Hi, 

 

Has anyone heard on how did the latest trial go for theravaX vaccines in St. Kits and Mexico? I have developed auto immune diseases cos of herpes and viral infection in my eyes.

 I really want this to end. 

I heard about the recent news of Dr. Bill Halfords. May his soul rip, but is this going to hamper the progress of the theravaX vaccines? 

 

Pls can you tell me of the latest progress?

"He said he hopes positive results from the 2016 trial and other overseas clinical trials lead to clinical trials in the United States of Halford’s vaccines in three to five years."

So the plan is to just delay clinical trials and availability in the USA by 3-5 years instead of trying to get clinical trials setup by the FDA now? 

Lobbying for amenalief (approved in Japan)/GEN-003 (already passed safety trials and Phase 2) would be MUCH safer and faster than waiting 3-5 years for trials in the USA to START. 

This doesn't make any sense based on RVX's mission. GEN-003 is supposed to BE out in 3-4 years anyway. Theravax is going to take YEARS before it's even trialed in the USA).

If everyone wants to wait 3-5 years for a vaccine for the trials (phase 1) in the USA and then another 5-7+ years for it to be approved and out on the market - which means looking at 2025-2029 before any RVX product is when AVAILABLE in the USA - I guess ...good luck. Absolutely no guarantees here at all it seems. There was so much talk and passion from RVX. It seems like it was all hollow promises on getting something safe and quick to people?

We need something faster. If you want something faster, safer, and better. Join our movement. We aren't going to wait 8-12 years for something to be available in the USA. By then GEN will be on their 2nd or 3rd HSV vaccine in the USA.

Oi, 

 

Alguém já ouviu sobre como o último teste foi feito para vacinas theravaX em St. Kits e no México? Desenvolvi doenças auto-imunes do herpes e infecção viral nos meus olhos.

 Eu realmente quero que isso termine. 

Ouvi sobre as recentes notícias do Dr. Bill Halfords. Que sua alma rasgue, mas isso vai dificultar o progresso das vacinas theravaX? 

 

Você pode me contar os últimos progressos? 

Were you one of the participants of the test in 2016 on St. Kits? Have you had your worsening with the vaccination ?? I did not understand your comment, please clarify.

A doubt came to my mind: let's take into account that a person is vaccinated by theravax (live attenuated virus), and later choose to perform a genetic editing procedure, in this case as there will be a secondary infection, it would be more difficult to work with crispr Cas9, because we would have a much larger number of infected cells or not ??? Could anyone explain?

An injection of live avirulent (barely replicates) in your leg will not do anything if you want to remove latency from another location.

A response to why...

Its really hard not to bash Theravax. I genuinely try my hardest to not see the negative in theravax but I would only be lying to myself. Im desperate for help like many of you but c'mon.. So many false promises and lies. 

Where are the results? Desperate People will fly down south and pay 1000s without any data. It sounds like a pure money grab vs trying to help them out.

Why isnt Rational vaccines offering the vaccine there anways?  I dont ever recall Halford talking about Minerva?? 

Did Thiel not invest millions? 

From what I understand. Compassionate sales werre approved in st.kitts because the vaccine is approved there. Dr.halford has mentioned before about c.sales but I dont think he mentioned Minerva. Although the doctor working in minerva lab is in RVx. Again. This is from what I understand. 

What do you mean by "why isnt rvx offering the vaccine there ? ". You mean why they didnt announce it officially on their site ? Well the site of Minerva Lab is still under construction. You can call the doctor there. @RVX Patient and Investor added her number in previous posts in this thread or the other one I guess

Sean,

How many times are you and I going to tap dance about this?

Yes, Thiel invested millions.  Yes, the vax is available via Minerva Labs on St.Kitts.  thats the only govt allowing it at this time.  Yes, Bill died so when his doses run out its gonna be a lot more expensive.

What false promises?  What lies?

Get over yourself.  Everyone has a hard time with HSV, it's no reason or excuse however to attack those trying to help!!  Who else is offering anything right now??  Or even trying to??

Btw Dr's Veloz and Hanley are NOT RVx employees.  They simply use RVx products, and can be reached via Minerva Labs.

Don't succumb to the dark side Sean.

