSV.

One-day-old Guangxi shelducks injected intraperitoneally with strong positive duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV) serum were used to establish a duck hepatitis B animal model in the study. The ducks were respectively administered in different groups with low-, middle- and high-dose alcohol extracts of Acanthus ilicifolius L., the positive control drug acyclovir (ACV) and double-distilled water. The levels of serum DHBV DNA were detected by fluorescence quantitative PCR (FQ-PCR). Duck hepatitis B surface antigen (DHBsAg) and duck hepatitis B e antigen (DHBeAg) OD values in the serum were measured by ELISA. The activity of Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) and Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) in the serum was measured, and the livers were taken for histopathological examination.

Pan-histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors, which inhibit 11 HDAC isoforms, are widely used to induce Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) lytic cycle in EBV-associated cancers in vitro and in clinical trials. Here, we hypothesized that inhibition of one or several specific HDAC isoforms by selective HDAC inhibitors could potently induce EBV lytic cycle in EBV-associated malignancies such as nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and gastric carcinoma (GC). We found that inhibition of class I HDACs, particularly HDAC-1, -2 and -3, was sufficient to induce EBV lytic cycle in NPC and GC cells in vitro and in vivo. Among a panel of selective HDAC inhibitors, the FDA-approved HDAC inhibitor romidepsin was found to be the most potent lytic inducer, which could activate EBV lytic cycle at ∼0.5 to 5 nM (versus ∼800 nM achievable concentration in patients' plasma) in more than 75% of cells. Upregulation of p21(WAF1) , which is negatively regulated by class I HDACs, was observed before the induction of EBV lytic cycle. The upregulation of p21(WAF1) and induction of lytic cycle were abrogated by a specific inhibitor of PKC-δ but not the inhibitors of PI3K, MEK, p38 MAPK, JNK or ATM pathways. Interestingly, inhibition of HDAC-1, -2 and -3 by romidepsin or shRNA knockdown could confer susceptibility of EBV-positive epithelial cells to the treatment with ganciclovir (GCV). In conclusion, we demonstrated that inhibition of class I HDACs by romidepsin could potently induce EBV lytic cycle and mediate enhanced cell death with GCV, suggesting potential application of romidepsin for the treatment of EBV-associated cancers.

Fifteen observational studies (333 patients with UC with CMV, 43.2% treated with antiviral agents) were identified, of which 8 stratified patients according to CS-refractory disease (55.4% treated with antiviral agents). Antiviral therapy resulted in a significantly lower risk of colectomy in patients with CS-refractory disease (odds ratio, 0.20; 95% confidence interval, 0.08-0.49; I = 0%) but not in the overall population of patients with UC (odds ratio, 0.92; 95% confidence interval, 0.31-2.76; I = 65). The quality evidence was low. The results were stable when restricting the analysis to patients with a tissue diagnosis of CMV and studies that defined CS-refractory disease as a failure to respond to intravenous CS.

Formulation parameters such as drug to polymer ratio, antisolvent selection, electrolyte (NaCl) addition, pH alteration and temperature were screened to improve the entrapment efficiency of acyclovir in PLA NPs. The temperature of the system (0-5 °C), phase volume ratio (1:2), stirring speed (2000 rpm), sonication time (5 min), etc. were kept constant during the preparation of NPs. Drug to polymer ratio and electrolyte addition emerged as critical formulation parameters affecting particle size as well as entrapment efficiency. Hence, in the present investigation a 3(2) full factorial design was used to investigate the combined influence of two factors, i.e. drug to polymer ratio (X1) and the amount of electrolyte, i.e. NaCl (X2) on particle size (Y1) and entrapment efficiency (Y2). The NPs were also evaluated for drug-excipient compatibility study by employing DSC and FT-IR analysis, whereas in vitro drug release studies were performed using dialysis bag technique in phosphate buffer pH 7.4.

zovirax drug interactions

Advanced esophageal cancers are highly malignant and frequently resistant to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). Escherichia coli uracil phosphoribosyltransferase (UP) is a pyrimidine salvage enzyme that alters 5-FU metabolism and sensitivity. A recombinant adenovirus encoding the UP gene (AxCA.UP) has been applied in gastric cancer gene therapy to sensitize cancer cells to lower concentrations of 5-FU. We have generated a recombinant adenovirus (AxCA.UT) encoding UP and herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase fusion protein (UT) to examine whether it would enhance the antitumor activity of AxCA.UP treatment. AxCA.UT treatment significantly enhanced the sensitivity of human esophageal cancer cells to and significantly enhanced the growth inhibition effects of UP gene therapy in vitro. Moreover, both 5-FU and ganciclovir showed bystander effects on growth inhibition. In an in vivo study, the therapeutic outcome of AxCA.UT treatment significantly enhanced the antitumor activity of AxCA.UP treatment. These observations suggest that AxCA.UT may be useful in esophageal cancer gene therapy.

