Squarex Topical

While more testing is happening to prove these results, researchers are saying the clinical trial showed that one topical application of the Squarex drug showed effectiveness in reducing long-term cold-sore recurrence.

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing @GlitterDx!

The company has a website: http://squarex-pharma.com/

I guess if it's approved for other uses they can skip phase 1 (safety) of the trial process but still need to complete phase 2-4 (efficacy and dosing) for FDA approval?

how long for it to be approved ? maybe years coz its only in phase 1

I believe they were able to skip phase one because the drug has already been proven safe for other applications. Their phase 2 trial is well underway. So hopefully not too long!

With respect, I completely disagree. A new, seemingly effective HSV treatment that very few of us had heard of yesterday is advancing through phase 2 trials with very strong interim results. That's fantastic news!

One of my favourite things (short of a cure announcement) is to read about smart scientists who I wasn't previously aware of that are working hard to find HSV cures/better treatments. I wonder how many others are out there that haven't received publicity yet? Go science!

Everything you post is negative. I know dealing with this virus is difficult but maybe try to be more optimistic! Things could always be much worse.

Does it go through 3 or 4 phases?

I'm not an expert but my understanding is that following a successful phase 3 trial, the drug can be approved, marketed and sold. Phase 4 is when the drug is monitored AFTER being released to the public.

Can anyone find the protocol this paper used? I know squaric acid for warts requires an initial sensitization step where they put a 2% solution on your arm for 2 weeks before applying a 0.2% solution to the warts. It looks like this paper did a first time application with 2% and then a 0.2% application if it recurred, but I can't find the full text. The carrier seems to have been DMSO.

      Hey hi202020, the Varivax vaccine definitely removed the neuralgia for me, at least so far (fingers crossed). My signs of HSV1 infection after the blood test came back positive in December (with a high IGG of over 55) were: horrible flu symptoms initially (in February) with swollen lymph nodes, followed by almost non-stop, super painful genital neuralgia, and one oral outbreak in March. However, the neuralgia has completely disappeared since the end of April (about a month or so). I had the first vaccine on April 10 and the booster shot on May 19, so about a week ago.

      Hey Mackie I have the same neuralgia that you do, did you find anything that helped you? Did you try any vaccines? I’m feeling desperate as I’ve had non stop neuralgia/pain for 4+ months after contracting GHSV-1.

      Got my igG results after 13 months and it is negative I think I need to put this behind and may be rhink do some shitty infection that is causing this itching in genitals and on face. Just an FYI my Western blot at 7 months post exposure is negative.

      Exactly. Plus some people don't seroconvert ever or for a long time, so it's even larger than that.  Also, it takes longer for hsv. To show up on wb than on a commercial igg test. 
    • Stolo868
      Even Terri says that sensitivity of WB for hsv1 is 95-96%. So somebody has to be in this 4-5%...
