Manifestations of herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO) infection are well known in HIV-seropositive White patients in developed countries, but this association has not been previously noted in African AIDS patients. This paper analyzes 8 cases (3 men and 5 women) 24-40 years of age who were treated at the Eye Department of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Enugu, for HZO in 1994-97. Of the 6 patients who consented to HIV screening, 4 were HIV-seropositive. One of the HIV-infected patients had been treated for pulmonary tuberculosis a year prior to the present illness, but the remaining 7 were in apparent good health. The patients presented with skin eruptions in the area of distribution of the trigeminal nerve on the affected side of the face and head. Visual acuity was impaired in all 8 cases. The most common ocular findings were lid edema, ptosis, conjunctival infection, corneal anesthesia, keratitis, uveal inflammation, and abnormal pupillary reaction. The severity of presentation was similar in HIV-positive and HIV-negative patients and all improved during follow-up; however, clinical improvement was less rapid or pronounced among the HIV-positive patients. These findings suggest that HZO infection in young Africans should be regarded as a possible indicator of HIV infection.

The transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) through transplantation of human tissues and organs is rare but not impossible. A 27-year-old Bulgarian woman received a kidney transplant from a cadaveric donor owing to chronic renal failure due to glomerulonephritis of unknown etiology. Five days after the donation, the tissues showed HIV-1 infection, so she was immediately initiated on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) with lopinavir/ritonavir, zidovudine, enfuvirtide, and lamivudine. Subsequently, according to the genotypic test which revealed a complex resistance pattern of the HIV-1, we changed the regimen to darunavir/ritonavir, etravirine, lamivudine, and enfuvirtide. The HIV-1 genome (550 UI/mL), which was detected at 5 days after transplantation, rapidly declined to undetectable levels at 3 weeks after HAART. The CD4+ T-cell nadir was 432 cells/microL (40%) to 1,400 cells/microL after 2 years. The posttransplantation course was complicated by cytomegalovirus pneumonia. At 32 months after transplantation, the patient had experienced hypertension with secondary retinopathy, bilateral cataracts, diabetes, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis with multiple vertebral fractures, a hip prosthesis, and a bone infarction of the femur. Major management problems had been related to steroid and HAART treatment side effects. Therapeutic interactions between the immunosuppressants and the antiretroviral drugs were complex for management, requiring frequent checks of drug levels and dose-adjustments. We finally obtained a stable clinical and viroimmunologic condition. The transmission of multiresistant strains of HIV from unknown patients requires complex multidisciplinary management.

Uniform acyclovir-resistant or acyclovir-sensitive sequential isolates were identified in 4 and 2 patients, respectively. Notably, the acyclovir susceptibility of sequential isolates changed from acyclovir sensitive to acyclovir resistant (5 patients) or from acyclovir resistant to acyclovir sensitive (3 patients). The acyclovir-resistant phenotype of the isolates correlated with the patient's unresponsiveness to acyclovir therapy. Combined analyses of the TK gene and genotype of sequential isolates showed that acyclovir-sensitive isolates contained multiple acyclovir-resistant variants of the same virus and that an identical acyclovir-resistant HSV-1 strain reappeared in the patient's cornea during RHK episodes.

Pancreas transplantation is an effective treatment option for patients with complicated diabetes mellitus. Pancreas allograft recipients are followed with laboratory markers such as serum amylase, lipase and glucose levels. Hyperglycemia may indicate severe acute rejection and has recently been associated with antibody-mediated (humoral) rejection. In this report, we describe a unique case of a pancreas-after-kidney (PAK) transplant recipient with the rare presentation of pancreatic panniculitis, biopsy-proven severe acute cellular and antibody-mediated pancreas allograft rejection and surprisingly well-preserved endocrine function despite treatment with high dose steroids. We discuss the clinicopathologic features of antibody-mediated pancreas rejection, including the importance of correlating pancreas allograft biopsy, C4d staining and donor specific antibodies, to diagnose antibody-mediated rejection and initiate the correct treatment.

