HSV2 vaccine Vitaherpavac


Recommended Posts

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 . . .

      Yes, FHC research is all about a full fledged cure (i.e. a sterilization cure). It's not a vaccine. The latent virus is the virus that resides in ganglionic neurons permanently. When the latent virus reactivates (i.e. replicates), it causes shedding, or an actual OB. There are the ganglion along the spine called the Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG).  HSV infection of the DRG, specifically at the base of the spine, causes genital herpes. Then there's the ganglion on the sides of the face/head.  HSV infection of that ganglion causes oral herpes. The FHC work involves transporting a gene editor to the neurons in the ganglion mentioned above. That gene editor cuts the latent viral DNA in two locations, to eliminate it; i.e. a sterilizing cure. A functional cure, for example, would be something like, stopping the latent virus from replicating, but the latent virus would remain in the ganglion neurons. Stopping it from replicating would prevent OBs and shedding. Of course any therapeutic vaccine is also welcome. I mean, if it reduces OBs and shedding by 80%+, that's very helpful, and it gets closer to a functional cure, but not quite.

      @WilsoInAusI got a Roche test today. And my HSV II igg value is 0.07. It seems that I wasn't infected. Thank you so much for all those help!!! So grateful!!!

      Hello did you get relief? I have this problem and it begin afrer I got herpes. Recurring knife cutS on rectum
    • Honey7575
      I believe what you are saying. This is the forum that everyone can share their own symptoms. I am alsa having knife cuts regularly on my anal area afrer herpes and went many doctors. Now trying suppressive antiviral. Hope it works

      I have my hopes on FHC, but a full fledged cure? This virus hibernate in our spine and can lay dormant there for a lifetime as our immune defense can not get there, I have high hopes but will take a functional cure for now ASAP i am tired of this shit.
