Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total number of HZ cases as recorded per participating practice, overall and within a specific age group and gender. [ Time Frame: up to one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of PHN, i.e. persistence of HZ-related pain. [ Time Frame: 90, 180, and 270 days after onset of HZ. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Anamnestic information, clinical parameters and complications related to HZ. [ Time Frame: Between Day 0 and Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Direct medical, direct non-medical and indirect costs related to HZ. [ Time Frame: Between Day 0 and Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pain assessment in HZ subjects. [ Time Frame: At Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life assessment in HZ subjects [ Time Frame: Day 15, Day 30, Day 60 and Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Direct medical, direct non-medical and indirect costs related to PHN. [ Time Frame: At Day 90, Day 180 and Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pain assessment in PHN subjects. [ Time Frame: At Day 90, Day 180 and Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life assessment in PHN subjects. [ Time Frame: At Day 90, Day 180 and Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
