The effectiveness of adenosine 5'-monophosphate was tested in thirty-six patients with recurrent herpes labialis. The compound displayed an immediate effect upon the healing of the recurrent lesions. Furthermore, twenty-three patients were free of recurrences for varying intervals extending over 2 years. In the remainder of the treated patients, a single recurrent episode was observed.
