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.

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
