100% true. Progress is being made. The fact is HSV is one of many infections where the exact mechanisms are play are unknown. This means a lot of (intelligent) guess work is still being done. 

Also, I think the statistic is that only 20% of drugs/vaccines advance from phase II to phase III. This means any new therapy discussed on this forum has approximately a 20% chance or less of making it to market.

That’s pretty depressing :(

yes, but the world doesn´t start and end in the USA, fortunately....living in an era where all the info is shared, we can only hope that other countries work in the same ideas and push a new therapy forward without the influence of the FDA...

That article was pretty generic, are there any follow up articles in how this works?

I couldn’t find anything, looked like more of an advertising thing to me. I don’t think any research has been done at all.

Because there's always someone new who does not make billions. You need to explain the hepatitis c medicine(cure) and why they(big pharma) did not stop making the drug

The patent for aciclovir has expired long ago. Who the fk buys brand valtrex? No its not the big pharma that are bribing people, it´s that FDA requirements are a bit too harsh and that nothing has really met the target. The only thing that seems to have met the target is pritelivir and amenelivir but there are kidney problems with those. Probably quite mild kidney problems however.

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
