Purpose:

To evaluate the safety and efficacy of intermittent intravenous (IV) foscarnet in the treatment of acyclovir-resistant herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections in AIDS patients and other immunocompromised patients. To evaluate the necessity, efficacy, and safety of IV maintenance foscarnet therapy in preventing recurrent disease. To confirm the pharmacokinetics of intermittent induction and maintenance IV regimens.

Patients must have AIDS as defined by the CDC, or be patients with other immunocompromised states (transplant patients; other hematologic malignancies with recognized cell-mediated immune deficiency), and have herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection documented by culture and in vitro resistance to acyclovir by standard laboratory susceptibility or suspected resistance to acyclovir after an acyclovir treatment failure in which acyclovir was administered for at least 2 weeks intravenously at doses of 30 mg/kg/day (or a comparative dose adjusted for renal insufficiency). In vitro susceptibility data must be pending in the latter case. - Patients must be able to give informed consent. - Patients < 18 years of age may participate with the consent of parent, guardian, or person with power of attorney, or through the provisions of state laws regarding emancipated minors. - Expected survival of at least 6 months.
