yes, I also think it depends on the source of your previous outbreaks?
For me, I got outbreaks on my upper thigh, so when/if my upper thigh is exposed to the sun for an extended period, a rash will start to form.
Noooo its millions.
Yes it travels up neurons and if it enters a neuron cell with your original HSV-2 it will find a full ICP-0.... that could be really bad. I don't know if his stuff is as clean as he thinks it is.
In experiments in humans in the past when a person who already has HSV is injected with HSV amplicons (attenuated virus) their levels go up, but its a fraction compared to someone without HSV.
Maybe, Genocea showed asymptomatic people recognize more antigens than symptomatic people. However, take a look at this as subjects 17, 3, 29, etc. have an immune response which is always in flux. Thus when you get injected with a live attenuated vaccine may determine your response to a live vaccine shot....
Your immune system after infection basically establishes a tolerance to the virus which is hard to move the needle on. I would recommend if you get the Halford shot to accordingly take multiple shots over your reactivation cycle so your body is no doubt recognizing everything it should...
Especially more important for women to do compound movements as women have naturally very low testosterone levels. Compound movements will stimulate and release maximal testosterone which is the building block for building muscle
If Halford could nail a vaccine that works >80%, I would consider that a success. Say for example that his vaccine is that effective for a period of 10 years like the tetanus vaccine then that would be awesome.
A prophylactic with an effective therapeutic would be just right. It has the potential to be super effective due to some of the vaccine going into latency which helps the immune system memory t cells.
His vaccine would inject billions of viruses that would not be able to reach latency (except for a small amount) and teach the immune system to recognize and destroy HSV. In theory this should work. Billions of antibodies and t cells against a few thousand live viruses. Who do you think is going to win?