Several recent studies have indicated that conventional multiround infectivity assays are inferior to single cycle assays at both low and high levels of inhibition. Multiround infectivity assays can fail to detect subtle but clinically significant anti-HIV activity. The discoveries of the anti-HIV activity of the hepatitis B drug entecavir and the herpes simplex drug acyclovir were facilitated by single-round infectivity assays. Recent studies using a single-round infectivity assay have shown that a previously neglected parameter, the dose-response curve slope, is an extremely important determinant of antiviral activity. Some antiretroviral drugs have steep slopes that result in extraordinary levels of antiviral activity. The instantaneous inhibitory potential, the log reduction in infectivity in a single-round assay at clinical drug concentrations, has been proposed as a novel index for comparing antiviral activity.

The authors report the case of a patient aged 60-year-old who survived ulcerative colitis complicated by toxic megacolon and disseminated intravascular coagulation. This patient was not known for this ulcerative colitis and was first hospitalised for a suspicion of diverticulitis. The admission symptoms were fever, abdominal pain and bloody diarrhoea. The evolution was defavorable under antibiotics and sulfasalazine. The patient was readmitted 5 days after he left hospital, and the diagnosis of UC was based on colon biopsy made during the first hospitalisation. A treatment with methylprednisolone was started and the patient worsened day by day with apparition of toxic megacolon and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Subtotal colectomy was performed for degradation of general status and coagulation factors. Pathological findings confirmed ulcerative colitis with toxic megacolon. Cytomegalovirus inclusions were demonstrated on the colonic specimen and confirmed by PCR. In this report the authors discuss the etiology of toxic megacolon and disseminated intravascular coagulation in ulcerative colitis surinfected by cytomegalovirus. Mortality of these pathologies is high necessitating rapid diagnosis of cytomegalovirus infection by sigmoid biopsy. Management requires immunosupression interruption and ganciclovir therapy, or surgery in unsuccessful medical treatment.

A 45-year-old white man with long-standing, multidrug-resistant human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and severe immunodeficiency despite multiple antiretroviral drug regimens, presented to the eye clinic reporting decreased vision and spider web patterns in his left eye for the past week. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in the right (O.D.) and 20/25 in the left eye (O.S.). Dilated funduscopic examination of the left eye found vasculitis of the midperipheral inferonasal arcade in the midperiphery, with surrounding intraretinal hemorrhage and granular retinal necrosis. Diagnosis of cytomegalovirus retinitis was made, and the patient began induction therapy with oral valganciclovir 900 mg twice a day for 3 weeks. Maintenance therapy after retinitis stabilization was 900 mg every day until any observed recurrence of infection. Three months after complete resolution of the active retinitis, the patient returned to the clinic reporting new floaters of recent onset. A reactivation of the CMV retinitis warranted a reinduction with valganciclovir 900 mg orally twice a day for 3 weeks.

We enrolled 326 centrally confirmed cases of AIS and 115 stroke-free controls with trauma (29 days to 18 years of age) with acute blood samples (≤3 weeks after stroke/trauma); cases had convalescent samples (7-28 days later) when feasible. Samples were tested by commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kits for immunoglobulin M/immunoglobulin G antibodies to herpes simplex virus 1 and 2, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and varicella zoster virus. An algorithm developed a priori classified serological evidence of past and acute herpesvirus infection as dichotomous variables. The median (quartiles) age was 7.7 (3.1-14.3) years for cases and 10.7 (6.9-13.2) years for controls (P=0.03). Serological evidence of past infection did not differ between cases and controls. However, serological evidence of acute herpesvirus infection doubled the odds of childhood AIS, even after adjusting for age, race, and socioeconomic status (odds ratio, 2.2; 95% confidence interval, 1.2-4.0; P=0.007). Among 187 cases with acute and convalescent blood samples, 85 (45%) showed evidence of acute herpesvirus infection; herpes simplex virus 1 was found most often. Most infections were asymptomatic.

