Anything more on Friedman's trivalent vaccine?

Recommended Posts

Dr. Harvey Friedman's prophylactic subunit trivalent herpes vaccine sounded very promising a few years ago. In Dr. Josh Bloom's Oct. 2017 article

Dr. Friedman (of the University of Pennsylvania) was still optimistic and indicated that human trials were about 18 months away. That's only 6 months from now. It's not a therapeutic vaccine but if it becomes available for potential partners, it would improve our lives a lot. I know we need to live our lives regardless of this virus.

If the trials show nearly 100% efficacy, I would think they'd try to speed things up and not make us wait another 10 long years!

The trials take a long time, especially if you're checking a prophylactic. Think about it. They are checking to see if the therapy prevents transmission. How do you do that, knowing that you can't give people the therapy and then attempt to give them the disease? Well, you have to take a whole people that are in discordant relationships, give the negative partner the therapy, and then wait a whole lot of time. Since there is phase 1 -3, you have to do that process 3 times over. Then you have to collect the data and write up a paper to be submitted to a journal. That alone takes another year. So even if the trivalent vaccine works, and will be the vaccine we are hoping for, it's going to take about a decade just to verify that.

Tell us why it's going to take a decade again?

      Hello,    I’m three weeks into my first outbreak, the initial ob lasted a little over a week and was excruciating. It started to calm down and I was just waiting for the red marks it had left to disappear completely when another outbreak occurred. I’m really frustrated that it’s not going anywhere and I was just wondering if this is normal? The leaflet I got did say 2-4 weeks but I was hoping to hear others experiences.    Thank you so much

      Hello,    I’m going through the same thing (I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago) and I was just wondering if this stopped or if you’re still getting recurrent obs? I’m not sure what to do just feeling really down that it’s not going away.    Thank you for your time

      Hi,  I was very recently diagnosed with HSV-1 (just over two weeks ago) and I have had “two outbreaks” in that time. The initial outbreak happened three weeks ago and lasted about 8/9 days. It was extremely painful and I was very ill, unable to move or work and completely worn down. The blisters mainly disappeared but I still had some blemishes and discomfort so I knew my body was still fighting the virus off however, this then turned straight back into tingling, itching and then blisters again straight away. I don’t know if this is even classed as a recurrence because I never got completely over the first outbreak but I am so disheartened to have had it happen again immediately after the initial outbreak. The silver lining is that the blisters are smaller, fewer and significantly less painful.   In short, I had an outbreak immediately after my first outbreak and I want to know if this is normal to get two lots of blisters in one go?     Thank you so much for your time    K x
