Various radiotracers based on uracil nucleosides (e.g. [124I]2'-fluoro-2'-deoxy-5-iodo-1-beta-D-arabinofuranosyluracil, [124I]FIAU) and acycloguanosine derivatives (e.g. [18F]9-[(3-fluoro-1-hydroxy-2-propoxy) methyl] guanine, [18F]FHPG) have been proposed for the non-invasive imaging of herpes simplex virus type 1 thymidine kinase (HSV1-tk) reporter gene expression. However, these radiotracers have been evaluated in different in vitro and in vivo models, precluding a direct comparison. Therefore, we directly compared [18F]FHPG and radioiodinated FIAU to assess their potential for PET imaging of transgene expression. The uptake of [125I]FIAU, [18F]FHPG and [3H]acyclovir was determined in vitro using four different HSV1-tk expressing cell lines and their respective negative controls. The in vitro tracer uptake was generally low in non-transduced parental cell lines. In HSV1-tk expressing cells, [3H]acyclovir showed approximately a twofold higher tracer accumulation, the [18F]FHPG uptake increased by about sixfold and the [125I]FIAU accumulation increased by about 28-fold after 120-min incubation of T1115 human glioblastoma cells. Similar results were found in the other cell lines. In addition, biodistribution and positron emission tomography (PET) studies with [18F]FHPG and [124/125I]FIAU were carried out in tumour-bearing BALB/c mice. Significantly higher specific accumulation of radioactivity was found for [125I]FIAU compared with [18F]FHPG. The ratio of specific tracer accumulation between [125I]FIAU and [18F]FHPG increased from 21 (30 min p.i.) to 119 (4 h p.i.). PET imaging, using [124I]FIAU, clearly visualised and delineated HSV1-tk expressing tumours, whereas only a negligible uptake of [18F]FHPG was observed. This study demonstrated that in vitro and in vivo, the radioiodinated uracil nucleoside FIAU has a significantly higher specific accumulation than the acycloguanosine derivative [18F]FHPG. This suggests that [124I]FIAU should be the preferred reporter probe for PET imaging of HSV1-tk gene expression. Thus, further attempts to develop suitable PET tracers for the assessment of HSV1-tk gene expression should also focus on 18F-labelled uracil derivatives.

In vitro characterization provided direct evidence that the pro-drug was actively metabolized in liver cancer cells by telomerase to release the active form of acyclovir. Alterations in cell cycle and apoptosis were observed following in vitro treatment with ACV-TP-T. In the transgenic and orthotopic mouse models, treatment with ACV-TP-T reduced tumour growth, increased apoptosis, and reduced the proliferation of tumour cells.

An accurate, simple, reproducible, and sensitive liquid chromatographic method is developed and validated to quantitate acyclovir (ACV) in cross-linked chitosan microspheres produced by spray drying. The analysis is carried out using a reversed-phase C18 column with UV-vis detection at 254 nm. The mobile phase is diluted with pure water and acetonitrile (95:5 v/v) at a flow-rate of 0.8 mL/min. The parameters used in the validation process are: linearity, range, quantitation limit, detection limit, accuracy, specificity precision, and ruggedness. The retention time of acyclovir is approximately 3.5 min with symmetrical peaks. The linearity in the range of 1-10 microg/mL presents a correlation coefficient of 0.9999. The chitosan and the tripolyphosphate in the formulation do not interfere with the analysis, and the recovery is quantitative. Results are satisfactory, and the method proves to be suitable to quantitate ACV in cross-linked chitosan microspheres.

A375 tumors showed apoptosis at the ultrastructural level after transduction with the trans-complementing vector system that was not seen with injection of either vector alone. Apoptotic DNA fragments could be co-localized to sites of infection with the adenoviral vectors. A significant survival benefit was achieved for the trans-complementing vector treated animals compared to animals treated with either vector alone. Interestingly, the administration of GCV did not further increase animal survival over treatment with the trans-complementing system of viruses alone, and long-term survival was only seen in the trans-complementing vector treatment group. Intraperitoneal administration of a pseudo-wild-type vector Ad.dl327 resulted in significant hepatotoxicity, while intraperitoneal administration of the trans-complementing vectors resulted in only mild liver abnormalities.

Aciclovir (800 mg) can be given in HIV-infected patients who develop non-complicated varicella-zoster virus infection. Intravenous aciclovir should be reserved for severe disseminated and/or neurological forms and for highly immunodepressed patients (for example those with a CD4 count below 200/mm3). These findings should be confirmed by prospective studies.