Nauclea latifolia Smith, a shrub belonging to the family Rubiaceae is a very popular medicinal plant in Cameroon and neighboring countries where it is used to treat jaundice, yellow fever, rheumatism, abdominal pains, hepatitis, diarrhea, dysentery, hypertension, as well as diabetes. The ethno-medicinal use against yellow fever, jaundice and diarrhea prompted us to investigate on the antiviral activity of the root bark of N. latifolia. In this study, HSV-2 was chosen as a viral model because of its strong impact on HIV transmission and acquisition.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a common cause of morbidity and mortality among patients receiving chronic maintenance immunosuppression and is often considered the most important infection in renal transplantation. CMV gastritis has been reported in transplant patients. We present a case of CMV gastritis with epigastric pain that decreased in supine position, increased while sitting, and further increased when standing or walking. To our knowledge this is the second article presented to the literature so far.

Two patients with lysinuric protein intolerance (LPI) had near-fatal generalized varicella infection with severe interstitial pneumonitis, hepatitis, decreased platelet count, bleeding and hypoalbuminaemia. Active haemolysis resulted in anaemia and massive haemoglobinuria. Serum lactate dehydrogenase activity and ferritin concentration, which in patients with LPI in normal circumstances exceed the upper reference values 3-folds to 10-fold, increased to > 10,000 U/L and > 10,000 micrograms/L, respectively. The patients were treated with fresh frozen plasma, red-cell transfusions and intravenous acyclovir for 14 days, and recovered clinically in a month. Retrospectively, 3 of the 32 other known Finnish patients with LPI had had varicella infection that had been more severe than that in the other children in the family or in subjects in the neighbourhood and had led to hospital admission. Varicella antibodies were measured in 24 patients; 5 had no antibodies and 5 had very low antibody titres. Primary vaccination of three patients with living varicella vaccine increased antibody titres measurably in one patient. We suggest that patients with LPI who have no varicella zoster antibodies should be treated with acyclovir if exposed to varicella and should be (re)vaccinated against chickenpox.

Mexican oregano (Lippia graveolens) is a plant found in Mexico and Central America that is traditionally used as a medicinal herb. In the present study, we investigated the antiviral activity of the essential oil of Mexican oregano and its major component, carvacrol, against different human and animal viruses. The MTT test (3-4,5-dimethythiazol-2yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide) was conducted to determine the selectivity index (SI) of the essential oil, which was equal to 13.1, 7.4, 10.8, 9.7, and 7.2 for acyclovir-resistant herpes simplex virus type 1 (ACVR-HHV-1), acyclovir-sensitive HHV-1, human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV), bovine herpesvirus type 2 (BoHV-2), and bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV), respectively. The human rotavirus (RV) and BoHV-1 and 5 were not inhibited by the essential oil. Carvacrol alone exhibited high antiviral activity against RV with a SI of 33, but it was less efficient than the oil for the other viruses. Thus, Mexican oregano oil and its main component, carvacrol, are able to inhibit different human and animal viruses in vitro. Specifically, the antiviral effects of Mexican oregano oil on ACVR-HHV-1 and HRSV and of carvacrol on RV justify more detailed studies.

Acyclovir has been conjugated to the acyclic isoprenoid chain of squalene to form the squalenoyl-acyclovir prodrug. Its interaction with biomembrane models constituted by dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) monolayers has been studied by employing the Langmuir-Blodgett technique. The aim of the work was to gain information on the interaction of these compounds with phospholipid membranes. DMPC/acyclovir or squalenoyl-acyclovir prodrug mixed monolayers have been prepared at increasing molar fractions of the compound and the isotherm mean molecular area/surface pressure has been registered at 10 and 37 degrees C. Results reveal that the squalenoyl moiety enhances the affinity of acyclovir for the biomembrane model.

The log P values of n-octanol/water for some guanine derivatives, acyclovir, deoxyaciclovir and their acetyl congeners, were calculated by some commercially available computer programs for log P calculation. These values were compared with those obtained by the conventional shake-flask method. It was established that the calculations of log P values for examined guanine derivatives by these computation programs do not give reliable results.

