I can't seem to find any detailed threads about the Russian Vaccine. Can anyone elaborate?

It's an inactivated version of HSV for therapeutic vaccination. Initially good results but scientists behind it found out it wasn't that great overall. I recall even inactivated virus stuns dendritic cells and fails to really move the needle on T cells. You would think as the vaccine has all the viral proteins you'd get better antigenic breadth but that doesn't mean you get durability or the proper immune response by using it.

As Halford mentions in his blog there's a problem in chronic virus/cancer tumors where T cells are presented antigens so often they start ignoring the virus (and in the case of cancer tumors can grow). It's called T cell anergy. You can prime the immune system to see more antigens but the immune system still has a diminished immune system reactivation (sourceT cell anergy is an early event in the tumor-bearing host, and it suggests that tolerance to tumor antigens may impose a significant barrier to therapeutic vaccination.)

What's really going on for hsv is effector cells kill themselves rather than turn into memory cells because the hsv virus during latency is actually wearing them out by causing T cells to accumulate PD-1. Subunit, Live and inactivated unmutated virus versions don't change this. Which is why all HSV therapeutic vaccines have failed [durability].

There is a skin cancer T-cell therapy now approved by the FDA to block PD-1 using recombinant anti pd-1 antibodies. It's shown to significantly and not just temporary interrupt this to allow t-cells to turn into more memory cells. It should work for hsv sufferers with chronic OB (source: Restoring function in exhausted CD8 T cells during chronic viral infection and Blocking of PDL-1 Interaction Enhances Primary and Secondary CD8 T Cell Response to Herpes Simplex Virus-1 Infection). Incredibly expensive though and only approved by FDA for skin cancer...  (its x4000 the cost of gold). Someone here said HSV cure will be a by-product of HIV cure. Rather skin cancer and HSV have more in common.

I can't speak to the efficacy of the Russian vaccine, but so far it seems to have caused me no harm. I acquired it from Russia via airmail a few weeks ago and self-injected it intradermally, per the recommended protocol. No adverse effects aside from mild redness, which is normal.

S this vaccine suppose to stop both transmission and OB's?

It's a Russian anti-herp vaccine, and Russia approved it for sale there. It might help, it might not do much - Russia is less stringent than the FDA in approving things, but they did have some Russian data supporting it's approval for sale in Russia. Also, if there is a therapeutic effect, it may fade over time, an issue many herp vaccines in the past have had. It seemed worth a shot (or 5), but I can't comment on the effects yet - aside from the fact that I am still alive and nothing bad has happened to me as a result of my decision to obtain it from overseas and self-administer it . . . they give it to people in Russia all the time, so I figured why not . . .

I haven't taken it.  But most reports were that it only worked for a while and then stopped working.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.

      It was properly typed. Definitely HSV-2. No, he doesn’t get oral cold sores. So should I expect this to be another OB coming? I’ve never had an outbreak in my life and have been with my husband for 8 years with no problem! So I hope this isn’t going to keep occurring

      Hey @ayekayelle I am afraid to say this is pretty typical of the first few months, a fairly high chance of rolling outbreaks. Maybe the suppressive therapy will be of assistance for a while at least. By the way just to add, was you culture properly typed? Or just assumed to be HSV-2 given location? Its 50/50 seemingly as to whether cultures are typed. Does your husband get oral cold sores?

      I just had my first OB during the first week of April, and was diagnosed with HSV2 on April 12th. I just finished my 10 day cycle of acyclovir yesterday. Today I've been feeling uncomfortable. No burning or pins and needles feelings, just more so uncomfortable and not right down there. Is it possible to be getting another OB this soon, or am I just being paranoid? I'm starting suppressive therapy as soon as I receive my medication. Blah...

      Doesn't sound like HSV. You can get tested in 12 wks to be sure. Get rest
