I just seen this a few minutes ago.
New article from Marisa Taylor
What do you guys think this means for gen 003 now? I'm thinking it's the final final blow...
I have read a lot about the success of the Theravax vaccine. Supposedly, it greatly reduced symptoms in extreme cases.
My questions are the following:
- Is Theravax a cure? In other words, will we be able to copulate with others without transmitting the disease or does it just reduce outbreaks?
- What does it take to call Theravax or anything else for that matter a "cure"?
- If Theravax was so successful, why has there been such a fall off on coverage?
- If Theravax was so successful, why are others not attempting similar techniques / methods as Dr. Halford? Everything else continues to fail and Theravax appears to still have some legs
- What can we do to help?
This disease has changed my life and I'm tired of hearing, "if people don't accept you with herpes, then they are jerks..... it is common, 1/5 people have it" No -- both of these coping pillars offer no solace. These people are not jerks and only 3/100 people KNOW they have herpes. Why would anyone knowingly put themselves at risk of an STD that puts you in such a highly stigmatized and hopeless group of the population? These success stories of a young hero/heroine finding love and acceptance are the exception, not the rule.
I have no idea how to cope. I have no idea how I am supposed to find love. Honesty will lead to rejection. Lying has eaten away my soul and sense of self. I don't want to be a bad person and would never want to give this to someone else. I feel like we have 2 paths: Isolation or dishonesty.
Please tell me there is a 3rd! I need hope!

Why do some people think it's odd that clinical trials are held outside the United States? It's actually more common than realized. Why? There are many reasons but one main one is the cost. It is nearly impossible for start up companies that have viable products that could be tested but cannot raise 50-100 million dollars to get any headway in the United States. That cost is ridiculous. So let's look at the facts. . .
STAT analyzed FDA records ( https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DevelopmentApprovalProcess/DrugInnovation/ucm537040.htm ) on the first 29 new drug approvals this year, 2017. (The agency approved two more new drugs in late August, but it has yet to post detailed information about their supporting clinical trials.) The findings:
• 86 percent of approvals were supported in part by data from trials conducted outside the U.S. and Canada.
• A new drug for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, was approved in the U.S. exclusively based on trials conducted in Japan.
• In the 11 cases in which a detailed breakdown of the data was available, a collective 58 percent of patients were enrolled outside of the U.S.
• The trials were conducted in more than 18 countries outside the U.S., ranging from Russia to South Africa to New Zealand to Italy. (Some countries that hosted trial sites were not named.)
Info from https://www.statnews.com/2017/09/08/clinical-trials-overseas-data/
In conclusion and response to the haters and fake news media, (regardless of what side of the fence you are on.)
1. Dr Halford never broke any laws.
2. FDA rules are in place for the United States. NOT other countries.
3. St Kitts follows regulations under EU laws, no laws or regulations were broken.
4. Under EU Laws. The Names Patient Program allows doctors to administer medicine to individuals who have exhausted all other options. Outside the US, named patient programs provide controlled, pre-approval access to drugs in response to requests by physicians on behalf of specific, or “named”, patients before those medicines are licensed in the patient’s home country.
Through these programs, patients are able to access drugs in late-stage clinical trials or approved in other countries for a genuine, unmet medical need, before those drugs have been licensed in the patient’s home country.
While I am not a fan of the current president, I do not see how it is constructive to attack investors who are willing to put up boatloads of money to help other people ( that they don't know, ) and further research that is going to help so many us. Why is this bad?
I think before people jump on the hate bandwagon and start vomiting their insidious opinions all over the Internet on how awful it is that a billionaire; who supported the current president is now an investor. Perhaps they should ask themselves "What have I done to help other people who suffer from herpes?" "What positive actions have I done to to make someone better?" I'm sorry but if all you have is nothing but hate and nothing to add to help others, then please remain in the herpes closet and shut the door.
I have created a group on Facebook called Theravax HSV1 & 2 as a platform for people to share their experiences from the Theravax Trails. This is a closed group. Please avoid any negativity as we already have enough of that in the outside world and we don't need it here on this group. You can share your experiences on the consultation, pre and post travel as well so that it helps every one make better decisions.
Members of this group can also help each other to travel together to get the vaccine (Not necessarily by means of funds) but just support as it's not always easy to go to a new country for an objective as strong as this. This group is for support. We are with you. <3
I urge the aspiring participants and the people who have been selected for the trails to join the Group and share their experience.
