  1. 1. Latent HIV was recently eliminated in a murine model (mice) if the same or similar technology was applied to HSV1 and HSV2 would you be willing to become a human guinea pig and try it outside the Country?

    • No - Only FDA clinicals trials starting after the years 2030 with long term safety evidence

They're going to test in monkeys next. People are far off right now.  However the technology and methods are not that new and are applicable as well to HSV1 and HSV2, it could "simply" be adapted to that disease and made in a lab.

I see. So that is probably 10 years till then it gets approved LoL. Hope the pharmacy's industry doesnt step on the way of it.

The monkeys trials will be for herpes or for the technology in general ?

For HIV, but it could be altered to go after HSV1/2

@OhFuckMyDickHurts I voted, but can you explain what the survey will be used for? Are you leaving the website due to you working on something regarding HSV

Please vote. I'm taking off for the summer and maybe longer. Accordingly once this gets past 100 I'll have my answer and will probably be deactivating my account and saying goodbye you'll. 

 

 

We'll miss you.

Wow, this is a shock. I am going to miss you. Your scientific view point are a great counter balance here. Take care Dark Knight.

I don't want to influence the voting. We need at least 100 people to vote.  Maybe to convince people that we want a sterilizing cure,  gauge people's interest in it, find those who may want to participate one day in a human trial, lobby people in academia, pharmaceutical companies about  incremental improvements are of no interest, to NIH to spend and research more on gene therapy, a NIH grant request....

Leaving is contingent on voting results and voting quantity. I do want to do something this summer and if something were to happen the order would need to be put in soon. BTW I messaged HC support, I don't know if deactivating/deleting my account deletes all my prior posts, some of which I want to save and read later, in the meantime I may just leave it as is.

 

Now you are being a hero man

Well that's bummer OFMDH and this forum will suffer a huge loss without your input and vast knowledge. Hopefully you can still pop in every now and then. Wishing you the best.

Hey OFMDHs I appreciate you're honesty on here, you will be missed by many. I think I remember you saying that Valtrex is a God sent to you. Can I ask why HSV is such a big deal to you if Valtrex helps stop your OBs? I'm on daily Valtrex but still get OBs and burning pain.

I know you didn't ask me, Snow...sorry to hijack your comment! But I don't really have outbreaks at all and HSV is still a huge deal to me mentally & I also hate the risk of passing it to someone else :(

It's ok! I love hearing opinions. I can completely see what you're saying about not wanting to pass it on, that makes a lot of sense. I hope good things will be coming to help all of us!

I would do it if they could cure my hpv as well, I hate hearing about poor animals being tested on they can just use me to test on everything.

I voted I feel bad though for all the animals being used is this the only way to find a cure and it seems like a lot of these studies are just pointless cause they fail in the end.

Valtrex helps but it doesn't end it. I still get itching and breakout OBs which appear to be about every 2-3 months now. Obviously it still effects my personal life and my health even with Valtrex

This is quite intriguing to me.  I was curious if someone, with scientific knowledge, would be willing to take on a CRISPR project.

CRISPR kits are available for purchase at a relatively inexpensive price.  The trick is knowing what has already been done, what's failed, what's succeeded, and the hurdles that remain for the technology.  It seems you have a grasp on the field so this should serve you well.

Feel free to ignore this question, as I know you're not wanting to let the cat out of the bag per se, but what makes you confident you can achieve results that academia and biotech start-ups haven't been able to?

      That’s why I’m seeing a specialist who can do that. Not every doctors office have swabs available, so maybe that’s the case here. I’ve called urgent care clinics before to ask if they swab for HSV and many around here said no.  
    • WilsoInAus
      I doubt this. If the doctor had ANY suspicion that you had herpes around the eye a swab would  have been taken. Gross negligence otherwise. This is totally insulting to the intellect of our readers. Mate, it’s time to leave the delusion behind before you do yourself or anyone else real harm. What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?
    • blurneworder
      Would you like to call my eye doctor and tell them this? The cornea is fine, but there is damage to the outside of my eye. Damage she has seen in other patients with herpes of the eye. I am not making this stuff up. 
    • blurneworder
      Do you have any photos? Sounds similar to me.
    • WilsoInAus
      Hang on that’s not the case. The doctor knows full well those symptoms align potentially to long term HSV-1 infections. You cannot do a swab for eye herpes. The diagnosis involves inspection of the cornea. I am not sure why you feel the need to spread misinformation. Of course you have tested negative for HSV more than three months post possible infection. It is DANGEROUS to both yourself and others to assume your symptoms are herpes related when they may actually be serious. Please reflect upon your need to attempt to erroneously validate other people’s symptoms in order to support a baseless interpretation of your own symptoms.
