Cullen Returns Today--We are Awaiting Point Score

Recommended Posts

LivingLife77

I thought I would do a new thread so we bring this to the top.

This is the fountain of youth and he has the potential to eradicate HSV in our bodies. I think that because his research has the potential to cure that he may get funding rather than just something that will supress.

Curecomingsoon will fill us in on the updates! Let's pray for a high point score!

Dear (your religious entity)

Please allow Dr. Cullen to get a high point score so he can obtain funding for HSV-1 research. This research will help millions with cold sores in the oral and genital area. Please help all these people that suffer with depression, feelings of social isolation, and pain/discomfort.

What score

Has the best chance? Do you know the ranges of an extremely positive score?

I do not know the ranges. I will ask Dr. Cullen's office to either explain if the score is good or where to view the score rating system.

Grants and Funding: Extramural Programs -

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/ep/FAQScores.html

Priority Scores & summary statements

Q: What is a priority score?

A: After discussing an application, members of the review group privately vote a numerical score. The normalized average of the scores constitutes the priority score. The scoring scale runs from 100 to 500, where 100 is best. Generally speaking, priority scores of 100 to 150 are most likely to be funded; those with scores between 150 and 200 might be funded; those with scores greater than 200 are rarely funded.

Q: If I get a good priority score, will my grant be funded?

A: All grant awards depend on availability of funds, relevance to NLM priorities, and the balance of grants in NLM's grant portfolio. Success rates and other award data are available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/award/award.htm

Q: When can I get my priority score?

A: Priority scores are typically available within a few days after the applications are reviewed. You will be notified by mail or e-mail, or may call your program officer to find out a priority score.

Q: Will I get a written evaluation of my grant application?

A: Approximately 6-8 weeks after your application is reviewed, you will receive a written evaluation of your application called the Summary Statement. The Summary Statement is compiled by NLM’s Scientific Review Administrator. In addition to administrative information, it contains the written critiques prepared by individual reviewers, a resume and summary of the discussion by the entire review group, and recommendations regarding budget and human subject considerations. The principal investigator may ask the program officer to send the Summary Statement via e-mail or fax.

Q: I received a notice from NLM requesting additional information. Does that mean my grant will be funded?

A: No, but it does mean that your application is under consideration for funding. After the study section has met, grant applications whose priority scores fall within the fundable range are sent to the second level of review. If your application is in this group, you will receive a request from NLM's Grants Management staff for the following additional documentation: updated 'other support' for key participants; the status of Institutional Review Board action on your proposal; certification that key personnel have received training in the protection of human subjects. This request for additional information is not an award notice.

Ok

Great. So you need to ask them his exact score so we know what to think based on that good information.

That sucks. :-( I believe they can reapply in March, if that makes anyone feel better. (me, a tiny bit...)

Doesn't make me. That's why I'm gonna try my hardest to get PCAST to touch on HSV research on Oct. 22-23. I'm gonna call the director again probably on the 20th as a reminder. She stated she would discuss it with them on a previous phone convo.

I feel beat down

This was what was giving me hope..

Cullen doesn't get funding

Bloom gets rejected for funding....

all they seem to care about is vaccine which won't help us. Very frustated...I'll probably be taking a break now from the forum and mindless chatter does me no good. Besides Herpes loves when I am angry, frustrated, or depressed.

Did you confirm Dr. Bloom isn't getting any funding of the 26MIL grant?

Don't lose courage,there must be a cure in the furture as the scientist is researching the viurs more deeply.

For example the herpe zoster also belong to herpes familry and it can be stay in nerve,now scientist find a vaccine to prevent it from breakout.

Who do know which way is the really cure? Maybe some potential cure way is developped by some smart scientist.Someday if someone find out it,I will thank for him face to face,no matter where he lives.

      Day 14 No improvements  new blisters keep forming in the same area. Still using Acyclovir 2 x 800mg/day and all the other supps. 
    • viralfrog
      What dosage are you using daily, and how long did it take for you to notice a difference? I didn't see any improvement in 8 days but realise it might have been too short for an experiment.