An economic model was designed to simulate long-term costs and outcomes of prolonged prophylaxis with valganciclovir (200 vs. 100 days) in a cohort of 10,000 high-risk renal transplant patients over 5 and 10 years. The first year of the model was based on the results of the Improved Protection Against CMV in Transplant trial and the extension to the long-term periods (5 and 10 years); and quality of life data were based on evidence retrieved through a systematic literature search. This analysis was conducted from the US healthcare payer perspective.

Hospitalization data and medical resource utilization data were prospectively collected alongside two randomized trials. In the first trial, the patients were randomized to 3-month prophylaxis with either oral ganciclovir (1 g t.i.d., n = 36) or valacyclovir (2 g q.i.d., n = 35), and to the control group (n = 12) managed by deferred therapy. In the second trial, the patients were randomly assigned to 3-month valacyclovir prophylaxis (n = 34) or preemptive therapy with valganciclovir (900 mg b.i.d. for a minimum of 14 days, n = 36) for significant CMV DNAemia. The cost analysis involved all real costs directly related to CMV during the first year after renal transplantation.

A 73-year-old woman underwent vitrectomy and intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA) of the right eye and cataract surgery with IVTA of the left eye, for bilateral diabetic macular edema. The patient presented with visual loss in both eyes three-months postoperatively. The fundoscopic examination revealed white-yellow, necrotic peripheral lesions in the superotemporal quadrant of both eyes. Although bilateral acute retinal necrosis was suspected, azotemia resulting from diabetic nephropathy limited the use of acyclovir. Antiviral treatment was not started. A sample of the aqueous humor for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis was obtained. One week later, the PCR results indicated the presence of cytomegalovirus (CMV). Since the retinal lesions did not progress and did not threaten the macula, the patient was followed without treatment for CMV. The retinal lesions progressively regressed and completely resolved in both eyes by six months of follow-up. Patients with IVTA-induced CMV retinitis may not require systemic treatment with ganciclovir.

Herpes simplex virus-thymidine kinase/ganciclovir (HSV-TK/GCV) therapy was performed in five cases of recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. In the last study, the authors demonstrated response of the HSV-TK/GCV therapy against tumor progression (Adachi N, et al.: No Shinkei Geka). The aim of this study is to estimate the biosafety of in vivo HSV-TK gene transfer and GCV administration in five cases. Six parameters were analyzed sequentially up to the 6th month after the vector producer cells (VPCs) inoculation as follows; i) clinical symptom, ii) vital sign, iii) peripheral blood cell count, iv) blood biochemical analysis, v) serological test, vi) molecular biological test in peripheral leukocytes. In addition, ten systemic organs extracted from the two subjects in whom death occurred were also analyzed biologically. One case suffered from transient deterioration of left hemiparesis on the 34th day, which could be considered a probably-related but not adverse event. Serological tests detected anti-VPC antibody at the 1st month in one case and anti-vector antibody at the 1st and 4th month in another. The other examinations revealed no abnormal findings at all. These data indicate that the HSV-TK/GCV therapy might be a satisfactorily safe approach against glioblastoma multiforme.

To explore the potential for molecular immunotherapies in the treatment of malignant gliomas, we evaluated the efficacy of subcutaneous tumor cell vaccines in the treatment of intracranial 9L tumors, using 9L gliosarcoma cell lines stably transduced with the murine interleukin-4 cDNA (9L-IL4), the herpes simplex virus-thymidine kinase cDNA (9L-Tk) or both (9L-IL4-Tk). The expression of multiple genes from a single transcript was achieved by incorporating internal ribosomal entry site (IRES) cassettes in the retroviral constructs. Subcutaneous immunization of rats with nonirradiated 9L-IL4 cells or 9L-IL4-Tk cells followed by treatment with ganciclovir (GCV) completely protected the animals from a subsequent intracranial challenge with wild-type 9L cells. In contrast, only 50% of animals immunized with 9L-Tk cells and 0% of 9L-neo immunized animals rejected the same challenge with wild-type 9L. More importantly, treatment of established (day 3) intracranial 9L tumors with genetically engineered tumor cells resulted in long-term survival (> 100 days) for 25-43% of 9L-IL4-Tk immunized animals and for 27% of nonirradiated 9L-IL4 immunized animals. In striking contrast, no 9L-Tk, 9L-neo or irradiated 9L-IL4 immunized animals survived for more than 33 days. As a marker of a cellular immune response, splenocytes from nonirradiated 9L-IL4, 9L-Tk or 9L-IL4-Tk immunized animals produced interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) in greater amounts than those from 9L-neo immunized or Hank's balanced salts solution (HBSS) treated animals when stimulated with wild-type 9L in vitro. Our findings support the use of tumor cell vaccines expressing the IL-4 and HSVtk genes for the treatment of malignant gliomas.

