Acupuncture in Herpes Zoster Neuralgia (ACUZoster)

Symptoms that herald herpes zoster include pruritus, dysesthesia and pain along the distribution of the involved dermatome. The most distressing symptom is typically pain and the most feared complication is postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), the persistence of pain long after rash healing.

A Comparative Study of FV-100 vs. Valacyclovir for the Prevention of Post-Herpetic Neuralgia

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, active controlled comparative study of the safety and efficacy of 2 dosing regimens of FV-100 versus valacyclovir administered for 7 days in subjects with uncomplicated AHZ(acute herpes zoster). Subjects diagnosed with uncomplicated AHZ within 72 hours of lesion appearance and worst pain of ...

Development of a Bedside Pain Assessment Kit for Postherpetic Neuralgia

We hypothesize: (a) that a Bedside Sensory Testing Kit for PHN can be designed such that it works efficiently with Subjects and Investigators, is tolerated well by Subjects, and is statistically reliable between Investigators; (b) that the sensory testing kit can distinguish between PHN patients with different sensory qualities to ...

Evaluation of Immunogenicity and Safety of VARIVAX Passage Extension 34 (PE34) Process in Children (V210-A03)

This study will evaluate the immunogenicity, safety, and tolerability of VARIVAX (Varicella Virus Vaccine Live) manufactured with a new passage extension (PE34) process compared with the VARIVAX 2016 commercial process. The primary hypotheses being tested are that antibody response rate and mean antibody titer induced at 6 weeks after a ...

Efficacy Trial of a Vaccine to Prevent Herpes Zoster in Adults Over 40 Years of Age

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a herpesvirus that causes two distinct clinical syndromes.Primary infection is manifested as varicella (chickenpox), whereas reactivation of latent VZV results in a localized eruption known as herpes zoster. More than 99.6% of people 40 years of age orolder had evidence of previous VZV infection. This study ...

Optimal Timing of Zoster Vaccine After Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

Due to lack of data on safety of live vaccine in the recipient of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, CIBMTR(Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research) guidelines recommend varicella vaccination only in patients who is at least two years after transplantation and without graft versus host disease and no immunosuppressive ...

Herpes Zoster Vaccine for Bone Marrow Transplant Donors

Infection is a major cause of morbidity and death among haemopoietic stem cell transplantation patients (HSCTs). Beyond the initial post-transplant (BMT) phase of neutropenia, the most common infections are cytomegalovirus (CMV) and fungal infections. Another common infection for which BMT patients are at increased risk is varicella-zoster virus (VZV) (both ...

Safety and Tolerability of Herpes Zoster Vaccine Rheumatologic Patients

Safety and Tolerability of Herpes Zoster Vaccine in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis Immunized prior to biologics and tofacitinib therapy initiation Background The reactivation of varicella zoster virus (VZV) (herpes zoster (HZ)) is of substantial public health concern. Its predilection for the elderly and immunosuppressed make it an important cause of ...
