Hello all, hope I have sellected the right place to put this.

Here in the UK we have a Herpes Charity that fights our corner and helps its members with valuable and usefull information. Yes I know its not an american site but who cares where the good information comes from so long as its accurate.

There is a membership fee but once you are signed up you will get a large selection of leaflets and regular updates from them.

Unfortuately karl the information that that organisation supply is not all accurate or up-to-date in some areas. I contacted them to ask about this but they refused to change the information.

It a shame as it can mis-lead people and lead to more stigma regarding HSV. There is so much **** on the internet and HSV can be confusing at the best of times.

      Yes, FHC research is all about a full fledged cure (i.e. a sterilization cure). It's not a vaccine. The latent virus is the virus that resides in ganglionic neurons permanently. When the latent virus reactivates (i.e. replicates), it causes shedding, or an actual OB. There are the ganglion along the spine called the Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG).  HSV infection of the DRG, specifically at the base of the spine, causes genital herpes. Then there's the ganglion on the sides of the face/head.  HSV infection of that ganglion causes oral herpes. The FHC work involves transporting a gene editor to the neurons in the ganglion mentioned above. That gene editor cuts the latent viral DNA in two locations, to eliminate it; i.e. a sterilizing cure. A functional cure, for example, would be something like, stopping the latent virus from replicating, but the latent virus would remain in the ganglion neurons. Stopping it from replicating would prevent OBs and shedding. Of course any therapeutic vaccine is also welcome. I mean, if it reduces OBs and shedding by 80%+, that's very helpful, and it gets closer to a functional cure, but not quite.

      I have my hopes on FHC, but a full fledged cure? This virus hibernate in our spine and can lay dormant there for a lifetime as our immune defense can not get there, I have high hopes but will take a functional cure for now ASAP i am tired of this shit.
