To report long-term outcomes of topical ganciclovir (GCV) and corticosteroids in Korean patients with cytomegalovirus (CMV) corneal endotheliitis.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Ocular immunology and inflammation
To describe the presentation and management of 2 cases of Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) with failure secondary to cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection and prophylaxis with t...
To observe the effect of 2% ganciclovir eye drops on Posner-Schlossman syndrome (PSS) patients with positive cytomegalovirus (CMV) in aqueous humor. Prospective study. The cases clinically diagnosed ...
Research with animal models of Pseudomonas aeruginosa keratitis has shown that use of a topical corticosteroid alone against an established infection can significantly increase the number of colonizin...
Cytomegalovirus infection after a heart transplant is a recurrent medical condition. Its frequency increases when the donors are serum-positive, and the recipients are serum-negative to this virus. In...
To evaluate herpesvirus infection in patients with corneal endotheliitis and high intraocular pressure (IOP) using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in aqueous humor samples.
PRIMARY: To determine the pharmacokinetics, MTD, and long-term safety and tolerance of oral ganciclovir in HIV-infected infants, children, and adolescents. SECONDARY: To evaluate the effe...
A Randomized, Controlled Study of the Safety and Preventive Efficacy of Oral Ganciclovir When Used in Conjunction With An Intravitreal Ganciclovir Implant in the Treatment of Cytomegalovirus Retinitis
To demonstrate the efficacy of oral ganciclovir in preventing new cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease in AIDS patients with unilateral CMV retinitis treated with an intravitreal ganciclovir impl...
To make intravenous (IV) ganciclovir available to immunocompromised patients with life-threatening or sight-threatening Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, where the symptoms of the disease a...
To provide ganciclovir on a compassionate use basis to immunocompromised patients with serious cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections and to study safety and efficacy in this patient population.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of oral ganciclovir for prophylaxis against cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinal and gastrointestinal mucosal disease in HIV-infected patients with severe immu...
An ACYCLOVIR analog that is a potent inhibitor of the Herpesvirus family including cytomegalovirus. Ganciclovir is used to treat complications from AIDS-associated cytomegalovirus infections.
Infection of the retina by cytomegalovirus characterized by retinal necrosis, hemorrhage, vessel sheathing, and retinal edema. Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a major opportunistic infection in AIDS patients and can cause blindness.
New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.
Infection with CYTOMEGALOVIRUS, characterized by enlarged cells bearing intranuclear inclusions. Infection may be in almost any organ, but the salivary glands are the most common site in children, as are the lungs in adults.
A genus of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, subfamily BETAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting the salivary glands, liver, spleen, lungs, eyes, and other organs, in which they produce characteristically enlarged cells with intranuclear inclusions. Infection with Cytomegalovirus is also seen as an opportunistic infection in AIDS.
