University Clinical Trials

Recommended Posts


Ya know? It seems to me that if there truly is a cure and it is being withheld from the tax payers, (the Universities I am familiar with are all funded with taxer payer money), this action constitutes high risk health issues including sickness, the risk of contracting HIV and even death.

Someone common to law may figure out a way to hold these Universities funded by OUR money accountable, via a class action lawsuit, should they have constituents wanting to bring the "CURE" out to market expeditiously. The implications of this dreadful virus are profound - the pharmaceuticals are only in it for the profit - I wonder if they can prove pharmaceuticlas are withholding a cure which can save lives, HIV risk and complications from HSV, maybe this is another angle or approach to our frustrations......

luckily there are two reasons why it's extraordinarily unlikely that a cure is being withheld.

1. Patents on the popular suppressive drugs have expired (acyclovir) or are about to expire (valtrex). So drug companies have every reason to be looking for a replacement that would bring that company exclusive profits.

2. It would be impossible to keep a cure for HSV secret since it would amount to one of the most impressive medical discoveries of our age. How could you keep that quiet?

Even if you can't trust human ingenuity and scientific rigor to ensure a cure, when one is found, to be made public, perhaps you can trust in human greed and lust for fame and fortune to ensure the same result: news of a cure will be shouted across the hills when it arrives.

Good points motorcyclemaintainance.

I dont understand why "big pharma's in it for the money" is such a hang up for many people. Of course they are, that should be obvious, after all, pharma companies are businesses, and I think thats the point? I think Pharma does what it does out of logic, not wanting to see people suffer. Althought I agree hsv need more attention than it receives ;)

      ANd eight hours is on a surface...on a towel who knows. The eight hours was a quote off a thread a long time ago of worst case senerio. Obviously it doesnt survive double touching unless its some weird arse almost immediate thing off a shedding site and this is all WORST case scenerio. HSV shouldnt be treated with stigma...but for everyones well being it should be treated as carefully as poss. It is a highly contagious condition and can be difficult to diagnose and GP's will let you walk away thinking you are clear when you are not if you do not do your due diligence.    

      I knew more about it than the specialists at the hospital I was refereed to.

      I have seen your advise on a few threads and to be honest while I am over careful at times you are not careful enough. This can absolutely happen and people should be well aware of the fact to prevent it from happening. I supposedly have good immunity on labs too. You just cant tell who will pick it up. It can live on surfaces for up to eight hours and towels that are wet and warm and that make micro abrasions when rubbed on skin are ways that transmission that can occur. You will often find out more by spending many hours reading on threads than your doctors. SO no it doesn't always just involve a cut on the skin. How do you think people get it else where.

      So please DO NOT swear at me as this is a possibility and this person should careful tick all his bases before ruling it out, cos on the rare case it is I wouldnt want his life totally ruined. Cos if it gets everywhere your life kinda is.

      It's called caring.
