Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total number of HZ cases reported in the study area, overall and within a specific age-group and gender. The following age-groups will be considered: 60-69, 70-79 and ≥ 80 years of age. [ Time Frame: Approximately 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of HZ-associated PHN pain, persisting between 90 and 270 days after the initial visit for this study. [ Time Frame: Day 90 - Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of HZ-associated hospitalisations. [ Time Frame: Day 0 - Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of HZ-associated any pain, persisting between 0 and 270 days after the initial visit for this study. [ Time Frame: Day 0 - Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Anamnestic information, clinical parameters and complications related to HZ. [ Time Frame: Day 0 - Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Direct medical, direct non-medical and indirect costs related to HZ. [ Time Frame: Day 0 - Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life (QoL) assessment in HZ subjects. [ Time Frame: Day 0 - Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Direct medical, direct non-medical and indirect costs related to PHN. [ Time Frame: Day 90 - Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • QoL assessment in PHN subjects. [ Time Frame: Day 90 - Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Impact of the following factors on the development of PHN: - age, - gender, - concomitant disease, - current immunosuppressive therapy, - HZ severity at first consultation, - timing of initiation of treatment with antiviral agent etc. [ Time Frame: Day 0 - Day 270 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
