ATC code: D06BB03

In order to be active, aciclovir must be phosphorylated to aciclovir triphosphate.
Only cells infected with herpes virus can carry out this phosphorylation by means of a viral enzyme.
Aciclovir triphosphate selectively inhibits viral DNA polymerase. The sequence of these two selective steps makes it possible to inhibit viral multiplication without interfering with normal cellular metabolism.
Aciclovir does not eradicate latent viruses

There are no data on the effects on the ability to drive and use machines
