The novel non-synonymous mutations found in this study enrich the knowledge about the genetic alterations of TK and DNA pol genes in ACV-resistant clinical HSV strains. Together with data from the literature, the findings justify the generation of a HSV database that contains resistance mutations associated with ACV resistance phenotype.

We have investigated the effects of thymidine kinase-mediated gene therapy in a malignant rat BT4C glioma by using 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in vivo. Ganciclovir has been successfully used in thymidine kinase gene therapy as treatment for various experimental malignancies. The cell damaging effect seems to be mediated by apoptosis, optimally leading to eradication of tumor tissue. In this study, we show that ganciclovir treatment of tumors transfected with the herpes simplex thymidine kinase gene causes profound changes in water, metabolites, and macromolecules observable by diffusion spectroscopy. During treatment, a 50% reduction from 0.14 +/- 0.01 x 10(-9) m2/s in the apparent diffusion coefficient of choline-containing compounds can be observed, concomitant with a 219% increase in the apparent diffusion coefficient of the rapidly diffusing water component. These changes are associated with an increase in the relative fraction of this water component from 87 to 94%. The apparent diffusion coefficients of the slowly diffusing water component and macromolecules remain unaltered. The results imply a reduction in cell size and number, a significant increase in intracellular viscosity, and a possible reduction in the hydrodynamic radii of macromolecular components, which are ascribed as biophysical signatures for apoptotic cell death.

A simple high-performance liquid chromatographic method using fluorescence detection was developed for the determination of acyclovir in human plasma. The method entailed direct injection of the plasma sample after deproteination. It is both specific and sensitive with a detection limit of 30 ng/ml at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3:1, and is thus suitable for use in pharmacokinetic studies of acyclovir. The method had a mean absolute recovery of 96%, while the within-day and between-day coefficients of variation and percentages error were all less than 8%. The calibration curve was linear over a concentration range of 62.5-4000 ng/ml.

The plaques or foci of certain viruses due to their small size have to be counted microscopically, e.g., human cytomegalovirus (HCMV). The focus luminescence assay (FLA) described below generates macroscopic images as a result of the magnification due to scattered emitted light, and provides a hard copy using autoradiography or video imaging. Foci are detected according to an immunohistochemical protocol with horseradish peroxidase or alkaline phosphatase antibody conjugates which convert substrate into a luminescent product. Detection of varicella zoster virus (VZV) foci developed with a specific substrate-enhancer combination was so sensitive that 20-times lower primary antibody concentrations were effective than those required for conventional immunohistochemical staining. This method for HCMV and VZV may allow quantitative infectivity and focus reduction assays for viruses which produce little or no CPE.

The effect of protease inhibitors (PIs) on the outcome of AIDS-associated cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of PIs on the recurrence of CMV disease and long-term survival in a large cohort of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients with CMV colitis. We reviewed the medical records of 252 AIDS patients who were diagnosed with CMV colitis by colonoscopy between January 1992 and January 1997 at Bellevue Hospital (New York, NY, U.S.A.). Follow-up data were obtained from chart review and direct telephone contact. A complete response to ganciclovir and/or foscarnet therapy was seen in 87.0% of the patients. Recurrence of CMV colitis occurred in 53.1% of patients and was significantly less common in those who received maintenance therapy (36.1% vs. 56.7%; p = 0.03) and in those who were treated with PIs (22.8% vs. 71.9%; p < 0.001). During follow-up. 69.3% of patients died. Multivariate analysis using Cox regression showed that mortality was increased in patients with recurrent CMV colitis (relative risk [RR] of death, 1.7: 95% CI, 1.1-2.6; p = 0.02) and comorbid disease (RR, 1.5: 95% CI, 1.1-2.2; p = 0.02), and decreased in those who were treated with PIs (RR, 0.42; 95% CI, 0.3-0.7; p = 0.001). The median survival was 71 weeks and was significantly longer in patients who were treated with PIs than in those who did not receive these potent anti-retroviral medications (99 vs. 51 weeks; p < 0.001). PIs significantly improve the outcome of AIDS-associated CMV colitis.

