    hopeful great post, great questions... our ONLY mission... is to get it to market... to help therapeutically those we can... and eventually eradicate the virus completely through preventative use. I have been following this virus and all the developments for quite some time... nothing happens over night as i imagine you know... (you seem very well informed) Yes we know of AURx and their mexico trial... that vaccine was way too attenuated... the concept was the same... but YOU still have to get the attenuation right... the concept of live vaccines is NOT new... it is in fact.. THE BEST WAY to defeat viruses... smallpox, polio, MMR, chickenpox... THIS IS THE WAY TO DO IT... all the other subunit approaches will NOT work... HOWEVER... getting the right attenuation... the "goldilock zone" as DR. Halford calls it. is very very very hard to achieve... weak enough not to cause disease... strong enough to elicit the proper immune response.... and all the minute details in between... THIS IS THE HARD PART... it is in fact... a very exact science... Dr Halford spent the better part of 20 years... getting to this point... the perfect RATIONALLY ENGINEERED, PERFECTLY ATTENUATED VACCINE... so... anyone can try a live approach... AURx tried... but the patent RVx holds... is for the special mutant vaccine strain that DR HALFORD created. hope that helps... HOPEFUL... not MAYBE... DEFINITELY... WE WILL KEEP PUSHING, UNTIL ALL HAVE ACCESS TO THIS TREATMENT

    We should be grateful for anything that should happen with Theravax. If they make it in April, great. If it's June, who the hell are we to get impatient? I for one, think you some of you guys are letting this disease get the best of you... (judging by the prior comment threads that were counterproductive to say the least) We are living in a year where there is a PROMISING HERPES VACCINE ABOUT TO BE RELEASED! Do you know how many people have suffered through the 80s and 90s and 2000s with this awful disease and had no one or no promising drugs except for some BS supressant drug that only made Pharma companies filthy rich? But here we are in 2017 arguing over non sense, and have lost sight of the goal. We are in this TOGETHER! I, for one, will be grateful for anything that happens, and whenever it happens. Keep it up RVX!

    This is what I find frustrating about some in the HSV community. HSV sufferers have hit the equivalent of a lottery jackpot and they don't even realize it. Theravax could so easily not exist. It would only take Halford or Agustis to decide it's all too hard, all too unappreciated, and we'd be again left in the desert for another 30 years with a Valtrex prescription. For some, Theravax will be the difference between a fulfilling life and suicide. It's astounding how dismissive some people are because it "only" suppresses the virus, and you'll "still" have to disclose. I understand the pain and frustration of having HSV but in this time of draconian FDA laws, and so few resources in HSV research, Theravax is a miracle. If there is ever a sterilizing cure (it's feasible), Theravax will be what made life bearable and even enjoyable until it becomes available. For that I'm infinitely grateful, and so should you be.

    Once every few weeks I can't control my curiosity and take a peek here in "Theravax-Village". It is always the same. This is by far the most boring, annoying thread ever. And it goes on and on and on an on and on. Nagnagnagnagnag. Reminds me of a couple of old aunts with prickly moustaches. So I'm off again. See you in May. Maybe. Have fun guys....

    Chance... i hear you, we all hear you, we want to bring this home, we want to get you to the point, where you don't have to disclose at all... because the vaccine is available at your local walgreens and we have proven in trials that shedding is reduced to insignificant levels. We are working for that, it will take time. We don't control that. So what we are doing in the meantime... IS thinking of current generations, specifically the ones that suffer with constant pain, and can find no relief... the ones with uncontrolled symptoms... they need it, now. Our company mission, in the long run, is complete eradication... as we work toward that, it would be irresponsible not to help those that have no other way of coping with the pain. Lets not loose sight of that. we are doing both... making it available to extreme cases, and working for a near future for people like you.

    I completely agree. This is something that every person in human history prior to the last 30 years had to purely just deal with without any recourse. In the age of virtual reality phones and 70 inch flat screen TV's in many peoples homes the best medicine available is something that reduces shedding and symptoms marginally, and for some does very little. There is potential to reduce symptoms significantly further for some right around the corner be it April. May or June. I think it's totally understandable to be skeptical about efficacy and results when they aren't published. But if the rumored cost of compassionate use is true, then it's not like these people are trying to fraud people out of money if the cost of the trips alone would greatly exceed any money exchanged. So unless Bill Halford and Agustin are secretly part of the St Kitts travel board and merely trying to get people to pony up for expensive flights out to a small island, I fail to see how they would otherwise benefit from compassionate use if it wasn't exactly what they intend it for.

