II. Evaluate whether high-dose acyclovir is safe and tolerated in the newborn. III. Assess resistance to antiviral medication. IV. Amplify disease classification for the purpose of predicting prognosis. V. Assess any changes in viral excretion patterns. VI. Evaluate whether antigens and antibodies specific for HSV glycoproteins within the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) predict long-term neurologic outcome.
VII. Evaluate whether specific antigens and antibodies in the CSF appear late after treatment and are indicative of insidious reactivation of virus in the brain.
Neonates are treated with intravenous acyclovir for 21 days. Patients are followed at day 28, and at 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 months.

This study investigated the safety and effectiveness of famciclovir compared to acyclovir in patients with herpes zoster to determine if both regimens are equally suited to treat uncomplicated herpes ...
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.
