How to Donate to Coridon

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      So the hsv2 did not show up on the blood test, only the hsv 1, I never get cold sores so I would imagine I have been a carrier for a while. I saw two Doctors and both thought it was a yeast infection but the meds did not work so I asked about the blood work and swab culture for herpes. I never had blisters, just painful concave sores and lots of swelling and pain. What is PCR? I think it was a swab culture but I have not seen my lab results yet.  I have been in a relationship for the last  14 weeks, we used condoms at first but stopped awhile ago.  I did have unprotected sex accidentally with someone the week before that so 15 weeks ago. It was casual and I'm not really sure how to even get a hold of him.  So it is possible the exposure could have come from him. My current boyfriend has only had one other sexual partner in the last year. I have no idea where this came from. Thank you for your response. I will deffinitely check out the forums on natural things I can do.

      I wouldn't jump to conclusions but herpes is a posibility. Herpes cannot be positively diagnosed visually. There are othwr condition that produce similar symptoms. Go to the Doctor and have tje blisters swabbws within 48 hrs. If they dry up and you swab you may get a false negative. Take a  blood test in 12 weeks

      Wow, sorry this sounds pretty crappy. I too have been recently seen because of an outbreak. I wouldn't care abo It having this but, my love of my life was gone for 6 months and  now wants me back. What do i do?? Don't know what to say to tell him. Will go on supporessincd therapy.  To be honest. Sounds like he has something anyway. The o.b doesn't have to present. Some may not have an o.b because they have a good immune system. I am proud of you for getting tested to begin with. He may be positive and  may never test for fear of the knowing he has it. The tingling in the face is yes shedding. I get that and then get one on my nose. It sucks. Sorry to hear about your problem with all this. I am here to listen. I am deeply depressed and at a major low but, talking to many here will help.

      Yes they are likely herpes, go see a doctor.

      No, no oral. I kissed him,gave him oral and grinded on his part. The Dr swabbed my cervix, not the sores. I had a bad burning sensation, red area, and then i got red pimple like sores That popped up on the 11th the pain and itch are finally going away. I have been on acyclovir 400 mg 3 times a day since the 11th.  I had my rectal Area a few days ago pop up with a bunch of white pustukes that hurt like hell. He had a cut on his lip which I  now think he was having an outbreak.

      The positive hsv1 blood test means you probably have oral hsv1 from childhood. Do you know what the value was for the blood test for hsv2? The positive swab may mean you recently got infected with hsv2. What kind of swab was it? culture or PCR? What symptoms did you have that was swabbed? Do you have any estimate of when you would have been exposed with the virus? any days when you had a new partner or unprotected sex? You might want to wait at least 12 weeks, ideally 16 weeks (and in rare cases up to 24 weeks) to get another IgG blood test done for confirmation about hsv2. In the meanwhile, if it is definitely hsv2, you're right, valtrex is most effective if taken as soon as symptoms start, no more than a day after symptoms start. Your body will adjust with time and you will likely not need to take it all your life, although that are people who take valtrex daily and do just fine. It all depends on how well your immune system can keep the virus in check. Do you ever get cold sores on your lips? If you don't, inspite of having oral hsv1, your immune system has learnt to keep hsv1 in check, and will eventually learn to do the same for hsv2. There are many natural alternatives, please read through the natural remedies section on this forum, it's a good place to start. No 2 people are same when it comes to natural remedies (or even valtrex for that matter) so you'll need to experiment and see what works best for you. By the way, the fist outbreak is the worst, so it's possible you may not even have another outbreak or may have outbreaks very rarely. The first year is usually the most outbreaks. Good luck, and let us know if you have more questions.
