1995 Feb;17(1):33-47. Intravenous immunoglobulins suppress the recurrences of genital herpes simplex virus: a clinical and immunological study. Effective treatment is not currently available for suppressing the recurrence of genital herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections. Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been encouraging. Recent data by others support these results in showing similar effects of HSV1 on A and P-tau (see (Alvarez et al. Virol., 33 (1991), pp. HSV-1 infections in humans are very common and usually are of a benign nature. Recurrent genital HSV-2 infection is clinically very different from first episode infections. With high-dose acyclovir therapy, the mortality rate for disseminated neonatal HSV disease is 29 (112).
(63) used an experimental, human hyperimmune serum from subjects immunized with a two-component acellular vaccine to treat 33 children, while an equal number received an albumin placebo. Since 1960, a human tetanus immune globulin (TIG) has been available in the United States, but in some areas of the world only equine antitoxin is available. (107) gave monthly IVIG to 11 patients with recurrent genital HSV infection and compared them to patients treated with acyclovir. Maternal genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection; Monthly immunoglobulin therapy decreased recurrence, severity, and duration of lesions in genital herpes 77, 78. A comprehensive HSV keratitis treatment guideline authored by Drs. GRADE is a systematic approach to grading the strength of the total body of evidence that is available to support recommendations on a specific clinical management issue. Two well-regarded retrospective cohort studies from Rochester, Minnesota provide us with much of what we now know about the incidence and prevalence of HSV keratitis in the United States.14, 18, 19 The first study spanned 33 years (1950 1982) and included 122 patients,18 and the second study spanned 32 years (1976 2007) and included 394 patients. In humans, recurrent ocular HSV-1 disease has been attributed most to use of prostaglandin agonists, corticosteroids, and inhibitors of angiogenesis.
Controlled Trial; Immunopharmacol Immunotoxicol 1995 Feb; 17(1):33-47. Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is also known as genital herpes. Herpes viruses are transmitted from human to human in different ways. Recurrence of the viral symptoms is usually milder than the original infection. Early intravenous (IV; into the veins) administration of acyclovir is also a treatment for chicken pox pneumonia. List the indications and limitations of oral acyclovir treatment for HSV infection. HSV1 and HSV2 primarily infect human populations.
Passive Immunity In Prevention And Treatment Of Infectious Diseases
Grant support: in part by grant AI-14495 from the National Institutes of Health, training grant AI-07044 to Dr. A trial of topical acyclovir in genital herpes simplex virus infections. 1973;;33::1491–7. However, the lack of a reliable mouse model that supports efficient in vivo reactivation (IVR) resulting in production of infectious HSV1 and/or disease has hampered progress. Reactivated HSV1 is the cause of much human suffering and several diseases including most frequently recurrent oral infections and eye infections, that are a major cause of blindness in the USA. Chronic recurrent orolabial and genital HSV infections occur in some patients resulting in physical disabilities, social isolation and significant emotional trauma 7,8. (i.e. interferon, intravenous immunoglobulin). Additional controlled clinical data in support of each of. Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) or recurrent spontaneous abortion is much less common, occurring in about 1 in 100 pregnant women. The concept that successful pregnancy requires some form of suppression of the maternal immune response is supported by reports that failure to downregulate maternal responses to recall antigens, such as tetanus toxoid and influenza, is associated with poor pregnancy outcome among RPL patients. The use of IVIg may be accurately categorized as immunosuppressive therapy, although the mechanistic basis for IVIg immunoregulation is poorly understood. Scand J Rheumatol 33: 4.
