Amenamevir

hellohello111

I just started reading about this but unfortunately I’m a psych major and am unable to comprehend the scientific narrative associated with the research and findings. 

Can anyone explain this to me in lay terms of which drug this is, is it available on the market, is it effective for hsv1? Thank you to anyone that can help.

Yes,  that drug used to treat shingles.  But also can be used for genital herpes.  Still,  this drug do not cure your condition.

Its superior in effect to Valtrex but has huge issues such as even getting it outside Japan and the enormous cost. Also seems to be reported to have greater side effects.

Thank you for the help. I also read it’s similar to Pritelivir which is close to hitting our market. Guess I’ll just wait for that.

No pritelivir is not close to hitting the market yet.

source on that? For something to hit the market they need to complete the biggest phase which is phase 3 no? Do we even have Phase 2b results from the immunocompromised testings ?

If you read the fast track status of Pritelivir and the assesment from Dr Bloom’s research, it shows the estimation of market availablity in 2020. 

Yes, phase three is the biggest and longest but given the fast track it will be approved faster than you think

That is the best hope right now and probably for the next 10-15 years. The only thing that sucks about new drugs is that there aren't any long term safety studies. CRISPR still needs to be fine tuned and unless one of these Bio companies hits a homerun then even this may take a good decade to get close to curing it. But Pritelivir, can bring us some sense of normalcy until the cure. Pritelivir can probably even knock out a lot of the stigma surrounding HSV especially to those who choose to be educated about it.

Yupp that is very true. BX### might come out in some form too later on. If that is safe its gonna be even better I would assume. I think blisters will be easy to treat away in a near future but the itching Im not optimistic about.:/

That’s what I’m saying. I’ve had this virus for so long I wouldn’t know what to do without it. Pritelivir is a cure for me. I don’t care about taking a pill everyday for the rest of my life if it eliminates outbreaks and lessens my chance of passing it on. I would like to spend the remainder of my life enjoying the good things so Pritelivir is my hope for that.

Why is pritelivir vetter than aciclovir?

Just going off the science, it works doubly hard as valtrex and is even successful with immunocompromised patients.

I’m just worried it will be hard to get if it is only for immunocompromised people

It’s not only for them. It was fast tracked through the FDA for these people but if approved it would be available for everyone.

The interesting thing is that one of the studies had a dose of 400mg weekly (if I recall correctly). That would be awesome.

I know, 400mg would be awesome. Just patiently waiting on word from the company or FDA on its status.

Take 400mg every Sunday and a low dose valtrex daily and that may be a functional cure. Functional cure=Peace of Mind. We would just need bomb ass medical insurance until Pritelivir goes generic.

That would take 20 years for that to happen. Not sure when the drug was invented, but the 20 years starts from when they patented the drug. At least some of the 20 year timeline has been reduced. :)

The drug was patented as early as 10+ years ago. I think 12. Nevertheless we could still purchase the non-generic version until the generic came out which is fine with me.

Is there any study about this dosage?  That if you take 400mg every Sunday and a low dose (how many dose?)  valtrex daily = functional cure.  I would be interested to know.  As far as i know,  i haven't find that kind of information

I'm speculating that a synergistic effect would null shedding to close to nothing if not 0%. Pritelivir does a good job in itself but using a low dose Valtrex in addition to Pritelivir may also reduce chances of gaining resistance to Pritelivir. Again I'm reaching a bit but nonetheless possible scenarios. All this would have to go through a clinical trial which would benefit Aicuris which could in the future market a functional cure until they figure the whole CRISPR thing out. 

*The 400 mg Pritelivir dose was used weekly. It wasn't the strongest of the all the doses used but indeed very effective and it beats taking a pill every day. We would probably forget that we had HSV until our cell phone alarm came on Sunday evening to remind us to take  our weekly dose. 

*I'm also guessing condoms + Pritelivir would have next to no chance of transmission. 

*This is my hope. We all need hope. I think we can all agree on this.

Based on current HIV treatment, I would imagine they will create a one-pill combo of pritelivir and valtrex and sell it as a daily pill. But once a week pritelivir + valtrex might also work in the meantime.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