    Dear friends As part of the rational vaccine team I want to encourage everyone to not loose hope we have seen close range how good this vaccine is and how the life of the patients improve tremendously after the shots it depends of all of you to continue fighting so more can get this, Dr Halford has worked most of his life in this for the health of others. I'm a certified physician and could corroborated that is safe and has a great effect in the immune system of the patient. Keep it up guys

    so there's two things going on, getting conflated. there is a signup for trials. thats planned for Q4. u can do it here: http://rationalvaccines.com/trials in addition there are impending Compassionate Sales. Dr.Hanley should start taking on new patients soon. just keep watching this thread and forum or the official sites for news about when and how to contact Dr.Hanley to signup for that.

We would love nothing more than to do this at home, for our citizens, insurance covered and really affordable... until then... we cant just sit by and watch people suffer, knowing we can help them, legally.

    Wow, this sites always good for a bit of late night entertainment. Every thread seems to get highjacked with the same old arguments For me personally, shedding info is ultimately what will be the determining factor as to whether it's worth me taking a risk & getting this vaccine. Shedding tests haven't been done yet & I don't believe we'll find out any shedding data for many years to come. For those of us with mild / no symptoms I don't see any benefit of taking this vaccine without the presence of shedding data (just my opinion, don't shoot me lol). I offer total support to Halford & his project, I hope that the people with chronic pain can get the relief they need from it now, but i don't believe it offers any help for me at this point. The only thing to do is live life as positively as possible, fight the negative thoughts & people that come along, and maintain the belief that one day I'll be shed free!! God bless you all, now back to the bickering

    Trial and potential vaccine sale information Click on the link below for the full article Rational Vaccines: A case study in pharma deregulation. As the debate picks up steam in Washington, Rational Vaccines is fast-tracking its live attenuated vaccine for the herpes simplex virus (HSV) to the market — wherever that may be. Enrollment will soon begin for trials in Mexico and the Caribbean, following a single Phase 1 study of 20 patients in the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis. “Mexico has about a four-to-five year window for sales if the trials go as we think they’ll go,” Fernandez said in a recent phone interview. “We’re doing trials in the Caribbean as well and we’ve been approved for sale in a couple of jurisdictions in the Caribbean.” The move is less about rebelling against the FDA and more about getting to patients as soon as possible, Fernandez said. The U.S. won’t be ignored, but it’s a much longer path-to-market. http://medcitynews.com/2017/03/rational-vaccines-pharma-deregulation/

I have a lot of patience for the people who have to deal with HSV, i know its nerve racking... but you are making it hard for me to do my job. I know you are suffering. I am sorry for this, i truly am... so what I AM doing is working as hard and as fast as I can to make it available to as many people as possible as soon as i can... IF we at RVX spend all our time answering your same question, three times a day... it makes it harder to do the work we need to do, so that this can be made available to the people who need it. Please... try and understand that you are being selfish... and not helping anyone, not even yourself... there is no ulterior motive here, no rush for a money grab, nothing un-explained... these things take time... we are trying... when we can... we will tell you... if we can't we will tell you that too... you asking "are we there yet?" won't make the car go faster.

    Interview with my friend and CEO @Agustin Fernandez

    Hello dear patients, sorry that my English writing skills had get the best of some of you, and yes Richard is me nice to see you! If that term can be applied. I do understand why some of you are so angry, frustrated and sensitive,it's difficult to deal with this virus and on top of that you all have to pretend to have a normal life. As if I am a certified physician I am and been practicing medicine for 9 years now. And the reason why I don't step up to defend RVX is because when you know for a fact that your vaccine works and have seen such amazing results you let the facts talk by itself. I don't explain how the vaccine works because this is a support/light information channel. Therefore you deserve to be fully informed about the mechanism how the attenuated virus works with your immune system to create the antibodies that you need to face the virus, I recommend you read more extensively about it in the articles that Dr Halford has published over he pst 10 years. I'm here to help and dissipated any doubts the patients may have. But you can be certain that my oth not to harm is up to date. And please I know we have different opinions and different feelings but this place it's to help let's keep it in the love vibe please. If any questions anyone can ask me and I will be happy to answer.