9-Carboxymethoxymethylguanine (CMMG), the main metabolite of aciclovir (ACV), is a putative neurotoxin. Measurement of CMMG in body fluids may aid patient management. We describe the development, validation and application of a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for the simultaneous determination of ACV and CMMG in human serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Recovery was between 94% and 100% at all concentrations both from serum (range 0-20 mg/L) and CSF (0-5 mg/L). The intra-assay precision (coefficient of variation (CV)) was <2% and the inter-assay precision (CV) was <5%. The limits of detection and quantification were 0.1 and 0.25 mg/L, respectively, in both body fluids. Significant interference from endogenous material or from drugs in clinical samples was not seen. CMMG was detected in most of the 55 clinical samples containing ACV, but little correlation was found between the levels of the drug and its metabolite.

Lung cancer is a group of diseases that are difficult to cure and new treatment modalities, like gene therapy are actively tested to find alternatives for currently used strategies. Herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase/ganciclovir (HSV-TK/GCV) method is one of the most frequently utilized forms of gene therapy and it has been tested on lung cancer, but no systematic study with comparison of different lung cancer types has been published. In this study, we examined in vitro and in vivo how good targets non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines representing adenocarcinoma, squamous cell lung cancer and large cell lung cancer are for adenovirus-mediated HSV-TK/GCV gene therapy. By using an adenovirus vector carrying a fusion gene of HSV-TK and green fluorescent protein (GFP), we found that: a) adenoviruses were efficient gene transfer vehicles for all types of NSCLCs; b) all adenocarcinoma and large cell lung cancer cells were good targets for HSV-TK/GCV therapy, whereas one of the squamous cell carcinoma cell lines was not responsive to the treatment; c) bystander effect played a major role in the success of this gene therapy form; d) subcutaneous tumors representing all three NSCLC types were efficiently treated with adenovirus-mediated HSV-TK/GCV gene therapy. In summary, this form of gene therapy appeared to be efficient treatment for human NSCLC and these results warrant further studies with primary lung cancer cells and orthotopic lung tumor models.

Herpes zoster infection has previously been reported as a frequent complication of liver transplantation. Our study suggests that it occurs in approximately 16% of patients receiving induction therapy with alemtuzumab. Although alemtuzumab is a powerful immunosuppressive agent and there is still little information regarding its long-term safety when used in liver transplantation, our data do not suggest any increase in the occurrence and complications of HZ.

The authors report a case of a 47-year-old cytomegalovirus (CMV) immunoglobulin G (IgG) seropositive male patient with end stage renal disease who received a live renal transplant from a CMV IgG seropositive donor. Six months post-transplantation, the patient presented with reduced renal allograft function associated with fever, severe breathlessness, new onset jaundice and pancytopenia. His CMV DNA PCR came positive. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA PCR also came positive (genotype I) though anti-HCV test performed before and after transplantation was negative. The patient was treated with oral valganciclovir and showed improvement of his clinical condition and was subsequently discharged under supervised therapy. However, the patient could not be treated for HCV because of risk of renal allograft rejection. The authors suggest oral valganciclovir for management of CMV infection and proper detection and eradication of HCV before renal transplantation to avoid future complications and prolongation of allograft survival.

Previously, we discovered geldanamycin, a ligand of heat shock protein 90, effectively inhibited herpes simplex virus type 1 replication in vitro and in vivo (mouse encephalitis model). In this study, we demonstrate that geldanamycin has very strong activities against herpes simplex virus type 2 in vitro and in vivo (mouse vagina model). In mouse vagina model, administration of geldanamycin suspension to vagina after virus infection protected the infected mice from death and increased the average survival days in a dose-dependent manner. Geldanamycin also significantly reduced virus shedding from mouse vagina. All geldanamycin-treated groups were statistically significant when compared with the infected control group. The high-dose group of geldanamycin (5.72 mg kg(-1)) was better than acyclovir group (2.86 mg kg(-1)). All geldanamycin vaginal administration mock-infected groups did not show significant body weight loss. Although geldanamycin has strong antiviral activities against various DNA and RNA viruses, geldanamycin is not suitable for systemic administration because of its high toxicity. We consider that geldanamycin is a candidate of topical usage for the treatment of herpes simplex virus type infections.

Forty-two patients (22%) developed VZV infections: localized (n=37) and disseminated infection (n=5). The incidence of VZV infection at 1 and 3 years was 19.3+/-3.3% and 36.8+/-5.2%, respectively. Complications included post-herpetic neuralgia (n=18, 43%), secondary bacterial infections (n=3), and intracranial hemorrhage (n=1) with 2 deaths. A higher risk factor for VZV infection was pre-transplant diagnosis of a lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD): chronic lymphocytic leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (P=0.021, 52.5% in LPD vs. 32.6% in non-LPD group). The use of low-dose acyclovir prophylaxis (P=0.043, 14.7% in acyclovir vs. 41.6% in nonacyclovir group) was found to be protective. Although no VZV infection episodes were noted during the period of acyclovir prophylaxis, 3 episodes of VZV infection were noted after acyclovir cessation.

