    Anyone know if Valtrex or Valcyte have any activity against adenoviruses?

    I found an article suggesting Ribavirin or cidofovir but not sure if those are the only options. Obviously cidofovir is tricky being infusion only and Ribavirin is not very common.

    Cycloferon is indicated for adenovirus as well as many other viruses.

    It's for a friend of mine though and unfortunately she does not have my same tolerance for overseas supplements! She'll pretty much only take something from a U.S. pharmacy...good to know though, just in case.

    Is adenovirus one of the enteroviruses or it's own entity?

    It's a different family.
