Well, I am hopeful that this will be available in at least 7-10 years.

Hopefully when I am 50 when my penis is barely working, they will have a cure.  That way I can have sex again right before my social life ends.

      So I’m certainly no doctor/scientist, but this new CRISPR tool sounds pretty promising. Towards the end of the article, they talk about how the new CasRx was able to penetrate the neurons in their in vitro experiments with an 80% success rate for treating FTD. Neat stuff!

      Hi. It seems like posts on this forum about Crispr/Cas9 in its potential to cure HSV 1 is limited.  I have not found any recent posts on this subject. Also,  I can't find updated articles from google on this subject either.  What is the current status with this? 
      I read about a hopeful research group lead by Dr. Bloom at the University of Florida conducting Crispr/Cas9 research to cure HSV 1 and possibly HSV 2, although I'm not sure if their information is updated. Here's the link to the professor's lab info:
      http://mgm.ufl.edu/faculty/faculty-home-pages/david-c-bloom-p-h-d/ 
      So, what is the current progress with Crispr/Cas9 research to cure HSV 1 and/or HSV 2.
      Thanks.

      they use gene editing at 11 medical centers, they didnt give a lot information on their trials but i will follow their trial that will be on hpv. They will use crispr as topical cream it will be interesting. In 2 years we will see how effective is crispr on humans and plus everyday they are finding some tools to improve crispr’s efficiency.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?