Infection with herpes simplex virus (HSV) is extremely common worldwide. In immunocompromised patients anogenital HSV disease may have atypical features and may be very severe. Treatment of aciclovir-resistant anogenital HSV disease is challenging, as resistance to alternative treatments may occur, and effective treatment generally involves intravenous therapy with relatively toxic agents such as foscarnet. This case report presents three immunocompromised patients with presumed aciclovir-resistant anogenital HSV disease who were successfully treated with topical imiquimod. Imiquimod promotes local immune activation, which results in resolution of viral lesions such as anogenital warts and HSV disease. It is convenient to use and avoids the necessity for intravenous treatment with substantial systemic toxicity. In addition, as the mode of action of imiquimod buy zovirax is related to immune stimulation rather than direct antiviral activity, it may be used repeatedly without resistance developing.

The delivery of "suicide" herpes simplex virus type-1 thymidine kinase gene (tk) into tumor cells, followed by treatment with synthetic nucleotide analogues (gancyclovir, acyclovir), is a perspective approach to cancer therapy. Serious limitations in employment of the existing means of gene delivery into target cells constitute the main obstacle for cancer gene therapy development. In the present work a possibility to use a nonviral gene delivery system is shown based on the employment of lysine rich peptide K8 and amphipathic peptide JTS-1 for transferring tk gene into human hepatoma HepG2 cells. Cationic peptide K8 forms compact complexes with plasmid DNA, buy zovirax and JTS-1 acts as a pH-dependent endosomal releasing agent. Transfection of HepG2 cells by tk expression vector coupled with K8/JTS-1 peptides, followed by acyclovir administration (50-100 micrograms/ml) for 24 h leads to cell cycle arrest in the G1/S checkpoint of some cells, which eventually die through apoptosis. Treatment of HepG2 cells with higher acyclovir concentration (200 micrograms/ml) additionally results in a nonspecific toxic effect. The above results demonstrate the efficacy of K8/JTS-1 delivery system for the "suicide" cancer gene therapy, and may be regarded as a basis for further elaboration of "suicide" cancer approaches in vivo.

Using a replication-defective adenoviral vector (cytomegalovirus, CMV) containing the beta-galactosidase gene (Ad-CMV-beta-gal) as a control and Ad-CMV-TK as the therapeutic vector under the transcriptional control of the CMV promoter, transduction efficiency was assessed in vitro by infecting LNCaP and PC-3 androgen-dependent and independent human prostate cancer buy zovirax cells with Ad-CMV-beta-gal, and using X-gal staining. The TK activity in prostate cancer cells infected with Ad-CMV-TK was determined by measuring TK-mediated [3H]-gancyclovir phosphorylation. The sensitivity of LNCaP and PC-3 cells to Ad-CMV-TK in vitro was determined after infection with the therapeutic vector with or without acyclovir. The inhibition of PC-3 tumour growth in vivo induced by the Ad-CMV-TK/acyclovir suicide-gene system was assessed in separate and controlled experiments using human prostate cancer mouse models. Ki-67 proliferative antigen and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), both useful proliferative indices, were evaluated using immunohistochemical staining (MIB-1 monoclonal antibody and monoclonal anti-PCNA antibody) in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues from gene therapy-treated and control animals.

The bioavailability of a generic preparation of acyclovir (Avorax) was compared with the innovator product, Zovirax. Twelve healthy volunteers participated in the study, conducted according to a randomized, two-way crossover design. The preparations were compared using the parameters area under the plasma concentration time curve (AUC(0-infinity), peak plasma concentration (Cmax), and time to reach peak plasma concentration (Tmax). No statistically significant difference was observed between the Tmax or the logarithmic transformed AUC(0-infinity) and C(max) values of the two preparations. In addition, the 90% confidence interval for the ratio of the logarithmic transformed AUC(0-infinity) values of Avorax over those of Zovirax was found to lie between 0.85 and 1.06, while that of the logarithmic transformed Cmax values was between 0 buy zovirax .95 and 1.25, being within the bioequivalence limit of 0.80-1.25. Moreover, the elimination rate constant (k(e)), elimination half-life (t(1/2)), and apparent volume of distribution (Vd) values obtained with the two preparations were comparable and not significantly different statistically.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) possess tumor-tropic properties and consequently have been used to deliver therapeutic agents for cancer treatment. Their potential in cancer therapy highlights the need for a consistent and renewable source for the production of uniform human MSCs suitable for clinical applications. In this study, we seek to investigate whether human embryonic stem cells can be used as a cell source to fulfill this goal. We generated MSC-like cells from two human embryonic stem cell lines, HuES9 and H1, and observed that MSC-like cells derived from human embryonic stem cells buy zovirax were able to migrate into human glioma intracranial xenografts after being injected into the cerebral hemisphere contralateral to the tumor inoculation site. We engineered these cells with baculoviral and lentiviral vectors, respectively, for transient and stable expression of the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene. In tumor-bearing mice the engineered MSC-like cells were capable of inhibiting tumor growth and prolonging survival in the presence of ganciclovir after they were injected either directly into the xenografts or into the opposite hemisphere. Our findings suggest that human embryonic stem cell-derived MSCs may be a viable and attractive alternative for large-scale derivation of targeting vehicles for cancer therapy.

