21. Comparative study between combination of famciclovir and prednisolone with prednisolone alone in acute Bell's palsy. (PubMed)

Comparative study between combination of famciclovir and prednisolone with prednisolone alone in acute Bell's palsy. The antiviral drug acyclovir or its analogue, valacyclovir, has been applied in various trials on Bell's palsy with inconsistent results. We compared the therapeutic effect of famciclovir plus prednisolone with prednisolone alone, in patients with Bell's palsy. In a randomized, prospective trial, 68 patients were randomized to treatment with famciclovir and prednisolone (34 (...) to moderate (HBS-II, III, IV) Bell's palsy occurred completely at month 3 and that of severe (HBS-V, VI) Bell's palsy was two-third of the patients. Again in severe Bell's palsy combination treatment increased the chance of complete recovery more than 10-fold than that of steroid only. The study results suggest that better outcome for Bell's palsy patients occurred if they were treated with prednisolone and famciclovir combination instead of prednisolone alone. In fact a considerable number of patients

23. One-day famciclovir vs. placebo in patient-initiated episodic treatment of recurrent genital herpes in immunocompetent Black patients. (PubMed)

One-day famciclovir vs. placebo in patient-initiated episodic treatment of recurrent genital herpes in immunocompetent Black patients. There are no known racial differences in genital herpes disease pathogenesis or response to therapy. Despite high herpes simplex virus (HSV) seroprevalence in Black persons, clinical trials investigating the treatment of recurrent genital herpes (RGH) have typically enrolled a small proportion of Black patients.This multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled (...) study evaluated the efficacy and safety of patient-initiated, 1-day famciclovir 1000 mg twice-daily in immunocompetent Black adults (USA and South Africa) with RGH. Eligible patients were randomized (2:1) to famciclovir or placebo. The primary endpoint was time to healing of non-aborted genital herpes lesions (i.e., lesions that progressed beyond papule stage). Secondary endpoints included proportion of patients with aborted genital herpes lesions, time to resolution of associated symptoms

Oral antiviral therapy should be commenced as early as possible, within 72 hours of rash onset. Treatment is usually given for 7 days in the absence of complications of herpes zoster. Antiviral therapies, such as Acyclovir, Famciclovir and Valacyclovir are used in the acute phase of infection with the main aims of reducing and/or stopping viral replication, which is thought to play a role in relieving pain and shortening duration of symptoms.

36. WHO guidelines for the treatment of Genital Herpes Simplex Virus

. Strong recommendation, moderate quality evidence For adults and adolescents with a first clinical episode of genital HSV infection, the WHO STI guideline suggests a standard dose of aciclovir over valaciclovir or famciclovir. Dosages: • aciclovir 400 mg orally thrice daily for 10 days (standard dose) • aciclovir 200 mg orally five times daily for 10 days • valaciclovir 500 mg orally twice daily for 10 days • famciclovir 250 mg orally thrice daily for 10 days Remarks: Given that follow-up visits may (...) not be possible during the course of treatment and symptoms of the first clinical episode may be prolonged, therapy is provided for 10 days. Although the benefits of the medicines are probably similar, the costs of valaciclovir and famciclovir are higher than aciclovir, and therefore aciclovir is preferred. The choice of medicine may also depend on compliance considerations. This recommendation also applies to people living with HIV, people who are immunocompromised, people with a severe episode and pregnant
