Pharmacokinetics Acyclovir properties easily gets through an epithelium of a cornea and creates therapeutic concentration in intraocular liquid. Now there are no methods of definition of acyclovir in blood at its use in the form of oculentum. Acyclovir at external use is defined only in urine, and in insignificant quantity. This concentration has no therapeutic value.
Acyclovir – antiviral (anti-herpetic) means – a synthetic analog of a nucleoside of thymidine.
In the infected cells containing a virus thymidinekinase there is a phosphorylation and transformation in atsiklovirmonofosfat. Under the influence of guanylate cyclase atsiklovirmonofosfat it will be transformed to diphosphate and under the influence of several cellular enzymes – to triphosphate. The sharp selectivity of action and hypotoxicity for the person are caused by lack of necessary enzyme for formation of the atsiklovirtrifosfat in intact cells of a macroorganism.
Acyclovir triphosphate, being built in the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthesized by a virus, blocks reproduction of a virus. The specificity and very high selectivity of action are also caused by its primary accumulation in the cells affected with a herpes virus.
Acyclovir is highly active concerning the Herpes simplex 1 and 2 virus of types, the virus causing chicken pox and shingles (Varicella zoster), Epstein-Burra’s virus (types of concentration (MPK) of acyclovir). It is moderately active concerning a cytomegalovirus (CMV).
In herpes prevents formation of new elements of rash, reduces the probability of skin dissimination and visceral complications, accelerates formation of crusts, reduces pain in sharp the surrounding herpes.
– the herpetic keratitis caused by the Herpes simplex 1 or 2 virus

Use together with immunostimulators enhances effect of acyclovir.
instructions Efficiency of Treatment that will be higher, than earlier it is begun (at the first symptoms of an infection).