Lentiviral vector containing the HSV1-tk and firefly luciferase (fLuc) gene was infected into C6 and C6-TL expressing HSV1-tk and fLuc gene was generated. C6-TL showed higher [(125)I]IVDU uptake than C6. buy zovirax The survival rate of C6-TL decreased more rapidly with increasing GCV dose and was well correlated with fLuc activity. The images of microPET clearly demonstrated higher uptake of [(18)F]FHBG into the C6-TL tumor. Inhibition of tumor growth was observed in C6-TL tumor-bearing mice treated with GCV through tumor size measurement and bioluminescence imaging. The therapeutic effect of HSV1-tk/GCV system can be monitored using bioluminescent imaging and tumor size measurement.

Although the epidemiological features of CMV diseases are changing in the setting of potent, combination antiretroviral therapy, continued attention must be paid to CMV diseases in patients infected with the buy zovirax human immunodeficiency virus to prevent irreversible endorgan dysfunction. The initial and maintenance treatment of CMV retinitis must be individualized based on the characteristics of the lesions, including location and extent, specific patient factors, and characteristics of available therapies among others. Management of relapse or refractory retinitis must be likewise individualized. Ophthalmologic screening for patients at high risk for retinitis or who have a prior diagnosis of extraretinal disease is recommended. Recommendations for gastrointestinal, pulmonary, and neurologic manifestations are included.

Rabbit neutrophil peptide-1 (NP-1), a prototypic alpha-defensin, protects cells in vitro from infection by clinical and laboratory isolates of herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). Incubation of concentrated virus stocks for 1 h with noncytotoxic concentrations of NP-1 reduces subsequent infection by >98%. Pretreating cells with NP-1 for 1 h prior to inoculation with untreated virus also prevents Prandin Dose infection. NP-1, a cationic peptide, does not compete with viral envelope glycoproteins for binding to cellular heparan sulfate receptors, but it prevents viral entry. No VP16, a major viral tegument protein, is transported to the cell nucleus in the presence of NP-1. Infectious center assays demonstrate that NP-1 also inhibits cell-to-cell viral spread. Thus, NP-1 prevents virally mediated fusion events, entry, and cell-to-cell spread. This unique mechanism of anti-HSV activity, coupled with established antibacterial and possible anti-human immunodeficiency virus type 1 activities of defensins, render this family of compounds excellent candidates for further development as topical microbicides.

