Acyclovir in the Treatment of Herpes Viruses - a Review.
TLDR
Acyclovir remains the gold standard in the treatment of herpes virus infections, mainly due to the emerging of the new delivery systems improving considerably its bioavailability, and the analogues of acyclovir, especially their esters, characterized by significantly higher bioavailability and safety, may gradually replace acy Clovir in selected applications.

Herpes simplex virus infections, Pathophysiology and Management
TLDR
Recurrent outbreaks are common and vary between individuals; genetics play a role in the frequency of cold sore outbreaks. Expand

TLDR
This communication presents a classification and description of the principal changes encountered, and suggests guidelines for the management of complications involving the oropharyngeal mucosa. Expand
Acyclovir in the management of herpes virus infections in immunosuppressed children
SummarySix children, aged from 5 to 15 years who developed herpes virus infections while on chemotherapy for malignant disease were treated with systemic acyclovir (Acycloguanasine). ClinicalExpand
Quantitation of herpes simplex virus type 1 shed in preocular tear film of rabbits treated with acyclovir.
TLDR
The effects of acyclovir were temporary because there were significant increase in preocular tear film virus shedding after cessation of treatment and in the combination regimen added nothing to the effectiveness of local application. Expand
The Clinical Use of Acyclovir in the Treatment of Herpes Simplex Corneal Ulceration
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that Acyclovir is at least as good as Ara-A, and is effective in the treatment of IDU and Ara- A resistant ulcers. Expand
Randomised double-blind trial of acyclovir and idoxuridine in dendritic corneal ulceration.
TLDR
The results of a randomised double-blind clinical trial of 3% acyclovir and 0.5% idoxuridine ophthalmic ointments in 60 patients with corneal dendritic ulceration are presented, finding patients treated with acy Clovir healed more rapidly than those who received IDU. Expand

A defect in platelet aggregation in Bartter's syndrome.
TLDR
A defect in both the first and second phase of platelet aggregation was found in four subjects with Bartter's syndrome, although template bleeding times were normal, which may be associated with the altered prostaglandin metabolism found in this condition. Expand

Hypokalemia, in Bartter's Syndrome and Other Disorders, Produces Resistance to Vasopressors via Prostaglandin Overproduction
TLDR
It is suggested that hypokalemia, by stimulation of the synthesis of prostaglandin E in the kidney, produces hyperreninemia, which increases the vascular resistance to angiotensin II and to norepinephrine. Expand
The effect of beta-adrenergic and cholinergic blockade on the circadian rhythm of gastrins in serum.
TLDR
The inhibition of gastric secretion of acid by anticholinergics is presumably due to an action on the parietal cells; according to this study, the inhibition is connected by an increased gastrin stimulus. Expand
The relation of plasma gastrin to the circadian rhythm of gastric acid secretion in man.
TLDR
The hourly secretory pattern, which described a circadian periodicity (low morning, high eveni), was similar to that described in previous studies of seasonal affective disorders. Expand
