A series of antiviral compounds were examined for their activity against human herpesvirus type 6 (HHV‐6), type 7 (HHV‐7) and type 8 (HHV‐8). They were selected either because they are already approved for clinical use in the treatment of herpesvirus infections (acyclovir, valaciclovir, penciclovir, famciclovir, ganciclovir, brivudin, foscarnet and cidofovir) or have demonstrated marked activity against herpesviruses (lobucavir, H2G, A‒5021, D/L‐cyclohexenyl G and S2242). In view of their host… Expand
