A phase I/II study evaluated the pharmacokinetics, tolerability, and antiviral activity of oral ganciclovir in persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Oral bioavailability ranged from 2.6% to 7.3%. The mean maximum serum concentration achieved at 1000 mg every 8 h was 1.11 micrograms/mL, and mean trough level was 0.54 microgram/mL. The(More)
Treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis with oral ganciclovir results in relatively low plasma concentrations of drug, which theoretically could cause more frequent viral resistance compared with intravenous (iv) ganciclovir. By use of a plaque-reduction assay to quantify phenotypic sensitivity to ganciclovir, virus isolates were studied from patients(More)
