Genocea--new therapeutic vaccine to be looking out for?

Recommended Posts

I just came across this:

http://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/genocea-pockets-35m-to-progress-preclinical-t-cell-vaccines/81244453/

Anyone have any more info? Sounds promising. Being funded by Johnson and Johnson is pretty big too. Has anyone else heard of this?

Cure Coming Soon

$35M for research is HUGE. Hopefully everything goes as planned.

Again, more encouraging research and funding being done!! I've only recently been diagnosed with H, but it seems like the

general interest and research being done about HSV is at an all time high. Very, very heartening to know that experts are

hard at work! Also good to know that OUR donations to Dr. Bloom and Dr. Cullen have made a signficant impact. Keep up

the support for their work, and keep shining in 2011!

yup, this one is pre-clinical, so isnt even in phase 1 trials yet. BUT 35 millions bucks is a LOT of money, and MIT scientists are SMART, so they may get a good move on this. I really hope something happens in the next 5 years while I'm still in my 20's!!!!

If we want something to happen sooner, we HAVE to make noise. I've already signed the petitions, have you? This is the difference between 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, or 20. You have to make noise! I'm going to send letters to Oprah, my senators, etc. this weekend as well!

Visionsblue, thanks for your passion... I agree NOISE! The only thing I might add is that if people can help post the petitions on various blogs, sites, etc to drive more traffic to them. We have over 1250 emails in 6 weeks. It would be great if we could boast 10,000 emails by June. Now, that would be some NOISE!

      Kelly bean yes I had an ulcer in my mouth. I know it' unusual but as soon as he had told me that I got it swabbed and it came back positive. Then I had a blood test and that came back positive as well.   Anon222 Thank you it's just incredibly difficult thing to deal with. Especially being such a new thing to me.  It will change things though. I will never rest easy. I will always be worried about getting another one come up, I will have to pay expenses for preventative measures. I will have to tell everyone that wants to kiss me (not that I go around just kissing people but as this is life long never know how many people that may be) so it will be changing a lotg for me. I will never feel comfortable just kissing someone anymore. I will always be worried about passing it onto them. It changes my whole life. I will never be able to kiss a new born baby (If I ever have another child)  I will not be able to do so many things without stress and worry for the rest of my life:(

      Hey there Chicken, I agree with what helpme said. Really no one cares about OHSV-1. Not to diminish your feelings but I just want you to know that it’s going to be okay. You honestly don’t have to worry about this at all. As he also said you are now in the MAJORITY of people. Please just go on living your normal life this should not change anything at all! Good luck!

      I know blood test doesn't tell location. I know i have it orally since i had it as a child but i dont have any breakouts at all, the last breakout i remember was inside my lips when i was a kid. Like me my friends and my gf we are all asymptomatic orally. im just worried if the above mention symptoms say i have ghsv1?  and about disclosure im happy to tell. im not scared of it im just worried if i got it in the genitals, although all my doctors say im fine.

      I don’t understand this post. You seem highly concerned of having herpes for someone who already tested positive for herpes. Your girlfriend has tested positive for herpes. What more is there to freak out about? Blood tests do not tell you location, are you worried if you break up how you will handle disclosure To someone else? That’s where I’m getting confused.
