A POSSIBLE new approach to viruses in general

Their work was on the Zika Virus, but it could be potentially be a breakthrough in the field of virology.  Quotes below.  I have also sent an email to Dr. Weaver and asked him about the potential this discovery/strategy will have on the HSV family.  Let's hope it is a breakthrough that could apply to all viruses !!!

"University of Nebraska–Lincoln researchers may have identified a vaccine that would defend against Zika virus without producing antibodies."

"Researcher Eric Weaver described the finding as exciting and novel. He and his team are confident that future experiments will yield significant findings that could have a profound impact on the field of vaccinology."

"If we can figure out the mechanism, we might be able to apply it to other vaccine strategies," said Weaver, an assistant professor of biological sciences affiliated with the Nebraska Center for Virology. "This would be a huge leap for immunology and vaccine research."

Only cure, true cure, will be to cut out the viral DNA (or a few key sequences) to stop the virus from replicating. Vaccines may prime your system to control it better but will never cure it.

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