Herpes simplex virus is one of the most common causes of genital ulcer disease worldwide. Herpes simplex virus-2 is the more common cause of genital herpes, a chronic infection that is characterised by periodic reactivation, with the capacity to produce recurrent symptomatic disease in the host (e.g., vesicular eruption), as well as intermittent asymptomatic shedding. Relapsing episodes may be physically and psychologically distressing. Shedding accounts for the majority of cases of transmission of genital herpes to sexual partners. Pregnant women who are shedding may transmit the virus at the time of delivery, with severe and potentially fatal consequences to the baby. Famciclovir, a synthetic acyclic guanine derivative, is the prodrug of penciclovir, which demonstrates in vitro antiviral activity against various types of herpes virus, including herpes simplex virus-2. Its pharmacokinetics allow for administration in a convenient dosing regimen compared with acyclovir, which may improve compliance. Clinical studies have demonstrated its efficacy in the episodic treatment of relapses, with the most recent report demonstrating its efficacy and tolerance as a single-day treatment. It is also efficacious and well tolerated for the suppression of frequently recurring episodes. These results have been demonstrated in various patient populations, including immunocompetent patients and those infected with HIV. Famciclovir is well tolerated, with an adverse events profile similar to placebo.

With ABT 50 mg, median TTH of primary vesicular lesion was reduced (7 days vs 7.3 days, P=.015), the incidence of blocked herpes episodes was increased by 24.2% (34.9% vs 28.1%; P=.042), and the median duration of herpes episodes was reduced (5.6 days vs 6.4 days, P=.003). During the 9-month follow-up period, recurrence of herpes lesions was less frequent (64.2% vs 73.6%; P=.027) and delayed (205 days vs 165 days, P=.041) in the ABT 50 mg. Both treatments were safe.

CMV end-organ disease and antiviral resistant strains only occurred in D+R- recipients despite the use of prophylaxis in these patients. The D+R- recipients commencing prophylaxis immediately following transplantation had better outcomes compared to those for whom prophylaxis was delayed due to renal impairment. Prophylaxis reduced the incidence of CMV DNAemia, persistent infection, and high viral loads for CMV seropositive (D-R+and D+R+) recipients, but laboratory-guided preemptive therapy effectively controlled CMV infection and prevented disease in these OLT recipients.

A retrospective cohort study of herpes zoster infections in dermatomyositis/polymyositis patients was performed. The patients were followed at a tertiary center from 1991 to 2012. For the control group, each patient with herpes zoster was paired with two patients without herpes zoster. Patients were matched by gender and the type of myositis, age at myositis onset and disease duration.

In order to determine the impact of chickenpox on the general population, we conducted a retrospective study in four medical centres in central Israel. Hospital records of 182 patients discharged with the diagnosis of varicella during a 3-y period were reviewed. The patients' mean age was 7.9 y. A total of 14 patients (8%) were immunocompromised. Bacterial skin or soft tissue infection was the most common complication (32%). Other complications included gastrointestinal manifestations (14%), pneumonia (12%), febrile seizures (10%) and CNS complications (9%). Twenty-one percent of patients were discharged with the diagnosis of uncomplicated varicella. One patient died, one underwent liver transplantation for liver failure and four had persistent neurological sequelae. Forty-four patients (24%) received acyclovir for an average duration of 5.7 d. The mean hospital stay was 4.3 d; it was significantly longer for patients with CNS complications (8 d). We estimate that the hospitalization rate in Israel is 1/285 cases of chickenpox. While mortality from varicella was found to be relatively rare, the economic burden of this infection in Israel is quite substantial.

