Way to go - someone in vaccine development is actually still using science in North America!

This is a great article. I'm happy that there are several scientists pushing for a live vaccine now, research is going in the right direction. The article doesn't state if the virus in this vaccine can replicate or not though. I'll be keeping my eye on this one for sure. Thanks! :)

appears to be new research, let's hope it goes to clinical trials asap

Thanks for the read. It really is alarming when I read that 500 mil people are affected with the virus. I'm happy that it appears that people want to do something about it but it pains me to know that people feel isolated because of the virus. I mean if that many people have it then why isn't it more acceptable. The reason it continues to get spread is because nobody wants to talk about it.

"The Einstein team hopes to begin clinical trials on humans within a few years."

I wish they could even move this estimate up. Since the new approach works perfectly with mice (100%), a small phase 1 human trial to test safety and efficacy would be invaluable.

Thanks, oneday!

It appears that a lot of them are a few years away but at least there's something to look forward to. I just wish one day I can wake up and hear that it has been cured. That would be lovely.

This is the first time I'm hearing about this one so it is nice that people are trying to find a cure for this one. I want a cure but the most important thing for me is to stop transmission. And when the news of a vaccine hits, it will be interesting to read about the real numbers because I believe what is out there has been underestimated. The stats say that if I'm in a room with 20 people that at least 14 of them have a combo of hsv 1 or 2....okay.. but the problem is nobody is going to admit it unless you see it on their face. I have counted, in my office alone, out of 40 plus people that many with hsv1 and not one of them thinks they have herpes.

So if this can make the virus come out of latency would this plus antivirals = a pure cure??

A pure cure would involve the removal of the virus. But if this eliminated symptoms AND transmission? Yah, I'd be cool with a "maintenance cure."

And for the people who complain about the regime aspect of such a possibility, suck it up. Think of how complex the virus is, and ask yourself how realistic it is to expect a cure (in our lifetime).

Even if the vaccine was fast tracked you're looking at 5+ years. From what I've seen at the moment the best bet is the Coridon/Admedus HSV-2 vaccine for a real, genuine T-Cell base "cure" or at least completely suppressive therapy. Company has a great track record with Gardasil too (totally different virus and problem set though).

I think this is totally unrelated to the original topic but yes, you should get Gardasil. Last I checked, the latest version protects against up to 9 different strands of HPV including all the ones that cause warts and the 4 that cause cervical cancer in women. It is also available for men. Why men are not also getting this vaccine is pure stupidity, in my opinion.

      Thank you Slkxx. I want to talk to someone I trust but I am so afraid if I tell my best friend she will tell her husband, which is understandable. I completely trust her to not judge me but if her husband finds out his best friend is an ex of mine and I just don't want this to get around our group of friends. I have been lucky in the fact that the guy who gave it to me has been there for me but it isn't the same. Confiding in him is just making his own struggle more difficult as he feels terrible for what happened but he did not have any bad intentions. As it turns out finding out led to answering a lot of questions he has had about other health issues he had. So in a weird way this happening may actually help him in the long run with giving him an avenue for treatment. I don't want to pile onto his issues even though he has caused mine because at the end of the day he is a good guy who had no idea what was happening. I'm so glad you were able to talk to your friend and I truly hope the suicidal thoughts become a thing of your past. I am here if you need another ear.

      Various reasons are possible, including: genetics, immune system, triggers (e.g. stress), lack of nutrition/exercise, bad luck, etc. No one person has the exact same experience.  Have you tried antivirals?
