How to Donate to Coridon

15 posts in this topic

I exchanged emails with Coridon's CEO. They accept and, of course, welcome donations. They are NOT US tax deductible and can be made by reading his email below. If you send a check, I'd be sure to write in the memo field HSV-2 vaccine...

Email:

Thank you for your email. Coridon is working on a therapeutic HSV-2 vaccine. We intend to enter into clinical trials in early 2012.

We always need additional funding and try to source grants in the main. We can accept donations, but we are not a registered charity for tax purposes.

My details are below and you can go on the website if you want further information.

Regards, Neil

Notnott,

Is this a cure for people already infected?

Dr Frazier is working on a therapeutic HSV-2 vaccine. That means that the vaccine is intended to work on individuals already infected with the herpes virus. Will it cure herpes, as in eradicating the virus from the sacral ganglion [or spine]? I don't know. Time will tell. We'll have to wait to see what the results show during clinical trials.

And what are (sic) clinical trials?

Dear [Rational Response]

Thank you for your email. We intend to enter clinical trials in early 2012 with our HSV-2 DNA vaccine.

Our technology can be used as a preventative or therapeutic vaccine. Our pre-clinical studies have focussed on prevention.

The first trial will be in Australia. Vaccines typically take between 10-15 years to get to market. We have no idea if any of the regulatory agencies will agree to fast track, but this would only apply to a therapeutic vaccine.

Confused where were you told this would be a cure?

When ppl say cure it means completely healthy with no virus left is that what you meand and were told or is it a suppression drug?

All I have is what I posted... I did confirm what r r said in that work to date is preventative.

Any news on Acambis?

In my opinion "CURE" means 0% chance of transmission. I don't think 99% of the people really care if the virus is still present in their bodies as long as there is no chance of transmitting the virus to another individual.

The most realistic chance of success come from a robust immune response that can attack the virus as soon as it leaves the nerve cell prior to engaging in replication in the epithelial cells.

The current vaccines that are being made for therapeutic purposes follow this approach. With this therapeutic approach I guess there is the chance that this virus over time can get depleted from the body.

Jay that is a very good theory that I believe in and many other do as well, With most people the initial outrbreak is the worse and it tends to lesson over time, research suggests that by taking strong doses of anti-virals in the beggining lessons the severity and frequency of the virus in the future. Now Coridon's vaccine although to be a pre-infection vaccine, which is the next best thing to a cure in my opinion, if they required everyone to take it in schools like hpv vaccine, then I would be satisfied especially if it works in all age groups. And this is what they may have meant by cure, your actually cured before infection. I do not think and hope that is not the total case with their drug.

Now we can almost certainly conclude it has some theurapeutic value, and therefore might get it anyways even if your already infected, to maybe put your hsv virus into permanant dormancy or close to it, I will be curious to see what the results of there animal studies were especially if they performed both prophylactic & theurapeutic studies in their animal models.

Thanks wwdamron,

Let's keep our fingers crossed that Coridon's vaccine is successful with respect to therapeutic properties in humans.

We won't know for a while. Here is the CEO's response...

> Our optimisation technology makes the vaccine useful as both a preventative and therapeutic for HSV-2. Having said that, the initial clinical studies will be focussed on prevention.

>

> Thanks for your interest in Coridon.

OF COURSE I ASKED WHEN THEY WOULD STUDY THERAPEUTIC AND TO DATE, NO RESPONSE.

      Which test to believe?
      or just get a western blot for hsv1, since that's the one that's in such strong question here.

      Sorry I'm still figuring this site out. I did have mono as a kid.. but  my boyfriend ( who's fairly new) went down on me then a few days later had a sore on his lip and asked if I ever got cold sores.. I don't so I told him no he said he use to get them when he was a kid. I didn't think about it at the time .. a couple weeks later started getting these sores. They are extremely painful  , I feel like I have the flue.. it started with just and has spread to several ..

      Hi there, I saw you in chat earlier and tried to chat with you. Herpes won't cause pain in your rib cage.  So please believe that you probably don't have it. Why do you think you have this virus?  Did you have sex with someone you now regret? Have you ever had mono, chicken pox or a cold sore?  If so you already had herpes.  This is just a very common, mostly harmless virus.   Please don't believe you have herpes until you test positive for it. JB
