Comparison of methods for identifying resistant herpes simplex virus and measuring antiviral susceptibility.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A number of in vitro assays are used to determine susceptibility of HSV to antiviral agents, but results from these in vitro assays do not necessarily correlate with treatment outcome. OBJECTIVES A method with improved capability for identifying an isolate as acyclovir (ACV) or penciclovir (PCV) resistant when resistance is borderline could… (More)
