5.3       Preclinical Safety Data

 

There is no information on the effect of aciclovir oral formulations or i.v. for infusion on human female fertility. In a study of 20 male patients with normal sperm count, oral aciclovir administered at doses of up to 1g per day for up to six months has been shown to have no clinically significant effect on sperm count, motility or morphology.

 

NON-CLINICAL INFORMATION

     Mutagenicity

The results of a wide range of mutagenicity tests in vitro and in vivo indicate that acyclovir does not is unlikely to pose a genetic risk to man.

 

     Carcinogenicity

Aciclovir was not found to be carcinogenic in long-term studies in the rat and the mouse.

 

     Fertility

Largely reversible adverse effects on spermatogenesis in association with overall toxicity in rats and dogs have been reported only at systemic doses of aciclovir greatly in excess of those employed therapeutically. Two-generation studies in mice did not reveal any effect of (orally administered) aciclovir on fertility.