    Yeah, OFMDH you are undermining decades of work and diminishing people's hopes by your words. Why don't you take a break for a while. Let people try the vaccine if they want. It didn't work for you. Okay? We are sorry, man. You are only one example. You chose to do the trial. The next phase will have 200 participants...We will know more then. Halford is a very smart guy. He is going to use these trials to make it better and more effecient for millions of sufferers around the globe. He is extremely dedicated and so is Augustin and the RVX team. We owe them nothing but gratitude. You are exuding the exact opposite. Please stop coming onto this thread and bringing your negativity. I think I speak for most here. You are not only adding insult to injury but you are kicking everyone, who is already in a vulnerable state, down further. Just food for thought.

    Agustin from Rational Vaccines - Here to help if i can.

    Agustin...first thanks for your efforts to potentially deal with this really dreadful disease. Stated, while there can be and often is a lot of emotional stress related to this virus, I am even more referencing the truly physical problems that happen and are so clearly misunderstood by most...even those portraying themselves as medical experts. "Oh, that is not how herpes manifests itself." Well, I have news for a lot of people. What I want to know is really what are you after with this company? Are you actually going to try to bring your technology to the market? Another dimly lit alley to bring those who really help down would not be wise for anyone. People really with this problem are very fragile and have felt for a long time, left out in the cold. The sad truth is nobody wants to discuss this for fear of being an outcast and there is no good help anywhere. A robust and reliable and also affordable therapeutic vaccine is needed and needed NOW, like TODAY! Not sure how long you have been associated with this problem or the other alternatives that have come up and then disappeared over the years? And, I do not mean this in a negative way at all. Almost 17 years ago now there was another company with potentially similar technology, live attenuated vaccine, that never made it to the market yet their technology worked fantastically for those who were lucky enough to receive it in a Phase I trial. The company was Aurx. All stated, how is your technology different than theirs and how do you plan to proceed to truly get your product to the market? This stuff was never a joke and is most definitely not a joke today. What is a joke is the fact that there could be technologies out there that could have been helping people for years and it is not available. THAT is the joke and let me tell you...it is a sad sad joke. Your response is appreciated.

As well as others who have taken a chance and invested in what so far seems to be a solid product. I also give props to Augustin for actually caring and giving a crap about so many people infected, who he doesn't even know. I know he doesn't do it for good karma but that is what is coming to him. Also prayers to the good doctor, no matter the end result of the trial is. The doctor is living life to the fullest and doing passionate work that he truly wants to do. That's what true heart is about.

    the last vax post i made seems like ages ago, (it was only monday) and it has all been but ignored by the negative nancies. https://honeycomb.click/topic/68477-theravax/?do=findComment&comment=409267 i won't repeat what i said there, no need to. the idea that RVx is not concerned with shedding is an insulting absurdity, not worthy of any serious minded consideration, as it is so preposterous on its face. but i do want to add to my last post, to address something else: Theravax is extremely likely to reduce shedding. it might even eliminate it to levels where transmission would not be possible. why do i think that? well for one, OBs are themselves obvious shedding, and it is known that the vax reduces and in many cases even eliminates OBs. the effect seems to get stronger over time, as the body settles in to the vax, after the last shot. so thats one reason, less to no OBs is itself a sign of less shedding. another reason is that so far, the vax has been very effective for those suffering from nerve pain, which is likely due to HSV activity (replication). if the virions are intercepted, and the nerve pathways aren't travelled and the inflammation doesn't occur, this could be why neuralgia sufferers get relief and again would indicate less shedding. Halford has himself speculated a 10 to 100 fold reduction. Genocea meanwhile, acts like 2x for Gen3 is a big deal. please. i also saw an animal study, maybe from 2015 or in a patent, i forget, where when a transfusion was done, the mouse was healthy again, no shedding. and its just common sense. if u shed a certain amount with no treatment, its b/c thats the amount ur infection and immune system have come to a balance on. if the vax helps improve the immune response, that means less shedding, the balance of power now is in your favor. yes, studies absolutely need to be done, using dozens if not hundreds of people, to get actual verified statistically significant numbers to prove this one way or another. but it is NOT going to happen any quicker, b/c people here whine about it. it will happen in due course at the proper time, and WAY before anyone else does anything even close to approaching these kinds of results.

