I think this is the perfect time to flood the White House with emails regarding herpes vaccine and cure research. Obama wants to decrease health care expenses and cost, find a cure and vaccine for herpes.

amazing news but the HSV-2 vaccine developed by GSK cuts risk by 40% or something for seronegative women, so they are about on par.

really this is great news.

I wonder what the chances of a vaccine that would stop outbreaks and shredding really are. Anyone a doctor or know a doctors opinion on that?

Vaccinating HIV is more important.

I agree. But 31%??? Hopefully, this vaccine, when fully developed and made available, some of the properties of it can be applied to a herpes virus, for men and women. I heart scientists.

to me the numbers smell like co-incidence coz their so small.

imagine how hard it would be to date with hiv!

even 31% is an amazing breakthrough imagine what it could do for some countries in sub-saharan african where HIV has wiped out an entire generation of people and access to drugs is poor.

Maybe I'm retarded, but I'm figuring that you're still running a 69% risk of catching HIV.No bueno.

thats even if the numbers are not co-incidence. which in such small numbers looks most likely like complete co-incidence and getting percentages out of small numbers like that is stupid without investigating further. it still could be just doing nothing at all.

plus the virus is constantly adapting so it will eventually outsmart vaccinnes. i hope it does lead the way for an effective vaccinne or cure though.

there is so much evil in this world

The numbers would not be coincidence as the article clearly states it was a randomized placebo-controlled trial. If the trial was uncontrolled you may have a point.

thats def a step in the right direction, first off the actual odds of catching HIV are pretty low except in some communities and parts of the world. In the gay community any drop in infection rates could make a huge impact especially amongst discordant couples. In africa it could cause enormous impacts. The article points out what they appear to have accomplished was something many scientists claimed was not even possible.

      That is what I thought too

      @hopeful22 Sorry, just to save me a bunch of reading and possibly getting nowhere..and I'm not sure I'm asking correctly.. Is cas12a in the casY category?  Is there some list showing each useful enzyme and which category it's in?

      @Hairpeesthere is absolutely nothing inaccurate in what I have said and I stand by EVERY word. There is not one ounce of fact or accuracy in any of your comments. I’m sorry for your misinterpretations, but their yours alone. I suggest you need to undertake considerable research before commenting further. Please lift yourself.

      I was going to post something about this but I figure this should help people understand before this thread goes haywire.  CAS12A remember cas12a  Instead of CRISPR cas9 crispr cas12a is a more precise and deemed more safe.  In the past couple weeks CRISPR has had a lot of bad publicity over new research, but last week it was discovered that another enzyme CAS12A is very precise and safe.  I am guessing that Excisionbio is going to switch gears and start using CAS12A instead of cas9.  please see the article published last week.  https://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/crispr-cas12a-more-precise-than-crispr-cas9/81256099

      bad UI design. but I agree. they probably consider HSV-1 and HSV-2 comparable enough and will do each with a different CAS to see what works better.. and then likely do another study with whichever wins the comparison...
