NanoViricides

Recommended Posts

NanoViricides looks like a totally different approach where it binds onto the virus particle and keeps it from attaching to the human cell.

Question: Can anyone shed some light on this?

Also I fount an interesting site that seems to be dedicated to NanoViricides:

Thanks for posting. This reminded me of something I read a couple of years ago.

Here is a link to an article about a group at LSU who were using nanoviricides to attack HSV:

Has anyone heard any updates about this group?

Your welcome, thanks for the link. I wonder what LSU has done with that $11.1 million they have received and if it has furthered along their research. I am hoping this could get into a phase 1 trial sometime. This seems to be some good research going on here even though the latest news is from 2009. Did it fail? Or are they still working with it? I would love an answer if anyone knows.

I also noticed some drugs off to the side which may be beneficial for herpes , they are intended for people living in austrailia. looks like austrailia may be moving ahead in anti-viral and vaccines in some aspects than the USA.

No new approach here

The NNVC approach seems to be doing a few low-level tests, then getting stock newsletters to pump the company. I've seen that approach before. Ends with a lot of people out money.

I tried to contact Ken Rosenthal of Northeastern Ohio School of Medicine on his HerpeCide Nanoviricides, but apparently he can't give out any information of the technology he is working on. Sorry guys, I tried.

[Rational Response],

I am truly sorry but I cannot share any information with you.

      There’s new treatment available for cmv and shingles but nothing yet for hsv. It’s like a slap in the face!

      Any ladies out there suffered with this? There seems to be little information about it on the net. Thanks in advance.

      Rejection will be there during your whole life. But not because of herpes, also because of how you are, at work, at your private life. It's just a part of life! Just have in mind that if people reject you because of stupid little things like herpes, they are not even worth continuing as a part of your life.  I think the best way of fighting the stigma is to be 100% convinced that there is NO NEED to feel ashamed, bad, disgusting because of herpes. I one day understood some very important thing: I did NOTHING differently than my friends who don't have herpes. I had sex (they did), sometimes with protection (they did), sometimes without (they did). I had ONS (they did), I had long term relationships (they did), I received wonderful and less wonderful oral sex, haha (they did). The only difference is that I got genital herpes from someone who didn't even know. So why exactly should I feel disgusting or bad?  And also: Know the facts. That is the safest way to destroy stigma in my opinion. If someone tells you: "Yuck! Herpes is disgusting!" you can answer: "I don't think that 80 % of the world population are disgusting because they have a virus in their bodies."  I also recommend this video from "Laureen". She has really great videos about herpes!

      Thanks for the comments. Looks like the only think that might have a shot at helping us in the future is the drug Pritlevir then.

      @PeaceNeeded no there is zero relationship between penile spines and HSV-2, no such variant is possible.
