There has been at least one major trial looking at HIV disease
progression in patients treated with acyclovir. The results,as I recall,
were positive. since acyclovir has no activity against HIV the effect is
presumed to be due to effects against herpesviruses and implying some
interaction of herpesviruses in AIDS progression. however, I believe that
there may be some difficulties in co-administering antiviral nucleosides
eg. acyclovir or ganciclovir and AZT.
