Herpes virus resistant to acyclovir

Herpes virus resistant to acyclovir, then the medication of choice is penciclovir!


Penciclovir, is a potent and selective inhibitor of many human herpes-viruses. Studies show that Penciclovir triphosphate is more stable than acyclovir triphosphate in HSV-infected cells. Also the levels of penciclovir triphosphate in infected cells are much higher than the levels of acyclovir triphosphate, resulting in an intracellular half-life that is between 10- and 20-fold longer.
