Famciclovir Oral Pediatric Formulation in Children 1-12 Years of Age With Varicella Zoster Infection
Varicella zoster virus causes chickenpox in children and shingles in adults. Chickenpox is
usually a self-limiting illness characterized by fever and a rash. Serious complications can
include secondary bacterial infections, pneumonia, and encephalitis. Anti-viral treatment is
not a standard of care in immunocompetent children, but is recommended whenever a risk of
complication exists. This study will evaluate the safety and blood levels of a new
formulation of famciclovir in children 1-12 years of age.
