AIC316 UPDATE good results with ONE WEEKLY DOSE !!!

    Recommended Posts

    AIC316 was safe and well tolerated at all doses administered and led to a significant reduction of viral shedding in a dose dependent manner. The strongest treatment effect was seen in the 400 mg once weekly and the 75 mg once daily dosing groups. Moreover, AIC316 led to a significant reduction of the amount of HSV found. This highly suppressive effect of AIC316 on viral replication also correlated with a significant clinical benefit: the proportion of days with reported genital lesions was reduced from 13,7 % to 1,1 %; the number of recurrences was substantially reduced as well.

    does that mean cheaper medicine?

    i mean, tablets of 400 mg of aciclovir are damn expensive

    in the results of the new AIC316 it showed goods results with 85mg daily and 400mg weekly

    smaller tablets means cheaper production right?

    Guess we can hope a 2014 super herpes medicine affordable?

    and ONE WEEKLY dose! Thats an upgrade in life quality =)

    OMG I'm praying this makes it! Acyclovir is pretty cheap where I am...20 bucks for 30 400mg tablets without insurance and with my insurance its 12 bucks. I'm asking to be changed to Valtrex (well its generic valcyclovir) but that's expensive on or off ins :(
