Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) causes severe morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. Treatment of HCMV infections with conventional antiviral drugs like ganciclovir and cidofovir has major drawbacks (i.e. serious side effects). Therefore, combination therapies using drugs with different antiviral mechanisms should be envisaged. Potential synergy between lactoferrin (LF), an antibacterial, antimycotic and antiviral protein, and the antiviral drugs acyclovir, ganciclovir, foscarnet and cidofovir was investigated, using an in vitro test system with the recombinant RC256 HCMV strain.

Leishmaniasis is a major health problem in some endemic areas and yet, no vaccine is available against any form of the disease. Historically, leishmanization (LZ) which is an inoculation of individual with live Leishmania, is the most effective control measure at least against cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL). Due to various reasons, LZ is not used today. Several live attenuated Leishmania have been developed but their use is limited. Previously, we developed a transgenic strain of L. major that harbors two suicide genes tk and cd genes (lmtkcd+/+) for use as a challenge strain in vaccine studies. These genes render the parasite susceptible to Ganciclovir (GCV) and 5-flurocytosine (5-FC). The dual drug sensitive strain of L. major was developed using gene targeting technology using a modified Herpes Simplex Virus thymidine kinase gene (hsv-tk) sensitive to Ganciclovir antibiotic and Saccharomyces cerevisae cytosine deaminase gene (cd sensitive to 5-flurocytosine) that were stably introduced into L. major chromosome. BALB/c mice inoculated with lmtkcd+/+ developed lesions which upon treatment with GCV and 5-FC completely healed. In the current study, the transgenic lmtkcd+/+strain was assessed as a live vaccine model to determine the time necessary to develop a protective immune response. C57BL/6 mice were inoculated with the transgenic lmtkcd+/+strain, and treated at the time of inoculation (day 0) or at day 8 after inoculation. Immunized animals were challenged with wild-type L. major, and complete protection was induced in mice that were treated at day 8. The results show that in contrast to leishmanization, in group of mice inoculated with a dual sensitive L. major development and persistence of lesion is not necessary to induce Th1 response and protection.

Leishmania parasites cause important human morbidity and mortality. Essential Leishmania genes escape genetic assessment by loss-of-function analyses due to lethal null mutant phenotypes, even though these genes and their products are biologically most significant and represent validated drug targets. Here we overcome this limitation using a facilitated null mutant approach applied for the functional genetic analysis of the MAP kinase LmaMPK4. This system relies on the episomal expression of the target gene from vector pXNG that expresses the Herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene thus rendering transgenic parasites susceptible for negative selection using the antiviral drug ganciclovir. Using this system we establish the genetic proof of LmaMPK4 as essential kinase in promastigotes. LmaMPK4 structure/function analysis by plasmid shuffle allowed us to identify regulatory kinase sequence elements relevant for chemotherapeutic intervention. A partial null mutant, expressing an MPK4 derivative with altered ATP-binding properties, showed defects in metacyclogenesis, establishing a first link of MPK4 function to parasite differentiation. The approaches presented here are broadly applicable to any essential gene in Leishmania thus overcoming major bottlenecks for their functional genetic analysis and their exploitation for structure-informed drug development.

