I can categorically state that it is not fraudulent , if you read my old posts you will see how I have suffered. This stuff REALLY REALLY WORKS. Try it, it's herbal no side effects and not too expensive . The biggest problem I have now is remembering to take it as I feel normal every day and forget that I ever had an issue. That sounds ridiculous but it is honestly true.

I just think if it was really that effective and life changing, there would be tons of people talking about it, and certainly more than just one. I'm still skeptical. What are the ingredients? What mechanism does it use to stop the infection?

You know what, just throw cold water on it! I really don't care what you think, it has worked for Me, I have shared as I wanted to help others. I have nothing to gain from posting my experience and indeed I have gone from living for this site to not needing it ( I am still so grateful for its existence ) .

I I rarely come on here anymore and that is a positive believe me. For those who are interested its a great product and it has stopped my symptoms that can only be good.

And I'm just stating my opinion, which last I checked was not only acceptable, but also encouraged on this site. If this treatment is legit, why not post the answers to my questions: what's in it and how does that work against herpes?

Just a small update (wow, the last one was back in 2013!)

I did a Google search and discovered that Gene-Eden-VIR had a published paper in the (peer reviewed) journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy back in September 2013. It's entitled "Gene-Eden-VIR Is Antiviral: Results of a Post Marketing Clinical Study"

The link is here:

Note that this is essentially just a supplement of natural ingredients that have no evidence of treating viruses. Any studies are usually undertaken by a mysteriously and deceptively named CBCD.

The FDA has sent these guys a warning regarding their claims and unsubstantiated studies.

That's not true.

I checked, and the FDA warning letter was sent to polyDNA, the company that made Gene-Eden-VIR back in 2011. The warning letter noted that the company was making claims on its website that placed Gene-Eden-VIR in the category of a drug.

Specifically, the warning letter said: "it is unlawful under the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. § 41 et seq., to advertise that a product can prevent, treat, or cure human disease unless you possess competent and reliable scientific evidence, including, when appropriate, well-controlled human clinical studies, substantiating that the claims are true at the time they are made." (1)

In 2013, a well-controlled human clinical study actually WAS conducted, the results were published in a peer reviewed medical journal (this means the study WAS substantiated), and the offending language was removed from the company website.

The study showed that out of those who used Gene-Eden-VIR, "Seventy three percent (30/41) of the

individuals treated with Gene-Eden-VIR reported a decrease in their symptoms. Specifically, they reported a

decrease in the severity of their symptoms (p = 0.006, n =45), a decrease in the duration of their symptoms (p =0.009, n = 34), and a decrease in the frequency of their symptoms (p < 0.001, n = 31)." (2)

People can see both the FDA warning letter and the published study on Gene-Eden-VIR at the following links:

The study has little credibility. People 'reported' a decrease in symptoms. No clinical observations no knowledge of what other measures were taken. You can get the same results by getting fit, eating better, drinking lots of water and managing stress better.

Once again, I'm not sure you are correct, regarding this study on Gene-Eden-VIR's formula.

The study seemed pretty up-front. It said: "This study relies on patient reported outcomes (PROs).

Past studies showed that PROs had a significant role in the development and evaluation of new medicines [27]. According to the FDA, PROs are a valid and valuable source for measuring the efficacy of new drugs. They are reliable enough to warrant an approval of a label claim for a new drug. From the years 1997 to 2002, the FDA approved 23 new drugs based on PRO endpoints only. They include six anti-migraine products (Amerge®, Axert®), several anti-epileptics (Gabitril®, Keppra®), and a variety of other therapy classes (Tamiflu®, Relenza®)." [27]

How can you say that a study that relies on patient reported outcomes has little credibility if the FDA approved over 23 drugs based on people "reporting" symptom decreases?

Basically, the whole FDA is disagreeing with you here.

Here's the reference from the study:

[27] R. J. Willke, L. B. Burke and P. Erickson, “Measuring

Treatment Impact: A Review of Patient-Reported Out-

comes and Other Efficacy Endpoints in Approved Prod-

uct Labels,” Controlled Clinical Trials, Vol. 25, No. 6,

2004, pp. 535-552

This is a total nonsense. There is not one ingredient that has ever been linked to the control of HSV in any way. To the extent that anything is a placebo that assists people to a healthier lifestyle that supports the body's own immune system then this is the secret!

You can achieve exactly the same results with or without a product like this. Some diets need supplements, some don't.

62% of people who recieved a placebo injection "reported" a decrease in lesion duration and severity in a therapeutic vaccine trial just last week http://files.shareholder.com/downloads/AMDA-2GAAWE/203308615x0x830673/9CA9F73F-93C0-4072-93C9-514F2B053D52/GEN-003-002_Top_Line_Results_FINAL.pdf

Patient reported outcomes without clinical measures of disease severity have no place in legitimate HSV research and Gene-Eden-Vir has absolutely no place in discussions of legitimate HSV treatments.

[uSER=59832]@kate20[/uSER], there is a special place in hell reserved for whomever it is with PolyDNA that creates a new account every few months, on a support and information forum, to take advantage of desparate people by generating buzz for snake oil.

What the hell?