A 36-year-old woman underwent ABO-incompatible living-donor kidney transplantation. Immunosuppression was achieved by quadruple therapy with tacrolimus, basiliximab, mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), and prednisone. Desensitization and removal of anti-ABO antibody was achieved by administration of MMF for 4 weeks before transplantation followed by intravenous administration of rituximab, double-filtered plasmapheresis, and plasma exchange. At 1 month after transplantation, she complained of left ear pain without vesicle rash, tinnitus, and vertigo. Physical examination revealed left facial paralysis and nystagmus. T2 fluid-attenuated inversion recovery magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) visualized swelling of the left facial nerve. Real-time polymerase chain reaction showed the existence of varicella zoster virus DNA in the patient's tears and saliva. The final diagnosis was Ramsay Hunt syndrome without vesicle rash, which is called zoster sine herpete. The patient was treated by intravenous administration of acyclovir (3 mg/kg, 3 times per day) in addition to the reduction of the MMF dose. For facial nerve palsy, prednisolone was prescribed for 3 days and then gradually tapered. These treatments improved the symptoms of tinnitus and vertigo after a month; the facial nerve palsy completely disappeared after 10 months. This case demonstrated MRI to be a useful modality for the early diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt syndrome without vesicle eruption.

Fifty-four patients with herpes zoster were treated with valacyclovir. On treatment days 1, 8, and 15, pain was scored and saliva examined for varicella-zoster virus (VZV) DNA. VZV DNA was found in every patient the day treatment was started and later disappeared in 82%. There was a positive correlation between the presence of VZV DNA and pain and between VZV DNA copy number and pain (P <.0005). VZV DNA was present in 1 patient before rash and in 4 after pain resolved and was not present in any of 6 subjects with chronic pain or in 14 healthy subjects. Analysis of human saliva has potential usefulness in the diagnosis of neurological disease produced by VZV without rash.

This case report is about an elderly man who presented with a long-standing history of high-grade fever and weight loss. He initially had only hepatosplenomegaly, but then developed jaundice. He also had pancytopenia and raised liver enzymes. His septic screen was negative, but he had a positive Monospot test and immunoglobulin G for Epstein-Barr virus. The liver biopsy showed sinusoidal phagocytosis and the subsequent bone marrow aspiration and biopsy showed significant hemophagocytosis, hence Hemophagocytic syndrome was diagnosed. The fever was refractory to antibiotic and anti-tuberculosis therapy, but it responded only partially to steroids. Full response was only noticed following anti-viral treatment in the form of intravenous Ganciclovir. The patient's general condition, liver enzymes, bilirubin, hematological parameters and even the weight returned back to their normal range 2 weeks after Ganciclovir therapy. Cessation of this drug resulted in relapse of his symptoms and oral antivirals did not help. Splenectomy, steroid pulse therapy and immunosuppressive treatment were only partially helpful. Reintroduction of Ganciclovir did help for a short period. We conclude that our patient had virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome most likely related to Epstein-Barr virus infection, which was then confirmed by the splenic biopsy, and that Ganciclovir can be of great help in eradicating the virus and treating the disease, provided that it is given for a long enough period.

In the majority of cases, the mechanism underlying the resistance to acyclovir (ACV) of herpes simplex viruses (HSVs) is thymidine kinase (TK) deficiency. Plaque isolates from eight ACV-resistant (ACVr) clinical isolates from AIDS patients, of which five reactivated, were sequenced to determine the genetic lesion within the tk gene conferring resistance and whether this may have correlated with reactivation potential. Mutations were clustered within two homopolymer nucleotide stretches. Three plaque isolates (1737-14, 90-150-3, and 89-650-5) had insertion mutations within a stretch of 7 guanosines, while two isolates (89-063-1 and 89-353-1) had frameshift mutations within a stretch of 6 cytosines (a deletion and an insertion, respectively). Mutations resulted in premature termination codons, and the predicted 28- and 32-kDa truncated TK products were detected by Western blot analysis of virus-infected cell extracts. The repair of one homopolymer frameshift mutation (in isolate 1737-14) restored TK activity, demonstrating that this mutation is the basis of TK deficiency. Of the five reactivated isolates, four were TK deficient and contained frameshift mutations while the fifth retained TK activity because of its altered-TK or Pol- phenotype. These data demonstrate that the majority of ACVr clinical isolates contain frameshift mutations within two long homopolymer nucleotide stretches which function as hot spots within the buy zovirax HSV tk gene and produce nonfunctional, truncated TK proteins.