One hundred forty-nine consecutive patients (131 men and 18 women aged 48+/-13 years) were randomized to receive either ganciclovir or placebo during the initial 28 days after heart transplantation. Immunosuppression consisted of muromonab-CD3 (OKT-3) prophylaxis and maintenance with cyclosporine, prednisone, and azathioprine. Mean follow-up time was 4.7+/-1.3 years. In a post hoc analysis of this trial designed to assess efficacy of ganciclovir for prevention of CMV disease, we compared the actuarial incidence of TxCAD, defined by annual angiography as the presence of any stenosis. Because calcium blockers have been shown to prevent TxCAD, we analyzed the results by stratifying patients according to use of calcium blockers. TxCAD could not be evaluated in 28 patients because of early death or limited follow-up. Among the evaluable patients, actuarial incidence of TxCAD at follow-up (mean, 4.7 years) in ganciclovir-treated patients (n=62) compared with placebo (n=59) was 43+/-8% versus 60+/-10% (P<0.1). By Cox multivariate analysis, independent predictors of TxCAD were donor age >40 years (relative risk, 2.7; CI, 1.3 to 5.5; P<0.01) and no ganciclovir (relative risk, 2.1; CI, 1.1 to 5.3; P=0.04). Stratification on the basis of calcium blocker use revealed differences in TxCAD incidence when ganciclovir and placebo were compared: no calcium blockers (n=53), 32+/-11% (n=28) for ganciclovir versus 62+/-16% (n=25) for placebo (P<0.03); calcium blockers (n=68), 50+/-14% (n=33) for ganciclovir versus 45+/-12% (n=35) for placebo (P=NS).

Valganciclovir has been reported to improve physical and cognitive symptoms in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) with elevated human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) IgG antibody titers. This study investigated whether antibody titers against HHV-6 and EBV were associated with clinical response to valganciclovir in a subset of CFS patients. An uncontrolled, unblinded retrospective chart review was performed on 61 CFS patients treated with 900 mg valganciclovir daily (55 of whom took an induction dose of 1,800 mg daily for the first 3 weeks). Antibody titers were considered high if HHV-6 IgG ≥ 1:320, EBV viral capsid antigen (VCA) IgG ≥ 1:640, and EBV early antigen (EA) IgG ≥ 1:160. Patients self-rated physical and cognitive functioning as a percentage of their functioning prior to illness. Patients were categorized as responders if they experienced at least 30% improvement in physical and/or cognitive functioning. Thirty-two patients (52%) were categorized as responders. Among these, 19 patients (59%) responded physically and 26 patients (81%) responded cognitively. Baseline antibody titers showed no significant association with response. After treatment, the average change in physical and cognitive functioning levels for all patients was +19% and +23%, respectively (P < 0.0001). Longer treatment was associated with improved response (P = 0.0002). No significant difference was found between responders and non-responders among other variables analyzed. Valganciclovir treatment, independent of the baseline antibody titers, was associated with self-rated improvement in physical and cognitive functioning for CFS patients who had positive HHV-6 and/or EBV serologies. Longer valganciclovir treatment correlated with an improved response.

To develop an animal model of Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) infection uniquely suited to evaluate longitudinal patterns of viral gene expression, cell tropism, and immune responses, we injected NOD/SCID mice intravenously with purified virus and measured latent and lytic viral transcripts in distal organs over the subsequent 4 months. We observed sequential escalation of first latent and then lytic KSHV gene expression coupled with electron micrographic evidence of virion production within the murine spleen. Using novel technology that integrates flow cytometry with immunofluorescence microscopy, we found that the virus establishes infection in murine B cells, macrophages, NK cells, and, to a lesser extent, dendritic cells. To investigate the potential for human KSHV-specific immune responses within this immunocompromised host, we implanted NOD/SCID mice with functional human hematopoietic tissue grafts (NOD/SCID-hu mice) and observed that a subset of animals produced human KSHV-specific antibodies. Furthermore, treatment of these chimeric mice with ganciclovir at the time of inoculation led to prolonged but reversible suppression of KSHV DNA and RNA levels, suggesting that KSHV can establish latent infection in vivo despite ongoing suppression of lytic replication.

Patients were treated for a median of 207 days (range, 15-376). Four of 6 patients had no detectable CMV DNAemia within 6 weeks of starting MBV therapy. One patient, who had an initial viral load of 1.8 million copies/mL, developed MBV resistance mutations. One patient, who had low serum levels of MBV, had persistent CMV DNAemia and viruria without developing genotypic or phenotypic resistance to MBV. One patient cleared CMV DNAemia, but died of pneumonia and multiorgan failure. No significant adverse effects attributable to MBV were observed.

