Aciclovir Pellets

(Product under development)
Aciclovir PelletsAciclovir (INN) or acyclovir (USAN, former BAN), chemical nameacycloguanosine, abbreviated as ACV, is a guanosine analogue antiviral drug, marketed under trade names such as Cyclovir, Herpex, Acivir, Acivirax(Mash-Premier), Zovirax, and Zovir(GSK). One of the most commonly used antiviral drugs, it is primarily used for the treatment ofherpes simplex virus infections, as well as in the treatment of varicella zoster (chickenpox) andherpes zoster (shingles).

Aciclovir was seen as the start of a new era in antiviral therapy, as it is extremely selective and low in cytotoxicity. It was co-discovered by Howard Schaffer following his work with Robert Vince, S. Bittner and S. Gurwara on the adenosine analog - Acycloadenosine which showed promising anti-viral activity. Later, Schaffer joined Burroghs-Wellcome and continued the development of Aciclovir with Pharmacologist Gertrude B. Elion.

Elion was awarded the 1988Nobel Prize in Medicine, partly for the development of aciclovir. Dr. Richard Whitley, a University of Alabama at Birmingham researcher and pioneer in antiviral therapy, was the first to successfully use the drug in humans.