      WelI I got my results. I got scared because they say consultation needed but I know I have hsv1. So I see it's negative for hsv2. Using the igG bloodtest. It's been about 5 wks since I've felt funny. Again the derm said malluscum and another doc say monders. I'm saying I disturbed the area from being rough for hrs with a condom. My question to the experienced ones is after 5 wks would you think is have some kind of detectable antibodies. Again nothing ever blistered or ulcrred. After sex I remember using antibacterial hand soap down ther in the shower and honestly that's when I burned for a few days lol. That went away and I'm left with a sore raw feel. I have an appointment soon. I want to make sure it's H before they prescribe and operate smh.    Questions.  After 5 weeks never ulcered or pussed, would you think I should have some kind of antibodies fighting it off so it doesn't ulcer? Or I should be having a full ob by now because I have been stressing. Not eating losing sleep and all. What's your intake my friends. Btw the igG test I did specifically says 4 to 6 wks. 6 wks itll above 90% accurate. Elisa herpe select. Is the name of it. I'm 5 wks in from discomfort.

      Had same symptoms . Burning in penis , nerve pain , lower back pain etc  girl I caught it from had positive viral culture on her vagina for genital herpes 8 years prior but tested negative igg prior to us sleeping together so she assumed she didn't have it anymore .  started dating another girl recently who had positive swab for herpes on vagina in 2013 but tests negative for igg for both types of HSV currently . She also assumed she "beat it" and was no longer a carrier . She gets burning nerve pain all over , constant lower back pain , itchiness all over etc  with both women I experienced a burning sensation in fingertips upon touching there vagina , with the second one I knew exactly what was happening and it scared the hell out of me . Now I'm going thru the initial exposure symptoms all over again except they are alittle different . Headache , pressure behind right eye , burning and pinching sensations all over , lower back pain , weakness and fatigue , burning spots on skin, outbreak on chin , cramping etc I had chronic health issues and poor GI function prior to catching HSV so my immune system responds very poorly to these viruses. testing for hsv 2 is very , very inaccurate . And there are multiple strains of hsv 2 . Viruses mutate slightly with each new host as does  the antigen and antibody response . I'm learning the hard way that just because you have hsv 2 doesn't mean you are immune to hsv 2, so if you start dating someone new who has hsv2 you are going to pick up there strain and they will pick up yours . I currently test positive for only hsv 1 and it's been 8 months since I caught type 2.   one word of advice , I would recommend eating a lower histamine diet and avoid highly acidic foods or drinks . They flare the virus for me and others as well. Also keep stress levels down and be sure to get low intensity exercise everyday to balance nervous system. wilson is very, very uneducated when it comes to hsv and the symptoms it can present as well as testing accuracy . You would think he would be clued in after reading how many consistencies in "atypical" symptoms people post about after exposure on this board as well as the the large amount of people who have positive swabs but negative IGG testing or people with classic hsv symptoms but negative blood work results long after initial exposure... so little is known about these viruses and what they do to our bodies , another word of advice is that after initial exposure rate of viral shedding is very high so be very careful around people you live with or come in contact with . This virus spreads like wildfire in people right after initial exposure . It lives on inanimate surfaces and objects for a minimum of 4 hours and up to several days depending on uv light exposure , air temp and humidity and other environmental factors . All it takes is virus to skin contact for transmission , and in someone with poor health or of old age they pick it up much easier and it can cause serious health issues.

      hello I received oral from woman with possible herpes. Could someone here please tell how initial breakout looks on glans of penis ? I noticed a bit of redness on penis head, with what looks like beginning of bumps. I have also noticed one side of my buttocks has muscle pain, but cannot remember doing any exercise or movement to trigger this muscle pain.

      The possible herpes area does not feel pain, but it's only been 3-4 days now. I feel some tingles, but not sure if psychosomatic at this point due to focusing to see if I feel symptoms. There is definite new redness with skin looking slightly differently textured. I will be going to a clinic tonight.  Thanks
