Possible progress in herpes treatment

Recommended Posts

JBnATL

I just saw an article on line about a homegrown breakthrough that could change the treatment of herpes. It says it is 99.99% effective.

Sounds interesting. Great that they have investment too.

Yeah -- I'd love to know where their $11M in funding (announced at the end of the video) came from...looks like there quite a few irons in the HSV novel treatment fire! :-) UF, LSU, UTMC, Duke, Harvard, Starpharma, Astellas...not to mention many other leading research programs like the ones at UW. Let's hope that one day, we have a plethora of new treatments to choose from...or perhaps even a cure!

Great link JBnATL!! I could be wrong, but I think that's the first news media coverage that I've seen regarding the fight against Herpes.

That clip put a smile on my face. Because now, it'll make the other Universities; (UF, LSU, UTMC, Duke, Harvard, Starpharma and Astellas) want to get to the fininsh line first. So hopefully we will see a more powerful drug on the market soon...

I want a pill

A topical after an outbreak is not going to help my nerve pain or itchiness with no sores!

Promising News

Im excited. Hopefully it will help with genital herpes as well. A breakthrough none-the-less. I'm in health care. This makes me want to be a microbiologist or a researcher. We need a cure SOON!!!

It's definitely a step forward...I wonder how effective it would be for people who's sores dont actually break the skin?

so the product would be a more effective version of abreva? Well, better than nothing.

That's kind of what I'm thinking. It's easy to kill the herpes virus, eradicating it completely from your system is a whole other story.

just saw this...$11M grant?? I guess progress in any form is good but I am of the opinion the $11M could have done more good at UF, Duke, Harvard etc...closer to stop the problem than treat the problem.

      Hello.... hope this message finds you well... Pay attention to your diet , there's a young lady on YouTube called Laureen HD... follow her sh is awsome...  Doctors never told me about diet part of it... so peanuts and other junk food I love had me experiencing minor outbreaks which take forever to heal , I'm not on suppression med which I decided just to do... makes no sense to take 12 natural pills when u can take 1. ..  watch your coffee,  sugar and nuts intake ( no pun intended) The after care remedies are good.

      Yes. I have had good experience with CBD oil over the past few months. Here is my "routine". When I notice the first signs of an outbreak, pop the blisters with a tissue, then apply 1 drop of 10% CBD oil rubbing it into the popped blisters for ten seconds or so. Then apply another drop twice a day (morning and evening) for as many days as needed.

      Healing shows progress even overnight. Usually the redness is gone within 1 or 2 days, and the blisters are tiny holes (hard to even see) within 2 to 3 days. Totally healed within 2 to 4 days.

      This has been the fastest healing of the many other approaches I have tried over the years.

      Ben 21 yaşındayım ve 7 ay önce herpes ile enfekte oldum. sevgilimden enfekte Herpes ağzında vardı, ama iyileşmişti ve bir oral seks yapmıştı. Bu enfekte. İkimizin de bir şoku vardı. Bu şekilde enfekte olduğunu bilmiyorduk. İlişkiye 7 ay geçti, ama cinsel organları bulaşmadı. Sürekli üzülüyorum ve bir saldırı geçiriyorum. Her gün ağlarım. hayatım mahvolmuş .. artık yaşamak istemiyorum. Bu gençlerle yıllarca nasıl yaşayacağımı bilmiyorum. Sadece ölmek ve ondan kurtulmak istiyorum Çok üzgünüm ve şanssızım .. Yazım hataları için üzgünüm çünkü bu bir antropoloji değil