Hydrophilic drugs are poorly absorbed when applied topically, due to low partitioning through the lipid matrix of the stratum corneum. Cutaneous blood flow rapidly clears the absorbed drug, which may result in low tissue levels. This is of importance for topically applied drugs whose site of action is within the epidermis or dermis. Dermal drug levels can be measured using cutaneous microdialysis, which is a means of continuously sampling substances from the dermal extracellular fluid.

Prolonged therapy with ganciclovir (GCV) can result in the development of GCV-resistant strains due to mutations in the viral phosphotransferase (UL97 gene) and/or in the viral DNA polymerase (UL54 gene).

This review included data from 98 trials that randomised a total of 5211 participants. Compared to idoxuridine, the topical application of vidarabine, trifluridine, or acyclovir resulted in a significantly greater proportion of participants healing within one week of treatment. Among these latter three antiviral agents, no treatment emerged as significantly better for the therapy of dendritic epithelial keratitis. Insufficient placebo-controlled studies were available to assess debridement and other physical or physicochemical methods of treatment. Interferon monotherapy had a slight beneficial effect on dendritic epithelial keratitis but was not better than other antiviral agents. Interferon was very effective when combined with another antiviral agent such as trifluridine.

In continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients, acyclovir-induced neurotoxicity is reported to be associated with high serum drug levels even when following the recommended reduced doses for this renal failure population. In view of the high oral bioavailability of valaciclovir (the L-valyl ester of acyclovir) the risk of neurotoxicity becomes more prominent. The present study was conducted in 12 CAPD patients who were administered a single oral dose of 500 mg valaciclovir. Acyclovir was analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography. Relative pharmacokinetic parameters were estimated based on acyclovir concentrations at 8, 12 and 24 h post-dose. High inter-patient variations were observed with acyclovir apparent total clearance 7.238 +/- 4 l/h and half-life (T1/2) 22.27 +/- 16.82 h. However, dosage simulations confirmed supratherapeutic acyclovir concentrations for all participants when following the recommended dose of 1,000 mg valaciclovir/24 h for varicella zoster infections.

The valaciclovir was used as the model drug, the bovine serum albumin nanoparticles (BSA-NP) were prepared by desolvation process. Glycyrrhizin (GL) was oxidized by sodium periodate to be conjugated to surface reactive amino groups (SRAG) of the VACV-BSA-NP. Gel filtration method combined with HPLC method verified that GL was covalent coupling to the surface of VACV-BSA-NP with mean 9 GL residues per albumin molecule. The mean diameter of the VACV-BSA-NP-GL was 268 +/- 23 nm, the drug loading was 1.35%, and embedding ratio was 68.76%. The characteristics of release in vitro were in accord with two-phase kinetics. The uptake amount of VACV-BSA-NP-GL by primary cultured rat hepatocytes in vitro was higher, compared to the control-VACV-BSA-NP. 69.89% and 64.82% of the VACV were concentrated in liver at 15 min after i.v. VACV-BSA-NP-GL and VACV-BSA-NP, respectively. There is a significant difference between surface-modified group and control group (P<0.10). VACV-BSA-NP-GL was successfully prepared, which is considered to be a novel drug delivery system for targeting to hepatocytes.

The translation initiation factor, eIF4E, is commonly overexpressed in solid tumors. This elevation allows for efficient translation of mRNA that are normally repressed by their 5' untranslated region, many of which encode growth-promoting proteins. This property was exploited to modulate the synthesis of HTK at the translational level to selectively kill cancer cells. Various breast cancer cell lines can efficiently synthesize HTK from the translationally regulated mRNA, whereas normal cells cannot. Accordingly, only cancer cells were killed at low concentrations of ganciclovir. By altering the expression of eIF4E, it was possible to modulate the sensitivity of various cell lines to ganciclovir.