The dissolution and subsequent oral bioavailability of acyclovir (ACY) is limited by its poor aqueous solubility. An attempt has been made in this work to provide mechanistic insights into the solubility enhancement and dissolution of ACY by using the water-soluble carrier polyethylene glycol 6000 (PEG6000). Solid dispersions with varying ratios of the drug (ACY) and carrier (PEG6000) were prepared and evaluated by phase solubility, in vitro release studies, kinetic analysis, in situ perfusion, and in vitro permeation studies. Solid state characterization was done by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analysis, and surface morphology was assessed by polarizing microscopic image analysis, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance analysis. Thermodynamic parameters indicated the solubilization effect of the carrier. The aqueous solubility and dissolution of ACY was found to be higher in all samples. The findings of XRD, DSC, FTIR and NMR analysis confirmed the formation of solid solution, crystallinity reduction, and the absence of interaction between the drug and carrier. SEM and AFM analysis reports ratified the particle size reduction and change in the surface morphology in samples. The permeation coefficient and amount of ACY diffused were higher in samples in comparison to pure ACY. Stability was found to be higher in dispersions. The results suggest that the study findings provided clear mechanical insights into the solubility and dissolution enhancement of ACY in PEG6000, and such findings could lay the platform for resolving the poor aqueous solubility issues in formulation development.

This study evaluated the synergistic effect of Allium sativum (AS) with suicide gene therapy for transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder. Subcutaneous TCCs were established in syngeneic C3H/He mice with 1 x 10(5) MBT-2 cells. AS liquid extract was injected at the site of tumor transplantation on Day 1 for three weeks (Experiment I) and into the established tumors weekly for five weeks (Experiment II) in combination with or without gene therapy using a replication-defective adenoviral vector containing a herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (HSV-TK) gene under the transcriptional control of Rous sarcoma virus (RSV) promoter (Ad-RSV-TK, 5 x 10(8) plaque-forming units) plus ganciclovir (20 mg/kg/day i.p.). AS demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in incidence of TCC (cumulative dose 25 mg of AS). Combination AS-suicide gene therapy significantly inhibited the tumor growth compared with the controls, which was evidenced by apoptosis on histomorphological and immunohistochemical studies. These results suggest that AS had a definite antitumor effect in inhibiting tumorigenesis and growth of TCC in a murine model. AS treatment combined with suicide gene therapy had significant additive antitumor effects on TCC and may provide a novel and effective treatment modality for TCC of the bladder.

An ultra high performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry method was established for the rapid and simultaneous analysis of seven antiviral drugs, amantadine, rimantadine, memantine, moroxydine, imiquimod, oseltamivir, and acyclovir, in chicken liver, muscle, and egg. Homogenized samples were extracted with trichloroacetic acid and acetonitrile solutions and then purified by cation-exchange solid-phase extraction. The target drugs were analyzed by liquid chromatography with a UPLC BEH Amide column (2.1 mm × 100 mm, 1.7 μm) coupled with a tandem mass spectrometer operating in the positive multiple-reaction mode. A perfectly linear relationship was obtained within the concentration ranges of 0.5-20 μg/L for acyclovir and 0.1-10 μg/L for the other six antiviral drugs. The average recoveries of the seven antiviral drugs using four addition levels in chicken liver, muscle, and eggs were 82.67-90.10, 82.30-92.27, and 81.98-93.77%, respectively, and the acceptable coefficients buy zovirax of variation were 5.18-9.88, 4.84-11.2, and 42.8-9.95%, respectively. The detection limits and detection capabilities of the analysis method for the seven antiviral drugs were in the ranges of 0.04-0.64 and 0.11-0.78 μg/kg, respectively. Additionally, an inter-laboratory study among five laboratories further validated the method.

