A Safety And Tolerability Study Of Valaciclovir Oral Suspension In Infants And Children

2014-07-23 21:45:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Limited data are available on valaciclovir use in children and valaciclovir is not currently approved for use in pediatrics. The marketed formulation of valaciclovir is not ideal for use in pre-adolescent patients who may have trouble swallowing solid oral dosage forms. An extemporaneous suspension formulation of valaciclovir has been developed to expedite the provision of benefits to children similar to those from administration of valaciclovir solid formulations in adults.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Trans-acting protein that combines with host factors to induce immediate early gene transcription in herpes simplex virus.

A cellular transcriptional coactivator that was originally identified by its requirement for the stable assembly IMMEDIATE-EARLY PROTEINS of the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS. It is a nuclear protein that is a transcriptional coactivator for a number of transcription factors including VP16 PROTEIN; GA-BINDING PROTEIN; EARLY GROWTH RESPONSE PROTEIN 2; and E2F4 TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR. It also interacts with and stabilizes HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS PROTEIN VMW65 and helps regulate GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of IMMEDIATE-EARLY GENES in HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS.

A group of acute infections caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 or type 2 that is characterized by the development of one or more small fluid-filled vesicles with a raised erythematous base on the skin or mucous membrane. It occurs as a primary infection or recurs due to a reactivation of a latent infection. (Dorland, 27th ed.)

Infection of the genitals (GENITALIA) with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in either the males or the females.

Herpes simplex, caused by type 1 virus, primarily spread by oral secretions and usually occurring as a concomitant of fever. It may also develop in the absence of fever or prior illness. It commonly involves the facial region, especially the lips and the nares. (Dorland, 27th ed.)