    News? As a participant.... What people don't know is that my OBs radically changed from getting the vaccine. Before it was large blisters, which became lesions. Now its tiny "micro-lesions" of 2-3mm without any blisters beforehand. All of this happened between the series of shots. I have before and after photos. As I'm not having blisters anymore, just tiny lesion marks - my immune system must be controlling it a lot better. After the uptick of OBs in October I went on Valtrex around early November -. When you're in a trial and know you're in the unknown its disconcerting when things don't go the way you hoped. I also had a sudden onset of sciatica that I attributed to the vaccine wearing off. At the time it felt like I was more in a fearful panic - and to top it off I have debilitating pain. That pain is still here with me today, I have to lie on my back for relief as it hurts to sit and stand up. Later it was determined I don't have herpetic neuralgia, it's actually something called piriformis syndrome from prolonged sitting (I've worked 16 hours days without so much as walking 100 yards). As for Valtrex I have since stopped using it about 2 weeks ago. Before the vaccine I only used Valtrex once, after that I only had a pink rash around 25-30 days later and then another 30-35 days until blisters and lesions (my OB calendar had 64 days between lesional OBs). This time, about a week later on 2/24th I had one micro-lesion OB (small pit/cut in the skin) for one day with some pinkish/reddish areas scattered around it that show up when I take a picture with a flash. Maybe more later, time will tell. Shedding? When I stretch my skin I can see red/pinkish discoloration that was maybe 2+ times a month before the vaccine even though I may not be having an OB. For me this was probably indicative of a shedding episode as it didn't become a full blown OB. Since stopping Valtrex this only appeared the same day as the single micro-lesion. Time will tell if this comes back as well. Overall while I posted about getting worse in December I have mentioned in the forums my immune system could have been resetting so to speak. During that transition time I could have been moving up and then down to a lower level than what was my normal - I don't know. However no one cares to know that or that right now I merely have micro-lesion(s).

    It really frustrates me that people think you only want a cure so you can have "unprotected" sex without disclosing. When I received the virus I was on a long term committed relationship and my ex decided to step out and bring this back home. My life changed in the blink of an eye. No I don't want the vaccine so I can go out and have sex with ever guy I meet and not have to disclose but I want my life back. If I do meet the right guy, I don't want to scare him off by saying hey I have herpes but there's this guy in St. Kitts that have a vaccine but it's not regulated by the FDA, and insurance doesn't cover so everything will be out of pocket, and I really like you! I'm not taking a semester out of school so I can work two jobs so I come up with $2500 plus hotel accommodation and travel expenses so I can have freely "unprotected" sex. So again no I don't want to just go out screwing around but I would loke a vaccine that protects me. We"re so focused on the future generations but forgetting about the current ones.

    The sample size here is 2 people from what I can see. One thinks the vaccine a godsend, the other thinks its a disaster. Both have massive problems with each other. How the hell can we draw an educated conclusion from any of this. We don't know shit yet. Just sit tight and let Halford work. Let time bring more accurate information, and let it be from the SOURCE. This could still likely be an incredible thing for sufferers of HSV. Don't freak out over a bickering contest on a message forum

I'm just sick to death of the conflicting reports, and the fact that all we have is message forums usernames as sources. Fuck it, I'm over it.

    I haven't really done a super thorough read of this thread- but from what I've seen it looks like you guys are arguing about unknowns- A reminder: It is unknown what the shedding rates are for the current theravax vaccine as of now. They have not been tested. Period. Nothing to argue or speculate about just yet. Also I think y'all are forgetting about Profavax- the immunity vaccine- if it turns out to completely work in humans (which is also currently an unknown) shedding wont really matter too much any more anyways if you have a partner who is willing to get the prophylactic vaccine. I know y'all are excited but I think patience is needed right now.

