From the search that I did, these news seem to be over a year old.

I wonder

The Duke team is discussing a potential collaboration with Regulus Therapeutics LLC, a joint venture between Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc and Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc that specializes in microRNAs.

Is this still happening? I will have to ask Cullen.

I think the univ. of fl research would be are best bet but unfortunately i think the pharm. companies wont inves till they can find a way to make the drug where you have to keep taking it to suppress the virus.

For ones that dont know their cure would keep the virus dormant and eliminate shedding and complete transfer of the virus.

The investment risks for pharma companies for both U of Florida and Duke universities cure is far less then developing a vaccine. On phase 1 itself, it can accurately be determined if the technologies works, because from phase 1 for testing of safety of the drug usually around 60-80 people infected with the virus are administered with the drug and as a CURE all of them should be outbreak free within a year. Within a year of its trial everyone should know if the drug is successful therefore moving onto phase 2 and 3 when they find the drug to cure the infection. The investment risk here is very low as compared to a vaccine where only during phase 3 trials by comparing to a placebo group one can determine if the vaccine can prevent infection.

As the word goes around, volunteers would even be willing to go through the trials for free thus saving more on clinical expenditure.

I do believe too that a cure for HSV from either duke or u of florida can obtain fast track approval if infact it has been successful during phase 1 trials because of its application in preventing the spread of HIV. The biggest hurdle for the cure will be to bring it into phase 1 and the ones responsible to disperse funds should believe and give these technologies a chance to show the benefits.

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
