Finally they have posted their HSV vaccine on their website. Looks like they're in preclinicals and have also received a grant.

This looks promising, thanks for posting.

Come to the Chat Room, there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

It looks like the grant they are referring to is the $2M they were awarded in 2008... It appears there has not been a lot of movement on this one since 2008. I believe they too are looking for partnering like Antigenics is...

Yes, as well is AiCuris. They are looking for partnering/licensing too, whether or not anyone wants to acknowledge that. None of these are going to get off the ground until a major pharmaceutical company picks them up.

Agreed... but AICURIS has completed phase II and unfortunately Vical (which may be the better treatment, since it may be a 1 time deal) hasn't even made it to Phase I.

We have prominently mentioned Vical and Antigenics (completed Phase I) in newest petition to Congress... asking Congress to provide them with funding to get it over the hurdle...

Let's keep the pressure on our governments to help these companies... If they can find a great treatment/cure, it will bring badly needed jobs to the US.
