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?

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.

      I didn't even get a sorry.  The only thing that makes me feel a little better is I made sure he lost his job. Further, sociopaths are found in high levels of politics, CEO's and cops. He was a cop.

      I would say having sex w/o disclosing is sociopathic if he knew.  Doing it with no condom on top is 2x sociopathic. Again.  It does not make him one.  Look up sociopathic behavior.  They dont typically intentionally try to injure.  They have zero regard for other humans.  All about pleasure and manipulate to get what they want.  We all have behaviors that are.     Showing a lack of remorse or shame. The DSM-V entry on antisocial personality disorder indicates thatsociopaths lack remorse, guilt or shame. RED FLAG #5. Staying eerily calm in scary or dangerous situations.

      I do suspect people.  Especially after the last girl arguing that "STI tests" that I would pay for wouldnt catch bacterial stuff.  I told her they test for bacterial STI's, too.  I refused to accept her saying she had nothing and that I would forget about testing.  I respect both myself and her more than to back down, there. I am not desperate and stupid.  I had told her I hadnt had a date in 2 months.  So she prob thought I was.....  Even if I hadnt dated for 5 yrs, I respect myself first.  Anyway.  It wasnt until I completely insisted that she disclosed.  People just know when you are serious.  They arent stupid.

      The most amazing thing just happened! @Chip Clark re-tweeted all of these tweets (https://twitter.com/TheChipClark).  I have never seen an CEO so involved in helping a community like this.  He really wants change for us and wants to see the HSV community get better treatments.  Today is a great opportunity for all of us to make a big impact.  I don't mean to spam anyone, but I want people to see this! A lot of people know other people with the disease.  There's a lot of support out there.   @crisper @GlitterDx @Norwegian123 @dont quit!17 @Sean123 @OhFuckMyDickHurts @Whyyyyy @SD777 @MoniqueLow @jreemi @eva13 @EyeOpener @Untouchable1 @Constant Diplomat @jpg @silverdream @LiveLife100 @LucyLevi @Elle22 @HC-Support-Team @LillianPanos @Ajuda @Malcolm @Mackie82 @Atrapasueños @JJ2017 @Rational Vaxxer @RVX Patient and Investor @Theblues @Smart_1 Please post here and get the attention of other users with the "@" sign with their username on HC so they can see what we are doing and how they can contribute!   We may have had differences in our views on some things, but we can all get on board for this!

      How would less people get HSV with better education? Certainly I remember sex-ed very well and was told that the majority of people have oral HSV-1 and that it doesn't cause symptoms in 80% of people, even if transmitted to the genitals. To the teenagers this is taught to, the reaction is either that of disbelief (and fear or such = "I don't want to get it!") or it would be a complete disregard for HSV-1 as a concern as it's to prevalent & insignificant to worry about ("I probably have it..or will get it. I want to kiss boys/girls and I want oral sex."). In this way education poorly characterizes the disease, but it certainly should be eliminating the stigma more than it is.. The stigma exists because a) it's gross and b) it's unfamiliar (no one really hears about, or talk about HSV.). Stigmas are very very hard to eradicate..The only way to eradicate the HSV stigma would be to follow Ella Dawson's lead and keep putting real people behind HSV!  Coming out of sex-ed class, HIV, Hep-C and HSV-2 were really the only viruses to fear. HPV, EBV, CMV and HSV-1 where basically communicated as viruses we'd all get...

      Thank you. He knew he had it and didn't disclose. Did he intentionally try to infect me. I'm not sure. Did he convince me how clean he was and how he always always uses condoms so that I would agree not to use one. I believe he did. Does this make him a sociopath?  To me. Yes. Am I stupid because I believe what he said to me. Yes. But I never went through life thinking what people tell me are lies. I believe them unless they show me differently. At the end of the day this guy was a pathological liar. Why did this happen to me?  Why was he put in my path in life?  I wonder every day. It's been over a year and I'm waiting for a cure to come.