To enhance the efficacy of suicide gene therapy for prostate cancer under androgen deprivation, we designed a promoter system that consists of the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) promoter / enhancer (PEPM) and Cre-loxP DNA recombination system. We constructed two kinds of plasmids. One plasmid contains a Cre recombinase (Cre) under the control of PEPM and the other expresses CMV-lox-luciferase / herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (TK). In PSMA-positive LNCaP cells, the promoter activity of the PEPM-Cre plus CMV-lox-luciferase demonstrated 800-fold greater activity compared with that of the PSMA promoter alone. However, no enhancement of the promoter activity was observed in the PSMA-negative cells. Furthermore, in contrast to prostate specific antigen promoter / enhancer (PP), the promoter activity of PEPM did not decrease when the LNCaP cells were cultured in charcoal-stripped fetal bovine serum (CFBS). In an in vitro gene therapy model with LNCaP cells, the cell growth inhibition in the presence of ganciclovir (GCV) was more evident in the cells transfected with the PEPM-Cre plus CMV-lox-TK than in the cells with the PP-TK, and the difference in efficacy between the two plasmids was more remarkable when the cells were maintained in CFBS medium. The therapeutic effect of PEPM-Cre plus CMV-lox-TK was also observed in xenografted LNCaP cells on nude mice when the plasmids were directly injected into tumors and GCV was administered intraperitoneally. These findings indicate that the combination of the PSMA promoter / enhancer and the Cre-loxP system can enhance the PSMA promoter activity even under androgen ablation conditions and can exert its anti-tumor effect both in vitro and in vivo.

We identified a novel class of 4-oxo-dihydroquinolines represented by PNU-183792 which specifically inhibit herpesvirus polymerases. PNU-183792 was highly active against human cytomegalovirus (HCMV, IC(50) value 0.69 microM), varicella zoster virus (VZV, IC(50) value 0.37 microM) and herpes simplex virus (HSV, IC(50) value 0.58 microM) polymerases but was inactive (IC(50) value >40 microM) against human alpha (alpha), gamma (gamma), or delta (delta) polymerases. In vitro antiviral activity against HCMV was determined using cytopathic effect, plaque reduction and virus yield reduction assays (IC(50) ranging from 0.3 to 2.4 microM). PNU-183792 antiviral activity against both VZV (IC(50) value 0.1 microM) and HSV (IC(50) ranging from 3 to 5 microM) was analyzed using plaque reduction assays. PNU-183792 was also active (IC(50) ranging 0.1-0.7 microM) in cell culture assays against simian varicella virus (SVV), murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) and rat cytomegalovirus (RCMV). Cell culture activity was compared with the appropriate licensed drugs ganciclovir (GCV), cidofovir (CDV) and acyclovir (ACV). PNU-183792 was also active against both GCV-resistant and CDV-resistant HCMV and against ACV-resistant HSV. Toxicity assays using four different species of proliferating mammalian cells indicated PNU-183792 was not cytotoxic at relevant drug concentrations (CC(50) value >100 microM). PNU-183792 was inactive against unrelated DNA and RNA viruses indicating specificity for herpesviruses. In animals, PNU-183792 was orally bioavailable and was efficacious in a model of lethal MCMV infection.

Basic science advances include reports of new resistance mutations and multidrug resistance. Innovative studies of the host immune response have shed light on differential risk. New laboratory techniques buy zovirax include rapid assays for resistance and measurement of ganciclovir levels. Clinical developments include studies on ganciclovir-resistant cytomegalovirus infection in thoracic transplant recipients and aspects of cytomegalovirus infection prevention. Although no resistance was seen in the valganciclovir arm of a prophylaxis trial, resistance has been described after both prophylactic and preemptive valganciclovir therapy. In the HIV realm, the incidence of ganciclovir-resistant cytomegalovirus infection has fallen dramatically. Newer options for therapy include maribavir, leflunomide, high-dose ganciclovir, switching to a sirolimus-based regimen, and the antimalarial drug, artesunate.

In vitro treatment of transduced buy zovirax Gl261 cells with both 5-FU and GC showed enhanced cytotoxic effect compared with single agents. Combination of drug treatments with irradiation greatly increased cytotoxicity. In subcutaneous and intracranial tumours double-agent treatment was more effective than a single drug. Combination with local irradiation highly improved the anti-tumour effect (90-100% survival) even when only part of the tumour cells carried drug-sensitising genes (40-50% survival at 10% rate). Treatment of established tumours with direct intra-tumour Adex-CAUPTK inoculations and intraperitoneal 5-FU, GC injections slowed down tumour progression that was further enhanced by local irradiation.

