On the basis of our results and evidence from a recent study that mycophenolate mofetil potentiates the antiherpetic effects of several compounds, 35 concomitant administration of valacyclovir with mycophenolate mofetil may result in a lower risk of rejection and CMV disease than is seen with either agent alone, compensating for the increased risk of CMV disease associated with treatment with mycophenolate mofetil.
The mechanism of resistance to valacyclovir is similar to that of acyclovir.

In the active form, acyclovir acts specifically to inhibit viral using by acting as a competitive substrate for viral DNA polymerase and as an obligate chain terminator, effectively preventing any further elongation of the viral DNA chain.
Treatment with oral valacyclovir 2 g tid appears to be alternative efficacious as previously reported outcomes with other antiviral treatments, and suggests that this is a valid treatment option for patients with acute retinal necrosis.
