It sounds like they're motoring along, trying to milk this drug for everything it's worth, and I say go, go, go! Yes, herpes simplex is referred to in this press release.

Cure Coming Soon

This is what I like to read.

Peregrine and its collaborators have already secured over $60 million in research funding to evaluate the

potential of the company's PS-targeting platform in a wide range of viral

infections, and Peregrine researchers believe there is significant potential

for additional applications of the technology in other infectious diseases.

Y'know, it does refer to them looking into "topical" preventatives for stds. However, bavituximab is a drug, not a topical. It was designed for cancers and some viruses, and we're hoping that it will be effective against herpes. Theoretically, it should be, but who knows....they are not doing clinical trials for herpes, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be prescribed for it, and/or that they won't do clinical trials for it later.

They are doing clinical trials for cmv, which is another virus in the herpes family.

I just thought it was a postive sign that they've appointed a special virus group. They're trying to maximize the drug's potential, so they're going after anything that will bring them money, which is good for us.

In some ways, this drug is the best bet for us. It's broad-spectrum, so it has a lot of support. Also, a lot of times the cure for something turns out to be a combination of different drugs, adn perhaps this will be one of them. For example, I would think this would be an excellent complement to Dr. Cullen's work. (He refers to using acylovir, but if bavituximab actually works as it's supposed to, it would be much better.)

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      I hooked up with a girl yesterday and I lightly kissed her on the lips four or five times - these were not heavy deep kisses.  As she was leaving I noticed that she had a cold sore that was healing (scabbed) on the top part of her lip. My lips definitely made contact with the scab. I’ve never had a cold sore and my last std test was negative for everything . Any chance I don’t end up with HSV1 on my mouth now after this incident? I know it’s not the end of the world but everything I read says these sores are crazy contagious and primary outbreaks in adults can be brutal. Any insight is greatly appreciated

      From what I understand shedding studies are expensive but even getting quotes and estimates on this especially in a clinical setting would be a step in the right direction. @destroyhsv, maybe you can look up labcorp or quest diagnostics and call for an estimate or any local labs in your area.

      Hello everyone, Long story short - I had my first outbreak about a year ago, got swabbed and turned out positive to HSV-2. For the first month, I only took valaciclovir when I had an outbreak but seeing that I still had back to back outbreaks, the doctor decided to put me on suppressive therapy. This has never really helped, unfortunately. In the summer, I had no outbreaks for like one and half month but apart from that, I've been having outbreaks every other week. I saw a dermatologist about two weeks ago and he swabbed another lesion that was in my mouth, which in turn revealed positive to HSV-1, although I was on valtrex at that time. He seemed very surprised and said that not responding to valaciclovir is something extremely rare... But reading testimonies here, it doesn't seem to be as rare as people think. The last two~three weeks have been the worst for me: my outbreaks won't stop and it seems to be getting worst and worst. 2 days ago, my doctor put me on the non-generic valaciclovir  just to see if I responded better to the "real" drug but this has not helped so far.  I'm a healthy adult, I eat well, get plenty of sleep (I even take naps ) and exercise 4 to 5 days a week. I supplement daily with organic acerola vitamin C (1000mg), lysine (1 to 2g) and magnesium (500 mg to 1g) and take 1 x 500mg valtrex in the morning and evening.  I'd like to hear stories of people who managed to stop or at least reduce their recurrences and what worked for them. I really need help because that is killing my sexual life, and I'm not even 30. I've read a lot of studies on the internet about people developing resistance to ACV and the likes but none of them mentions an alternative solution for people like me. Actually, I'm not even sure I have developed resistance to ACV because the drug never really worked for me. Moreover, the very few acknowledged ACV resistant cases were in majority immunocompromised patients and as far as I know, this is not my case. I wouldn't really care about that virus if I had only one or two outbreaks a year, but having it non-stop is very hard to handle psychologically. I can't have sex, drink, eat chocolate... Even read that exercising too much could trigger outbreaks. What's left for me to do? Shave my head, go to Bhutan, live with the monks and meditate 12 hours a day?

      I'd participate and pay for it if you figure out how to do a shedding study. I don't think anything other than a shedding study makes sense.

      HSV-2 is only required to be disclosed in some states of the US if and only if you know or could have been reasonably expected to know you have it. There are no laws surrounding HSV-1 disclosure or transmission.
