That jury is still out… I’ve talked to someone overseeing crispr experiments on HSV… It’s far from miraculous.

What do you mean it's far from miraculous? i.e. be specific

Please elaborate. Crispr should be able to alter the virus' dna and be a cure.

Not really that simple. Crispr has problems getting at the latent virus's dna because the dna is too tightly wound. I don't understand all the details but no one as yet has been able to do much with the latent virus. That said, Keith Jerome's lab has shown some success with that issue. They're using a different editor, not Crispr, and have been able to clear 20 - 30% of the latent virus. There's still much to be done.

Thanks for that info. Well 20 - 30 % of the latent virus is a good start. Before now latent hsv1 was untouchable. This year we have also accurately mapped the actual physical virus for the first time. We can now finally see what the virus actually looks like. We are on the cusp of a cure. It's only a matter of time. Stay faithful people.

I know its a long time but imagine research and knowledge gained within the next 10 years. It should have us at a cures doorstep. (knock on wood)