But how they are allowed to sell them if they are not from RVx !! I dont mean to attack but doesnt this seem a bit unproffissional by RVx ?

Pfizer doesn't sell direct to patients.  Neither does Merck, GSK or anyone else.

RVx makes the treatment available to Dr's.  Dr's treat the patients.  What's the problem?

Just now, Sean123 said:

This is where I was getting at about why Rvx isnt selling it there.

and what about my answer was unclear?  

no pharmaceutical company sells direct to patients.  Dr's can use the treatment we make available where it is legal to do so.  a DOCTOR, not RVx, treats the patient.

obviously Bill died and so thats delayed everything, and there are endless arguments here from profiles who claim they were in the trial and yada yada yada.  long story short, i don't know when the final papers from the 2016 trial will come out.  but Dr.Veloz was the Dr who administered that trial, so maybe she could give your more info.

i just want to make clear, that i am not pushing for anyone to go and get shots.  i am simply stating the reality of the situation, which is that people can now get a consultation with Dr's Veloz or Hanley to see if they can get the shots, and that the shots will be a lot more expensive once Bill's doses run out.

i believe the rationale is really to make the vax available to those who are willing to seek it out, take the risks, etc, but really the intention is for those suffering the worst.  i don't decide who gets shots, and i don't even really feel comfortable advising anyone that they should do it, unless they themselves want to.  i do however want to get the situation as it is relayed here, so people can decide for themselves how to proceed, if at all.

      So I made it to month four without a visible sign of an outbreak. I had a really bad outbreak in the ending of April and was diagnosed with GHSV1. My initial outbreak took about a month to heal and left scars (a lighter pigmentation from my overall complexion on my genitals). Sadly I have been ridiculously paranoid to the point I have taken two 7 day treatments of Valtrex. More than likely it was probably just yeast infections (I get them way more than I should, even before getting hsv). I also take lysine twice a day and three times a day when I feel like an outbreak is coming on. I’ve been applying tea tree to my genitals everyday since getting diagnosed to dry out any potential outbreaks that are present that I possibly mistake for an ingrown hair. When does the worrying stop? How often have anyone on this forum with GHSV1 get outbreaks? What’s are some good tips and tricks?

      June 3rd I may of been exposed to Herpes.
      Performed oral and vaginal sex with a one night stand.  A few days later, "felt off" and got tested on the 7th (negative for all stds, but not tested for herpes)
      Took a round of Doxycycline the following week around the 14th for a few days as I was feeling extremely Hot and urinating frequently.  It seemed to help for an instant, however still feeling off.
      Tested again n the 28th - Negative for all stds including HSV igg however positive for HSV igm with an index of 1.14 (Positive being anything greater than 1.1) *approximately 26 days after suspected exposure
      Dr. prescribed Valacyclovir 2x day.  Started taking medication July 2nd.  
      Pain and discomfort in the penis continuing.  With sensations in the pelvic area and kidneys.
      Tested again on July 20th - Negative for all stds and HSV igg/igm.
      Tested again August 6th - Negative for all stds and HSV igg/igm.
       
      I have been taking valacyclovir since July 2nd 2x daily.
      I have felt just not right since the possible exposure date (or shortly after).
      My penis has gone through feelings of tingling sensations, heat, pain but not to touch, pain in my pelvis.  Things seemed to of started with a burning sensation in the inner thigh.
      I feel as I am having shooting sensation in my legs and occasionally have an itchy/tingle around where my pubic hair is from time to time.  Hell, today and maybe yesterday I've noticed tingling in my scalp.
      I tried again today to not take the valacyclovir and lasted until about 11:30 am after waking up around 8 am.  My lips and the skin around my face starts to burn and the tingling around the pubic hair area of my genitals increase in its sensations.  It's almost as a sleeping demon is waking up when I don't take the meds.  When I take it, it takes about a day or so for things to get back in control.
      My penis/genitals have also not smelled the same since.  It seems my scent has changed. 
      Today is day 68 - is this how it's going to be forever?  
      I am worried I have this all over my face as the burning is in the corners of my mouth and down my chin, as well as my nose.
      I have not shown any sores however I do feel my penis and scrotum has felt hot and sometimes red, typically on the head of the penis at the urethra.  Multiple dr's say it looks normal to them.
      I am so lost and feel like I am falling apart physically, mentally and emotionally.  I guess I just wait until week 12 (in a few more weeks) to maybe test positive... but then what?

