A Study Comparing Daily Treatment With Valaciclovir To Placebo For Suppression Of Herpes Simplex Virus HSV-2 Genital Herpes In Newly Diagnosed Patients

Genital herpes (GH) is a commonly occurring sexually transmitted disease caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of HSV, type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2); both can cause GH, although the latter is much more likely to produce frequent recurrences of GH lesions. Evidence suggests that there are advantages to using suppressive vs. episodic treatment, which include increased intervals between the pain and discomfort of genital herpes recurrences. Therefore, this ...

Examining the Ability of Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 (HSV2) Therapy to Reduce HIV Target Cell Numbers in the Cervix

Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV2), the most common cause of genital herpes, increases a woman's risk of HIV acquisition from 3-6 fold, perhaps because HSV2-infected women have increased numbers of HIV "target cells" (CD4 T cells and dendritic cells) in the cervical mucosa. However, recent clinical trials showed no impact of HSV2 suppression on HIV acquisition rates. The reasons for this negative result are unclear. The investigators propose to examine the effect of valacyclovi...
