Three-dimensional analysis of combination effect of ellagitannins and acyclovir on herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2.

Abstract : The effects of combinations of three nonahydroxyterphenoyl-bearing C-glucosidic ellagitannins (castalagin, vescalagin and grandinin) with acyclovir (ACV) on the replication of type-1 and type-2 herpes simplex viruses in MDBK cells were tested by the focus-forming units reduction test. Ellagitannins included in these combinations possess a high individual antiviral activity: selectivity index of castalagin and vescalagin versus HSV-1 was similar to that of ACV, and relatively lower against HSV-2. The three-dimensional analytical approach of Prichard and Shipman was used to evaluate the impact of drug-drug interactions. The combination effects of ellagitannins with acyclovir were markedly synergistic.
