Vaccine cure

But they inoculated with HSV AFTERWARDS, no? 

 

"The results 4 sets of experiments with three mice per group were conducted (12 mice in each ‘treatment’ group and 9 mice in each ‘control’ group). Mice were vaccinated on Day 0 with either:

- treatment (CPP-antigen) + adjuvant (There were two separate treatment groups – one using Phylogica’s CPP and another using Tat);

- antigen alone (no CPP) + adjuvant;

- adjuvant alone (no CPP and no antigen); or

- a negative control (no CPP, no antigen and no adjuvant)

Mice were then inoculated with HSV on day 7. Mice were culled on day 13 with tissue samples taken for completion of viral titre assays (measurement of viral burden within those tissues). The results of the experiment are displayed in Figure 2."

I am so confused, I don't know shit about peptide vaccines. Is this a prophylactic or therapeutic vaccine?

I’m going to call the company in a few hours and try to get some more information. It’s 4:30 in the morning in Australia right now.

That is my same question. Of course I am hoping that it is prophylactic and therapeutic.    I have emailed the CEO and while I’m not anticipating a response, should I get one I will immediately share it.  Henry.

To me it sounds preventive :/

As mentioned folks, I am going to call the company later on today (it's super early in Australia). I am not a scientist so I don't really know how peptide vaccines work. However, it seems like other types of peptide vaccines can be either therapeutic or prophylactic. Let's not jump to any conclusions until someone gets an email back or is able to make a phone call.

I know next to nothing about “science”, but it seems that if it would attack on the prophylacticly, couldn’t it also work therapeutically?    Wishing, hoping, praying..

Hope it cures the disease. Really we need a  cure.

Guys this is therapeutic, rear the pdf , they are able to attack the virus in the nerve dendrite cells , basically they are able to cross the bloodbrain barrier.

Any update?

Nope! It’s the weekend. Research facility is closed! (Everyone needs relaxation amirite?) I’ll call on Monday.

This is not yet proven for therapeutic.


Certainly the concept that sits behind the vaccine approach (expansion of viral-specific CD8+ T-cells) is applicable across the two strains of HSV (and beyond). Before we could commit to HSV-2 as a therapeutic application though, two things would need to happen:

1) we would have to demonstrate that the 'prophylactic' protection conferred in the animal model described (in which the vaccine is given before exposure to the virus) translates to 'therapeutic' protection (in which the viral exposure occurs before the vaccination); and

2) we would have to make the strategic decision to pursue HSV-2 as the best application of the technology - many before have gone down that path with limited success in the clinic (https://www.fiercebiotech.com/biotech/more-bad-news-for-vical-as-it-abandons-herpes-vaccine-program).

We will obtain the competitive read-out with the Amal CPP in the first instance and then present that data in Vancouver in January at a conference of leading experts. On the back of that, we will make the call as to how we want to proceed with the program so we should be in a position to give you more colour early next year.

Kind regards,

Rohan

Its way to early to know how this will work in humans. Its interesting but its going to be quite a while. Add it to the 10 year list and hope it doesn't stay stuck in there with the other perpetual 10 year vaccines. Also, HSV may be better able to evade in the human body.

      Hey @Catalyst4 and welcome to the website. There is no relationship between lichen planes or psoriasis to herpes. Follow the treatment recommended by your doctor. If steroids it is then have no worries regarding herpes.

      Hi all - I’ve been getting weird recurrent redness on my glans since January. I foolishly had unprotected sex and this nightmare started a week or so later. It starts off as a small circle of redness that turns oval and then spreads. There is no bump or no fluid and it doesn’t itch and is not painful. It also gets flaky like psoriasis after a week or so then the skin becomes shiny and thick.  I got a biopsy that said it was possible Lichen Planus. But was a herpes infection responsible for triggering it? I had a swab when the inflammation was at it’s worse and it came back nEgative for herpes but I think it was done way too late. My dermatologist says it’s not herpes- but this all started after an unprotected sex encounter so I think it’s related to some infection somehow. It did go away completely with doxycycline and cortisone cream only to come back a couple of weeks later after finishing  the medication .  I’m set to get my blood test in a few weeks but that will only tell me if I’ve been exposed to HSV, not that the redness is actually HSV.  If it is HSV and it’s causing the Lichen Planus or psoriasis how do I treat it? Steroids will make me more susceptible to further outbreaks Does anyone get this shiny skin as well with their outbreak that does not go away on its own? i have pics I’m trying to upload but the size limitation is a problem ...

      Hi @hi202020 note that all immune disorders of over activity are related to the immune system attacking the body tissue. They can be highly serious issues such as: lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes (type 1), Hasimoto’s etc. Prostadynia is an umbrella term for a number of issues in the genital region. Often you are able to drill down to a more specific cause but sometimes not. The issues in the umbrella are such things as prostatitis, pudenal nerve ‘entrapment’, erythromelagia and fibromyalgia to name a few.

      The burning (neuralgia, neuropathy) is common...unfortunately even doctors don't know if it means your shedding or not....not necessarily though. There are a lot of nerve issues with herpes...it's way more a nerve issue than a skin issue. Do the antivirals help you? 
    • Kurdt01
      Short of something none of us knows about that comes completely out of left field (which is entirely possible), our best bet on something anytime soon is Pritelivir....hopefully it works as well as we all hope.
