Adverse experiences occurred at a similar rate in patients on valacyclovir, acyclovir or placebo In all VZV and HSV studies in immunocompetent patients there have been no clinically significant differences between valacyclovir, acyclovir and placebo groups in any clinical chemistry or haematology parameter monitored. In particular, creatinine values have not changed between pre and end of treatment samples and have not differed between treatment groups. Adverse experiences reported by immonocompromised patients in valacyclovir CMV suppression studies (doses given at 2g four times daily) for 3 months to over a year differ from those in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients in the lower dose HSV and VZV studies.

The term is useful in the sense that it measures pain from the patients perspective and, therefore, provides information with regard to the duration of all pain in the population as a whole. A major limitation of ZAP, however, is that it does not provide any information on the duration of PHN simply because most patients do not develop PHN.
