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.)

      But you were probably also exposed to HSV-1,2,3,4,5,6ab,7,8. There are also about 80 other human viruses and you would have been exposed to a dozen of those. There are tens of different bacteria that also transmit during sexual activity. There are also hundreds of possible  causes generated with your body.

      The sad part is I was exposed to HSV 2 so judging by what information Im told, If I had herpes mine would almost definitely show up on an IGG test by now.  Supposedly I’d have less than an 8% chance of it not showing up on a blood test. All I can do is go off the information Im given.   My thing is this: I need to know what is causing this.  If the medical world wants to tell me that I dont have herpes, fine.  What is it that I have then? And how do I get rid of it? Otherwise, being negative for herpes means nothing to me.  Because Im still positive for something, and they cant even figure out what the hell it is! Because my body definitely changed after I was exposed to it.

      That’s incorrect for recent infections where it nears 100%. Those people have a positive swab.

      Herpes is not some default magic rabbit that comes out of the hat and makes sense out of the irrational.

      @RainyDay2 i am about to pull out the big bht guns. Hey if i can get rid of the symptoms forever and never blow positive, ill take it. My other thought was hpv but i know i was exposed. The last clinician i saw definitely thought my lip things looked herpetic and sajd she's seen urethral herpes before too.    Igg can be forever negative in some, i have heard hsv1 has less accuracy with igg