A series of 2-amino-9-(1,3-dihydroxy-2-propoxymethyl)-6-fluoropurine mono- and diesters, 6a-h, were synthesized as potential prodrugs of ganciclovir and evaluated for their oral ganciclovir bioavailability in rats. Treatment of 2-amino-6-chloro-9-(1, 3-dihydroxy-2-propoxymethyl)purine (4) with Me3N in DMF/THF (1/4) followed by the reaction of the resulting trimethylammonium chloride salt 5 with KF in DMF gave 2-amino-9-(1, 3-dihydroxy-2-propoxymethyl)-6-fluoropurine (2) in 83% yield. Esterification of 2 with an appropriate acid anhydride (Ac2O, (EtCO)2O, (n-PrCO)2O, or (i-PrCO)2O) (6 equiv for 6a-d or 1 equiv for 6e-h) in DMF in the presence of a catalytic amount of DMAP produced the diesters 6a-d in 92-98% yields and the monoesters 6e-h in 37-44% yields. Of the prodrugs tested in rats, the monoisobutyrate 6h achieved the highest ganciclovir bioavailability (45%) that is 15-fold higher than that from ganciclovir (3%), followed in order by the diisobutyrate 6d (42%), the diacetate 6a (41%), the monobutyrate 6g (41%), the monopropionate 6f (39%), the dipropionate 6b (35%), the dibutyrate 6c (35%), and the monoacetate 6e (29%). The prodrugs 6e-h were found to be quite stable at buy zovirax online pH 6.0 (t1/2 = >29 days), 7.4 (t1/2 = >7 days), and 8.0 (t1/2 = >2 days) but had relatively short half-lives at pH 1.2 (t1/2 = 60-83 min).

Surface free energy was determined for model substances pentoxyfilline, acyclovir, lactose and binding agents (that were used in the granulation process) hydroxypropilmethyl cellulose (HPMC) and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) were determined by contact angle measurements. The methods of Wu, Good-van Oss and Della Volpe were used for solid-surface free-energy calculation. Spreading coefficients (S) were calculated and correlated with granulate properties. Granulates consisted of model drug and binding agent, and were produced in fluid bed granulator Glatt powder coater granulator GPCG1 by means of spraying the colloidal solution of binder on the model substance. Granules contained either 5% or 10% binder. Inverse granules, however, were also produced by spraying the model drug (i.e. pentoxyfilline and lactose) on the binding agent (HPMC, PVP). Particle size distribution, friability, true density, bulk density and tapped density of the granulates were determined. Although many different parameters influence the granule properties, it has been found that the interactions between the drug and the binder play a very important role. Spreading coefficients were found to be in good correlation with the friability of granulates. Positive spreading coefficient values of the binder over the model substance correlate well with the low friability of the granules containing lower amount of binder, i.e. 5%. In the group of the same binder, the spreading coefficient values decrease from pentoxyfilline over lactose to acyclovir. Friability results show that, for the system under consideration, PVP offers certain advantages over the grade of HPMC employed. The increase of the binder amount from 5 to 10% resulted in more friable granulates. Lower work of cohesion of the binder (PVP and HPMC) than the work of adhesion between binder and the model substances is considered responsible for the higher friability of the granules. The inverse granulation process, where the suspension of the model substance was sprayed over the solid binder particles, proved more efficient with HPMC than with PVP. According to the spreading coefficient results, the binder should spread over buy zovirax online the drug. However, the kinetics of wetting appears to play an important role in the granulation process. According to these results, the conclusion was made that water wets HPMC much faster than PVP.

Intraocular drug administration is an alternative therapy for CMV retinitis that avoids some of the disadvantages associated with systemic treatment. Intravitreal ganciclovir 200- buy zovirax online 2000 micrograms once weekly has been studied in a number of nonrandomized studies. Although initially effective, intravitreal ganciclovir is associated with a significant relapse rate and development of contralateral CMV retinitis. Intraocular ganciclovir implants offer the advantage of less frequent interventions and constant drug concentrations in the vitreous. Time to progression is significantly longer in patients receiving implants versus intravenous therapy; however, there is a higher incidence of contralateral eye retinitis and extraocular CMV disease with the implants. Currently, the intraocular implant is being studied in combination with oral ganciclovir to decrease the incidence of systemic CMV disease. Foscarnet and cidofovir have also been administered intravitreally for CMV retinitis. Cidofovir may offer the advantage of a long intracellular half-life, which would allow infrequent dosing; however, further study is needed to determine a safe and effective intraocular dosage.

