I want to reserve this topic as a humorous/sarcastic corner to sort of see how many things users can find online that had a crazy amount of funding or used tax payer money, which could’ve been used instead for things like research, cures, awareness related to diseases or serious medical problems.
Hopefully it’ll be a way to just blow some steam at things we’re not very happy about or find funny. I’ll start:
This is just unneccessary and the money could easily have funded research for HSV or helped people that are homeless or even helped Texas get a better sex-ed program
I had a possible contact with the virus on 3 september, I starded taking isoprinosine since 14th september, 6 tablets of 500mg per day. It is possible to get a false negative results 3 months after contact because of this? How does this drug work on herpes? It boosts the immune system by stimulating the antibody production or it decreases the viral replication and it makes it harder to detect?
Thank you in advance,
More CRISPR use for HIV...which can only lead to helping the people with HSV soon...
“It’s like hiding a book in a stack at the library, and the book has instructions to build a nasty bomb. To get rid of that information, you need to get it back out of the library. We’ve never had the technology to do that inside the living cell until CRISPR came along. It’s the first efficient way to do that inside living cells.”
How CRISPR gene-editing tech can fight HIV
Oct 21, 2017
Researchers at UCSF have received a three-year, $1.6 million grant to advance their work using novel gene-editing technology to make human blood cells less susceptible to HIV infection.
The grant, from biopharmaceutical giant Gilead Sciences, a global leader in sales of HIV treatments, will fund a team of scientists working to modify the DNA of a type of white blood cell to make them immune to HIV infection.
The cells, called T cells, have long been a focus of researchers seeking to improve HIV treatments. T cells help the immune system fight many diseases, including some cancers and flu viruses. They play a unique role in HIV because the virus targets and destroys T cells, and HIV-positive patients whose T cells become too depleted by the virus will progress to AIDS...
...It is the first research initiative that Foster City’s Gilead, through its philanthropic program, has funded that involves using CRISPR as a tool in HIV cure-related research. While $1.6 million is not a huge amount, it comes with fewer restrictions than many government grants. The grant will fund a team of five researchers for three years.

I'm negative after 4 months for both hsv 1 and 2 but still have herpes type symptoms , I'm about to go take a PCR test , I want to know if this is going to be accurate. I've read that some say yes and others say no. I have no active lesion or blister , so I don't know if it's recommended, I'm so lost. Would appreciate an input before I follow through with it.

I asked this question like 2 weeks ago , but I only got one response. I would appreciate it if there was more input since I'm new to this. As of now I'm still negative after 4 months through igg testing. My concern is that I have herpe symptoms based on Google (yes I know I should stay off Google). My question is this, if I have these symptoms, does that mean that antibodies are present, therefore they should show up on my IGG test? Or how does it work? The virus is present and manifesting itself but antibodies are slowly coming in to stop the progress? I'm lost I'm sorry.
