I also do hope they would approve Amenolief as the new medication for HSV2 (^^)/ Considering the market of HSV2, Astelas will apply for the sales/product permission for FDA. In case of live vaccine, it may take another decade to be approved by FDA, but the drug has completed Phase 3 in the US, I personally believe the drug will be approved quickly (^^)

It may be quite difficult for a foreign traveler to buy a newly-approved drug WITHOUT doctor's prescription... Even for Japanese, doctor's prescription is necessary for the new drugs. Basically, a prescription issued in a foreign country will not be accepted in any pharmacy. Considering the English literacy of the Japanese pharmacists, only a few of them will be capable of reading it, though... Anyways, just wait and see until the result of the meeting comes out. Without the formal approval, we cannot get the drug for any means.

Of course I would see a Japanese doctor. I would go there.

That would make sense as aciclovir treats both shingles and HSV but in different doses

Lucy

I have been saying this for some time but there are some including Dr Halford who say that shingles vaccine gives no relief to HSV sufferers. 

Just search my posts, i have been saying since i got my shot it helps me alot. Others dont believe it. 

Guys, i had the Zostavax Shingles vaccine 1 plus year ago and i have had considerable relief from my symptoms of HSV 2. My outbreaks reduced in severity and frequency, nerve pain disappeared, itching disappeared,

My doctor is so impressed with the results for using it for HSV he regularly gives to anyone, even under 50.

IT MAKES SENSE. Varicella vaccine (Chicken pox) developed in Japan, first used in Japan, Zostavax is exactly the same as chicken pox vaccine but 14 times stronger. 

Zostavax really helped me, and i cant wait for this shingles vaccine to be available, im sure it will help HSV 1 and 2 also.

Has Astellas stated they will apply in the US? Or is that speculation?

It should work for both viruses. similar to valtrex but far more superior. We will have to wait and see. This is a good product and I've actually considered moving my family to Japan, haha.

I really hope you're right, I hope this works for HSV 2...I cannot handle any more disappointments. :(

Since I'm just an ordinary guy without any relation with medical professionals, I have no ideas about this... However, what I have experienced so far as a general Japanese is that we need the direct medical inspection of a doctor and his/her prescription to buy a newly-approved drug. This is also true when we ask the pharmacy to refill the same drug; we do need to see the doctor and ask the doctor to issue a prescription. Therefore, it will be fairly difficult to ask a doctor or a pharmacy to ship the drug to you in a foreign country...

This is just my personal speculation ..., or my personal wish... I believe neither of Maruho or Astelas has not yet applied for the sales/production permission in the US.

Sure, but as you can see on Halford's petition, it doesn't really work... thousands suffer and just over 1500 signatures :-( it's hard to get it to people even through H websites... They usually deleted it when I posted it (theravax petition) and some denied my access. The only one helpful is this one - HC. You would think they (other H websites) wanna help us, but they just care about money :-( what I do now, I promote HC on different forums, so people can come here and see the research. Sorry for long story... petition would be great if we can get to many people.

Yep. I am interested in knowing, if I could see a doctor in Japan and get a prescription, how much of the medication I would be allowed to take home.

Always wanted to go to Japan anyway.

This is the real deal. F*"# it I will take pills daily or once a week in order to guarantee non transmission to loved ones. I have no problems with that.

I think everybody on HC is concentrating on Halford's vaccine but Im skeptical on it.  But as mentioned ^^^, read the links and it wouldn't hurt reading the threads as well.

