AIDS Vaccine Is 'Scientific Breakthrough',what about herpes?

Recommended Posts

Cure Coming Soon
Risk of infection cut by 31 percent in Thai trial of 16,000 volunteers

Hope this news can lead to our confidence of modern science for virus research including herpes!

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.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.

      @WilsoInAusi wish you were right.  you can't say that with such confidence having never met me though.  I had one MD look at my sore on Sunday @ 8pm, said it was not looking herpetic but to come back in the morning.  I came back in the morning and he said it looked exactly like a cold sore/HSV1 based on the changes / "ablative look" to the skin around the lip.  The Dermatologists have never seen me with a sore until yesterday, too, and had only seen pictures.  They're used to the classic HSV2 look that shows up in Google Images. I think the swab test will be definitive - we broke open the sore and sent it off within  48 hours of appearing.  I'm also waiting for my 13 week IGG type specific HerpeSelect Immunoblot any day now using RequestATest - LabCorp.

      Not really wanting to call Terry.  I'll be checking the term anecdotal as I agree it may not be the best term. Maryland University seems to disagree and there was a researcher looking into random transmissions off poss objects in the eighties.

      There are two cases of torts in the USA in regards to transmission from surfaces. These require a 50% probability in causation and would be medically confirmed. I would say the reason it is less documented as people just deal with it and get on with their lives or it happens more frequently in lower socio economic groups that all just go into denial.

      I'm collecting the less than usual experiences Wilson, and not all professionals agree with Terry. These myths in my experience do not always get around with no basis.

      The thread was more about antibodies any ways and I was just mostly sharing my experience of reading  those who claim a neg IgG. I am sorry I veered from that here.

      One person I have read here claim neg IgG. And years ago there were two people who also claimed neg IgG.

      It is up to each person to do their own research before they spend money on products.
