PRIMARY: To evaluate the clinical activity of foscarnet cream on the index lesion of mucocutaneous herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections in immunocompromised patients previously unresponsive to acyclovir treatment.
SECONDARY: To evaluate the clinical activity and virologic activity of foscarnet cream on all treated lesions in this patient population. To evaluate the local tolerance and side effects of treatment with foscarnet cream in this patient population.
Patients receive topical applications of one percent foscarnet cream five times daily for up to 6 weeks; those who show no evidence of epithelialization of the index lesion after 3 or more weeks are removed from study and offered intravenous foscarnet. Patients who show a good response to topical foscarnet cream at the end of 6 weeks may continue receiving treatment at the discretion of the investigator.

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.)
