Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to show that a preemptive treatment by ganciclovir (for positive CMV viremia) or aciclovir (for positive HSV oro-pharyngeal PCR) is able to increase the number of ventilator-free days at Day 60.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 480 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Efficacy of a Preemptive Treatment by Ganciclovir or by Aciclovir in ICU Patients Requiring Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation and Presenting a Viral Replication (CMV and/or HSV) - Prospective, Randomized, Double-blinded Multicenter Trial
Study Start Date : March 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 2018
