R2 HSV mutant, real thing?

Recommended Posts

Miha

So, ive been digging the web again and found out about this particular technique of using mutated virus, that can not travel to nerve ganglia. Anybody heard of this before? The publishing date is not so prechistoric (Dec 2017) so there could be hope...

I believe this method has been brought up before for HIV. 

Even if it's successful, it might not be useful for existing HSV carriers.

If it could completely prevent establishing the infection in healthy people, that would release so many of us from a burden of fear to infect significant other. Which would make our lives so much easier.

You're totally right in approaching this from the other way. 

Sadly, in order for these to reach availability to the general public would take at least 10 years.

This sounds promising.  Though, who the hell knows whether it will go anywhere.  

 

""We are amazed by the efficacy of this vaccine, but this gets to the point where basically you need to partner with a pharmaceutical company. The hope would be that once the paper is out, and people start seeing the efficacy of this approach, they'll take interest and there'll be people that want to try and push this forward with our help," Smith said."

All of us has only hope on this.. Even if they cant cure this they could produce somethings to prevent new infections. We are told it can even pass during using condoms. If there would be a preventative thing or drug or something we wouldnt suffer this much

I wouldn't think of going that far yet.

I hope that we will be able to have tools to help us detect asymptomatic shedding.

Knowing if there is shedding taking place, we can wiselyhold off any activity and continue later :) 

Kind of like the "I'm on my HSV-period now, lets do it sometime else".

Keep in mind it is not meant to be a cure. It will only impede replication not latent infection. Read their pipeline. :(

      I wanted to validate your choice. He saying 500mg. Plus he was saying it was his favorite for HSV.

      Immediately after it clears Phase 3, they might price Pritelivir in an exorbitant fashion and only prescribe it to immunodeficient patients (AIDS). I'm also curious how fast HSV is expected to evolve resistance against Pritelivir.

      So I disclosed for the first time last week. I was feeling confident after reading all of the positive disclosure stories out there. I was armed with the stats and presented the information in a calm manner as recommended. I was happy to find out that the guy already had a lot of knowledge about it because had an ex w the same issue. It was nice to have sex without having to worry about harboring a secret, I felt normal for once   I got a text from him in the AM and I was hoping for the usual "had a great time, can't wait to see you again" but instead he was blithering on about being paranoid about the contact. We exchanged one more message that day, and today I sent one, no response..... pretty certain I've been ghosted.  I am back to that dark place where I feel like I'm unlovable / unfuckable dreg of society. I'm a single parent which doesn't help, nobody wants a relationship w someone like me... add the herpes and I might as well be a 400 lb amputee on welfare with an IQ of 70. I feel like I am going to have to eventually "settle" for someone that is willing to be with me, but I don't really like them. I feel that a man that is willing to accept this is probably an unwanted outcast himself.  So ultimately I fear I will have nobody, or settle for a guy that disgusts me

      I'm pretty sure I have ghsv1 but it's not confirmed as I test negative via igg blood test but I probably would not fully disclose even if I had 100% proof. Right now I have disclosed that I think I may have had a coldsore and that's it. Turns out the two girls I've disclosed that to said they get coldsores too so it's a non issue. Hsv1 is a little bit different though in terms of prevalence. If I were in your position (assuming you have hsv2) and took antivirals I probably would not feel the need to disclose during hookups. However in a long term relationship I think it's important. When I disclosed that I may have had a cold sore in the past to a girl I was about to get intimate with she disclosed that she had an oral coldsore before and was positive for hepatitis B. I'm glad she disclosed the hep B because I wanted to make sure I had hep b titers. If the same girl disclosed she had hsv2 I would just make sure she's taking antivirals and wear a condom.