Advanced age of the patient, recipient cytomegalovirus seropositivity, unrelated donor status, human leukocyte antigen mismatch and lower buy zovirax doses of transplanted CD34(+) cells (≤ 6.4×10(6)/kg) significantly increased the risk of cytopenias after day 28. Non-myeloablative hematopoietic cell transplantation had protective effects on anemia and thrombocytopenia after day 28 (adjusted odds ratio 0.76, probability value of 0.05 and adjusted odds ratio 0.31, probability value of <0.0001, respectively) but not on overall or ganciclovir-related neutropenia. This lack of protection appeared to be due to the use of mycophenolate mofetil in the majority of recipients of non-myeloablative hematopoietic cell transplants. Peripheral blood stem cells did not confer protection from cytopenias when compared to bone marrow.

Breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer in women worldwide and is classified into ductal and lobular carcinoma. Breast cancer as well as lobular carcinoma is associated with various risk factors such as gender, age, female hormone exposure, ethnicity, family history and genetic risk factor-associated genes. Genes associated with a high risk of developing breast cancer include BRCA1, BRCA2, p53, PTEN, CHEK2 and ATM. Surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy are used to treat breast cancer but these therapies, except for surgery, have many side-effects such as alopecia, anesthesia, diarrhea and arthralgia. Gene-directed enzyme/prodrug therapy (GEPT) or suicide gene therapy, may improve the therapeutic efficacy of conventional cancer radiotherapy and chemotherapy without side-effects. GEPT most often involves the use of a viral vector to deliver a gene not found in mammalian cells and that produces enzymes which can convert a relatively non-toxic prodrug into a toxic agent. Examples of these systems include cytosine deaminase/5-fluorocytosine (CD/5-FC), carboxyl esterase/irinotecan (CE/CPT-11), and thymidine kinase/ganciclovir (TK/GCV). Recently, therapies based on genetically engineered stem cells (GESTECs) using a GEPT system have received a great deal of attention for their clinical and therapeutic buy zovirax potential to treat breast cancer. In this review, we discuss the potential of GESTECs via tumor tropism effects and therapeutic efficacy against several different types of cancer cells. GESTECs represent a useful tool for treating breast cancer without inducing injuries associated with conventional therapeutic modalities.

Immunotherapy in combination with suicide gene therapy for breast cancer was tested using a metastatic animal model. Subcutaneous injection of the nonimmunogenic breast cancer cell line 4T1 in BALB/C mice gave rise to tumors in 100% of mice with both micrometastases and macrometastases in the lung. We used the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (HSV-TK) gene along with the cytokine genes granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and interleukin-2 (IL-2) to determine their effect on tumor regression and inhibition of lung metastasis. Adenoviral (AV) vectors carrying these transgenes, in separate constructs, were used in this study. Intratumoral administration of AV-TK followed by 10 days of ganciclovir treatment resulted in a delay in tumor growth and, in some cases, in a low to moderate reduction in tumor volume. Inclusion of either GM-CSF or IL-2 gene with HSV-TK resulted in a slightly greater reduction in tumor volume, although these data were not significantly different from those obtained for TK treatment alone. However, when both cytokine genes were combined with TK, a substantial reduction in tumor growth was observed compared with HSV-TK alone (P < .02). Tumor weight data also exhibited superior efficacy of TK/GM-CSF/IL-2 treatment when compared with animals treated with TK gene only (P < .01). More importantly, TK/GM-CSF/IL-2 combination gene therapy induced a significant reduction in lung metastasis compared with any other treatment groups in the 4T1 model (P < .001 between TK GM-CSF/IL-2 versus TK only). Surgical excision of primary tumors after TK/GM-CSF/IL buy zovirax -2 plus ganciclovir treatment resulted in anti-metastatic activity that was similar to that observed for animals in which no surgery was performed. Survival analysis showed a significant difference between animals treated with AV-TK/GM-CSF/IL-2 and animals treated with TK only at 35 days after virus injection (P < .01). Immunophenotypic data suggest infiltration of lymphocytes within the tumor microenvironment in TK- and cytokine gene-treated animals. Thus, the overall data presented here demonstrate that TK gene therapy in combination with GM-CSF and IL-2 gene-mediated immunotherapy strategies have important implications in the treatment of breast cancer.

In addition, two out of four cell culture-adapted HCMV isolates known to exhibit GCV resistance in vitro revealed mutations at codons 460 (M-->V) and 607 (C-->Y), respectively. By reverse hybridization a discrimination of buy zovirax single nucleotide changes at codons 460, 520, 603 and 607 was possible whereby matching exactly the results of the nucleotide sequence analysis for all 23 amplicons examined.

