Good luck!

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

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.

      Doesn't this suck. Using protection and still catching this BS. Uggh, my life story!!

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.

      It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me
