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.

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