Biphenyl hydrolase-like protein (BPHL, NCBI accession number NP_004323) is a novel human serine hydrolase recently identified as a human valacyclovirase, catalyzing the hydrolytic activation of the antiviral prodrugs valacyclovir and valganciclovir. The substrate specificity of BPHL was investigated with a series of amino acid ester prodrugs of the therapeutic nucleoside analogues: acyclovir, zidovudine, floxuridine, 2-bromo-5,6-dichloro-1-(beta-D-ribofuranosyl) benzimidazole, and gemcitabine. The hydrolysis of typical esterase and aminopeptidase substrates by BPHL was also investigated. The results indicate that the substrate specificity of BPHL is largely determined by the amino acid acyl promoiety, and is less sensitive to the nucleoside parent drugs. For all nucleoside parent drugs, BPHL preferred the hydrophobic amino acids valine, phenylalanine, and proline over the charged amino acids lysine and aspartic acid. The position and monoester or diester form of the Lopid 600 Dosage prodrug were also important, with BPHL exhibiting higher affinity for the 5'-esters than for the 3'-esters and the 3',5'-diesters irrespective of amino acid type. Further, the presence of the 3'-amino acid ester considerably reduced the hydrolysis rate of the 5'-amino acid ester functionality. BPHL exhibited stereoselectivity with an L/D specificity ratio of 32 for 5'-valyl floxuridine and 1.5 for 5'-phenylalanyl floxuridine. The substrate specificity suggests that the substrate-binding pocket of BPHL has a hydrophobic acyl binding site which can accommodate the positively charged alpha-amino group, while having an alcohol leaving group binding site that can accommodate nucleoside analogues with a relatively generous spatial allowance. In conclusion, BPHL catalyzes the hydrolytic activation of amino acid esters of a broad range of therapeutic nucleoside analogues in addition to valacyclovir and valganciclovir and has considerable potential for utilization as an activation target for design of antiviral and anticancer nucleoside analogue prodrugs.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a major cause of morbidity following lung transplantation, but active CMV infection has not been described before transplantation. Since 1990, we have screened all lung-transplant recipients for CMV infection with viral urine cultures on the day of transplantation. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of all 102 lung-allograft recipients transplanted between March 1990 and September 1998. Patients with positive urine cultures for CMV were compared to culture negative patients for age, gender, pretransplant diagnosis, time from diagnosis to transplantation, CMV serostatus, use of pretransplant immunosuppression, T-lymphocyte subsets, and presence of fever. Posttransplant outcomes assessed were duration of intubation and hospitalization, acute rejection, frequency of CMV disease, duration of Nashville rabbit antithymocyte serum or globulin (N-RATS/G) and ganciclovir, and survival. Five (5%) of 102 patients had positive urine cultures for CMV; none had symptoms of CMV infection. All 5 had idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) (5/5 vs 27/97; p = 0.002). The age, gender, and CMV serostatus of these patients did not differ from the 97 patients in the culture negative group. Four (80%) of the 5 patients with positive cultures were receiving treatment with azathioprine or cyclophosphamide vs only 18 (19%) of the 97 patients with negative cultures (p = 0.007), and all 5 (100%) were receiving steroids compared to 50 (52%) of 97 patients with negative cultures (p = 0.06). Culture-positive IPF patients, when compared with the 27 culture-negative IPF patients, did not differ in any demographic variable or in the use of immunosuppression, but culture-positive patients Paxil 30mg Dose were more likely to have a CD4/CD8 T-cell subset ratio <1.0 (p = 0.02). Following transplantation, 3 (60%) of 5 IPF patients with positive CMV cultures developed CMV disease compared to 3 (11%) of 27 IPF patients with negative cultures (p = 0.03). Patients with positive cultures also received more days of parenteral antiviral therapy (mean 44 +/- 11 days vs 16 +/- 10 days; p < 0.001). Utilizing pretransplant screening, we have discovered that 16% of patients with IPF had active CMV infection, which was associated with both alterations in their T-cell subsets and a greater risk for CMV disease after transplantation. This occurrence of occult CMV infection in patients with IPF has not been previously recognized, and has important implications.

Statistically significant models were evolved to predict entrapment efficiency and particle size. The effect of factors X1, X2 and [Formula: see text] was found to be statistically significant in nature. Response variables, i.e. entrapment efficiency and particle size, were simultaneously optimized using desirability function using Design Expert software. This process allowed the selection of most suitable level of factors to achieve desired level of particle size and entrapment efficiency. The results of multiple linear regression analysis revealed that for obtaining desirable particle size (less than 250 nm) and entrapment efficiency (more than 17%), the NPs should be prepared using 1:3 drug to polymer ratio and 0.04 M NaCl. Acyclovir was found to be Tegretol Suspension compatible with PLA as indicated by DSC and FT-IR studies. The experimental values obtained from the optimized formulation highly agreed with the predicted values. The drug release from the optimized formulation exhibited biphasic pattern and the drug release kinetics was best explained by Weibull model.

Gene-directed enzyme Mobic 415atr Review prodrug therapy (GDEPT) is a two step therapeutic approach for cancer gene therapy. In the first step, the transgene is delivered into the tumor and expressed. In the second step a prodrug is administered and is selectively activated by the expressed enzyme. The first GDEPT system described was the thymidine kinase gene of the Herpes Simplex virus (HSVtk) in combination with the prodrug Ganciclovir (GCV). A large number of experiments have been performed with this system, in different types of tumors and initial studies in animal models were very promising. This encouraged investigators to move into clinical trials although poor results have been obtained so far. A large effort has been made with numerous different strategies to enhance HSVtk/GCV efficacy in cellular and in vivo models and very strong cytotoxic effects have been obtained. The present review describes the current state of preclinical research and summarizes the results of the clinical trials undertaken.