To determine risk factors, frequency, time patterns, and outcome of ganciclovir-related neutropenia in allogeneic marrow transplant recipients, 278 consecutive patients receiving ganciclovir from engraftment until day 100 were studied. In this cohort, 159 patients (57%) had absolute neutrophil counts (ANC) less than 1,500/microL, 112 (41%) had an ANC less than 1,000/microL, 87 (31%) less than 750/microL, and 56 (21%) less than 500/microL for at least 2 consecutive days. Statistically significant risk factors for neutropenia in a Cox model were low marrow cellularity between day 21 and 28 (relative risk [RR] 2.4, P = .0002), hyperbilirubinemia > or =6 mg/dL during the first 20 days (RR 2.5, P = .0001), and elevation of serum creatinine > or =2 mg/dL after day 21 after transplant (RR 2.1, P = .001). Restriction to factors present at engraftment resulted in a similar model with low marrow cellularity, hyperbilirubinemia > or =6 mg/dL, and elevated serum creatinine as significant risk factors. Patients with no risk factor had an incidence of neutropenia of 21%, an incidence of 31% for one risk factor, and of 57% for two or more risk factors (RR 3.8, P = .001). Neutropenia was a negative predictor of overall (RR 2.0, P = .0001) and event-free survival (RR 2.1, P < .0001), and a predictor of relapse (RR buy zovirax online 1.7, P = .03) and nonrelapse mortality (RR 2.1, P = .003). Thus, early liver dysfunction, elevated serum creatinine, and low marrow cellularity are risk factors for ganciclovir-related neutropenia. Neutropenia in ganciclovir recipients after marrow transplantation is an independent risk factor for mortality.

For most viruses, there is a need for antimicrobials that target unique viral molecular properties. Acyclovir (ACV) is one such drug. It is activated into a human herpesvirus (HHV) DNA polymerase inhibitor exclusively by HHV kinases and, thus, does not suppress other viruses. Here, we show that ACV suppresses HIV-1 in HHV-coinfected human tissues, but not in HHV-free tissue or cell cultures. However, addition of HHV-6-infected cells renders these cultures sensitive to anti-HIV ACV activity. We hypothesized that such HIV suppression requires ACV phosphorylation by HHV kinases. Indeed, an ACV monophosphorylated prodrug bypasses the HHV requirement for HIV suppression Dosage Augmentin 875 . Furthermore, phosphorylated ACV directly inhibits HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT), terminating DNA chain elongation, and can trap RT at the termination site. These data suggest that ACV anti-HIV-1 activity may contribute to the response of HIV/HHV-coinfected patients to ACV treatment and could guide strategies for the development of new HIV-1 RT inhibitors.

We report the case of an adult patient with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) presenting with acute dyspnoea and cutaneous disseminated lesions suggestive of an atypical varicella. The chest radiograph and the computed tomography (CT)-scan revealed a miliary pneumonia. On a previous serum sample varicella-zoster (VZV)-specific serum immunoglobulin (Ig)G titre was 1/200. A high dose acyclovir treatment was effective, but recurrences occurred twice when the treatment was discontinued. During the first recurrence the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) detected the presence of VZV in the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) sample. These findings confirmed the diagnosis of secondary varicella with pulmonary involvement. Secondary varicella pneumonia has not been reported in a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected adult until now. The use of PCR on a BAL sample was very useful in this case because Mobic 5mg Reviews viral culture remained negative. Recurrences of the varicella pneumonia suggested that a maintenance treatment was required in this deeply immunocompromised patient.

