Trial for efficiency of vatrex on early stage of AD
Hi all, I have found study about relation between Alzheimer disease and hsv virus. I remember it was discussed here on HC before. I have no doubt hsv has impact on brain cognitive function especially while we're ageing. I wouldn't be worried about my oral hsv which got pretty weak with age, but as I got hsv 1 also genitally recently, I feel I have virus in my whole body and for sure it travels or will travel to brain with weaken immune system caused by various factors or ageing. Reactivation of hsv in brain can cause AD whereas reactivation could be even asymptomatic or with very mild symptoms (that's why unnoticed). It's quite scary, but it can have positive side too. Scientists try to find treatment for Alzheimer disease and research shows that antivirals may be the way. In that study they mention common valtrex, but they also point out new type of antiviral BAY 57–1293 shows much better efficiency. I've googled it and it's basically Pritelivir. I wish Alzheimer disease research can force Pritelivir approval by FDA and help hsv research. Genital herpes sufferers are generally neglected, but if it comes to AD epidemy, the action could finally start.