Herpesvirus infections cause considerable morbidity and mortality through lifelong recurrent cycles of lytic and latent infection in several tissues, including the human nervous system. Acyclovir (ACV) and its prodrug, the current antivirals of choice for herpes simplex virus (HSV) and, to some extent, varicella zoster virus (VZV) infections are nucleoside analogues that inhibit viral DNA replication. Rising viral resistance and the need for more effective second-line drugs have motivated searches for additional antiviral agents, particularly non-nucleoside based agents. We evaluated the antiviral activity of five compounds with predicted lysosomotropic activity using conventional and human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived neuronal (iPSC-neurons) cultures. Their potency and toxicity were compared with ACV and the lysosomotropic agents chloroquine and bafilomycin A1. Out of five compounds tested, micromolar concentrations of 30N12, 16F19, and 4F17 showed antiviral activity comparable to ACV (50μM) during lytic herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infections, reduced viral DNA copy number, and reduced selected HSV-1 buy zovirax protein levels. These compounds also inhibited the reactivation of 'quiescent' HSV-1 infection established in iPSC-neurons, but did not inhibit viral entry into host cells. The same compounds had greater potency than ACV against lytic VZV infection; they also inhibited replication of human cytomegalovirus. The anti-herpetic effects of these non-nucleoside agents merit further evaluation in vivo.

EBV is an oncogenic herpesvirus associated with a number of human malignancies. The consistent presence of the EBV genome in certain tumors offers the potential for novel EBV-targeted therapies. EBV can infect cells in either a latent or lytic form. Here we demonstrate that a variety of chemotherapeutic agents, including cis-platinum, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), and taxol, induce the switch from the latent to lytic form of EBV infection in tumor cells. This effect requires the protein kinase C delta, phosphatidylinositol 3'-kinase buy zovirax , and p38 stress mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathways but not caspase 3 activation. Because the lytic but not latent form of EBV infection converts the cytotoxic prodrug, ganciclovir (GCV), into its active form, we examined whether the combination of GCV and chemotherapy is more effective than chemotherapy alone for killing EBV-positive tumor cells. GCV significantly enhanced the ability of 5-FU and cis-platinum to kill EBV-positive, but not EBV-negative, gastric carcinoma cells in vitro. Most importantly, the combination of GCV and 5-FU (or GCV and cis-platinum) was much more effective in the treatment of EBV-positive nasopharyngeal carcinomas passaged in nude mice than either agent alone. These data suggest that GCV enhances the efficacy of conventional chemotherapy for the treatment of EBV-positive epithelial cell tumors.

Optimal acyclovir dosing under continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) in neonates is unknown. We monitored serum acyclovir levels and herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) DNA levels in a neonate with disseminated HSV-1 infection and renal failure undergoing CRRT. A full-term, 5-day-old female presented with a 2-day history of lethargy and fever. She developed fulminant hepatitis and was diagnosed with HSV-1 infection by real-time polymerase chain reaction. Acyclovir was initiated at 60 mg/kg/day, which was lowered to 20 mg/kg/day because of development of renal failure. She was placed on continuous hemodialysis. Acyclovir dosing was adjusted according to serum acyclovir levels, and HSV-1 viral load was sequentially monitored. Semiquantification of serum HSV-1 levels was performed by real-time polymerase chain reaction. Acyclovir levels were measured by using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Acyclovir was administered at 20 mg/kg intravenously over 1 hour; peak concentration was 18.9 μg/mL. The half-life of acyclovir was estimated to be 2 to 3 h. Viral load remained high during dosing every 24 hours, with a decline of 0.17 log copies/24 hours. Acyclovir dosing was changed to 20 mg/kg/dose every 8 hours, with an average viral load decline of 0.44 log copies/24 hours. Despite the guideline recommendation of 24-hour redosing, acyclovir was dialyzed at a rate that resulted in suboptimal treatment. Individual therapeutic drug monitoring for acyclovir and dosing adjustment may be required buy zovirax to optimize therapy for patients undergoing CRRT.

