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?

Nice info.

We are planning to compile all of these researchers on one page at herpescureresearch.org

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.

      Thank you for your help. No, I have never been tested nor have I had an outbreak. I am currently under a tremendous amount of stress so maybe that's what brought on this outbreak.

      You already tested positive via swab culture.........why do you need the ABvic?

      If she gets cold sores, then she has herpes as well. I get that society has differing levels of the need to disclose for HSV1 and 2, but they are the same virus, just different location of preference. So when she told you she had cold sores (HSV1) it would have been a good time for you to disclose that you possibly have herpes (undiagnosed) in the genital region. If indeed you do have HSV2, then yes there is some evidence that an existing HSV1 infection will provide some protection from contracting HSV2. But without proper diagnosis, you are just guessing at which strain you have. It seems like you feel there is a greater obligation on you to disclose your possible herpes because it may be HSV2 than there is to disclose HSV1. But they are both the same virus. And even though society has labelled HSV2 as the bad herpes and HSV1 as the good herpes because of their site of preference, they are both the same thing.

      The more you describe it, the more herpes seems pretty much eliminated as a possibility. You are not describing a herpes lesion at all.

      I've been having itching with a small lump for a month. It does not look like it's pus filled. I don't have no pain,fever. Just the itchy discomfort.  The itching is not intense. At times it itches a lot and other time It doesn't itch. If I scratch I could see a little blood. I when to my gyn and she said that it might be herpes or ezcema. She said that the skin looks like I have scratch a lot. I have seen picture of herpes online and it looks nothing like what I have.  The doctor took swabs fron the lump and also I got a blood test. I'm just waiting for the results.  I've been in a monogamous marriage for over 20 years. the doctor told me that it's possible to have the virus dormant for many years. I was in shock to hear that. Up to now I didn't know nothing about herpes. I would appreciate any input. Thanks

      @finding my way I wouldn't talk about probabilities too much - disclosure is just about honesty so just focus on your experience, how much you love her, and how much you want to protect her. She can do whatever research she wants.. Also, I come from the oral HSV-1 camp (cold sores) and so have a slightly different perspective here...Frankly, as someone with oral HSV-1, genital HSV-1 for me is probably just a matter of time considering I want a relationship with oral sex, kissing and vaginal sex - you can see how genital transmission would be seemingly inevitable. There are a couple of points: 1) Your lady is likewise putting you at risk as you don't have oral hsv. I say this to make it a little more even - not that it's a contest, and not that either of you want to harm the other 2) You have never confirmed that you have HSV-2... You may both have HSV-1...  ABOVE ALL ELSE, love conquers all and you will both be fine.  
    • Lj2099
      Thank You both for your input.

      Great news glad it went well.

      Are you sure that there is no fungal infection going on at the same time too? Aloe vera will help to soothe. Can you get Tea Tree Oil where you are? I haven't used it personally because mine responds to Valtrex very quickly, but a lot of people seem to swear by Tea Tree Oil and it's anti viral properties.
    • Seeker1960
      Hi @Cierra23 I am glad that you are asymptomatic so that you don't have to experience the physical issues of this virus. You may have HSV or it could be just a false low positive. Some people go for the Western Blot to try and sort it out. There is also a test on the horizon called ABVIC that should be out this year that may help you get the determination. Hang in there and dont let this eat at you. You are going to be fine. My best friends wife had HSV2 and never got it being married for several years and unprotected sex.