A significant difference was detected between valaciclovir and placebo in the time to first recurrence of genital HSV infection. The hazard ratio [95% confidence interval] for valaciclovir v placebo was 0.155 [0.112, 0.214], p < 0.0001. Valaciclovir prevented or delayed 85% of the recurrences that would have occurred with placebo. After 16 weeks (day 112) with treatment, 69% of patients receiving valaciclovir were recurrence free compared with only 9.5% of buy zovirax patients assigned to placebo. The safety profiles of valaciclovir and placebo were comparable, with adverse experiences being infrequent and generally mild.

The emergence of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) resistance to current antivirals as acyclovir (ACV) constitutes a hindrance buy zovirax to antiviral treatment effectiveness of VZV infections, especially in immunocompromised patients. The molecular mechanisms of VZV resistance reported so far rely on the presence of mutations within thymidine kinase (TK, ORF36) and DNA polymerase (ORF28) viral genes. The aim of this work was to develop reliable and complementary diagnostic methods to detect VZV antiviral resistance: (i) a genotypic assay based on TK and DNA polymerase genes sequencing, (ii) a plaque reduction assay to determine antiviral 50% effective concentrations, and (iii) a functional assay to evaluate in vitro phosphorylation activity of recombinant TKs. As a whole, this study included the analysis of 21 VZV clinical isolates and 62 biological samples from patients experiencing VZV infection. Genetic analysis revealed 3 and 9 new amino acid changes that have not been previously described within the highly conserved TK and DNA polymerase, respectively. Then, VZV isolates bearing newly identified mutations considered as natural polymorphisms were characterized as susceptible to ACV using plaque-reduction assay in MeWo cells. In parallel, the impact of TK changes on ACV phosphorylation activity was examined using a nonradioactive in vitro enzymatic assay.

Nearly all glioblastomas (GBMs), brain tumours with very poor prognosis, are infected with human cytomegalovirus (CMV). The anti-CMV drug valganciclovir (VGCV) has shown promise as a treatment option for patients with GBM, but its penetration into the central nervous system (CNS) is unknown. Here we describe a patient with GMB receiving VGCV in whom an intracerebral microdialysis catheter was implanted and ganciclovir (GCV) concentrations in brain extracellular fluid (BECF) and serum were monitored. GCV was rapidly absorbed. Cmax values (at 3 h) in serum and BECF were 19.6 and 10.2 µmol/L, T½ values were 3.2 and 4.5 h, and plasma and BECF AUC0-∞ values were 90.7 and 75.9 µmol h/L, respectively. Thus, VGCV treatment results in significant intracerebral levels of GCV that may be sufficient for therapeutic effects. Further studies of buy zovirax this drug in patients with GBM are warranted.

We used a number of tumor cell lines from different species and histological types in 2D monolayers or 3D multicellular tumor spheroid (MCTS) models. To assess whether the ECM is a barrier to tumor cell targeting by AAVP, we depleted the ECM using collagenase, hyaluronidase, or combination of both. We employed multiple techniques to investigate and quantify the effect of ECM depletion on ECM composition (including collagen type I, hyaluronic acid, fibronectin and laminin), buy zovirax and how AAVP adsorption, internalisation, gene expression and therapeutic efficacy are subsequently affected. Data were analyzed using a student's t test when comparing two groups or one-way ANOVA and post hoc Tukey tests when using more than two groups.

Stability tests showed that none of the formulations were completely stable. Acyclovir showed a biphasic character during the in vitro skin diffusion studies for all the tested formulations. The Pheroid™ cream enhanced the transdermal, SC-epidermis and epidermis-dermis delivery of acyclovir the most. The average amount of ketoconazole diffused over buy zovirax 12 h showed improved delivery of ketoconazole, with the Pheroid™ emulgel exhibiting the best transdermal and epidermis-dermis delivery.

In vitro, mixed tk + BEL-7402 cells and tk-BEL-7402 cells in diverse proportions and ganciclovir (GCV) was given, then tested the survival ratio of cells by MTT. In vivo, 5 x 10(6) and 5 x 10(7) tk + BEL-7402 cells were injected into the tumors in nude mice following GCV. The change Zetia 10mg Tab of the size of the tumors was observed. To observe distance bystander effect, adenovirues with HSV-tk (1 x 10(9) PFU) were injected into the tumor, which was the one of the bilateral tumors in nude mice. Subsequently, GCV was given and the change of the tumor was observed.