      I’ve been a frequent visitor of this site for awhile. The times when I feel down about my H+ status, I have come here to read stories of hope and happy endings, and I feel a lot better and reassured. 
      So, I finally made and account because I wanted to share my happy story! 
      I was diagnosed with GHSV2 about 5 years ago. While I’ve been with and disclosed to two partners about my status since then, they had already told me that they had been with women previously who had the same diagnosis, so I wasn’t nervous to disclose my status to them after finding that info out. 
      Neither of those relationship panned out. When I felt like I was ready to date again the thought of having to have the disclosure convo to another person made me so anxious! Like sick to my stomach, losing sleep kind of anxious. What if my status is a dealbreaker? And all the other worst case scenarios.  But I haven’t let this stop me from dating in the past, and I didn’t want to let that stop me from dating now. And I met a guy who is amazing: funny, kind, thoughtful, smart, understanding, and curious about me and what makes me happy. The more time we spent together( and the more I developed my interest in him), the more anxious I got to give the talk. 
      We’ve been seeing each other for a few weeks and the physical chemistry is definitely there (kissing, touching over the clothes). But I would not let myself take it any farther with him until I had the disclosure talk. 
      Heading into our date last night, I knew that I couldn’t wait any longer to have the convo I had so been dreading. When I felt like the time was right, I finally gave my “spiel” and I was so relieved to get it out of the way, I honestly didn’t care if he rejected me at that point. I was proud of myself for doing something difficult and flexing my integrity muscle. Well, He actually got emotional, thanking me for putting his health and well-being above mine and told me this doesn’t change anything, in fact he said that me being open about my status before being intimate made him like me even more! He asked questions about how H effects me and was even curious about my experience dealing with the stigma. It went way way better than I anticipated, and we have plans to spend this upcoming weekend together! 
      Whether or not it works out with him, I’m proud of myself. For those that are even thinking about having this conversation ahead of time, you should be proud of yourselves too. This is not an easy conversation to have and it shows a tremendous amount of character. 
      Thank you to this community for sharing your stories. Hoping my story can help others during times of hopelessness that I too have experienced.

      23year old Female; Been a year since a swab came back HVS1 positive on my vag!
      I’ve never had an STI in my life and Really compared to my friends have only had sex a handful of times.. so why me. *Tear sliding down my face. 
      6 partners.. 2 of which were after my first outbreak (unprotected one nighters - clearly didn’t learn my lesson) 
      I didn’t tell them, is that bad of me? They didn’t ask.. and after all it’s just a cold sore nore was I having a flare up at the time I actually forgot I had it for a while!
      I have endlessly trolled website after website..most of them contradicting others, I feel like I know more now then any doctor ever could! 
      On my year anversery of contracting this thing I had a nasty flare up. 5 weeks. To be fair though no where near as painful as my first! Had I of not left it four weeks to get the antivirals I feel like it wouldn’t have been half as bad - this makes me feel a little better knowing it’s not going to be as bad as my first although I do here you can get them in you wee hole *ekkkkkkk
      that scares me.
      Anyways.. I want to know anything and everything about your experiences! 
      Triggers - food, sex, exhaustion, periods (or periods/ hormones effect HSV 2 more so)??
      I just started a very physical job when I got my first and current reoccurance riding race horses in the saddle for 5 hours+  6 days a weeks do you think irritation had somthing to do with it? I wasn’t sleeping well either so maybe I was exhausted? 
      Reoccurance rate 
      Do you tell your boyfriends
      Do you pretend your one of those people who don’t know untill they get a flare up - has that ever worked against you? 
      Do you just say you get cold sores? 
      If both has ghsv 1 can we have sex or will it still spread? 
      I went to a sexual health clinic after the outbreak upset and crying.. I asked if my sex life was over she basically laughed in my face and went don’t be stupid, I wouldn’t even tell them you have it! The question is what if I was to have a flare up.. and with this new job I worried flare ups are going to happen quite often! 
      After all it is just a cold sore. 
      Thanks
