How to Donate to Coridon

15 posts in this topic

I exchanged emails with Coridon's CEO. They accept and, of course, welcome donations. They are NOT US tax deductible and can be made by reading his email below. If you send a check, I'd be sure to write in the memo field HSV-2 vaccine...

Email:

Thank you for your email. Coridon is working on a therapeutic HSV-2 vaccine. We intend to enter into clinical trials in early 2012.

We always need additional funding and try to source grants in the main. We can accept donations, but we are not a registered charity for tax purposes.

My details are below and you can go on the website if you want further information.

Regards, Neil

Notnott,

Is this a cure for people already infected?

Dr Frazier is working on a therapeutic HSV-2 vaccine. That means that the vaccine is intended to work on individuals already infected with the herpes virus. Will it cure herpes, as in eradicating the virus from the sacral ganglion [or spine]? I don't know. Time will tell. We'll have to wait to see what the results show during clinical trials.

And what are (sic) clinical trials?

Dear [Rational Response]

Thank you for your email. We intend to enter clinical trials in early 2012 with our HSV-2 DNA vaccine.

Our technology can be used as a preventative or therapeutic vaccine. Our pre-clinical studies have focussed on prevention.

The first trial will be in Australia. Vaccines typically take between 10-15 years to get to market. We have no idea if any of the regulatory agencies will agree to fast track, but this would only apply to a therapeutic vaccine.

Confused where were you told this would be a cure?

When ppl say cure it means completely healthy with no virus left is that what you meand and were told or is it a suppression drug?

All I have is what I posted... I did confirm what r r said in that work to date is preventative.

Any news on Acambis?

In my opinion "CURE" means 0% chance of transmission. I don't think 99% of the people really care if the virus is still present in their bodies as long as there is no chance of transmitting the virus to another individual.

The most realistic chance of success come from a robust immune response that can attack the virus as soon as it leaves the nerve cell prior to engaging in replication in the epithelial cells.

The current vaccines that are being made for therapeutic purposes follow this approach. With this therapeutic approach I guess there is the chance that this virus over time can get depleted from the body.

Jay that is a very good theory that I believe in and many other do as well, With most people the initial outrbreak is the worse and it tends to lesson over time, research suggests that by taking strong doses of anti-virals in the beggining lessons the severity and frequency of the virus in the future. Now Coridon's vaccine although to be a pre-infection vaccine, which is the next best thing to a cure in my opinion, if they required everyone to take it in schools like hpv vaccine, then I would be satisfied especially if it works in all age groups. And this is what they may have meant by cure, your actually cured before infection. I do not think and hope that is not the total case with their drug.

Now we can almost certainly conclude it has some theurapeutic value, and therefore might get it anyways even if your already infected, to maybe put your hsv virus into permanant dormancy or close to it, I will be curious to see what the results of there animal studies were especially if they performed both prophylactic & theurapeutic studies in their animal models.

Thanks wwdamron,

Let's keep our fingers crossed that Coridon's vaccine is successful with respect to therapeutic properties in humans.

We won't know for a while. Here is the CEO's response...

> Our optimisation technology makes the vaccine useful as both a preventative and therapeutic for HSV-2. Having said that, the initial clinical studies will be focussed on prevention.

>

> Thanks for your interest in Coridon.

OF COURSE I ASKED WHEN THEY WOULD STUDY THERAPEUTIC AND TO DATE, NO RESPONSE.

      They keep telling me they can't disclose anything with me and to contact the physician that did the swab and he's basically untraceable because he travels rob different offices. The only thing I have is information about the test on this online portal but it says nothing beneficial. No results or anything. Just "wrong test code used" and that I received a culture

      I do the drops. I am used to it now

      I wonder why this topical med is for lip lesions only and not for the skin in the "under wear region."  Skin is skin, right?
    • LillianPanos
      Get copies of your swab report and the blood report.  retest blood at 16 weeks.   I undersstand why u went to urgeNt care
    • Hester
      I bought some drops the other day to try. I tried a couple drops under my tongue!  Nasty stuff!  Washing down with water helps but I still hate it. Are you doing drops or capsules?  I wonder if it really helps?
    • Hester
      The response of your previous doctors is infuriating. So glad you took the initiative to look for more adequate health care!  Best wishes for your continued recovery. Sounds like you're in good hands now!

      I had unprotected sex including oral sex with my sometime boyfriend last January.  About 10 days later, I became very ill with a severe painful burning mouth.  Other symptoms quickly followed which included oral thrush (yeast), chills/fevers, inability to eat, difficulty swallowing, feeling extremely ill, weight loss, constant nausea, coughing, etc.  These symptoms lasted for months and months.   I was seen initially at an urgent care center in Florida.  They diagnosed me with oral thrush and treated with the usual stuff (nystatin swish and swallow, lozenges and oral Diflucan).  Nothing worked, and the medical people there would not believe that I had esophageal candida when I told them it was in my esophagus and I was still very ill.  All they said was, you cannot have that, do not have that, etc.   When I came back to Michigan March 31, I thought my doctors here would be able to diagnose and take care of this.  However, that did not occur.  They all basically said the same thing as the medical people in Florida and I continued to be ill.  I finally had to schedule an endoscopy with my gastroenterologist to get diagnosed.  I got diagnosed in early June with esophageal candida.  No surprise to me.   I was subsequently put on an oral anti fungal solution.  I felt that what was underlying my condition had something to do with HSV 1.  I sought out a diagnosis for that.  I was tested, but after testing, I was told I tested positive for having had the virus at some time, but had no active infection.  After just under 3 weeks, I was symptom free for about 11 days.  Then, the candida recurred.  I was put back on the oral solution the middle of July.  I thought that because I had this that things with my medical team would move along more quickly, since before this, no one seemed to be concerned that I was so ill.  Again, that did not happen.  Basically, the doctors just passed the buck and I got no better.  I finally fired all of my medical team and secured the help of a new internist and a new infectious disease physician with his help.  This took a number of weeks to get this accomplished.  I saw my new infectious disease physician on August 18th and was diagnosed a week later with a severe HSV 1 extended reaction.  I was put on the antiviral, Valtrex, and was told to continue on the anti fungal.  I am not sure how long it will take to get over this, but I think I read it could be a year.  However, the candida would never have cleared up if I had not had suppressive antiviral therapy or the reaction had not abated.  You are probably asking how we know this is a first exposure reaction to HSV 1.  Well, no one would be this sick unless this was a 1st exposure reaction.

      After two long and stressful weeks, my blood work came back negative. I've been crying since I found out. I was so scared that I would be positive and have to confront my ex/assaulter. I can move on with my life. Thank you to everyone who has supported me on here: Lisajd, LucyLevi, and JBnATL . It means so much! I can't thank you  enough.