What's with the personal attacks here? I'm asking legitimate questions, and I'm reading the material that's out there, and presenting it for discussion. You don't have to be an utter dick.

My original statement stands. What I said was 100% factual. You can't argue with facts. "PROs were the ONLY TYPE OF ENDPOINT used in the FDA-approved label for 23 products." [1] (Emphasis is mine)

It seems to me that it is merely your opinion that "Patient reported outcomes without clinical measures of disease severity have no place in legitimate HSV research."

Who are you to say whether a particular product, whether it's Gene-Eden-VIR, or another product somewhere out there on the market, "has absolutely no place in discussions of legitimate HSV treatments." ???

Again, this seems to be your personal opinion based on...what?

Where is your personal bias coming from? Are you a "drugs only" Western Medicine zombie? A representative of a pharmaceutical company, masquerading as a legitimate forum member suffering from HSV?

Or?

Accusations can go both ways my dear little friends. So why not play nice?

Yes I agree, no need for personal attacks.

I can report that farting at a full moon on all fours shortly after it rises has reduced my outbreaks by an amazing 62.1784%!!! Hence no need for any supplement apart from a couple of magic beans from a Heinz can. I am sure multiple people will support me in this, so it must be true, and being on the net means it will be published although admittedly, it isn't always a controlled trial, let me assure you!!!

You DO know what peer review is, right? And you do know what controls in clinical studies are, right?

The studies I read about were conducted using a "pre-treatment concurrent control and an historical control."

The FDA guidance lists five types of controls for both pre marketing and post marketing studies: 1) Placebo Concurrent Control, 2) Pre-treatment Concurrent Control, 3) Dose-response Concurrent Control, 4) Active (Positive) Concurrent Control, 5) External Control (Including His- torical Control). The External Control “can be a group of patients treated at an earlier time (historical control)” (1)

So you can see, that this is much more than simply farting at a full moon and then reporting your perceptions about how you felt. ;)

      I wouldn't jump to conclusions but herpes is a posibility. Herpes cannot be positively diagnosed visually. There are othwr condition that produce similar symptoms. Go to the Doctor and have tje blisters swabbws within 48 hrs. If they dry up and you swab you may get a false negative. Take a  blood test in 12 weeks

      Wow, sorry this sounds pretty crappy. I too have been recently seen because of an outbreak. I wouldn't care abo It having this but, my love of my life was gone for 6 months and  now wants me back. What do i do?? Don't know what to say to tell him. Will go on supporessincd therapy.  To be honest. Sounds like he has something anyway. The o.b doesn't have to present. Some may not have an o.b because they have a good immune system. I am proud of you for getting tested to begin with. He may be positive and  may never test for fear of the knowing he has it. The tingling in the face is yes shedding. I get that and then get one on my nose. It sucks. Sorry to hear about your problem with all this. I am here to listen. I am deeply depressed and at a major low but, talking to many here will help.

      Yes they are likely herpes, go see a doctor.

      No, no oral. I kissed him,gave him oral and grinded on his part. The Dr swabbed my cervix, not the sores. I had a bad burning sensation, red area, and then i got red pimple like sores That popped up on the 11th the pain and itch are finally going away. I have been on acyclovir 400 mg 3 times a day since the 11th.  I had my rectal Area a few days ago pop up with a bunch of white pustukes that hurt like hell. He had a cut on his lip which I  now think he was having an outbreak.

      The positive hsv1 blood test means you probably have oral hsv1 from childhood. Do you know what the value was for the blood test for hsv2? The positive swab may mean you recently got infected with hsv2. What kind of swab was it? culture or PCR? What symptoms did you have that was swabbed? Do you have any estimate of when you would have been exposed with the virus? any days when you had a new partner or unprotected sex? You might want to wait at least 12 weeks, ideally 16 weeks (and in rare cases up to 24 weeks) to get another IgG blood test done for confirmation about hsv2. In the meanwhile, if it is definitely hsv2, you're right, valtrex is most effective if taken as soon as symptoms start, no more than a day after symptoms start. Your body will adjust with time and you will likely not need to take it all your life, although that are people who take valtrex daily and do just fine. It all depends on how well your immune system can keep the virus in check. Do you ever get cold sores on your lips? If you don't, inspite of having oral hsv1, your immune system has learnt to keep hsv1 in check, and will eventually learn to do the same for hsv2. There are many natural alternatives, please read through the natural remedies section on this forum, it's a good place to start. No 2 people are same when it comes to natural remedies (or even valtrex for that matter) so you'll need to experiment and see what works best for you. By the way, the fist outbreak is the worst, so it's possible you may not even have another outbreak or may have outbreaks very rarely. The first year is usually the most outbreaks. Good luck, and let us know if you have more questions.

      Hmmm I'd say it's always a risk so she needs to be prepared just in case. But I would say as you taking the suppression give it about a Max of 5 days til it's fully in your system and don't get off of it. Only have sex her ovulation days. Restrain from sex if u feel any symptoms coming. If you haven't already you need to study your body if you are asymptomatic I'd just say suppression therapy and sex only on ovulation days is your best bet. The risk will always be there but their are successful discordant couples going 10-20 years strong. So as long as she is aware of the risk I'd say go for it
