Questions have arisen regarding the clinical outcome and the possible selection of resistant virus when patients with genital herpes discontinue prolonged chronic acyclovir; 239 immunocompetent patients with a history of frequently recurring genital herpes who stopped successful suppressive therapy after 6 years were studied. Of the patients, 85.8% had at(More)
A new class of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) analogs has been developed that causes a rapid gain in both trabecular and cortical bone in models of osteopenia. This study investigates the efficacy of the PTHrP analog, RS-66271 ([MAP(1-10)]22-31 hPTHrP(1-34)-NH(2)), as systemic therapy for impaired bone healing in corticosteroid-treated rabbits.(More)
A 34-year-old healthy woman presented with a 15-month history of persistent, nonhealing vulvar ulcerations due to herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 2. Extensive dermatologic workup and serial skin biopsies failed to reveal an underlying vulvar dermatosis or autoimmune bullous disorder. Virologic studies revealed resistance to acyclovir in vitro due to(More)
A total of 100 herpes simplex viruses isolated from lesions not responding to acyclovir (ACV) therapy were recovered from 51 patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus. In vitro analysis of these isolates included testing their susceptibility to ACV and determining their thymidine kinase (TK) phenotypes. Of the 100 isolates evaluated, 23 were ACV(More)
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection is common in persons coinfected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In a prospective study, daily viral cultures of the mouth, genitals, and rectum were collected from 68 HIV-positive and 13 HIV-negative men who have sex with men. Subjects completed a median of 57 days of follow-up. Anogenital HSV-2 cultures were(More)
Energy expenditure and energy intake were determined in three subjects during a 160-kilometer backpacking trip. Prior to the trip, heart rate and oxygen consumption during treadmill walking while carrying a backpack were measured. Subjects recorded heart rate during hiking. Heart rate was used to estimate energy expenditure based on the heart rate : oxygen(More)
Normal adults with six or more episodes of genital herpes in the previous year were enrolled in a one-year, multicenter, double-blind trial comparing placebo with 400 mg of acyclovir administered orally twice daily. Patients with episodes during the study were offered 200 mg of acyclovir administered orally five times daily for five days; this allowed(More)
Two patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who developed severe ulcerative proctitis caused by herpes simplex virus type 2 that was resistant to acyclovir were successfully treated with 6 weeks of high-dose, continuous-infusion acyclovir sodium (1.5 to 2.0 mg/kg per hour). Viruses cultured from the lesions were resistant to acyclovir in vitro(More)
A four-week retrospective survey of intravenous fluid and electrolyte prescriptions on post-operative surgical patients revealed wide variability in fluid and electrolyte prescription by medical staff. Median volume of intravenous fluid prescribed was 3000 ml (range 1667-5000). Total sodium prescribed varied from 0 to 770, median 242 mmol/day), with(More)
