Hi...

I've been following this site for the last year and feel that it is the most reputable. I've been dealing with this shitty disease for 22 years. Caught it from my second girlfriend who lied to me... She said that she had been tested and it was negative. Right... From 1995 - 1998, I went through lots of therapy with the San Diego clinic which helped minimize it to a nuisance for 12 years, but last year it manifested itself in a new and much worse way. SD Clinic is no longer unfortunately. :| So...I've been looking for solutions. I did some research and found some very positive progress being made by a Professor at Southern Illinois School of Medicine. The professor who has made the break throughs with animals only is Dr. William Halford, Ph.D. Associate Professor.

Last night I wrote the editor of the article "Herpes Disarmed" and low and behold Dr. William Halford responded...personally. Universities are not bound by corporate directives and are more free to think and do outside the box. The problem is that they lack funding. That's where I think everyone on this site could make a difference! Below is the note from William.

Dear Docket,

Thank you for your kind e-mail. The HSV-2 vaccine work is still moving forward in animal models, but human clinical trials are still a ways off on the horizon so there is nothing I can offer people at the moment in terms of an FDA-approved vaccine that is actively being tested in clinical trials.

If you or anyone you know wish to donate to help support my research efforts, and amount would be appreciated and the information for prospective donors may be found near the bottom of the following webpage: http://herpesvaccineresearch.com/

Thanks again for your e-mail.

Sincerely yours,

Bill Halford

Here's the link to the article:

Solution: If everyone on this site were to contribute $100 (cost of a nice dinner out), it would probably help tremendously. In addition, he would have a pool of candidates for human clinical trials when he gets to that point. If we all wait around for the next person to do it, we could be waiting for a long time...

This is a bit of an interesting read, though again, doesn't look like anything in the short term.

This puts a specific number on what would be required in terms of financial support. They are guesstimating over a million dollars...

If I ever win the lottery, this will be the first place I donate money to.