Tumor cells expressing the herpes simplex virus type 1 thymidine kinase (HSV-tk) gene are killed by nucleoside analogues such as ganciclovir (GCV). GCV affects not only the cells expressing HSV-tk but also neighboring cells that do not express the gene; this phenomenon commonly is called "bystander effect." GCV metabolites transfer via gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC) accounts for the bystander effect in different cell lines, but other mechanisms have also been described. In this study, we analyzed the mechanisms of the bystander effect in two cell lines exhibiting different capacities of communication (DHD/K12 and 9L). The 9L cells exhibited a very good bystander effect, which was completely blocked by a long-term inhibitor of GJIC, 18 alpha-glycyrrhetinic acid. DHD/K12 cells exhibited a moderate bystander effect that was not abolished by 18 alpha-glycyrrhetinic acid or 1-octanol, another strong inhibitor of GJIC. Interestingly, we also observed a bystander effect in cultures where HSV-tk-expressing DHD/K12 cells were physically separated from their untransfected counterparts but grown in the same medium. Moreover, the transfer of filtered conditioned medium from GCV-treated HSV-tk-expressing DHD/K12 cells to DHD/K12 parental cells induced a decrease of survival in a concentration-dependent manner, suggesting that the bystander effect in this cell line was mediated by a Prilosec 5 Mg soluble factor.

The study involved investigating 84 HSV strains, 49 HIV-infected patients, and 19 control patients. In the control group, no strains resistant to acyclovir were present and infection recurred in only one patient. In patients with HIV Arava Overdose infection, one acyclovir resistant strain was detected and one moderately resistant to acyclovir, with good response to acyclovir treatment. In this group, 24.4% of patients presented recurrent infection. No resistance to foscarnet was detected.

A recent meta-analysis evaluated prophylactic regimens in immunocompetent hosts, and proposed four alternatives with similar efficacies: three twice-daily regimens (i.e. acyclovir 400 mg, valaciclovir 250 mg and famciclovir 250 mg) and one once-daily regimen (valaciclovir 500 mg). Immunocompromised patients may have more prolonged, frequent and severe episodes of genital herpes. Valaciclovir 500 mg twice daily maintains the benefits of acyclovir treatment in terms of clinical efficacy and safety. Alternative therapies in case of clinical failure are discussed. Development of new strategies is moving in three directions: improvement in antiviral therapy or identification of new drug Plavix Cost targets; local immune therapy; and vaccination. Many prophylactic and therapeutic vaccination approaches have been explored, but no effective vaccine is presently available.

We recommend a phase II valacyclovir dose of 30 mg/kg 3 times daily for 40 days. We also observed that 6 of our 12 patients with presumed Burkitt lymphoma had measurable EBV viral loads that decreased over the course of their treatment, suggesting that phase II studies should investigate this correlation further. This Nolvadex 20 Mg study paves the way for a phase II efficacy trial of combined valacyclovir and CPM in the treatment of endemic Burkitt lymphoma.

Acyclovir-resistant HSV isolates were correctly identified by all methods. In contrast, there were 6-67% of susceptible isolates incorrectly characterized as drug-resistant. Variables associated with these errors included testing site, assay method, cell line and antiviral. A549, DNA hybridization, and penciclovir were associated with the highest IC(50)'s, whereas the PRA, EIA, and human fibroblast-monolayers provided the best differentiation between susceptible and resistant HSV isolates.

There is a paucity of data examining the efficacy of valganciclovir (VGC) for cytomegalovirus (CMV) prophylaxis in kidney transplant patients, particularly with regard to utilization of a risk-stratified dosing regimen. Eighty adult African-American (AA) renal allograft recipients transplanted from November 3, 2001 to May 28, 2003 and followed for 22 +/- 8 months received VGC once daily for 90 d post-transplant dosed according to donor/recipient (D/R) serostatus: high risk (D+/R-) received 900 mg (n = 12); moderate risk (D+/R+, D-/R+) received 450 mg (n = 60); and low risk (D-/R-) received no prophylaxis (n = 8). Thymoglobulin or basiliximab was used for induction, and mycophenolate mofetil, prednisone, and either tacrolimus or sirolimus for maintenance immunosuppression. Only six patients (7.5%) developed symptomatic CMV infection diagnosed by pp65 antigenemia, three in the high-risk (25%) and three in the moderate-risk (5%) group (p = 0.02). All patients were on tacrolimus for at least 3 months prior to diagnosis. There were no cases of tissue-invasive disease, resistance to treatment, or recurrence. D+/R- serostatus was the only significant independent predictor for CMV infection using multivariate analysis (odds ratio 10.5; p = 0.04). Thymoglobulin induction was not associated with CMV infection. None of 43 patients who were exposed to sirolimus for >30 d developed CMV infection, vs. six of 37 who were not (p = 0.006). We conclude that VGC dosed according to D/R serostatus provides safe and effective CMV prophylaxis in AA renal allograft recipients.
