Valganciclovir is indicated to treat AIDs related cytomegaloviral retinitis and cytomegalovirus infection. Valganciclovir hydrochloride is an L-valyl ester prodrug that is a prodrug metabolized by hepatic and intestinal esterases to an active drug ganciclovir, a synthetic analogue of 2'- deoxyguanosine, which prevents replication of human cytomegalovirus. Ganciclovir undergoes further phosphorylation by the action of viral protein kinase and cellular kinases to produce ganciclovir triphosphate which is the one responsible for the virustatic activity of ganciclovir due to its ability to inhibit viral DNA synthesis.
