Brief Title  ICMJE Efficacy and Safety Study of ME-609 and Acyclovir for Treatment of Herpes Simplex Labialis
Official Title  ICMJE A Randomized, Double-Blind, Active Controlled, Vehicle-Controlled, Subject Initiated Study Comparing Efficacy and Safety of ME-609 Versus Acyclovir Cream for Treatment of Recurrent Herpes Simplex Labialis
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to determine whether ME-609 is more efficient than acyclovir and placebo for the treatment of recurrent herpes labialis.
Detailed Description This was a randomized, double-blind, active- and vehicle-controlled study comparing the effects of ME-609, acyclovir in ME-609 vehicle, and vehicle alone. Treatment was subject-initiated within 1 hour of experiencing the first signs or symptoms of a herpes recurrence. The subject visited a study clinic as soon as possible after treatment initiation, but no later than midnight of the following day, for evaluation.
