Valcyte (valganciclovir) tablets, an improved version of oral Cytovene (ganciclovir)

Roche is now marketing Valcyte (valganciclovir) tablets, an improved version of oral Cytovene (ganciclovir).

Valcyte is absorbed better than Cytovene...then it's metabolized to the active antiviral that's in Cytovene.

Using Valcyte as a prodrug to enhance ganciclovir levels is analogous to using Valtrex (valacyclovir) as a prodrug for acyclovir.