    Unfortunately some people dont seem to understand is that those of us who are in support of the vaccine are in no way downplaying the importance or impact of minimising shedding and tranmission risk. It just cant be measured at this stage of the vaccines release, and that whilst everyone here wants to be cured 'whatever you may interpret that as'. The reality is that the vaccine is not being released at this stage for that purpose. It is being released for acute herpetic outbreaks. Not shedding reduction. And that theravax has had amazing results in helping people suffering from that @Rational Vaxxer included. So, yes shedding is hugely important, we all agree. But because the studies on theravax' ability to curb shedding can't be measured (yet). No'one can get the vax and have that piece of mind. Dissapointing, frustrating.. yes. But, the early release is not aimed for those who are asymptomatic or those concerned with (only) shedding. Which funnily enough i will admit to being myself. Whilst the pschological toll can be heavy, not being able to determine shedding reduction at this stage means that the vax will not help you. Nor is it intended for you in the compassionate release this month. On a more positive note, it can be assumed that for aymptomatic people, that if theravax has been so efficacious on acute sufferers. It could be deduced that it has the ability to significantly impede shedding. However, that will only be known years down the line. I hope you all find peace, those of us who are asymptomatic will just have to heal or tend to our emotional pain whilst waiting for a cure for shedding. This can be done without a vax. We will be all be cured, some sooner rather than later. A bit of perspective. First live vaccine for HSV ever. Available to the public. March 2017 (hopefully if not delayed). Might get delayed, but so fucking what. People are working hard to make it happen. Those who say that there were lies about its release. To me, i don't believe thats the case. Maybe a bit premature, maybe not authorised by halford himself, but haters seem to cling to that it wasnt halford to discredit something which obviously is very much going to happen very soon. Its sad but, when things starts gaining traction, they will want to be at the front of the cue. Just stinks of entitlement to me. The way theravax is being released and for who at this juncture in its development is just pragmatic and realistic. At this moment in time it would be unrealistic to assume or expect anymore. Be greatful, be optimistic be patient. Negativity and nihilism does not help. It just kills hope. Hope is what moves people forward.

Understand that those who feel hungry want food for NOW, not tomorrow, same thing who feels pain does not want to chat, or a cure or vaccine. What's more, it does not matter.

    Welcome to the cure board! Here is a little bit of information to get you started on this board and on HSV treatment and cure research that is going on. The Wikipedia page Herpes simplex research is a good place to see an overview of what research is underway. As with all Wikipedia pages, be cautious of what you read unless you are provided with a citation with a verifiable source. Just because you read it on a website doesn't mean that it's true. Information on vaccines can be found here (with more detail here) and a history of where vaccines come from can be found here. Information on how CRISPR/Cas9 works can be found here. Priteliver, an antiviral candidate, is also under investigation (and orally here). When reading information regarding research, it's important to have healthy skepticism. That doesn't mean everything you read is necessarily true or false, but there are claims out there that are not backed up by science. This is a good page to read regarding what is science and what is not. Don't be afraid to use the search function in the top right corner. Chances are that information about a topic has already been posted. This can help you learn from conversations already had or find even more links about a particular topic. If posting a new thread, try to follow these suggestions: look for existing threads on that topic: take a look down the page and use the search function to see if your topic (or article) has already been posted. If so, it's preferable to post in the same thread so you and others can benefit from information that has already been shared. put in a descriptive title: "Cool article on herpes" is not a title that helps potential readers really define what your post is about. Compare this to "Recent Interview from CEO of Gene Editing Inc on HSV" is much more helpful to potential readers. Think to yourself, "does this title give readers an idea of my post, before they click on it?" to help guide you. use tags: tags are like key search terms that help those searching find what they are looking for. For example, if a recent research article was posted by Dr. Drew at Washington University regarding a new DNA vaccine, you could use the following tags: drew, washington university, DNA vaccine. If you have any ideas or recommendations for this sticky, please let me or another moderator know

    I hope you are right, and there is some magic pill waiting just around the corner that makes it all go away. i dont know of it. and unless that pill can eradicate the virus from the earth completely... unless you have something like DR Halfords vaccine that can confer immunity... during your "normal" sex life... you would still be at risk of contracting the virus... all over again. a vaccine, a preventative vaccine is the best answer. Dr Halford has found it, and by the way, YES... it also works as a therapeutic... and it will help lots of people that really need that therapy...

    I think what Dr Halford has written here is right in line with what i have been posting. It IS NOT valtrex by a long shot... It works a lot better at helping people control the symptoms of the virus. But Dr. Halford is right. you will always carry the virus, like people do with chicken pox. There are people who suffer from nerve pain and outbreaks even when on antivirals... for them its a game changer... i have also seen many people achieve remission with this treatment... while being off of antivirals, which have their own set of side effects. Here is what i have written and it goes perfectly in line with what you are quoting from Dr Halford. IF you can control your symptoms with antivirals... then dont jump on the compassionate use sales. If you want to have unprotected sex without disclosing.. this is not for you. I think with more studies, we will be able to claim what i have witnessed. This is an immuno therapy treatment that combats the herpes virus better than anything on the market. it can reduce and even eliminate symptoms. Also, because it is a vaccine, it will in the future stop the spread of the virus through inoculations... and also stop the stigma of transmission, since the vaccinated parties wont have to worry about infection. Does that not give you hope?
