Polymerase chain reaction revealed Herpesviridae (Herpes simplex, Cytomegalovirus) in the lens substance in 46 patients operated on for age-related cataract. Thirty-two patients of them had age-related macular degeneration. Herpes simplex was found in 6 (18.8%) of the patients with age-related
Hepatic damage during transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a critical complication in patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Apart from its role in preventing HBV reactivation, there is some evidence for the benefits of preemptive antiviral
For both patients with high-grade gliomas and multiple cerebral metastases, radio(chemo)therapy is the standard therapy. Neurological decline during treatment is rarely attributed to infections of the brain but to tumor progression or side effects of radiotherapy.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a risk factor for acute renal allograft rejection. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of CMV viremia on subclinical rejection (SCR) and interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy (IF/TA) in protocol biopsy at 3 months after transplantation.
Hydroxy and methoxy perylene quinones are synthesized in an attempt to isolate the essential spectroscopic and biological features of light-induced antiviral agents such as hypericin and hypocrellin. Unlike their naturally occurring counterparts, these synthetic quinones bear the carbonyl, hydroxyl,
Nucleoside analogues have been recently introduced in the management of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. They mainly act by inhibition of HBV polymerase activity resulting in decrease of viral replication. They are administered orally, and most of them have an excellent tolerance and
The adverse effects of antiviral drugs are dose dependent and often reversible. The major side effects include influenza-like symptoms, hematologic abnormalities and neuropsychiatric symptoms. The influenza-like syndrome can be prevented by paracetamol taken at the time of the injection. Psychiatric
The effectiveness and safety of direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs) in hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients with renal insufficiency remain controversial. Therefore, this network meta-analysis aims to assess effectiveness and safety of DAAs in populations with different renal function. The pooled data
Substantial progress has been made in the treatment of chronic hepatitis B during the past decade. Nucleos(t)ide analogues are now widely used due to their convenience, less side effects, and considerable response rates. However, development of antiviral resistance is a major problem being
An antiviral protein, RC28, with anti-herpesvirus activity was purified from a PBS extract of Rozites caperata (Cortinarious caperata) by acetone precipitation followed by gel filtration and ion exchange chromatography. The molecular weight of this protein was 28.251kDa as measured by MALDI-TOF mass
The advent of direct-acting antiviral agents promises to change the management of hepatitis C virus infection (HCV) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), a patient group in which the treatment of hepatitis C was historically challenging. We investigated the safety and efficacy
Phosphorothioated oligonucleotides (PS-ONs) have a sequence-independent, broad spectrum antiviral activity as amphipathic polymers (APs) and exhibit potent in vitro antiviral activity against a broad spectrum of herpesviruses: HSV-1, HSV-2, HCMV, VZV, EBV, and HHV-6A/B, and in vivo
Background: Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is frequently detected in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BAL) of mechanically ventilated patients.
Research question: The aim
Infants born prematurely who develop chronic lung disease frequently suffer acute respiratory deteriorations. In a randomized trial, we assessed if treatment of such relapses with the antiviral agent Ribavirin increased the speed of recovery and improved lung function at follow-up. During the acute
Cisplatin is a known nephrotoxic agent requiring vigorous hydration before use. However, aggressive hydration could be life-threatening. Therefore, in cirrhotic patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) under cisplatin-based chemotherapy, the risk of nephrotoxicity increased.