Both children presented with focal epileptic seizures, corresponding to cortical/subcortical as well as white matter lesions. The first showed a typical vesicular skin rash. She was easily diagnosed and made a rapid recovery during acyclovir and steroid treatment. In the second girl, a preceding measles-mumps-rubella virus vaccination and the absence of skin vesicles were misleading with respect to the diagnosis, which was finally proven by IgG seroconversion and intrathecal synthesis of IgG antibodies to VZV. She developed left buy zovirax parieto-occipital tissue necrosis and recovered only transiently during initial acyclovir/steroid treatment. Eight weeks after onset, progressive white matter demyelination and the occurrence of erythema nodosum in the lower limbs necessitated a second 4-month course of oral steroids. The VZV PCR from cerebrospinal fluid was negative in both children.

We describe a 14-month-old patient with atypical presentation of herpes simplex encephalitis. She initially presented with fever, lethargy, seizures, and large hemorrhages in the right parietal lobe, and clinical findings suggestive of a hypercoagulable state. The etiology of coagulation abnormality was not identified, although it was suggested as a possible causative factor in severe bleeding along with acute neuronal lysis as a result of infection. Although large intracerebral hemorrhages are occasionally described with systemic herpes infection, this presentation is unusual beyond the infant buy zovirax period.

Among 100 transplants, 15 subjects received prophylaxis due to poly- or monoclonal antibody induction and/or negative recipient serology using a mean valgancyclovir dose of 485 +/- 276 mg/d for an average duration of 129 days. After completion of the prophylaxis four patients (26.6%) required buy zovirax preemptive therapy for asymptomatic virus reactivation; the mean dose of drug in these patients had been 450 +/- 275.56 mg, with a treatment time that was significantly shorter than those not suffering reactivation (91.75 vs 143.45 days). In addition, preemptive therapy was given for virus reactivation in seven patients, for illness with mild viral syndrome in two, with moderate illness and positive pretransplantation serology in one. The average treatment time was 79 days and the mean dose was 375 mg.

A 5-year-old girl with a kidney transplant developed post-transplant Epstein-Barr virus-induced lymphoproliferative disease. She was treated with acyclovir, alpha-interferon, and gamma globulin. A transplant nephrectomy was performed on day 4 due to acute rejection and she was started on hemodialysis. The acyclovir dose was decreased at this time. However, 6 days following the start of acyclovir she developed progressively worsening neurological symptoms resulting in a coma on day 8. Fourteen days after acyclovir was begun pre- and post- Dose Of Kemadrin dose serum concentrations were 7.02 microM and 182.5 microM, respectively. Acyclovir was then discontinued and 2 days later the child's neurological status began to improve. We conclude that acyclovir in children with end-stage renal failure may lead to severe and reversible neurotoxicity, despite acyclovir dosage adjustment based on renal impairment.

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) DNA polymerase (Pol) mutations can confer resistance to all currently available antiherpetic drugs. However, discrimination between mutations responsible for drug resistance and those that are part of viral polymorphism can be difficult with current methodologies. A new system is reported for rapid generation of recombinant HSV type 1 (HSV-1) DNA Pol mutants based on transfection of a set of overlapping viral cosmids and plasmids. With this approach, twenty HSV-1 recombinants with single or dual mutations within the DNA pol gene were successfully Oxytrol Buy Online generated and subsequently evaluated for their susceptibilities to acyclovir (ACV), foscarnet (FOS), cidofovir (CDV), and adefovir (ADV). Mutations within DNA Pol conserved regions II (A719T and S724N), VI (L778M, D780N, and L782I), and I (F891C) were shown to induce cross-resistance to ACV, FOS, and ADV, with two of these mutations (S724N and L778M) also conferring significant reduction in CDV susceptibility. Mutant F891C was associated with the highest levels of resistance towards ACV and FOS and was strongly impaired in its replication capacity. One mutation (D907V) lying outside of the conserved regions was also associated with this ACV-, FOS-, and ADV-resistant phenotype. Some mutations (K522E and Y577H) within the delta-region C were lethal, whereas others (P561S and V573M) induced no resistance to any of the drugs tested. Recombinants harboring mutations within conserved regions V (N961K) and VII (Y941H) were resistant to ACV but susceptible to FOS. Finally, mutations within conserved region III were associated with various susceptibility profiles. This new system allows a rapid and accurate evaluation of the functional role of various DNA Pol mutations, which should translate into improved management of drug-resistant HSV infections.