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

The main complications following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation are graft-versus-host disease and poor immune reconstitution leading to severe infections. Mature donor T cells present in the transplant facilitate T cell reconstitution in adults, but also induce graft-versus-host disease, which itself impairs immune reconstitution. Thus, infusing a large number of donor T cells with a diverse repertoire should accelerate functional immune reconstitution buy zovirax after transplantation, only if graft-versus-host disease can be controlled. We previously demonstrated that preventive treatment with ganciclovir could control graft-versus-host disease in mice if donor T cells are made to express viral thymidine kinase as a "suicide" gene. Here we evaluated the recovery of functional antiviral immune responses in such mice. Irradiated mice received an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with thymidine kinase-expressing T cells and were protected from graft-versus-host disease by ganciclovir treatment, and then challenged with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus. Grafted mice could mount efficient antilymphocytic choriomeningitis virus immune responses leading to viral elimination. Furthermore, when transplanted cells were obtained from mice previously immunized against lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, grafted mice developed memory-type accelerated responses against the virus. We conclude that efficient graft-versus-infection effects can be mediated by naive T cells and memory donor T cells that persist after suicide gene therapy for prevention of graft-versus-host disease.

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) reactivation is a relatively common cause of morbidity following autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (auto-HCT). The Centers for Disease Control in 2009 Luvox Recommended Dose recommended extending VZV prophylaxis for 1 year post-transplantation. We retrospectively analyzed rates of VZV reactivation following auto-HCT at our transplant center prior to and after the implementation of extended antiviral prophylaxis in June 2008. The study population was divided into three different cohorts according to the length of VZV prophylaxis as following: (1) prophylaxis until neutrophil recovery to ≥500/μL (n = 77), (2) prophylaxis for 6 months (n = 12), or (3) 12 months (n = 40) post-auto-HCT. All patients received acyclovir 400 mg oral or intravenously twice daily or valacyclovir 500 mg oral daily. For patients in whom VZV reactivation occurred, data was collected on severity of infection, time of onset, treatment, and any associated complications. One hundred twenty-nine patients undergoing auto-HCT between January 1, 2004 and January 31, 2010 were included in the study. There was a significant difference in the rates of VZV reactivation between the neutrophil recovery and 12 months prophylaxis cohorts at 14 % (n = 11) and 2 % (n = 1) (P = 0.04), respectively. VZV reactivation rate in the 6-month prophylaxis group was 17 % (n = 2), but did not reach statistical significance due to small numbers. In the subset of auto-HCT patients treated with bortezomib, 13 % (n = 2) developed VZV reactivation in the neutrophil recovery group, while no events occurred in the other two cohorts. Complications of VZV reactivation include post-herpetic neuralgia (n = 5), severe pain (n = 3), scarring (n = 1), and motor weakness (n = 1); two patients required hospitalization and three patients developed disseminated zoster. Our limited retrospective analysis suggests a significant reduction in rates of post-auto-HCT rates of VZV reactivation with extended 12 months antiviral prophylaxis. VZV reactivation is a significant complication post-auto-HCT, and extended prophylaxis appears to be safe and effective in this setting.

Equine herpesvirus 1 (EHV1) is a ubiquitous equine alphaherpesvirus that causes respiratory disease, neurological symptoms and abortions. Current vaccines are not fully protective and effective therapeutics are lacking. A-5021 [(1'S,2'R)-9-[[1',2'-bis(hydroxymethyl)cycloprop-1'-yl]methyl]guanine], previously shown to possess potent anti-herpetic activity against most human herpesviruses, was evaluated for its potential to inhibit EHV1 replication. In equine embryonic lung (EEL) cells, infected with Crestor 5mg Reviews either a non-neurovirulent (97P70) or a neurovirulent (03P37) EHV1 isolate, A-5021 proved to be about 15-fold more potent than acyclovir in inhibiting viral replication. Moreover, in equine nasal mucosal explants, A-5021 (at 8 and 32μM) was able to completely inhibit viral plaque formation whereas acyclovir did not exert an antiviral effect at these concentrations. Our data demonstrate that A-5021 is a potent inhibitor of EHV1 replication and may have potential for the treatment and/or prophylaxis of infections with this virus.

Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a neglected disease in resource-poor settings, in part because of the perceived complexity of care and because ophthalmologists are rarely accessible. In this paper, we describe a pilot programme of CMV retinitis management by non-ophthalmologists. The programme consists of systematic screening of all high-risk patients (CD4 <100 cells/mm3) by AIDS clinicians using indirect ophthalmoscopy, and treatment of all patients Kemadrin Medication with active retinitis by intravitreal injection of ganciclovir. Prior to this programme, CMV retinitis was not routinely examined for, or treated, in Myanmar.

Infection is a major problem after kidney transplantation. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common viral infection affecting transplant patients. This report presents a rare clinical manifestation of CMV in the form of a hemorrhoid in a 58-year-old woman. One week after undergoing an external hemorrhoidectomy, the patient presented with fever, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia. Pathological analysis showed CMV in the hemorrhoidal tissue, which was confirmed via a positive PP65 antigenemia assay. Therapy with ganciclovir (250 mg IV b.i.d. for 2 weeks) was started. The patient's response to treatment was good, and she has been doing well since that time. Her plasma creatinine level 2 years later was 79.2 micromol/L (normal range, 53-106 micromol/L). Physicians must always be aware of the hazards of CMV in immunocompromised patients with typical, and even with atypical, presentations. Taking into consideration the statement, "prophylaxis precedes treatment," nephrologists must try to detect CMV in their patients (especially during the first 6 months after transplantation) prior to the appearance of any clinical manifestations. If CMV is detected, pre-emptive therapy with ganciclovir should be started.

In cell culture, cidofovir (CDV) was used to select a human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) strain with decreased drug susceptibility. The genotypic characterization of this virus revealed a single base substitution resulting in a K513N amino acid alteration in the viral DNA polymerase (UL54). Performed in parallel, the selection of HCMV for replication in the presence of ganciclovir (GCV) selected an M460V substitution in the phosphotransferase (UL97), as well as a K513N/V812L double substitution in DNA polymerase. Neither of the two DNA polymerase mutations has been previously identified in HCMV drug-resistant strains. To precisely elucidate their role in drug resistance, corresponding recombinant mutant viruses were generated by recombination of nine overlapping viral DNA fragments. The K513N recombinant virus showed 13- and 6.5-fold decreased susceptibility to CDV and GCV in vitro, respectively, compared with the wild-type recombinant virus. Mutation V812L was associated with a moderate (2-3-fold) decrease in susceptibility to CDV, GCV, foscarnet, and adefovir. A multiplicative interaction of the K513N and V812L mutations with regard to the profile and level of drug resistance was demonstrated in recombinant virus expressing both mutations. In vitro replication kinetic experiments revealed that the K513N mutation significantly decreased HCMV replication capacity. Consistent with this finding, the K513N mutant DNA polymerase exhibited reduced specific activity in comparison with the wild-type enzyme and was severely impaired in its 3'-5' exonuclease function. Unexpectedly, the K513N mutant enzyme showed no decrease in susceptibility to CDV-diphosphate or GCV-triphosphate. However, the K513N mutation decreased the susceptibility to CDV and GCV of the oriLyt plasmid replication in the transient transfection/infection assay, suggesting that the DNA replication of the K513N mutant virus is less sensitive to the corresponding inhibitors.

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a common herpesvirus responsible for disseminated or chronic infections in immunocompromised patients. Effective drugs such as acyclovir (ACV), famciclovir (prodrug of penciclovir), and foscarnet are available to treat these infections. Here we report the phenotypic and genetic characterization of four ACV-resistant VZV strains isolated from AIDS patients and transplant recipients. Sensitivity to six antiviral drugs was determined by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, viral thymidine kinase (TK) activity was measured by comparing [(3)H]thymidine and 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl-[(3)H]thymine as substrates, and the TK gene open reading frame was sequenced. Three strains were found to be TK deficient, and the fourth was a mixed population composed of TK-positive and TK-deficient viruses. Each strain presented a unique TK gene mutation that could account for ACV resistance. In one strain, the deletion of two nucleotides at codon 215 induced a premature stop signal at codon 217. In another strain, a single nucleotide addition at codon 167 resulted in a premature stop signal at codon 206. In both other strains, we identified amino acid substitutions already described in other ACV-resistant VZV strains: either Glu-->Gly at residue 48 or Arg-->Gly at residue 143. According to our work and data previously reported on resistant VZV strains, there are three areas in the TK gene where 71% of the mutations described to date are located. These areas are putative candidates for a genotypic diagnosis of ACV resistance.