      I know this thread is a couple of years old, but it’s been helpful to me, and I wanted to contribute as well. Back to Berliner’s original post, I’ve tested negative on several IGGs, with the latest ones being 1 yr and now almost 2 years past exposure.  Figuring out what was going on was the worst nightmare I’ve ever been through in my life. I made the mistake of drinking heavily a week after my father died of cancer, and I had unprotected AS with an ex, who happened to be poly and had some occasional unprotected M2M encounters.   Three days later I had a red line rash along my (sorry to get explicit) crack. This was followed by a rectal burning. Tested negative for G&C and related tests.  Over the next couple of weeks I had severe swelling and discomfort in my lower right quadrant and was told to go to the ER, where (I guess as a standard practice) they did a cat scan, which revealed nothing.  Also not a bacterial infection.  However the repeated manual examinations that occurred at urgent care and the ER seemed to relieve the abdominal pressure over the next few days.  I then had diarrhea for the next several weeks after.  I developed what felt like internal hemorrhoids, which were exacerbated by the diarrhea, and a gastro doctor confirmed via digital exam that there was indeed some sort of mass that felt like possible hemorrhoids. He ordered a sigmoidoscopy, but by the time it was undertaken, whatever was there was gone. After the procedure though, I felt much better for a while, possibly due to digestive issues clearing up after the colon “cleanse.” But this was concurrent with other issues.   About 3 weeks after the encounter I developed a large rash on my left thigh. Shortly thereafter I started having light sensitivity issues, culminating in a fever-like state after being outside in the sun only for 15 minutes after work. At work around that time for a couple days I felt like I was going through life encased in a gauzy gel- similar to being on laughing gas at the dentist, but not in a good way. I didn’t know what the hell was happening to me. I developed a severe case of canker sores for about a day. Later during a sunny drive, after getting back in the car at a gas station I noticed a red blotch below my lip. I tried to shrug it off but it happened again on the trip back.  So by about a month after the encounter I was having more anxiety. I spent the night at a friend’s house and woke up with a massive, swollen red eye and swollen lips. I got eye drops for bacterial conjunctivitis but that was wishful thinking.  A couple of weeks later, my lips were covered in sores. I smothered them with abreva. By the next day, they had mostly gone away. I tried to do a swab test at urgent care (I believe it was the next day), but there was not enough there to make any sort of positive diagnosis. Since then, I’ve had what you could call repeated aborted lesions and red blotches that appear around my mouth, particularly after stress and alcohol consumption. But even having peanut butter or chocolate would set it off for a long time. Fair skin doesn’t help- there was no hiding it. Two months after the encounter, I had my first vaginal burning- it was pretty intense and I had to use ice cubes because I didn’t know what else to do.   The worse feeling though was the periodic flare-ups of rectal itching/burning, often accompanied by another red line rash. It made sitting uncomfortable for about the next two months. I couldn’t wear pants at work- only skirts seemed to make things somewhat less irritated. And for the first three months, I was still testing for HIV along with HSV because of the overlapping symptoms (rash, diarrhea, neural pain, severe flu like symptoms without fever). I lost a lot of weight and had panic attacks. On top of all this I had just moved to a new city and started a new job and didn’t have a support network. And the sad thing is, I had to deal with all of this instead of being able to grieve for my father and being a better source of support to my mother. She had to support me without understanding what was happening.   Another bad thing through all of this was having both my ex and my current partner treat me like I’m crazy. That makes me feel alone and in the dark. Another “hysterical woman.” F*** that.  And while I felt grateful that my current was at the time still ready to be with me even if I had hsv, it’s a little discomfiting that he still doesn’t really believe me. But I’ve learned to live with ambiguity. And now I’m used to doctors as well as partners acting like this is nonexistent. Especially with negative IGG tests even 2 years later, which have left me without any answers.  I’m lucky in a way to be able to blend in because I don’t get obvious sores, genitally or orally (I can cover up the blotches with concealer, and they fortunately have lessened in frequency). But I still get the rectal itching/burning every six months or so (anthistamines seem to alleviate it a bit). And as more of a concern, I’ve had a cramp in my lower right quadrant ever since, which feels like it’s in my digestive tract. Since this has pretty much spread everywhere else in my body, intestinal involvement wouldn’t surprise me, and it isn’t unheard of anyways. I’ve tried to move past this and have since gotten married to my partner, who is a source of support (even if he doesn’t believe I’m having health problems. I know that’s a contradiction but occasionally I want to believe that too.).  I’m also newly pregnant, and symptoms have started to flare up again somewhat. I’m sure this will be an adventure. Hopefully more good than crazy. I know I’m going to struggle with the fear of passing this along but I’m trying to reconcile what doctors say (which is that it is extremely rare) with my own intuition about what I need to be careful of. Maybe I’ll repost with an update down the road. In short, there are people out there who test negative and have to live with loved ones and doctors thinking that a negative test closes the book on this. Again, learning to live with ambiguity is a real life lesson that I’m still coming to grips with. This forum and specifically this post have been a source of comfort that I haven’t been able to find elsewhere. Thanks everyone for the support for the community.

      You deepthroat so good that you get all kinds of mouth-to-skin-of-base contact? Kudos to you, but that is extremely rare.