To determine the factors associated with an increased risk of developing varicella-zoster virus (VZV) pneumonia during pregnancy, a case-control analysis was done in which 18 pregnant women with VZV pneumonia were compared with 72 matched control subjects. VZV infection was identified clinically, and VZV pneumonia was diagnosed by dyspnea and findings on chest radiographs. Of 347 pregnant women with VZV infection, 18 (5.2%) had pneumonia treated with acyclovir, and none died. Mean gestational age at rash onset was 25.8 Cymbalta Generic Availability plus minus 8.8 weeks for patients with pneumonia and 17.7 +/- 10.3 weeks for control subjects, which was not significant in the multivariable model. Women with VZV pneumonia were significantly more likely to be current smokers (odds ratio [OR], 5.1; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.6-16.7) and to have > or = 100 skin lesions (OR, 15.9; 95% CI, 1.9-130.2). Pregnant women with VZV infection may be more likely to develop varicella pneumonia if they are smokers or manifest > or = 100 skin lesions.

Topical aciclovir cream (ACV, Zovirax Cream) containing 40% propylene glycol (PG), the optimum found for skin penetration, is clinically effective in the treatment of recurrent herpes labialis. One hundred and thirty-nine ACV generic creams were analysed and 80% of these contained less than 20% PG. From this, we hypothesised that these generics might be bioinequivalent to the innovator cream. A pilot in vitro skin permeation study compared the innovator cream with two generics containing about 15% PG. Next, 10 generics containing 0-15% PG were tested in an independent laboratory. Finally, a PG dose-ranging study was conducted in Zovirax cream base. In all studies, human skin was used and ACV analysed by LC-MS-MS. In the pilot study, the innovator cream delivered 7.5-fold more ACV than the two generics. Superiority was confirmed in the second study against all 10 ACV generic creams. By grouping the creams according to PG content, a relationship to ACV skin permeation was suggested. The PG dose effect Combivir Drug Interactions was confirmed in the third study. These studies suggest that not all marketed ACV creams are bioequivalent to the clinically proven innovator. Given the magnitude of the differences seen, there is concern over therapeutic inequivalence of generic ACV creams to the innovator cream.

The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate new collagen gastroretentive dosage forms (GRDFs) which expand in the stomach after contact with gastric fluids. The GRDFs should remain in the stomach for a prolonged period of time due to their size. The dosage forms were prepared from collagen sponges. The sponges were manufactured by freeze-drying a riboflavin-containing collagen solution. A computer controlled material supply was constructed to transport precompressed collagen into a tablet machine. A second type of tablet was manufactured by combining compressed collagen sponges with hydrophilic matrix layers of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose. Matrix layers containing captopril or aciclovir were developed. In vitro experiments were performed with both types of dosage forms. The collagen tablets expand within a few minutes after contact with artificial gastric juice and form a drug delivery system with a size of 8 mm x 18 mm x 60 mm. Riboflavin is released over 16 h. If two layer tablets are used, the release of aciclovir or captopril can be controlled by the composition of the sustained release layer.

Delayed elimination of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV)-infected cells by the host immune system may contribute to viral dissemination and pathogenesis of HCMV infection. The mRNA expression dynamics of HCMV-encoded immune evasion genes US3, US6, and US11 expressed after active HCMV infection were analyzed in blood samples of lung transplant recipients by means of quantitative nucleic acid sequence-based amplification. The results were compared with the expression dynamics of IE1 mRNA and pp67 late mRNA, levels of pp65 antigenemia, and antiviral treatment. During acute infection, high levels of US3 and US6 RNA were detected before antigenemia, which were detected simultaneously with IE1 RNA. US11 RNA was detected simultaneously with antigenemia but before late pp67 RNA. These data suggest an active role of viral immune evasion during HCMV infection in vivo. Interestingly, immune evasion RNA remained detectable after clinical recovery, often independently of IE1 RNA expression, indicating persistent viral activity, which may have implications for long-term control of HCMV.
