Treatment of smallpox

Smallpox vaccination within three days of exposure will prevent, or significantly lessen, the severity of smallpox symptoms. Vaccination four to seven days after exposure may modify the severity of the disease. Treatment of smallpox is primarily supportive, such as wound care and infection control, fluid therapy, and possible ventilator assistance. No drug is currently approved for the treatment of smallpox. However, studies suggest that the antiviral drug cidofovir might be useful as a therapeutic agent.
