I dont know about the everyone else, but I pretty much wait with baited breath for any tidbit from Chimerix, Aicuris or Peregrine. Here's something new about Bavituximab.

Hopefully their presentation goes well the end of this month and we get some positive reviews from the conference, This could be a chance to move this study into a phase 2 trial, for it might lead to a major pharmaceutical company picking them up. Hepatitus and HIV have a relationship to the herpes class of virus's. Once you can cure or vaccinate against Hepatitus C or especially HIV , this will be one step closer to a cure or vaccine for the Herpes Virus.

I listened to Peregrine's talk at some health conference this week. They talked about Bavi and DID mention that Bavi could be used to treat herpes viruses... That's about all they said... so it sounds like they may be looking at it, but like everyone else - they need money. It also looks like the US gvt has pulled back some money on some of their other research programs as well...

Well we have to stick together and keep pushing these people. It's ridiculous that we don't have a cure yet.

I wish we could convince them to do the hsv study in conjunction with another. Most of their candidates probably have hsv-1, anyway. And their hiv candidates likely have hsv-2, at least a healthy percentage.

they really dont even have to do an actual study. If any of the participants have a history of diagnosed hsv a simple antibody test would tell if it cured or not.

      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.
