No Trials

I think it sucks you can't offer yourself to a trial b/c you have to be lucky enough to live in an area where they are taking place..

What about those of us who want to be included ??? Are there any alternative ways to become involved?

You can move, the idea place to live would be Seattle Washington near the UNiversity of Washing Campus, they do many trials there for HSV.

But if you can;t move there are alternatives-

Some trials (rare) will let you do it from home from a distance and send the samples to a nurse or some qualified person to administer it. You can also send a letter to your hospitals and univeristies to see if they are intersted in participating in a trial, make sure you include the contact info(address & phone #) of the place who is giving trials, Genocea for example. You might include a story about yourself and what it means to you and the statistics is always a good thing and its connection to HIV and AIDS. Also include your name address and email address, you might get rejected, but they may be able to point you in the right direction.

Contact your family doctor see if he is interested in conducting a trial or if he knows someone who is. COntact your health department and Emergency health centers. Any place that has to do with health.

It is not impossible, if you work really hard and are willing to put in the effort it is possible or in the very least you will learn alot more than what you know how the health system works and what is needed to possibly make it happen.

But if you sit around waiting for a trial to come to you, then it is very unlikely anything will happen and you will have not learnt nearly as much as you would have being pro-active.

Thanks for your response and positive energy... I will look into these methods.

You cant really blame them. If you dont live close enough to the trial site then they risk you not being able to comply and messing up a million $$$$ trial. But yeah it does suck.

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?
    • Tone123
      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
