    Background: Mathematical models can be used to predict the emergence and transmission of antiviral resistance. Previously it has been predicted that high usage of antivirals (in immunocompetent populations) to treat Herpes Simplex Virus type 2 (HSV-2) would only lead to fairly low levels of...

    The antiviral activity of Callissia fragrans and Simnondsia chinensis aquatic and ethanol leaf extracts, as well as purified fractions from these extracts was studied against herpetic viruses in vitro. Ethanol extract of C. fragrans effectively inhibited the infection of Vero cells by HSV-1,...

    Purpose: Herpes Simplex Keratitis (HSK) is the leading cause of corneal blindness in developed nations. Despite active antiviral drugs (nucleoside analogues), there is no effective method preventing recurrent HSK. We tested the ability of ribozymes targeting the mRNAs of essential HSV genes to...

    Treatment of human herpes simplex virus (HSV) diseases represents an important goal, as herpetic infections are not controlled by vaccination. Many therapeutic agents have been developed and used for HSV infections and several alternative natural compounds are under investigation. Most of the...

    Since the 1950's, herpes simplex viruses (HSV) have played prominent roles in the development of antivirals. The first efficacious antivirals, as well as the first safe for systemic use, were developed against HSV. It was only in 1995 when the first antiviral against a target not validated first...

    Acyclovir (ACV) therapy, topical or systemic, showed a significantly high therapeutic efficacy for facial Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) infection in hairless mice. When topical ACV treatment was initiated very early, i.e., three h post-inoculation, the number of mice with latent HSV infection in...

    Background: The proportion of genital ulcer disease (GUD) due to herpes simplex virus type-2 (HSV-2) has increased in sub-Saharan Africa. The most recent 2003 WHO syndromic GUD algorithm includes antiviral treatment for HSV-2 for anyone with "typical" symptoms/signs, and suggests that all GUD...
