Acyclovir herpes antiviral Zovirax
Acyclovir herpes medication: It is used in the treatment of genital herpes, but also chickenpox and shingles. Acyclovir is available as tablets, capsules, an ointment, a suspension or as an injection. This FDA approved drug is used to treat herpes virus infections such as oral herpes, genital herpes, shingles, herpes simplex, and chicken pox. Zovirax interferes with the activity of enzymes needed for the replication of viral DNA in cells. By preventing the multiplication, the herpes virus cannot multiply as easily. The FDA approved the use of Zovirax in 1984. Another option is valaciclovir.
How Acyclovir Works?
Acyclovir Herpes Antiviral interferes with the enzymes the virus needs for replication of DNA in cells and prevents the virus from multiplying. It is also incorporated into the virus DNA chain which terminates replication. In short we use words like kill, eliminate te describe this process. So antivirals kill viruses or stop viruses from multiplying.
We recently discovered that this antiviral induced through Lectroject is capable of flushing out (waking up) the virus from hiding. Which is actually a good thing because now the medication can kill off the virus. The theory is that by activating the virus, then preventing it from returning to hibernation, it can be completely eradicated. Any OB should be mild and the treatment may even abort the attack.
More recently, Acyclovir herpes antiviral (brand name Zovirax) has been used in combination with AZT, to treat HIV/AIDS patients.
Acyclovir (Zovirax), a guanosine analog that inhibits viral DNA synthesis, is the oldest and most-studied medication. It has poor bioavailability and a short half-life, which necessitates frequent dosing. Valacyclovir (Valtrex), a prodrug that metabolizes to acyclovir, has better bioavailability and requires less frequent dosing than Zovirax. Famciclovir (Famvir) is a purine analog that has high bioavailability.
Effectiveness of Acyclovir Herpes antiviral
Multiple studies of the use of acyclovir for the treatment of herpes have suggested that the nominal efficacy of the topical formulation is the result of inadequate penetration of the drug into the target site of infection, the basal epidermis. Iontoporesis overcomes bioavailability issues.
Acyclovir and Iontophoresis
Lectroject uses "iontophoresis" to enhance tissue penetration of Zovirax 5% topical cream, it enters the body via two electrodes. The cream is placed on the electrodes; the electrodes are applied to the inner wrists or in the case of herpes at the top and bottom of the spine to treat the entire body.
The ultimate solution
Lectroject creates a stream of ions. The stream ions travel along the nerves.Through the apertures in the spine column and into the CSF - The ions carry atoms of medication to travel into deeper cells of the intestines. The ions follow the steam from one electrode to the other through nerve tissue, muscle tissue or mucosal surfaces. The same way as electricity would.
The machine works by phosphorylaing acyclovir to acyclovir diphosphate in the presence of thymidine kinase, it next phospholates acyclovir diphosphate to acyclovir triphosphate in the presence of guanylate kinase which act as a virostatic. In other words it controls viruses. Success rate is 85%.