The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of pharmaceutically relevant drug transporters in frog intestine which has been proposed as model for intestinal permeability screening assays of passively absorbed drugs in humans [Trapani, G., Franco, M., Trapani, A., Lopedota, A., Latrofa, A., Gallucci, E., Micelli, S., Liso, G., 2004. Frog intestinal sac: a new in vitro method for the assessment of intestinal permeability. J. Pharm. Sci. 93, 2909-2919]. The expression of transporters in frog intestine was supported by the following observations: (i) the involvement of purine nucleobase transport system was deduced by inhibition of acyclovir transport in the presence of adenine; (ii) baclofen or l-dopa transport was inhibited by the digitalis steroid ouabain and it may be related to the Na(+) electrochemical potential difference, presumably involving amino acid transporters Cymbalta Drugs ; (iii) the presence of proton-dependent peptide transporters was argued evaluating the effect of the pH change (from pH 5.9 to pH 7.4) on the transport of glutathione; (iv) the possible expression in the frog intestine of an efflux system distinct from P-glycoprotein (Pgp) in the benzylpenicillin transport was deduced using a glucose enriched frog Ringer with or without the known Pgp inhibitor verapamil; (v) the contribution of Pgp-mediated efflux system in determining the frog intestinal absorption of drugs was supported by the specific inhibition of cimetidine or nadolol transport in the presence of verapamil. These results indicate that pharmaceutically relevant drug transporters should be also expressed in frog intestine. In this work, an attempt was also made to compare the measured P(app) values in the frog intestinal model for the aforementioned series of actively/effluxed transported drugs in humans to the corresponding literature values for the fraction absorbed. The P(app) values used in these comparisons were obtained at high concentrations of drugs at which probably saturation of the carrier occurs. Interestingly, it was found that drugs that are completely absorbed had P(app) values >3 x 10(-6)cm/s, while drugs absorbed <90% had P(app) values lower than 1 x 10(-6)cm/s. In these cases, indeed, a borderline region characterized by the apparent permeability coefficient P(app) value between 1 x 10(-6) and 3 x 10(-6)cm/s should be considered for which the prediction of the absorbed fraction after oral administration in humans become more uncertain by the frog intestinal sac system.

This case is most pertinent to Family Practice, Otolaryngology and Neurology. It highlights the possible co-existence of RHS with cervical VZV reactivation and encourages physicians to monitor for this complication even before geniculate ganglion reactivation occurs. RHS is a rare disease that can present with vague symptoms. Asacol Generic Alternatives A high index of suspicion and close follow up are essential. Early intervention with antivirals and corticosteroids has shown significantly improved outcomes in these patients.

A case/non-case analysis was conducted using ADR reports compiled in the nationwide spontaneous-reporting database through September 2010. All reported events included in the analysis were evaluated and coded by drug safety experts; causality assessments were performed according to the algorithm of Naranjo et al. The association between an adverse reaction and antiviral use was assessed by estimating the reporting odds ratio (ROR), with 95% confidence interval (CI), as a measure of disproportionality.

A 64-year-old man with a 2-week history of fatigue and fever presented to the medical admissions unit. He had a background of lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma and had recently completed a course of fludarabine-based chemotherapy. CT of the abdomen demonstrated an increase in spleen size and it was thought that his fevers were most likely due to disease recurrence or high-grade transformation. A bone marrow trephine was organised, which showed no evidence of lymphoma and positron emission tomography-CT demonstrated an area of increased avidity at the gastro-oesophageal junction. An oesophagogastroduodenoscopy was recommended, which revealed ulceration within the oesophagus and stomach. Biopsy of the lesions and immunohistochemistry confirmed a diagnosis of cytomegalovirus oesophagitis. He was treated with intravenous ganciclovir followed by oral valganciclovir for a total of 3 weeks. His fever resolved and he was discharged home approximately 8 weeks after he first presented.
